Getting More Out of Dewatering Pumps – Small Conversion Does the Trick

Anyone who operates a dewatering pump from the market leader Tsurumi can, in many cases, upgrade it to a higher performance level – by simply exchanging some parts.

New projects are coming in and the performance of the existing pump is too low. No big deal for operators of Tsurumi KTZ dewatering pumps. These can reach higher outputs quite easily – at least to the next larger model, often even further. Tsurumi itself has created the preconditions for this because the pumps are modular in design and use common parts across the series.

A KTZ33.7, for example, turns into a KTZ43.7 just with the help of a wrench. And that’s quite something because the maximum flow rate of the pump increases by a whopping 60 percent.

Tsurumi shows how this works in an explanatory video on YouTube. Basically, it involves replacing the impeller and suction plate on the underside of the pump. For this purpose, a larger discharge nozzle is also mounted. The work should not be a challenge for the technically experienced, as only a few screws need to be loosened with standard tools. The exact steps are well explained in the video instructions. By the way, the films are also a valuable aid when it comes to maintenance work or the replacement of spare parts. This is an exemplary service offered by the manufacturer.
