New 6-inch, 4-cylinder suction trailer

WERNER Pumps, specialists in high-pressure jetting equipment, has created a new trailer-mounted 6-inch centrifugal pump unit. MD Sebastian Werner explains that this machine can be used to pump water, as well as solids, in maintenance and troubleshooting applications, such as clearing manholes or dealing with sewage spills.

“We developed this non-clogging, self-priming sewage pump unit primarily to help meet the needs of our existing customers, many of whom require this type of equipment to complement their larger jetting trucks they have procured from us,” he explains.

Like all of the trucks and trailers in the Werner Pumps range (excluding the Rapid Response Vehicle), this unit is 100% locally manufactured at the company’s premises in Springs. It features a heavy-duty diesel tank, 4-cylinder air-cooled Kirloskar engine, SP6 self-priming sewage pump, heavy-duty strobe light and a side-mounted control panel. Designed for stable performance and reliable operation, the unit operates at 750-1 450 r/min with a flow rate of 2 084-4 167 ℓ/min, between 5 and 30 kW.

Its back-pull-out construction makes it convenient to use in a variety of applications, from pumping rainwater and common sewage to use on municipal drainage projects and construction sites. Werner says it’s also suited to use in the paper, textile, food processing, chemical, utilities, mining, tanning and water purification industries. The lead-time on one of these units is roughly three weeks from order to delivery.
