The global market leader in dewatering pumps for the construction industry therefore advances in one fell swoop to become one of the largest suppliers of pump technology for sewage logistics and treatment. “We are significantly extending our product programme for Europe,” announces Managing Director, Daniel Weippert, in the European Headquarters of Tsurumi (Europe) GmbH. “We intend to expand Sewage pumps to our second largest pillar in longer term.”
Considering all model variations of the new sewage line, Tsurumi will have available around 500 pumps in Europe: this is almost double the amount the supply programme has offered up to now, which mostly focused on construction dewatering. Sewage pumps and submersible aerators for preliminary biological purification have been on offer for a long time of course. However, the latest expansion will turn the Japanese manufacturer into a full-range provider also in Europe: The smallest sewage pump has a 150 Watt motor power, and the largest has a thousand times more, namely 160 kW. Therefore the strongest submersible pump now comes from Tsurumi’s sewage department and no longer from the construction industry.
But that is not enough: Most of the new sewage pumps are also gradually going to be supplied with explosion proof motors in line with ATEX. Something entirely new at Tsurumi Europe is the option of dry installation in pumping stations. For this, pumps are also furnished with cooling jackets amongst other features.
As an example of its extended programme, Tsurumi shows sewage pumps from the new BY-series with open and closed channel impellers, the UY-series with vortex impeller as well as shredder pumps (grinders) as a supplement to the reliable C-series. The new product programme will be introduced for the first time at the IFAT and will be gradually available by the beginning of 2017.
The TRN submersible aerators are particularly impressive: They whisk surrounding air into the water tank to initiate biological purification. This technology competes with popular membrane aerators, but is considered to be superior in almost all aspects. Tsurumi’s LSC residual water pump can also be seen on the exhibition stand (in live operation). It continuously removes water from flat surfaces to a residual height of only 1 mm without requiring supervision. When the pump is lifted, water does not run back. The manufacturer will introduce the new “Family” as the smallest pump of its type at the exhibition. The midget only weighs 3400 grams and can hide behind an iPad, but manages a capacity of up to 5 m3/h and a maximum head of 6 m: a practical all-round pump for all tradesmen and working conditions.
The manufacturer’s success is not least founded on the design features of the pumps, some differing significantly from the competition – the manufacturer will provide comprehensive information on this at the exhibition, showing sectional models for example.
