Specialist water, wastewater and sewage pumping system supplier, Pump Technology, has launched a new version of its DrainMinor unit.
It is a self-contained, fully automatic, wastewater pumping system, suitable for commercial and domestic installations where gravity drainage is not possible.
The improved lid seal and fasteners mean that the latest version should provide easier access to the pump and tank interior for inspection and routine cleaning.
Another new feature is the activated carbon filter, which has been incorporated into the lid, aimed at making 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 even smaller spaces.
DrainMinor is designed to be compact – 380mm L x 290mm W x 322mm H – and 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 is also said to lend itself to shrugging off any internal grease to make cleaning much easier.
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, which is 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) can be accommodated. This should make it suitable for offices, schools, homes, shops, pubs, restaurants, factories, hospitals and warehouses.
The new unit with appropriate pump options, high level alarm and FlowSafe to turn off the incoming water feed to appliances such as dish- and washing machines, is available from stock.
