The KW-LC pump is suitable for a wide range of applications such as water supply, HVAC, hot water up to 90°C, drinking water and cooling water applications. It has delivery sizes up to 200 mm, a discharge capacity of up to 550 m³/hr (150 LPS), a total head of up to 52 metres, and maximum working pressure of 16 bar.
