The Sulzer ABS Piranha Grinder Pump provides a means of effective and economical wastewater transport utilizing small-diameter discharge pipes as opposed to larger diameter pipes required for gravity systems.
There are two varieties of the ABS Piranha Grinder Pumps: Piranha PE and S Series.
Piranha PE Grinder Pump
Sulzer’s premium range of submersible grinder pumps, type ABS Prianha PE, are equipped with Premium Efficiency IE3 motors in accordance to IEC 60034-20. These motors provide the perfect balance of reliability and energy consumption. The PE Grinder Pump offers operators the zero blockages and low life cycle costs, providing reliability and energy savings.
Piranha S Series Grinder Pump
The standard range of submersible grinder pumps, type ABS Piranha S, are equipped with water-tight, fully encapsulated, flood-proof motors. The pump and motor section form a compact unit, providing an economical, yet robust solution without compromising on the reliable design.
Effective cutting system
The Piranha cutting system consists of a lobed rotor cutting element attached to a centrifugal impeller working in tandem with a stationary cutting element fastened to a spiral-grooved bottom plate. The lobed rotor turns inside the stationary cutter designed with wave-shaped castellations. The number of waves is one less than the number of lobes on the rotor. The normal pumping action of the impeller causes water and solids to flow into the cutting elements and as the solids are sheared into small particles, they are pumped by the impeller into the discharge pipe.
Installation to fit any need
The Piranha grinder pumps can be installed in several configurations to fulfill virtually any customer requirements, including:
Fixed installations with pedestal (guide rail assembly)
Freestanding, transportable applications
Installation in areas where large fluctuations in terrain elevation are present.
