Clog-free pumping

When solid objects such as stringy fibrous material and modern waste enter the inlet of a conventional pump, they tend to get caught on the leading edges of the impeller vanes, reducing the impeller's efficiency and resulting in more unplanned callouts and increased energy consumption.

When solid objects such as stringy fibrous material and modern waste enter the inlet of a conventional pump, they tend to get caught on the leading edges of the impeller vanes, reducing the impeller’s efficiency and resulting in more unplanned callouts and increased energy consumption. Adaptive N technology, available now in Xylem pumps, overcomes this in two stages. The new Flygt 3069, equipped with this technology, is available with vortex and grinder hydraulic options, is flexible, and can be configured to be installed in four different ways to suit the application needs, including stormwater applications. This modular, adaptable design also reduces warehouse costs.
