Flygt submersible slurry pumps offer many advantages over dry
installed pumps. Some we have already described on the facing
page. Here are a few more.
Low construction costs
Operating directly in the slurry, a submersible slurry pump requires
no support superstructure. Submersibles therefore reduce
construction costs and occupy less space.
Easy to install, easy to move
Submersible pumps are easy to install because the motor and volute
form a single integrated unit. With four different installation methods
to choose from (see page 8) you can use one Flygt slurry pump in
any number of sumps, basins and tanks.
Once installed, submersible pumps require almost no
supervision. Since there are no long or exposed mechanical
links between the motor and the volute, less maintenance is
required, and operating costs are significantly lower.
Quiet and flood-proof
With a motor that operates beneath the surface, a submersible
pump produces very little noise. And of course, a submersible
pump is, by definition, completely flood-proof.
