Atlas Copco adds WEDA+ dewatering pumpsPublished 15/9 at 11:21
Atlas Copco Portable Energy has added to its family of medium and large submersible dewatering pumps with the WEDA+ plug-and-play range.
The new range offer up to 20% reduction in power consumption compared to previous models, combined with greater efficiency, simplified maintenance and increased capacity.
The WEDA+ range comprises five models: the WEDA 50, with normal and high head variants, and the WEDA 60+, available in normal head, high head and super high head configuration. The top-of-the-range super high head WEDA 60+ is 15% smaller and 20% lighter than other pumps in its class. The latest pumps offer flow rate capabilities of 1,020litres/min to 2,425litres/min and a maximum head of up to 69m.
Atlas Copco has introduced rotation control and phase failure protection across all WEDA+ models to prevent the risk of the impeller rotating in the wrong direction. In addition, the entry system can accommodate a wider range of cable configurations, with a motor design offering higher efficiency and reduced start current.
“The new WEDA+ pumps are easy-to-move and install in a wide range of dewatering applications,” said Atlas Copco Portable Energy pumps vice president Wim Moor. “We have taken our portable and powerful electric submersible offering to the next level by focussing on efficiency and new features that will simplify the customer experience and enhance their productivity.”
The modular construction simplifies separation of principal components and all stainless steel fastenings are the same size. This means that one tool can be used to change all seals, impellers and other parts in just a matter of minutes.
