Home Engineering Pumps, Valves, Hydraulics, Pneumatics New suction trailer a troubleshooting trailblazer

WERNER Pumps has created a new trailer-mounted 6-inch centrifugal pump unit which it says can be used to pump water, as well as solids, in maintenance and troubleshooting applications, such as clearing manholes or dealing with sewage spills.

“We developed this non-clogging, self-priming sewage pump unit primarily to help meet the needs of our existing customers, many of whom require this type of equipment to complement their larger jetting trucks they have procured from us,” said MD Sebastian Werner.

“We do our best to be a one-stop-shop for our customers, and we’ve seen that there’s clearly a demand for this type of machine as we’ve already sold several in the few months since we built the first one.”

Like all of the trucks and trailers in the Werner Pumps range (excluding the Rapid Response Vehicle), this unit is 100% locally manufactured at the company’s premises in Springs.

It features a heavy-duty diesel tank, 4-cylinder air-cooled Kirloskar engine, SP6 self-priming sewage pump, heavy-duty strobe light and a side-mounted control panel. Designed for stable performance and reliable operation, the unit operates at 750-1450rpm with a flow rate of 2084-4167 L/min, between 5 and 30 kilowatts.

Werner said Its back-pull-out construction makes it convenient to use in a variety of applications, from pumping rainwater and common sewage to use on municipal drainage projects and construction sites.

“It’s also suited to use in the paper, textile, food processing, chemical, utilities, mining, tanning and water purification industries,” he said adding that the lead-time on one of these units is roughly three weeks from order to delivery.
