Grindex drainage and sludge pumps

September 2013, Vol. 68 No. 9

Grindex’s launch of its updated range of drainage and sludge pumps include the Minex, Minette, Minor, Major, Master and Matador drainage pumps and the Salvador, Senior and Sandy sludge pumps. The units deliver improved pumping performance, while the need for maintenance and spare parts has been reduced.

A new seal design with a robust metal housing offers improved heat transfer and sealing function for a longer life. And fewer parts reduce the risk of leakage and speeds up the maintenance process. A new lifting handle and a deeper groove in the strainer also means they are more ergonomic, while the Minor, Major, Senior and Sandy have new lifting eyelets for hooks. Also the dry running performance has been improved thanks to more and better air valves, and larger oil volume.

Improved hard‐wearing features include new wear resistant impellers for the Minex and Minette drainage pumps, a wear resistant coating of polyurethane for all sludge pumps and a polyurethane‐option for Minor to Matador drainage pumps.

A further safeguard measure is the proven SMART motor protection, which cuts the power if the temperature gets too high or if it loses a phase. The SMART also ensures the impeller turns in the right direction. 708.781.2135, grindex.com
