Varkie S370 Horizontal Submersible Pump - 37kW - 49.6Hp - 3~
The Varkie S370 Solids Pump is a New Model in the Varkie S Series, it is a horizontal submersible pump for applications where abnormal waste product needs moving.
Varkie S370 – Standard construction
Varkie S370X – Flameproof construction
Note:-The Varkie S370 supersedes the Varkie SVA370.
This pump has a design for transporting light slurries (up to an SG of 1.3) for applications where abnormal waste product needs to be removed.
Applications where these pumps are proving to be very successful are:
- Mining applications (including fiery mines),
- Industrial waste water,
- Agriculture irrigation,
- Construction site drainage,
- Large commercial and domestic water features.
Due to the vortex action this pump has very good solids handling capabilities (up to 95 mm).
These units are to run horizontal. This allows the unit’s motor to stay partially submerged, when the pump loses prime and stops pumping, allowing the product to still cool the motor.
This model has a four pole motor, reducing the speed and extending the wear life of the pump components.
The wet end consists of a single full vortex impeller with a volute casing and requires no adjustment.
Working Life Enhancements
Careful consideration has been taken when designing this unit to minimise on site maintenance by utilising sealed for life bearings and double sided mechanical seal with a protector seal, protecting the mechanical seal from the product, which run in an oil bath. On site maintenance is not recommended but rather a standby unit as a backup.
Life of the mechanical seal has been extended by utilising a pressure relief box to reduce the pressure on the seal.
Behind the impeller the face is lined with polyurethane to improve the wear life.
This unit comes standard on a skid base for easy transportation in mines.
Our unit can be mounted on an Amandla Float when required.
The Varkie S370X is Ex d I approved, according to SANS 60079-1 for underground use in fiery mines. All international 3-phase standard voltage ratings are available from 380 to 1000V.
Material construction ranges from standard cast iron / chrome iron and stainless steel constructions or a combination thereof. Other special materials of construction are available on request.
