Sulzer Flow Boosters Type ABS XSB

The Flow Booster ABS XSB idea ideal for gentle circulating and mixing fluids in sewage treatment plants and industrial areas.

Features of the Sulzer Flow Booster include:

  • energy-saving premium IE3 motor
  • robust 3-stage gearbox
  • highly efficient and easy-to-mount propeller
  • enhanced mechanical seal protection



The DrainAce Compact is commonly found in restaurants, basements of high-rise buildings, boardrooms, laboratories, doctor or dental surgeries, construction sites and portable buildings. Units are also available for greasy waste discharge from grease arrestors. 


The Flow Booster ABS XSB is suitable for low-speed wastewater mixing and circulating applications, including:

  • equalization of sewage
  • biological processes (aerobic, anoxic and anaerobic)
  • selector (contact zone)




The Sulzer Flow Booster ABS XSB offers low-speed wastewater mixing and circulating for the wastewater industry. It combined the market’s best energy performance with the best lifecycle economy.  

Other features and benefits include:

Energy savings thanks to premium efficiency IE3 asynchronous motor
The motor provides the higher energy efficiency available in the market (in accordance with IEC 60034-30) by reducing energy consumption by up to 25% over alternative mixer models.

3-stage helical gearbox with strong bearing configuration
The Flow Booster’s gearbox allows numerous reduction ratios via fatigue-strength helical gears and provides high efficiency with a calculated lifetime of more than 100,000 hours.

Efficient and easy-to-mount propeller
The propellers produce high thrust and high flow capacity in an axial direction. They self-clean due to the blade profile and special curved propeller edge.

Patented concrete pedestal with heavy-duty, fully lockable coupling device
Turbulence is eliminated due to the streamlined shape, which not only suppresses all damaging vibration but improve propeller efficiency. The pedestal allows for raising and lowering of the unit for inspection, even if the tank is filled.

Solids deflection ring
This ring protects the mechanical seal from damage due to the ingress solids or fibrous matter.

Enhanced mechanical seal protection system
This protection system offers longer seal life and prevents clogging of the mechanical seal.


SA Water has flagged wet wipes as one of the biggest problems currently facing the wastewater industry. Wet wipes are notorious for clogging pipes and damaging sewer infrastructure.

The wet wipe blight

  • wipes have proven very popular with consumers
  • pump stations everywhere are clogging with wipes
  • worker safety issues
  • higher maintenance costs
  • high electrical costs due to inefficient pumps

Muffin Monster and Channel Monsters are taking up the fight by introducing 17 tooth wipes-ready cutters. These specially designed cutters feature the necessary capabilities to control both the width and length of output, preventing materials forming long strips and reweaving in the waste stream.
