Australian Pump Industries has unveiled the latest series of super heavy duty submersible dewatering pumps manufactured by Tsurumi Pump.

These pumps are produced at an ultra modern roboticised plant in Kyoto where they have the capacity to build up to one million pumps per year.

Tsurumi dewatering pumps are designed to provide the construction and mining markets with unparalleled reliability.

The KTV series pumps offer capacities of up to 2,300L per minute flow, and heads as high as 50m. 

The complete series of pumps with bores from 50mm (2”), all the way through to 150mm (6”) are available in 3 phase, 2 pole configuration, and standard cast iron body construction.

“Tsurumi chose cast iron for this series because of its high durability compared to lighter weight aluminium pumps with similar performance,” said Aussie Pumps’ Craig Bridgement.

Tsurumi Pump developed the product range in response to requirements in US and Japanese markets for super tough pumps for the mining and constructions markets.  Features include a newly developed mechanical seal that allows water pressures of up to 142 psi. This makes the pump suitable for use in deep well applications.

The mechanical seal also features a unique “Oil Lifter” developed to enhance sealing performance. 

The Oil Lifter enhances the operation of Tsurumi’s unique double faced mechanical seal extending seal life. 

The unique design enables the “Lifter” to oil the top seal faces, even if the lubricant level drops below manufacturer’s recommendations. The lubrication cools the seal faces, providing longer life, and reducing wear.
