Xylem is leading the water sector in the European Commission’s transition to Stage V diesel engines with the upcoming launch of two new innovative and sustainable Godwin Dri-Prime S Series pumps. These four-inch models, to be available in fall 2020, will add to Xylem’s comprehensive portfolio of Stage V-compliant Godwin S Series dewatering pumps. The Company has also released a ‘Stage V Diesel Engine Guide’, offering timely guidance for those making the transition.
Simon Mathias, Regional Product Manager, Xylem said, “As the deadline for Stage V implementation approaches, our new ‘Stage V Diesel Engine Guide’ and the launch of our next generation, efficient Stage V-compliant dewatering pumps later this year, reflects our commitment to support our customers in complying with EU regulations.”
The Godwin Dri-Prime S Series of smart dewatering pumps are next generation, innovative surface mounted dewatering pumps that can handle almost all solids dewatering applications. The pumps offer solids handling versatility through application-specific, interchangeable impeller options (CD or NC); improved pump hydraulic performance and efficiency expands the pumps application range; 15% improved total dynamic head (TDH) at 140 m3/hour enabling higher elevations. Streamlined serviceability means that the Godwin Dri-Prime S Series requires 40% less service time. Pumps in the series also deliver more than 90% reduction in diesel particulate emissions than engines compliant with earlier emissions regulation stages.
As well as a Stage V-compliant diesel engine, the newest generation Xylem Field Smart Technology (FST) comes standard on all S Series models, delivering smart monitoring and control. FST is a modern cloud-based SaaS platform with an intuitive multi-language interface as well as providing access to a 24/7 FST support service. When coupled with a Stage V engine, Xylem’s FST technology can help to mitigate issues such as unpredictable regeneration cycles by monitoring soot and load levels. FST also means the operator knows the location, status and condition of the pump, and if maintenance is required. This means the customer can remotely monitor and control the pump to maximize uptime and efficient operation – all without the need for staff to spend time travelling to site, particularly relevant during the Covid-19 pandemic.
