Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), the global water technology company which yesterday spun off from ITT Corporation, has unveiled a revolutionary new wastewater pumping system, called Flygt Experior. By combining advances to its state-of-the-art hydraulics, premium efficiency motors and intelligent controls in a unique concept, the new Flygt Experior offers up to 50 percent energy savings compared to conventional wastewater pumps in a package that is simple to install and easy to operate.
“Flygt Experior builds on the premise that to achieve the highest possible reliability, efficiency and simplicity, three fundamental functions— hydraulics, motors and controls— all have to be superior in performance and work seamlessly together,” said Anders Fredriksen, head of Xylem’s wastewater transport business area. “With the Flygt Experior, each critical function has been advanced by our team of world-class engineers and is optimized to work perfectly together. The result, we believe, is that Flygt is once again setting a new standard for premium wastewater pumping.”
With the launch of Flygt Experior, the company will introduce an extended range of Adaptive N pumps, available on all N pumps between 1.3 and 7.4 kilowatts (kw), or 2.2 and 11 horsepower (hp).
Leveraging Flygt’s 50 years experience as the world’s leading designer and manufacturer of wastewater pump motors, Flygt Experior will be available with Premium Efficiency Motors up to 70 kw, or 105 hp. The motors have been optimized for wastewater pumping applications, including some models featuring a Line Started Permanent Magnet, or LSPM design.
Flygt Experior’s SmartRun intelligent controls enable the pumping system to be pre-programmed and pre-set to handle any wastewater handling situation, making it very easy to install and operate. The SmartRun controls optimize energy use and can reduce energy consumption by 30 percent compared to conventional on/off systems.
