Xylem made the announcement at the opening day of the Hillhead 2014 trade show for the mining and quarrying industry Hillhead Quarry, Buxton, UK. Xylem’s range of Godwin and Flygt brand dewatering pumps is on display at the show at booth M9. Xylem’s rental bank expansion will give customers the option to choose from an additional 20 assets of Godwin dewatering pumps, including the high head Godwin HL series, the Godwin CD and NC (non-clog) series. Xylem will also showcase its Flygt BIBO range at Hillhead 2014. Flygt BIBO incorporates several proven design features taken from the original and legendary dewatering pump, as well as innovative enhancements that give the new pumps unmatched wear resistance and uptime capability. Durable and robust, Xylem’s Flygt BIBO series has been specifically designed for the toughest dewatering environments including mining, quarrying, construction and tunnelling.
Xylem will also demonstrate its Flygt 2600 drainage pump series at the event. Consisting of six drainage and three solids-handling sludge pumps, the Flygt 2600 series is suitable for use in worksites of any size, handling flows from low to medium and high to super high. The pumps are three times more wear-resistant than conventional drainage pumps and can handle flows of up to 100 litres per second, heads to 90 metres and solids of up to 80 mm in diameter. The Flygt 2600 drainage pumps feature Xylem’s patented DuraSpin hydraulic system, Hard-Iron impeller and Plug-In Cartridge seal. New enhancements to Xylem’s Flygt 2600 range include increased durability on the seal system, greater protection against corrosion, a simplified design and capability for dry running.
