Sulzer Expands XJ Dewatering Series

17 October 2019

Sulzer has announced the addition of the XJ900 to its XJ series of submersible dewatering pumps. These pumps are designed for mining, construction or tunneling.

The company labels the XJ900 pump as an economical and reliable option for dewatering applications with a lower carbon footprint.

The new pump is equipped with a high-efficiency electric motor rated 90 kW for 50 Hz markets and 108 kW (145 hp) for 60 Hz markets. The high-efficiency IE3 motor and new hydraulics combined with low-friction bearings reduce power losses. 

The hydraulic design makes for simple conversion between high-head and high-flow configurations and means that manufacturers can stock fewer pumps and still have the right hydraulic performance for the specific application.
