Hopper feed pump Type KL-RQ

WANGEN pumps of the type KL-RQ have a transverse feed device for integrated bridge building and a collecting vessel for continuous feeding. They were designed for conveying dewatered sludge with a high content of dry matter (TS) ranging from 15% to 45%.
Max. flow rate (gpm)
Max. differential pressure (bar)

Benefits and Characteristics

  • buffer volume up to 2.642 gal possible
  • low Life Cycle Costs
  • good pumping performance even against high pressure
  • high dosing accuracy, also at low speed
  • high pressure performance
  • optimum service life even with difficult media
  • low-pulsation, continuous conveyance independent of pressure and viscosity
  • easy to maintain thanks to large cleaning openings
  • excellent metering, important for dryer and incinerator operation
  • unattended operation possible
  • constant metering because the discontinuous input is compensated by buffer volume in the collecting container
  • little space required, with large collecting container
  • modular design for high flexibility and short downtimes for maintenance and repairs
  • low construction with large container volume
