Atlas Copco launches electric self-priming dewatering pumps

ATLAS Copco has launched a new range of electric surface self-priming dewatering pumps.

The E-Pump range comprises different models with a canopy and open set configuration. The solution is designed for applications including sewage bypass, in the municipality sector and construction projects with access to a power source.

The range offers an electric alternative to diesel-powered surface dewatering pumps during pumping operations. This allows customers to reduce their emission footprint and operate in emission-restrictive areas with no fuel consumption.

While the PAC electric pumps – an open configuration range with a galvanized frame – will mostly address the North American market, the E PAS is designed with a canopy to meet customer needs in Europe.

The E PAS is described as having a ‘unique intelligent priming solution’ that ensures the pump’s priming system only runs when necessary, reducing energy consumption and noise generation under normal operating conditions. The priming system ensures no carryover contamination, and the canopy set units are up to 120% spillage-free.

“The E PAS and PAC electric lines of surface dewatering pumps are an exciting addition to the electric-powered range of products from Atlas Copco,” says Saksham Dube, global marketing manager at Atlas Copco Power & Flow. “They offer excellent performance, low cost of ownership, reduced footprint and unique digital connectivity, contributing towards Atlas Copco’s efforts to create a more sustainable future.”
