Xylem Water Solutions South Africa is ready to debut enhancements to its market-leading Flygt 2000 drainage pump range at the Electra Mining Africa this year.

Xylem Flygt drainage pumps Elecra MiningThe new and improved Flygt pumps will offer customers an even more reliable and robust selection of large and mid-sized drainage pumps engineered for the most challenging dewatering conditions and applications. Xylem will showcase these enhanced drainage pumps on Stand G10 in Hall 6 at the Nasrec expo taking place from 12 to 16 September.

Xylem’s new 25 kW Flygt 2190 mid-sized submersible dewatering pump is built to handle tough, abrasives-laden liquids. The Flygt 2190 pump is available with two impeller options: the signature closed impeller with ‘Dura-Spin’ safeguards against wear by sweeping abrasive particles away from the impeller neck, while the semi-open impeller increases uptime by preventing fibrous solids from obstructing the pump.

The pump’s conical trim sleeve, a quick and easy to use impeller-adjustment feature, restores clearances to near-original condition boosting pump performance, while robust cable entry ensures safe, continuous operation. The new and improved Flygt 2201SH shares the same proven technology as its robust and reliable sibling the Flygt 2190, in addition to providing customers with a super-high head alternative with its two-stage hydraulics.

Xylem’s Flygt 2400 stainless steel pump, the first stainless steel-only pump in the Flygt 2400 series, provides customers in the mining sector with a durable, super-high head pump suitable for transporting chemically-aggressive mine water. Target ores such as gold, silver and copper are often rich in sulphide which, when exposed to water and air during the mining process, reacts to form sulphuric acid. The Flygt 2400 stainless steel drainage pump is designed to provide excellent wear-resistance for reliable and efficient dewatering in this demanding dewatering environment.

Kristoffer Kratz, product and application manager of Xylem’s dewatering business said, “Xylem’s Flygt 2000 range offers customers a comprehensive suite of exceptionally robust pumps built for long life. These new and enhanced wear-resistant pumps are engineered to handle the most challenging liquids as well as being suitable for dry running and snoring operation. These highly efficient, low maintenance pumps are ideal for large and smaller scale jobs that require reliable, flexible dewatering solutions.”

Other top-of-the-line products and services being featured include those from all of Xylem’s global pump brands: Godwin; Flygt; Sanitaire; Leopold; Wedeco and Lowara.

A team of experts will also be on hand throughout the week of Electra Mining Africa to discuss product-specifics and to guide visitors towards the best possible solutions for individual requirements.

“We are looking forward to this year’s show;” says Lorraine Smart, marketing manager for Xylem Water Solutions South Africa. “The team has been hard at work putting together the best product and service selection for Electra Mining and we look forward to interacting with visitors in this vibrant setting.”

With cutting-edge displays and an extensive portfolio of world-class products and experts – Xylem Water Solutions South Africa is eager to share the experience of its brand-excellence to visitors at Electra Mining this year.
