Sulzer introduces high-efficiency recirculation pump
04 April 2016
Sulzer has introduced a new submersible recirculation pump type ABS XRCP 800 PA with a completely new design.
The new pump series is developed for the pumping and recirculation of activated sludge in wastewater treatment plants during the nitrification and denitrification process, as well as for the pumping of storm, surface, and river water. It complements the submersible recirculation pump series ABS RCP.
The submersible recirculation pump type XRCP is designed as a compact, water-pressure-tight unit, including the propeller and bracket. The automatic coupling system uses a single guide rail and guarantees a quick and economical installation.
The XRCP is available in two standard material versions; cast iron and stainless steel. The maximum temperature of the medium for continuous operation is 40°C (104°F).
The XRCP 800 PA series pumps are equipped with a submersible premium efficiency IE3 squirrel cage and 3-phase, 4-pole, 50 Hz (60Hz) motors with a power range up to 22 kW. Their insulation class is F (155°C).
Sulzer’s present submersible recirculation pump series ABS RCP will be maintained in parallel with the new XRCP series for the time being.
