Hopper feed pump Type KL-RS

Pumps of the KL-RS series are hopper silo pumps for conveying and dosing dewatered sewage sludge with a high-solids content (DS) of 15% to 45%. These features make silo discharge pumps of the type KL-RS an indispensable core aggregate in modern sewage treatment plants.

  • robust bearing pedestal with close-coupled drive and self-centering of the drive shaft (optionally with bare shaft)
  • insensitive to foreign matter
  • maintenance-friendly
  • modular design for short downtimes
  • direct flange-fitting of the pump to the bottom of the silo
  • double, maintenance-free shaft seal
  • rotor/stator quick-change facility
  • slide valves at the end of the hopper tunnel enable inspection and monitoring work to be carried out without having to dismantle the pump
  • split frame design for installation in confined conditions
  • shut-off slide valves enable changes of rotor/stator when the silo is full

Fields of Application

The KL-RS hopper silo pump series processes media with a wide range of viscosities and delivers a good flow rate, even with media containing abrasive and fibrous additives. The slide valve design at the end of the hopper tunnel allows inspection and monitoring work of the hopper - without the need to disassemble the pump. Also, gate valves allow the rotors / stators to be exchanged, even if the silo is full.
