Enhancements to Xylem’s market-leading Flygt 2000 dewatering pump range result in increased durability and superior performance

January 20, 2016

SCHAFFHAUSEN, Switzerland, January 20, 2016 – Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues, has today announced enhancements to its market-leading Flygt 2000 drainage pump range. The new and improved Flygt pumps will offer customers an even more reliable and robust selection of large and mid-sized drainage pumps engineered for the most challenging dewatering conditions and applications. Xylem will showcase the enhanced drainage pumps at the Bauma International Trade Fair in Munich in April 2016.

 

Xylem's new 25 kilowatt (kW) (30 horsepower (hp)) Flygt 2190 mid-sized submersible dewatering pump is built to handle tough, abrasives-laden liquids. The Flygt 2190 pump is available with two impeller options: the signature 'Dura-Spin' safeguards against wear by sweeping abrasive particles away from the impeller neck while the semi-open impeller increases uptime by preventing fibrous solids from obstructing the pump. The pump's conical trim sleeve, a quick and easy to use impeller-adjustment feature, restores clearances to near-original condition boosting pump performance, while robust cable entry ensures safe, continuous operation. The new and improved Flygt 2201 shares the same proven technology as its robust and reliable sibling, the Flygt 2190, in addition to providing customers with a super-high head alternative with its two-stage hydraulics version.

 

Xylem's Flygt 2400 stainless steel pump, the first stainless steel-only pump in the Flygt 2400 series, provides customers in the mining sector with a durable, super-high head pump suitable for transporting chemically-aggressive mine water. Target ores such as gold, silver and copper are often rich in sulfide which, when exposed to water and air during the mining process, reacts to form sulfuric acid. The Flygt 2400 stainless steel drainage pump is designed to provide excellent wear-resistance for reliable and efficient dewatering in this demanding dewatering environment.

Kristoffer Kratz, Product and Application Manager of Xylem's Dewatering business said, "Xylem's Flygt 2000 range offers customers a comprehensive suite of exceptionally robust pumps built for long life. These new and enhanced wear-resistant pumps are engineered to handle the most challenging liquids as well as being suitable for dry running and snoring operation. These highly efficient, low maintenance pumps are ideal for large and smaller scale jobs that require reliable, flexible dewatering solutions."
