Tsurumi Manufacturing, has taken the challenge posed by the construction and piling industries and developed a range of submersibles that work where others fail.
Tsurumi understands that the way to eliminate product failures is what they call “Preventative Design Action”. It’s that “PDA” philosophy has allowed Tsurumi to become the world’s biggest manufacturer of electro submersible pumps.
Tsurumi recognised the need for simple, robust pumps that can take the rigours of working on construction sites. Their experience was born out of the huge reclamation works in Japan following the end of the Second World War.
It’s that experience that led to the evolution of the KTZ dewatering pumps and KRS sand pumps. They feature protective technology that enables them to handle extreme conditions.
A unique anti-wicking cable gland prevents water incursion into the motor. It stops water wicking down inside the cable if the outer sheath is damaged or if the end of the cable is accidental submerged.
The mechanical seal is designed for maximum longevity. Firstly, silicon carbide is used on all four seal faces. This material was chosen for both its abrasion and temperature resistance properties.
The dual mech seal is completely submerged in a protective oil chamber. This eliminates spring failure caused by corrosion or abrasion and keeps the seal lubricated and cool.
A unique oil lifter is fitted in the oil chamber that continues to lubricate seals even if the oil level falls. This increases the time between routine pump maintenance cutting down time and costs.
All heavy duty Tsurumi pumps use an inbuilt thermal protection for the motor against overheating.
The KTZ series is now regarded as the most reliable construction site pump on the market. The cast iron pumps feature a semi open high chrome impeller iron for wear resistance. The pumps can be submerged to depths of 50 metres based on the mechanical seal’s resistance to high pressure!
The KRS four pole, slow speed heavy duty sand pumps are also a major asset for sites involving bridgeworks, piling and dredging. These pumps have a built in agitator to mix sediment, preventing chokes when moving solids laden liquids.
Tsurumi pumps come with a unique three year warranty.
