Xylem Introduces Goulds Submersible High-temp Sump Pump
Xylem is a leading global water technology provider focused on creating innovative solutions to the world’s most challenging water issues; in 2012, Xylem was named to the Dow Jones Sustainability World Index for promoting sustainable business practices and solutions. The White Plains, NY headquartered company has a presence in over 150 countries worldwide through a variety of product brands.
Xylem recently unveiled a high temperature submersible pump from its Goulds Water Technology brand. The high temperature sump pump is designed to transfer liquids that are too hot for conventionally built submersible pumps; this includes wastewater coming from high temperature processes like boiler blow down and hot water rinses in the commercial plumbing market. The Goulds pump can handle liquids up to 200ºF while maintaining the versatility to pump corrosive, non-corrosive and clear or solids-laden liquids.
The new sump pump features the industry’s only silicon carbide mechanical seal faces and all cast-iron construction along with several other unique features. Its semi-open impeller with non-clog pump-out vanes provides mechanical seal protection while cast-iron volute casing results in maximum efficiency and 2” NPT discharge. A corrosion-resistant, stainless steel threaded shaft and locknut on all models to guard against component damage in case of accidental reverses rotation allow the pump to operate efficiently and safely.
Fully submerged in high-grade turbine oil for lubrication and efficient heat transfer, the single-phase motinsulation. The pump motor features a built-in overload with automatic reset and offers SJOOW severe duty oil and water-resistant power cords rated for high temperatures.
Additional features include:
- 300 Series stainless steel fasteners
- 200ºF Continuous duty rating
- Dry run capabilities
- Solids handling capabilities ¾” maximum
- Capacities: up to 70 GPM
- Total head: up to 27 feet TDH
- NEMA three-prong grounding plugs
