Grundfos releases SL submersible wastewater pumps

The solids-handing pump series, in motor ranges from 1.5 to 15 horsepower (HP), is available in two types of impellers: • SLV/SuperVortex Impeller: This pump type provides the free passage of solids up to 4 inches in diameter, making it ideal for liquids with a content of solids, fibers or gassy sludge. • SL1/S Tube Impeller: This pump type also accommodates solids up to 4 inches, but is designed particularly for large flows of raw sewage.

The SLV and SL1 pumps are designed for permanent submerged installation in demanding applications such as municipal wastewater, network pumping stations, wastewater treatment plants, public buildings, housing projects and other commercial applications.

The series is designed with IE3 premium efficiency motor components, quick removable pump housing clamps, cartridges seals, quick removable plug in cord, and smooth exterior components for high efficiency performance along with an easy to service pump.
