Sulzer launches IEC motor compatible CPE process pump

1 min read

A few years ago, Sulzer launched its CPE ANSI (American National Standards Institute) centrifugal pump range. Now, the company is providing an IEC (International Electrotechnical Commission) motor compatible pump range.

The CPE process pump is designed for a variety of industrial applications, such as clean or slightly contaminated liquids, viscous liquids, and fibrous slurries. It meets the requirements of ASME B73.1 (American Society of Mechanical Engineers) applied to chemical processes. A heating jacket option is available for applications that require a specific temperature to enable smooth pumping operation.   

Sulzer extended the pump range with IEC compatibility that features IEC motors, base plates, and couplings. The CPE pumps are manufactured in the US, Finland, and China. The CPE pump with an IEC motor is an alternative for a process pump with higher pressure or temperature than an ISO5199 pump can reach.

The manufacturer claims that this pump offers the highest efficiency in the ANSI pump market, offering savings in the total cost of ownership (TCO) and a reduced environmental footprint.

"We are happy that we can also offer the CPE pump in countries where IEC motors are required. This pump is the best fit for a wide range of industrial applications and a welcome addition to our process pump portfolio," says Jouni Lehtinen, head of sales at Sulzer.
