Is it possible to use a heating pump in drinking water systems?
No, this is not permitted, as pump components that have come into contact with pumped media are not suitable for use in drinking water systems.
What is a cooling jacket and when should it be used for submersibles?
A cooling jacket, also referred to as a flow generator, ensures that there is always sufficient water flow across the motor surface in order to cool the motor.
In a typical well installation, the pump is surrounded by the walls of the well. The motor is installed below the pump. Because the pump draws in water from below, the water flows along the well walls and over the surface of the motor, cooling the motor in so doing.
If the pump is installed in open water, there will ...
What is the maximum sand content of pumped water for submersibles?
The maximum sand content of the water may not exceed 50 g/m³. A greater sand content reduces the service life of the pump and increases the risk of pump blockages.
