New small sewage lifting unit
At this year's ISH, KSB Aktiengesellschaft, Frankenthal, will present its latest sewage lifting unit to the public for the first time. Named Ama-Sani, it is the smallest product in the manufacturer's product line and supplements the company's existing scope. It allows house owners to maintain, for example, a guest bathroom below backwash level, say, in a basement, from where waste water would normally not run into the sewer unaided.
Its maximum capacity is around 4000 litres per hour at a maximum head of 4 metres. Designed to meet EN 12050-3 stipulations, the sewage lifting unit comes fitted with a 100-mm direct connection for the toilet bowl and two 40-mm inlet nozzles for connection of a bidet, shower or wash basin.
Its low-noise cutter is positioned on top, and the strainer basket is easy to clean without removing the pump, should the need arise. With a drain pipe diameter of no more than 25 or 32 mm, laying and mounting the pipe can be done quickly and at a moderate price. A swing check valve prevents emptying of the discharge line. The plastic tank, which has a capacity of approximately 12 litres, can either be vented through an activated carbon filter, absolutely free of bad odours, into the installation area, or to the outside via a vent pipe. In addition, the unit features an overflow valve to prevent the unintentional discharge of fluid.
