Atlas Copco expands dewatering solutions with diesel-driven pumps
June 23, 2014 – Antwerp, Belgium – Atlas Copco Portable Energy announced a significant expansion of its dewatering pump solutions with the introduction of a new range of diesel-driven portable pumps. The 4, 6 and 8 inch dry-prime units – PAS 4, PAS 6 and PAS 8 – deliver high performance and operating efficiency for the rental and dewatering markets.
“We understand our customers operate in critical situations. In order to get their job done, they need fast and reliable dewatering first and foremost,” says Abet Cantuba, Product Marketing Manager Pumps of Atlas Copco Portable Energy. “The PAS combines high performance with minimum operating expense. For rental companies and dewatering contractors, this is extremely important as it enables them to get a faster return on equipment acquisition costs, which is exactly what they require to stay competitive.”
The PAS 4, PAS 6 and PAS 8 have an operating flow range of 50 to 600 cubic meters per hour with a maximum head of up to 37 meters. Their solids handling capacity reaches up to 76mm. An environmentally friendly, oil-free vacuum pump priming system, which automatically removes air from the water, ensures uninterrupted, unsupervised operation.
The Atlas Copco PAS come with a skid fuel tank that allows the pumps to run for days without refueling. In addition, the units’ fuel-efficient performance lowers running costs.
The PAS’ straightforward design and basic controller module ensure easy operation. Large panels give easy access to the engine and pump for faster servicing.
Transportation and storage handling are simplified by the compact and robust canopy, forklift slots and lifting eye.
The PAS pump range will be manufactured at Atlas Copco’s Zaragoza factory in Spain starting from August 2014.
