Sulzer dewatering pump case study

Neptune is a company specialized in the rental and sale of pumping equipment for clean water, wastewater and water loaded to industry, construction and communities. Its rental fleet includes 90 per cent of dewatering pumps and ten per cent of sewage pumps.

Neptune has already trusted Sulzer as a supplier for many years and has ordered several dewatering and sewage pumps. 

80 per cent of Neptune’s fleet consist of Sulzer pumps including the following models:

  • Submersible drainage pumps type ABS J
  • Submersible drainage pumps type ABS XJ
  • Submersible sludge pumps type ABS XJS
  • Submersible sewage pumps type ABS XFP

“The reliability of Sulzer’s equipment as well as the reduced need for maintenance are key factors. Since our first order and until today we have ordered only a very small number of spare parts, and this contributes to perpetuate our business relationship in the long term.”

– Mr Jérôme Vanbatten, Sales Engineer, Neptune

The challenge

Neptune requires a partner who can provide reliable technical innovations and proven solutions in wastewater and dewatering. For Sulzer as a privileged partner this collaboration is a way to develop its expertise and the proven reliability of its products in the rental market.

The solution

The submersible drainage pumps type ABS XJ – XJS provide reduced energy consumption and wear. The pump can be set to stop at dry running and start again at a specified level. 

The submersible sewage pumps type ABS XFP are suitable for various installations to fulfill virtually any customer requirements.
