Sludge - Slurry - Solids Handling Pumps
About the Varkie 'S' Series
Varkie™ is an Amandla Pumps trade name and trade mark for the SVA and S series of pumps.
These versatile sludge/slurry pumps have proved to be very effective with solids handling.
The Varkie S-Series is the range that supersedes the SVA series. Nothing much changes in the basic performance of the pump (duty and solids handling).
The redesigning of the range was in line with the Amandla Pumps policy of continual improvement through research and development, resulting in a more aesthetically pleasing product, added cooling, reduced weight and increased longevity of the units.
The “Varkie” has solids handling capability from 45mm with the Varkie S40 to 95mm with the S370. These units are of horizontal configuration, allowing the unit’s motor to stay partially underwater when the pump loses prime and stops pumping, thus the product still cools the motor.
Jenny 'J' Series - Dewatering Submersible Pump
The Jenny J series has a design for typical drainage applications where small particles may be present. These applications would typically be:
- Mining applications (including fiery mines),
- Industrial wastewater,
- Agriculture irrigation,
- Construction site drainage or even water features.
The pump range has two types per motor size (excluding the 4kw):
- A high head, low flow range with a suffix H
- A medium head with a high flow range with a suffix M
The Jenny J series range from a 4kw to a 90kw. All units are available in flameproof construction for underground use in fiery mines where methane gas may be present.
Flameproof units are identified by a suffix X after the pump model.
