Atlas Copco introduces new pump technology to portfolio

ATLAS Copco Power and Flow has launched a new technology platform for its WEDA D70 electric submersible dewatering pumps described as enabling construction and industrial sites to remove water more reliably and improve productivity.

The Wear Deflector features a hydraulic design, which Atlas Copco said provides a ‘high level of pump efficacy’.

“With our new platform we are setting a new high standard for pump performance and customers can be sure of a robust and reliable pump that delivers time and time again,” said Bart Duijvelaar, product marketing manager – submersible pumps at Atlas Copco Power and Flow. “Solids suspended in water can cause an impeller to wear and prematurely fail, however, this innovative design means the pumps are exceptionally long-lasting. The impellers are also manufactured from high-chrome stainless steel (55 HRC) and as such, have high hardness and exceptional wear resistance.”

The WEDA D70 drainage pumps are said to be ‘ideal’ for general dewatering applications, pumping groundwater and raw water at construction and industrial sites. Features include shock absorbers for rough-handling resistance, and ‘easily accessible’ oil inspection plugs.

The technology platform is initially being applied to the WEDA D70 pump and in the future will be made available to the whole WEDA D drainage range.
