Atlas Copco adds Weda 04S to its line-up of small rental and construction pumps

Friday, September 13th, 2013 von admin

atlasThe Weda 04S is a 0.4 kW on-site sludge / trash pump with a maximum flow of 270 lpm and a maximum head of 10.5m. It complements the line of under 1 kW single-phase drainage, sludge and residual pumps released last year.

The Weda 04S has a cast iron vortex impeller that is able to pump dirty water and handle solids up to 25 mm in size. This makes the pump a practical choice for dewatering sewage in flooded building basements or on construction sites, removing rainwater from sandy or muddy ditches and excavation sites, or getting rid of unwanted water during maintenance of utility manholes.

The pump has a triple seal system (double mechanical shaft seals constructed from silicon carbide with an additional lip seal). Thermal protection gives the motor additional reliability and run-dry capabilities. The pump has only 10 kg.
