Xylem produces 4 millionth Flygt wastewater pump at Sweden facility
Xylem recently announced that it has produced the 4 millionth Flygt wastewater pump at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sweden.
EMMABODA, SWEDEN, Oct. 1, 2015 -- Xylem Inc., a company dedicated to solving challenging water issues, recently announced that it has produced the 4 millionth Flygt wastewater pump at its state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in Sweden.
Xylem is the first international pump manufacturer to have produced this quantity of wastewater pumps at the same facility. The 4 millionth Flygt pump will support the efficient operation of the central pumping station at Azaibah, Muscat, Oman, which pumps wastewater across eight kilometres to the Al Ansab treatment plant in the Middle Eastern state.
Xylem's Flygt brand has a 100-year legacy of innovation in pumping, from developing the first submerged pumps to designing the non-clogging N-impeller, to producing wear-resistant hydraulics. The very first Flygt pump was manufactured at the company's factory in Emmaboda, Sweden.
Xylem's Flygt pumps are also produced at manufacturing sites around the world in China, India, the U.S., and Argentina. The company applies its expertise and technologies to solve complex global water challenges, including removing flood waters from New York and New Jersey following Hurricane Sandy, providing energy-efficient wastewater pumping at Heathrow airport and preventing flooding of downtown Kuala Lumpur.
The 4 millionth 500-kilowatt (kW) pump stands at 2.85 meters in height, 5,300 kilograms weight, with a pumping capacity of 500 liters per second at 66.9 meter head. It features Flygt's state-of-the-art monitoring system for operational safety and accessible data review. When the existing Flygt pumps in the central pumping station require routine maintenance, the 4 millionth pump will ensure that this critical pumping station can continue to operate efficiently.
