Xylem releases new dewatering pump to increase operational efficiency

(UI) – Global water technology company Xylem released a new dewatering pump developed to significantly increase efficiency, cut costs, and minimize downtime for construction and mining customers.

Designed to meet the unique demands of deep-mine and high-pressure water transfers, the Godwin HL270M Dri-Prime Pump can deliver cost savings of up to 10% when compared with competing solutions. With greater hydraulic efficiency and optimized head and flow, it reduces the need for multiple pumps in series, lowers energy consumption, simplifies operations and maintenance, and minimizes premature wear.

Field test participants have already used the pump to meet project goals with fewer assets, simpler operations, and reduced maintenance costs. The solution, part of the Godwin Ultrahigh-head range, also enables operators to lower their carbon emissions.

With market-leading higher head and higher-pressure capabilities, the HL270M has delivered immediate and significant benefits during customer trials. “One of our customers was facing the challenge of transferring water through an existing pipeline covering seven miles,” explained Jon Craig, application engineer. “Ordinarily, this would require using multiple pumps in series, making it an ideal fit for the HL270M. During subsequent testing, the pump has operated seamlessly for more than 1,400 hours and delivered significant operational efficiencies.”

Designed to meet the needs of mining, industrial, oil and gas, construction and emergency fire backup applications, the Godwin HL270M delivers a maximum head of 984 feet (300 meters) and flows of up to 4,400 gallons per minute. The pump delivers hydraulic efficiency of up to 70% through its enclosed impeller.

With extensive application flexibility, the product also handles a variety of fluids and liquids, including solids up to 1.2 inches in diameter. Available in both diesel and electric drive packages, it will also be offered as a retrofit package for installation on existing customer-owned pumps. All Godwin portable pumps are available with standard engines and motors compliant with regional emissions and efficiency legislation. The pump is available with two standard material options – all duplex stainless steel as the primary offering and an option for cast steel pump casing paired with a duplex stainless-steel impeller.
