Increased pump performance with new lifting station

Source Wilo

Wilo Salmson Pumps has launched a new sewage lifting system capable of servicing multi-family dwellings and providing both reliable and safe pump operation. The Drainlift M, which is available in both single and double-pump configurations, incorporates a number of features that provide continuous sewage movement and intrinsically safe sanitation.

Delivering reliability and performance, the Drainlift M can provide safe sanitary pumping to both residential and commercial properties. Its cavernous 100/150l tank, featuring a sloping collection chamber, ensures sewage is conveyed directly to the impeller without providing the opportunity for sediment to form. In the case of an emergency, a battery-operated alarm, which works independently of the mains electricity supply, is automatically triggered.

The Drainlift M also minimises installation times by incorporating a fully integrated non-return valve, and reduces noise transmissions through internal insulation strips. The unique and versatile unit, which weighs just 45Kg, can be attached to existing collecting tanks via the system's easily-to-install feed pipes.

Capable of pumping waste at a rate of 55m3/h, the Drainlift M has been launched in two formats - the DrainLift M1 single-pump system and its double-pump counterpart; the DrainLift M2. While both units can pump sewage to a height of 7.5m, the DrainLift M2 has the added versatility of adjusting its performance to prevailing conditions through alternating, standby and peak-load modes.

Mark Sowden, Marketing Manager at Wilo, said: "The DrainLift M has been designed to provide sewage pumping for a range of property types and sanitary demands. More importantly, its unique design brings together performance and safety in a single system."

The DrainLift M joins Wilo's extensive stable of easy-to-use waste and sewage lifting units, which includes wastewater and sewage systems, and moulded sump pumps.
