Varkie SVA55 5.5kw Horizontal Submersible Pump

The Varkie SVA55 was designed as a small, 3 inch (75mm), portable type horizontal submersible pump for applications where abnormal waste product needs to be removed.

This pump has a solids handling capability or up to 70mm.

The motor has a 4 pole motor giving the pump a high head low flow type curve.

  • Standard material construction is Cast Iron motor with Chrome Iron wet.
  • Stainless Steel and other materials available on special request.
  • Available only in 3 phase, with voltages of 380V, 525V and 1000V 50hz.
  • Other motor voltage and supply frequencies also available.

The SVA55 is powered by a 5.5 kw motor, has a fully recessed impeller which creates the super vortex action, allowing the flow in the volute to transfer the product without coming in to contact with the Impeller.

It is capable of solids handling up to 70mm. Within the SVA Range this pump has the highest head in comparison to flow.

The SVA55 has a weight of 170kg and has a handle mounted at the top of the unit facilitating handling.

SVA pumps have a horizontal configuration, which allows the pumps to stop pumping (by sucking air) when the water level gets below the top of the guard inlet (SH). This ensures cooling on the pumps motor by the product as the water level will not drop below two thirds of the pumps motor.

The unit snorts without overheating for extended periods, provided the pump is mounted or positioned horizontally.
