Pumps And Dewatering Equipment: Equipment Spotlight
WEDA submersible pumps are available in nine different models, including a sludge pump, and are available to handle applications of any size. The cost-effective, unique sealing system allows the user to change seals, impellers and other parts in just minutes. The replaceable cartridge seals include the necessary bearings, lubricant and other components. The modular design creates a lightweight product with fewer parts and minimal service hours for lower total cost. Machined slots also make separation of the various parts of each pump easier. Since the stainless steel bolts and nuts are a uniform size, only one tool is needed for maintenance. Other WEDA pump features include built-in starter and motor protection, optional automatic level control, adjustable wear-resistant rubber diffusers, and hardened high chrome impellers. 800.732.6762, atlascopco.us
