Grundfos introduces high-efficiency mobile pumping stations
Grundfos India, has launched an ideal solution to monsoon water-logging with its intelligent Mobile Water Pumping Station. The unit comprised of two pumps, each capable of discharging 200,000 litres per hour, aims at reducing losses post disasters and can also be used for water supply in agriculture, horticulture, gardens and parks.
With its double shaft seal system, which ensures trouble-free operations, the de-watering pumps along with a 50 kVA generator, control panel and a cantilever crane in a weatherproof enclosure, are mounted on a movable trolley that can be hauled by a truck or tractor. With a portable and compact design, these mobile pumping stations are light-weight and operate on just one cable, thus saving the need for additional sensor cables.
These high-capacity pumps, suitable across harsh environments for de-watering of flooded areas and specifically designed for pumping dirty water with a high content of abrasives like sand.
Speaking about the solution, Ranganath NK, Managing Director, Grundfos India said, “A lot of damage, caused by floods and various disasters can be mitigated by removing the unwanted water efficiently using pumps. However, pumps are many a times not installed in the areas that may be effected by flooding. The mobile pumping station is an ideal solution for addressing this issue.”
