Xylem Announces Enhancements to Its Flygt 2600 Drainage Pump
Xylem Inc. has announced enhancements to its Flygt 2600 drainage pump series. The 2600 range of pumps is now even more reliable and durable than previously, for use in tough dewatering conditions and applications.
Xylem will unveil the enhanced Flygt 2600 drainage pump series at the Bauma International Trade Fair, 15th-21st April in Munich.
Xylem has also announced that it will unveil a new submersible dewatering pump range at the show; comprising four new pumps ranging from 4 to 18 kW. The new range is ideal for water removal in the toughest applications in mining, tunnelling and other extremely harsh dewatering conditions. Created by the designers of the world’s most successful submersible drainage pump, Xylem’s new product is a much awaited addition to the company’s product portfolio and is certain to make a big impression on the market when it is revealed in Munich.
The Flygt 2600 drainage pumps feature Xylem’s patented DuraSpin hydraulic system, Hard-Iron impeller, Plug-In Cartridge seal and are three times more wear-resistant than conventional drainage pumps. Fewer components mean less spare parts to store as well as being one of the easiest products to service on the market. New enhancements to Xylem’s Flygt 2600 range include increased durability on the seal system, greater protection against corrosion, a simplified design and capability for dry running.
Daniel Westin, dewatering product manager for Xylem said, “The enhancements to the Flygt 2600 range has resulted in unmatched wear-resistance, consistent performance over time and unrivalled ease of service. At Xylem, we continually consult with our customers to identify their specific needs and provide the solutions that best respond. Increasingly demanding conditions onsite and a changed business environment where resources are limited mean that customers in the dewatering segment need ever more reliable and durable technologies.[...]"
