High-head cutter pump

Paul Boughton
Tsurumi Europe is launching a new high-head cutter pump. The CR series is designed for the smooth and efficient transport of liquids contaminated with solid matter over long distances. The pump can cut up waste material (including bottles, clothes, cans, rope, plastic bags) while still transporting liquid.

Tsurumi’s new CR series are submersible, high head cutter pumps. A unique feature of the pump is that unlike the existing C series, which uses a 4-pole motor, the CR series runs on a 2-pole motor, which increases high head performance by up to 70 per cent.

The CR series’ cutter mechanism is made of sintered tungsten carbide alloy edges integrated with an impeller and suction cover with a saw-tooth suction port. The impeller is equipped with two edges that act as a rotating cutter to provide improved cutting efficiency. The impeller and suction cover are made of high-chromium cast iron to increase durability and allow the pump to run continually for extended periods of time.

The company’s TRN series of submersible aerators offer patented oil filter technology, an extra large oil chamber and the new Air-Seal-Principle, which ensures that the double mechanical seal – unique to Tsurumi’s products to reduce wear - never comes into contact with the water during operation.

Tsurumi’s LSC series are residual dewatering pumps that have become known as ‘Puddle Suckers’ for their ability to drive large amounts of water down to a depth of just 1mm.

Tsurumi’s KRS series are general, multipurpose contractor pumps whose strength and ability are able to deal with a wide range of requirements and applications.

Tsurumi recently partnered with Primax Pumps, an Australian pump manufacturer, to sell its automatic self-priming diesel pumps to numerous markets in Europe. The Yakka series from Primax is suitable for almost all applications, particularly sewage bypassing. The Yakka series are compact, mobile pumps with high fuel efficiency and low noise levels due to a special acoustic casing.
