Atlas Copco Adds Compact Dewatering Pumps to WEDA Lineup
Atlas Copco introduced a new lineup of WEDA pumps designed for compact, portable use.
The WEDA04 and WEDA08 offer two different sizes for drainage pumping. The WEDA04 features a 400-watt electric motor and the WEDA08 delivers 750 watts. Both models feature a specially designed impeller that cuts clogging risks, making them ideal for construction and industrial applications. Both also feature a high-torque capacitor and automatic cutoff to avoid overload and dry burning.
The WEDA04B was designed for low-suction applications, such as flood cleanup. With its 400-watt electric motor, it can pump down to 1 millimeter depth. It also features a rubberized plate on the bottom to prevent scratches.
For more difficult small-pump jobs, the company offers the WEDA08S sludge pump. It handles sandy and muddy conditions with a 750-watt electric motor and cast-iron impeller. The WEDA08S can handle particulates up to 25 millimeters and it’s designed for easy cleaning and maintenance.
The company says each of these pumps comes with both smooth and threaded discharge. They also feature outer jackets designed for cooling and thermo protection to provide safe operation under a variety of conditions. All also feature dry-running capability.
The new smaller range of WEDA pumps work in construction, mining, tunneling and a variety of other dewatering applications.
