Flygt submersibles operate directly in the liquid
being pumped, which means they require neither special
housing nor a superstructure to support them, conside ably
reducing construction costs. They are smaller than
non submersible counterparts as the motor and hydraulics are
integrated into one compact unit, resulting in smaller
pumping stations that are less complex to build. Operating
submerged they take up less space, and noise and cooling problems are virtually eliminated.
This series of pumps has an extensive performan-ce range
and can be used in a variety of applications:
Pumping sewage in treatment plants
An extensive range of hydraulic units, such as impeller and
volute, are available to handle different types of media.
The application ranges up to approx. 2700l/s. A variety of
drive units, with motor ratings up to 680kW, are also
available. The standard version of these pumps are made in
cast iron and for more demanding applications the pumps can
be supplied in industrial configurations. Explosionproof
versio-ns are also available.
Methods of installation
To reduce the cost of installation Flygt has
standardized many of the main elements of pumping
stations so that they can be combined to match
specific site conditions.
The examples illustrated here show the flexibility of
the system, and provide some guidelines for
optimizing the design of your own station.
