Innovative products at the IFAT exhibition
ABS will present new and innovative products for Water & Wastewater pumping and treatment.
- The next generation of AFP pumps with ContraBlock
- Self-cleaning propeller design
- AQUALEVEL® control units
The next generation of AFP pumps with ContraBlockTM
In 1967, ABS invented the ContraBlock™ hydraulics for clog-free pumping of raw, fibrous and bulky sewage. ABS engineers have now developed the next generation of AFP pumps with ContraBlock™ hydraulics. This new range will be presented at IFAT.
Self-cleaning propeller design
ABS will also present the new axial-flow impellers for low head – high-capacity VUP pumps. The self-cleaning propeller design, which has been proved for many years in sewage treatment plants, together with ABS mixers and FlowBoosters®, is now adapted to pump impeller profiles. ABS has improved pump efficiency and NPSH (Net Positive Suction Head), by using stainless steel wear rings and austenitic cast iron impellers.
Operational and maintenance costs are as important as purchase price and energy consumption when calculating the Life Cycle Cost of a pumping station. For optimum reliability and minimum maintenance costs, state-of-the-art level sensors and electrical control and telemetry units must control pumping stations.
ABS is now launching the new AQUALEVEL® range. The AQUALEVEL® units control pumping stations with up to four pumps and can also be used to connect SCABA agitators and telemetry systems. The successfully introduced SMG controller, first shown at IFAT in 1999, is now also available with a plug-in modem for single or dual channel telephone communication and for GSM communication.
ABS also produces float switches, pneumatic level sensors, hydrostatic pressure and level sensors which makes the AQUALEVEL® component range complete, to ensure a reliable pumping stations operation.
