Varkie S40 - 4kW - 5.4Hp Horizontal Submersible Pump
The Varkie S40 was designed to supersede the Varkie SVA40 designed as a portable type horizontal submersible pump for applications where abnormal waste product needs to be removed.
Although this pump as the same pumping qualities of its predecessor, it has various technological design improvements making it superior in working life expectancy.
This pump has a solids handling capability or up to 45mm.
The motor has a 4 pole motor giving the pump a high head low flow type curve.
- Standard material construction in Cast Iron motor with a Chrome Iron wet end.
- Stainless steel 316 and other materials available on special request.
- Available only in 3 phase, and standard voltages of 380V, 525V and 1000V.
- Available in other voltages and frequencies for international markets.
The Varkie S40 is powered by a 4kw 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.
This pump is capable of solids handling up to 45mm. Within the Varkie S Range this pump has the second highest head in comparison to flow.
The S40 has a weight of 66kg.
The S Series 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.
The pump is designed to work in harsh environments where large flows are not a criteria and suit municipal, mining and industrial applications and are ideal where solids in the form of sludge, slurries, suspended solids or sediment.
The Varkie S40 is available in standard and flameproof construction according to SANS 60079-1
