Atlas Copco introduces WEDA small pump range to American market with 60Hz variants
Atlas Copco’s WEDA electric submersible pumps make their debut on the American market with a new range for professional users.
The new additions to the range are 1hp and under, c-UL-us approved, 60Hz single-phase drainage, sludge and residual pumps. They come in two voltage variants, 115V and 230V, and join the 50Hz range that is already popular in Europe and in the rest of the world.
Each of the pumps is now available in a 50Hz and a 60Hz version, and the range consists of the WEDA 04 and WEDA 08 drainage pumps; the WEDA 04B residual pump and the WEDA 04S and 08S sludge/trash pumps.
The WEDA 04 and WEDA 08 are single-phase electric submersible dewatering pumps with maximum flow rate capacities of 66-86 gallons (250-325.5litres/minute) and maximum heads of 37-50feet (112.7-152m) and can be quickly put to work in a wide range of dewatering situations, while the WEDA 04B residual pump draws water down to 1mm. The WEDA 04S and WEDA 08S sludge/trash pumps are sand and mud-resistant.
“After the success of WEDA in Europe, we are looking forward to demonstrating our commitment in developing products that respond to the requirements of contractors, rental companies and pump dealers in the American market,” says Abet Cantuba, product marketing manager pumps for Atlas Copco Portable Energy.
