If 'forwarned is forearmed', now might be a good time to start thinking about a decent pump to drain sodden job sites and tackle the worst of the British weather when it duly returns - and it surely will. Fortunately, Atlas Copco has just the thing, and now it's even better...

That's because the company has just introduced a new technology in its WEDA D70 dewatering pumps. Dubbed the 'Wear Deflector', the new system delivers exceptional performance, enabling construction and industrial sites to remove water more reliably and thus improve productivity.

At the heart of Wear Deflector is a hydraulic design providing a high level of pump efficacy. The innovative tech results in an extremely durable pump that offers long life under tough operating conditions.P oduct Marketing Manager Bart Duijvelaar explains the benefits:

“With our new platform we are setting a new high standard for pump performance and customers can be sure of a robust and reliable pump that delivers time and time again," he says. "Solids suspended in water can cause an impeller to wear and prematurely fail, however, this innovative design means the pumps are exceptionally long-lasting. The impellers are also manufactured from high-chrome stainless steel (55 HRC) and as such, have high hardness and exceptional wear resistance."

Other highlights include a lightweight construction, built-in shock absorbers to withstand rough-handling, easy servicing and inspections and a motor that can run dry for reliable and robust operation.

The Wear Deflector technology platform is only installed in the WEDA D70 pump initially, but Atlas Copco plans to extend it to the rest of the WEDA D draininge range in the near future.
