Xylem releases latest Godwin smart dewatering pump

first_imgXylem recently launched the latest in its series of smart pumps under its renowned Godwin brand as it looks to combat the toughest mining and construction applications.On show at the recent Bauma fair, in Munich, the new Godwin CD150S Dri-Prime dewatering pump, part of Godwin’s renowned S Series, will allow customers across Europe to dig deeper and build bigger, it said.The Godwin CD150S offers greater flexibility due to its interchangeable impeller – dramatically expanding the application range of the pump and providing customers with “two pumps in one”, the company said. The CD impeller can now be exchanged with a Flygt N-Technology non-clog impeller, providing customers with the flexibility to tackle “stringy, modern wastewater applications with the same pump”.Also, the pump system has been entirely redesigned with improved hydraulic efficiency, greater fuel economy, and streamlined serviceability to deliver more than 15% improved fuel economy, 40% less service time and 20% greater uptime.“The pump’s compressor belt tensioner reduces the time taken to change and adjust the belt to approximately 30 minutes, and the addition of a new sight glass allows operators to accurately monitor the level and quality of the pump’s mechanical seal oil,” Xylem said. “This new and improved design improves service efficiency and cuts overall service time by 40%.”Kevin Snow, Godwin Global Product Manager, said: “With the launch of the Godwin CD150S, we have redefined toughness for the construction and mining industries. The interchangeable impellers of the Godwin CD150S will allow customers to tackle a full range of solids handling applications, while Xylem’s new generation of Field Smart Technology (FST) gives customers total control of the pump from anywhere in the world.“The CD150S is also compliant with EU Stage 5 emissions standards, offering customers a more sustainable solution to complex water challenges. The new Godwin CD150S is also available to rent from various locations across our European rental network. With the new Godwin CD150S, tough is now smart, tough is flexible, tough is sustainable, and tough is on-demand.”The new CD150S is the latest smart pump to be unveiled under the Godwin S Series – “the smart solution for water that offers unmatched control and peace of mind anytime, anywhere”.Designed with advanced levels of monitoring and control, efficiency and reliability, the CD150S can also be equipped with a new-generation of FST, Xylem’s first-in-industry Cloud-based telematics platform that enables the Internet of Things across the entire Godwin S series, Xylem said. “Using cellular, satellite and GPS technology, customers can track, monitor and control the pump in real-time from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer, anywhere in the world.”The company said: “Xylem also offers a variety of FST subscription plans to suit customer needs, and users can contact a customer service representative at Xylem’s Network Operation Centre from anywhere in the world, at any time of the day or night. In addition, the new-generation FST system is smart enough to alert operators by phone if a problem arises – eliminating the need for an additional telephone alarm box. This new, smart technology increases pump uptime by up to 20% and ensures field equipment and labour resources are utilised efficiently.”The EU Stage 5 engines provide a 90% reduction in particulate emissions, according to Xylem.last_img read more
