Argal sump pumps are centrifugal pumps with vertical axle, column and casing submerged, electric motor long coupled to pump by mean of its own stool or short coupled directly to the pump; are always actuated with an electric motor placed well above the liquid to be pumped. No metallic part is ever in contact with the fluid pumped; designed to pump aggressive chemical liquids are characterized, even in the smaller details, by constructive solutions conceived to maximize service life and functionality.
VERTICAL PUMPS DESIGNED FOR THE WORLDWIDE MARKET
Thermoplastic Vertical Sump Pumps
KGK and Equipro range of Argal vertical sump pumps have column and volute casing submerged in the liquid while motor, its support and delivery pipe are assembled to the common base plate which rests on top of the sump well above of the liquid.
The lengths of the columns varies accordingly to ranges ;
Equipro HME – column length from 275 up to 450 mm
Equipro KME – column length from 600 up to 1500 mm
KGK – column length from 500 up to 4000 mm.
All components of the pumps wetted by the liquid pumped deliver excellent chemical resistance and are manufactured in PP or PVDF.
PP polypropylene , thermoplastic U.V. stabilised
PVDF Vynilidene polyfluoride
Argal sump pumps are fitted with vapour seal systems.
Except for pump series HME and Equipro, whose shaft is overhung and does not require guides, all other pump design (KME & KGK) foresee a sliding guide bushing system ; it is located in the lower side of the pump close to the casing and is available with different choices of materials depending upon main characteristics of the liquid pumped.
Liquid Laden With Solids Or Slightly Abrasive Liquid
Different configurations of guiding elements allow to pump liquids laden with solids in suspension or moderately abrasive.
All vertical sump pumps host IEC compliant electric motors (or NEMA compliant motors on demand).
The pumps of EQUIPRO range are short coupled and can be mated to IEC normalised motors without dismantling the pump.
Are long coupled, vertical sump pumps fitted with a compact motor, support inclusive of bearing and flexible join, designed right from the drawing board to ease maintenance and to be repaired worldwide in the most challenging situations with common tools.
