Xylem Inc. launched new Godwin NC100S and CD100S Dri-Prime dewatering pumps, the third and fourth pumps in the Godwin S Series of smart pumps, at WEFTEC 2019. Equipped with interchangeable, application-specific impellers and a new generation of cloud-based Field Smart Technology, the company says these new 4-inch surface-mounted centrifugal pumps deliver enhanced levels of control and flexibility for tough dewatering applications.
“The Godwin NC100S and CD100S Dri-Prime pumps are designed to be versatile, multi-purpose dewatering pumps, for use in the industry’s most challenging construction, municipal, industrial, and emergency response applications,” says Hunter Powell, Xylem Americas Godwin product manager. “Due to these pumps’ unique design and interchangeable impellers, the customer can now select a single versatile pump which can handle complex solids — from 1⅞-inch solids to modern stringy waste — across a variety of applications.”
While each is ideal for the application described below, the pumps enable the operator to switch from a NC100S to a CD100S, and vice versa, due to the interchangeable impellers on both models, thereby providing a “two in one” solution for each pump to increase the application range and removing the need to invest in multiple fleet models.
The company says the Godwin CD100S is ideal for utility and construction applications, as well as emergency response dewatering. The CD impeller, generally used in construction dewatering applications, can be exchanged with a Flygt N-Technology self-cleaning, non-clog impeller, which delivers sustained hydraulic efficiency. Xylem says this provides customers with the flexibility to tackle stringy, fibrous materials most commonly associated with modern wastewater applications, all with the same pump. The NC100S and CD100S models feature a redesigned pump-end, resulting in 20 percent greater pump uptime and 40 percent reduced service time, the company said in a release. Both models also come equipped with a Tier-4 Final engine that cuts diesel particulate emissions by 90 percent. Electric motors are also available upon request.
“Digital technology is creating bold new possibilities to address the challenges of water affordability, scarcity and resilience and Xylem is committed to driving this digital transformation,” Powell adds. “The 4-inch surface-mounted dewatering pumps come equipped with our newest generation of Field Smart Technology (FST) which allows customers to monitor and control the pump remotely, at any time and from anywhere in the world. Field Smart Technology increases peace of mind, as the customer knows the exact location, status and condition of the pump, enabling proactive maintenance for increased uptime and reduced service time, and mitigating costly pump failures. Remote monitoring and control also supports more effective deployment of labor as it removes the need for on-site pump watch.”
The new Godwin NC100S and CD100S are now available to purchase or rent in the Americas.
