Atlas Copco Power and Flow has launched a next-generation electric submersible dewatering pump, the WEDA D95, incorporating state-of-the-art Wear Deflector Technology. The robust and reliable pump delivers best-in-class performance over a longer lifetime than comparable pumps in heavily abrasive environments such as mining, tunnelling and construction, and enables operators to improve their sustainability and productivity.
WEDA D95 has a power rating of 37 – 43kW and is the latest pump in the WEDA D drainage range to feature the innovativeWear Deflector Technology designed to minimise wear and provide consistent performance over a long operating life. Features such as a high chrome wear-resistant impeller combined with solid-redirecting auxiliary vanes contribute towards its exceptional performance. The pump also features re-adjustable hydraulics which allow the pump to be simply realigned to compensate for any wear, thus prolonging its life. All these elements have a significant positive impact on the overall operational productivity, meaning users can achieve a lower total cost of ownership.
“There are often many suspended solids in harsh applications which can cause excessive abrasion and wear to the internal workings of the pump. At Atlas Copco, we are driven by innovation, and so we have taken the fundamental design of the drainage pump back to the drawing board. We have optimized the hydraulic design using Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) and applied 21st-century manufacturing techniques combined with decades of experience to produce this new long-lasting and reliable pump.”
