Company to celebrate at Bauma with launch of new engine-driven pump and life-extending kit
TSURUMI, a global leader in the manufacture of submersible pumps, will mark their 30th anniversary in Europe at Bauma 2013 with the launch one of their largest engine-driven pumps and a life-extending kit for their KTV range of pump products.
The new, automatic, self-priming, diesel driven pump (4TBA82D135) is one of Tsurumi’s biggest. Designed to work in the most demanding dewatering and sewage applications, it offers a maximum flow of 2,250 litres/min and a maximum head of 18m. The rugged and fuel-efficient pump is suitable for almost any application, and will be sold in Tsurumi’s direct sales network in Germany, France, Spain and Sweden.
Tsurumi will also introduce a set of life-extending parts for its KTV and KTVE range of light-weight aluminium pumps at Bauma 2013. After rigorous testing, the new pump casing, wear ring and protection plate can give a pump three times longer life.
Since establishing its operations in Europe, Tsurumi has built a comprehensive network of 35 dealers that provide innovative pumping solutions to the entire continent. This pan-European network works in conjunction with Tsurumi’s direct sales teams, which operate in Germany, Spain, Portugal, Sweden and France.
Daniel Weippert, managing director of Tsurumi Europe, attributes the company’s European success to its dealers and the knowledge and expertise they provide to customers. ‘We are celebrating this anniversary with our dealer network and we want to highlight the advantages they bring to our customers throughout Europe,’ he said. ‘They know our products and the best way to get the most out of them. Our pumps are used in a huge array of projects and have built a reputation for strength and reliability. This is Bauma’s 30th birthday as well, and I am proud to be able to celebrate both events with our dealers and customers at the show.’
Alongside the new diesel pump at Bauma will be a wide variety of pumping solutions from Tsurumi’s 250 strong product portfolio. Taking centre stage at Tsurumi’s booth will be three demonstration basins, which will showcase: the LSC ‘puddle sucker’ – a residual water pump capable of reducing puddles covering the equivalent area of a football pitch down to just 1 mm water depth; the KRS range – a heavy-duty pump suitable for sludge, slurry or contaminated liquids; and Tsurumi’s patented Oil Lifter – a lubricating device contained within Tsurumi pumps that improves the performance of the mechanical seal (shaft seal), which sits at the heart of all submersible pumps.
