Aussie Pumps new solutions for sewage bypass

A new eight-inch submersible pump has been released by Tsurumi that is ideal for temporary bypass of sewage during sewer reconstruction work. The pump o ers a maximum head of 26.5m, coupled with a maximum flow of 5,700 lpm. What’s more, its slim design enables it to fit into a standard manhole.

Called the KRSU series, the new pump will be introduced to the Australian market by exclusive Tsurumi distributors, Aussie Pumps.

Sewer pipes deteriorate with age and can be damaged by construction or earthworks. During repairs and replacement of these pipes the sewage must be safely diverted to prevent the health issues for workers and the neighbouring community.

Conventional sewage bypass pumps are engine drive and struggle to lift fluids beyond depths of 7m. Tsurumi’s KRSU submersible pump not only ts in the deep, limited confines of a manhole but provides a maximum head in excess of 25m.

The new KRSU pump features Tsurumi’s unique anti-wicking block for the cable entry. This watertight cable entry, with strain-relief device, prevents water incursion due to capillary action, in the event of the power cable being damaged or the end submerged.

Aussie Pumps expect that the submersible will replace engine driven sewer bypass pumps, because it has a remarkable ability to lift sewage from a depth of 25m!
