Atlas Copco Completes WEDA Range Portfolio

11 February 2019

Atlas Copco Power and Flow has announced that it has completed its portfolio of WEDA electric submersible dewatering pumps. It has done so by finalising its ranges for drainage and sludge applications and adding a new range for slurry applications.

The range now comprises of three families; the expanded WEDA D for dewatering, the WEDA S for sludge, and the completely new WEDA L slurry family. WEDA D pumps are designed to handle clean or dirty water, even with small solids. The WEDA S range supports dewatering of liquid sludge containing larger solids, while the WEDA L products have the largest apertures to facilitate handling of slurry with the most difficult solids.

The WEDA D family now includes the D80, a new model for dewatering. The new models in the WEDA S sludge family, include the S30 and S60, which can handle thick, soft, wet mud or other similarly viscous mixtures of liquids and solids, especially the product of an industrial or refining process. The completely new WEDA L family handles semi-liquid slurry mixtures, typically of fine particles of manure, cement or coal and water.
