New, higher-capacity pump for sand and slurry dewatering

The new KB220 pump (photo) operates at flowrates up to 810 gal/min in sand and slurry dewatering applications. The 30-h.p. addition to the KB Series is available in 460- or 575-V versions and offers a maximum head of up to 186 ft. KB Series pumps are specifically designed and constructed to reliably handle the issues associated with sand and small abrasives encountered in the construction and mining sectors, as well as other applications. The KB220 uses a chrome iron agitator to move settled solids. The pump motor is protected with a double-mechanical seal, which features a separate lip seal, to prevent all leaks. Embedded thermal sensors in the motor windings help to protect the motor from overheating and premature failure. The volute casing is constructed from hardened ductile iron, and durable cables are available for operating in aggressive environments. — BJM Pumps, LLC, Old Saybrook, Conn.
