New smart Godwin dewatering pump from Xylem set to tackle toughest dewatering applications

Posted: Wednesday 25th July 2018

Xylem, a leading global water technology provider, has unveiled a first-in-series smart dewatering pump - the Godwin NC150S - as part of its new Godwin S Series. Offering new levels of control, remote flexibility, efficiency, and sustainability, this innovative solution is set to revolutionise operations in even the toughest dewatering applications.

Thanks to the smart design, all diesel engines and electric motors available on Godwin S Series Dri-Prime pumps deliver more uptime, with an increase of 20 per cent in terms of reliability. The NC150S, in particular, has been designed to reduce service time, achieving a 40 per cent reduction and less frequent service intervals. The improved belt tensioning system, for example, means there is no longer any need to separate the pump from the engine for compressor belt service and the new cartridge-type mechanical seal speeds up installation. The sight glass also makes it easy to tell when seal housing oil needs replacing and a 25 per cent increase in pump shaft diameter enables longer pump life.

In addition, the NC150S has optional Godwin Field Smart Technology (FST), a first-in-industry telemetry and wireless technology that provides smart remote monitoring and control from any smartphone, tablet or desktop computer.

Reducing the number of blockages, and in turn, unexpected maintenance call outs and fees, the new Godwin series incorporates Xylem's unique Flygt N-Technology; a non-clog impeller that has proven to be unmatched for the past 20 years in more than 300,000 locations worldwide. With its self-cleaning capability and hydraulic efficiency, the patented technology ensures optimum pump performance in the most demanding environments, including those with high-rag and fibrous content. It also delivers long-term fuel and energy savings, meeting all local environmental requirements and reducing engine emissions by 90 per cent.*

Dave Boucher, Godwin International Product Manager, said, "Through thousands of hours of hands-on application experience and testing, we've learned how to simplify maintenance requirements and ensure even longer service intervals, all while building on Godwin's renowned reliability."

Mike Ramos, Director of Engineering, Xylem Dewatering said, �We listened to our customers and examined usage data from hundreds of field tests to re-imagine, re-design and re-engineer our legendary Godwin Dri-Prime pump. The result marks a new era in dewatering and we are incredibly excited to bring this smart solution to the market.�
