Hall A1, Stand 350

An ANDRITZ sewage dry pump -

Innovative pump solutions for a sustainable future – partnership, efficiency, and quality will be ANDRITZ Pumps’ motto at IFAT in Munich this year.

Instead of exhibiting in the pump hall, ANDRITZ has decided to present its entire portfolio for water and wastewater at a joint stand in Hall A1, Stand 350.

In the field of pumps, ANDRITZ will mainly present the ANDRITZ sewage dry pump (ASD), the latest member of the sewage series. This series is characterized by its modular design - it is interchangeable from the wastewater spiral (3 impellers) to the clear water spiral (3 impellers). The pump is also highly resistant to clogging. As a result of this series, a wet-installed version (with ip68 motor) is also available.

At IFAT in Munich, ANDRITZ will also highlight the technology of pumps used as turbines, which will be discussed in more detail during a presentation on the Green Stage on Monday, 13 May 2024, at 12:30pm.

Another focus area will be ANDRITZ’s high-pressure pump for the water sector. Thanks to this pump’s unique high efficiency, it greatly reduces users’ energy consumption. This means that the pump recoups the costs of its purchase and installation in a short space of time.
