Sulzer introduces new Synconta lifting station

It is ideal for the automatic pumping of wastewater and sewage from areas below the backwash level in accordance with DIN EN 12050-1.

The new Synconta has a stronger tank design than the previous range and it can be provided with an optional concrete cover for the load class D 400, which means that it can be driven over for example by a truck. Synconta is designed for fitting with Sulzer pumps of the Piranha, AS, and MF ranges. The new lifting station replaces the existing Synconta 801, 901-902 range. A concrete cover is available for areas with either pedestrian or vehicular traffic. The tank can be fitted with a plastic lockable lid when installed in areas without any kind of traffic, for example in garden flower beds. The new Synconta lifting station has a capacity of 977 litres and is equipped with a stainless steel discharge pipe. Synconta 901B is equipped with one and Synconta 902B with two pumps. The standard installation depth is 1690 mm, but it can be extended to a maximum of 2500 mm with an extension piece. The station is provided with four inflow ports for DIN push-on connection and with two DN100 ports for venting and use as a cable duct. The pump is easy to install and maintain without entering the sump. The pipe work and gate valves are made of high quality stainless steel. For level control there are three options: a pressure pipe, a float switch or a float sensor. The maximum allowable temperature of the medium is 40°C, short term up to 60°C.
