Xylem Launches New Flygt and Godwin Dewatering Pumps
Xylem Inc. is focused on addressing challenging water issues around the world and is currently expanding its dewatering pump rental presence in Europe in response to growing construction, municipal, mining, and industrial sectors. Last week, the global water technology company unveiled new dewatering pumps for its Flygt and Godwin brands at the Bauma trade show in Munich, Germany. Additions include a new series of submersible pumps modeled on Xylem’s popular Flygt BIBO pump and a compact but powerful Godwin pump designed for lower head dewatering applications.
“Demanding conditions on a worksite and a changed business environment where resources are limited mean that customers need ever more reliable and durable technologies, and we are responding to that need with some smart new dewatering solutions,” says Andrew Jones, head of Xylem’s dewatering business. “We believe the new Flygt BIBO will make a big impression at the show, as well as within the construction and mining sectors when launched globally later this year. We will also launch our new Godwin Vac-Prime, a highly efficient, automatic self-priming dewatering solution ideally suited to well-pointing. It features Godwin’s trademark reliability and high performance in a compact, lightweight model.”
Xylem’s Flygt BIBO
The new Flygt BIBO series draws on several successful features from the original pump design while using innovative technology to provide unmatched wear resistance and uptime capability. Created by the designers of the world’s most successful submersible drainage pump, Xylem’s new, durable pump series is ideal for challenging dewatering environments such as mining, quarrying, construction, and tunneling. Since their 1960s debut, the company has sold over one million original Flygt BIBO pumps.
Xylem’s Godwin Vac-Prime range
Godwin’s new Vac-Prime pump series joins the existing Dri-Prime pump range to offer full coverage of low, medium, and high-head dewatering pump applications. The new Vac-Prime pump features a compact design with lifting frame, fork pockets, and optional wheels that makes it easy to move without specialist transport and requires minimal onsite equipment. Additionally, the pump’s highly efficient vacuum pump and fast-priming system allows it to offer expedited air evacuation. Despite its small size and weight, Vac-Prime pumps are robust and reliable in true Godwin fashion.
Xylem also featured its enhanced Flygt 2600 Series and Godwin NC Series at the Bauma trade show. The Flygt 2600 drainage pumps are ideal for challenging dewatering conditions and applications. New features include enhanced seal durability, greater protection against corrosion, improved dry-run capabilities, and a simplified design. The Flygt 2600 Series pump is at least three times more wear-resistant than conventional drainage pumps, according to Xylem’s Flygt 100-hour wear test. The Godwin NC Series features non-clog Flygt N-technology, ensuring maximum uptime and efficiency with clog-free pumping. The pump is ideal for applications within the construction and mining industries.
