Specialist water, wastewater and sewage pumping system supplier Pump Technology has released the new DrainMinor to the UK market.
It is a self-contained, fully automatic, wastewater pumping system, suitable for commercial and domestic installations where gravity drainage is not possible.
Designed to be compact – 380mm L x 290mm W x 322mm H – it will pump wastewater from locations such as sinks, wash basins, domestic dishwashers and washing machines.
The rugged tank is manufactured from recyclable polypropylene, and can be customised to suit the required installation pipe layout. The material also lends itself to shrugging off any internal grease to make cleaning easier.
The lid seal and fasteners are said to have been improved so that the latest version provides easier access to the pump and tank interior for inspection and routine cleaning.
A new feature is the activated carbon filter, which has now been incorporated into the lid, designed to make the installation of the DrainMinor fast and simple, since a separate vent pipe is no longer required. This feature also means that the new unit can be installed in smaller spaces.
A choice of submersible pumps with fixed float arm for reliable on/off operation are available. These have all been tried and tested for wastewater or light chemical applications by Pump Technology for several decades. There is also a low-level float option, designed to virtually eliminate problems with fluid stagnation.
Versions capable of pumping up to 5metres vertically or 50metres horizontally mean almost all wastewater pumping requirements (even high head) should be accommodated. This is said to make it a flexible option for homes, offices, schools, shops, pubs, restaurants, factories, hospitals and warehouses.
The new unit with appropriate pump options, High Level Alarm and FlowSafe to turn off incoming water feed to appliances such as dish and washing machines, is available from stock.
