VORTEX 150-200

Submersible pumps in cast-iron for sewage water, 2 poles, from 1.1kW to 1.5kW,
Max head: 11 m,
Max capacity: 550 L/min

Description

Pump in cast-iron with "vortex" impeller. When the impeller turns, it creates a vortex pushing the water through the pump body. As the impeller is positioned in the upper part of the pump body it permits a wide free passage for the solid parts contained into the water. Thanks to its heavy duty construction, the double indipendent mechanical seals and the top quality oil bathed motor the VORTEX 150 and VORTEX 200 can be used to pump sewage water and manure.

In case an electrical problem occurs, the reparation of the pump is extremely easy because the electric connections and the capacitor are positioned under the cover and completely isolated from the motor; so if some water enters into the pump from a cut in the cable the motor will be safe.

Use

The VORTEX 150 and VORTEX 200 are usually installed into block of flats' cellars to drain the rain water or the domestic sewage water but these models are also often used in farms to pump out the manure of the stables, in industrial plants, in sewage water treatment plants, etc. These models cannot be used to pump water containing stones.

 Optionals:

Connections Professional 90° brass connection 2" in three pieces
Standard 90° plastic connection 2" in one piece 
Coupling foot MODEL 1-2": automatic coupling foot with 2" connection 
No-return valve Professional ball check valve threaded 2" in cast-iron
Float-switch 10 or 20 metres cable float-switch to be connected to an electric board in case it is not possible to use the standard float-switch connected to the pump
Electric board Model F5-0.5/3-1 for single-phase pumps or model F6-0.5/10-3 for three-phase pumps. The electric board provides a manual reset thermal protection to protect the motor of the pump and it permits the connection of a float-switch. In the three-phase pumps (that have no protection built-in into the motor and without the possibility to connect a float-switch directly on the pump) the electric board is mandatory.
