requirements for the ATEX European Directive for protection of workers
in explosive atmospheres. There are presently 11 models available from
three ranges: the BX-Series, CX-Series and UX-Series.
Stefan Hörnschemeyer, marketing manager of Tsurumi Europe, says the
new range is already proving popular. “These 11 models are a great start
to our range of ATEX-certified sewage pumps and the positive feedback
from our customers means we are already planning to extend this line
further,” he says. “The pumps offer customers a range of options
depending on the type of fluid being pumped and the throughput
required. And of course they feature Tsurumi’s trademark durability and
ease of maintenance.”
Applications for the ATEX pumps will be in sewage plants, pumping stations for untreated wastewater and manure tanks (used in the farming industry). The BX-Series, CX-Series and UX-Series each feature individual characteristics for different uses.
Perhaps the most significant is the CX-Series which is equipped with a cutter mechanism which chops solid matter in the fluid allowing it to be pumped more easily. This cutter mechanism combines a carbide blade integrated into a non-clog impeller and a saw-shaped inner surface of the suction cover.
This makes the CX-Series suitable for pumping wastewater or liquids carrying waste and solid matter. The UX-Series comprises four models and features a vortex impeller which is used mainly to avoid clogging or wear caused by large or stringy solids in the fluid. It does this by accelerating the fluid to great speed to smoothly move it from the inlet to the outlet.
In addition to the standard accessories, the UX-Series comes with a special screwed-in mating flange. The BX-Series features an impeller with a wide channel from inlet to exit to prevent internal clogging
by solids sucked in via the inlet. They come with the cable and flange and are available with the optional Guide Rail Fitting and Discharge Bend.
