Being an independent hire company, Exsel Pumps can offer effective diesel and electric options providing genuine and unrivalled rag-handing capability and significantly low fuel consumption. Further solutions can be offered with vacuum assisted priming for electric sets up to 32” (800mm) discharge.
For both diesel and electric sewage pump offerings, exsel utilise pumps from reputable manufacturers that offer genuine rag handling capabilities without loss of performance. Consider the implications of pump blockages due to rag with the cost of downtime for the process, not to mention the risk of sewage spill and the associated and escalating costs of fines now being imposed.
exsel utilises Hidrostal and SPP pumps utilising the unique single screw impeller design. This type of impeller from both these reputable manufacturers has been chosen by exsel due to its unrivalled rag-handling capability and significantly low fuel and energy consumption. When looking at the whole life cost of hire, fuel is over 80% of the cost of a typical diesel pump hire.
Just imagine the savings if a typical single 6” diesel sewage pump can reduce fuel running costs by over £600 per week compared to our nearest competitor, with no loss of performance and with genuine rag handling capability. Also consider two pumps running on a temporary project for one month. The potential fuel savings could be around £4,800 for a standard application and the savings grow further dependent on the duration and number of pumps used. These significant savings truly make the weekly hire rate seem insignificant.
The diesel range includes core pumps from 4” (100mm) discharge to 12” (300mm) discharge. Larger sizes up to 32” (800mm) are available under the Major Projects capability. As standard, the core diesel versions of these pumps are enclosed in super silenced canopies, automatic vacuum assisted self-priming, latest emission compliant diesel engines and offer genuine rag handling with no loss of performance. All pumps also are fully bunded negating the need for old fashioned drip trays.
Utilising primarily the Hidrostal range of immersible pumps with over-specified configuration to provide maximum utilisation potential, these pumps can be run vertically, horizontally, immersed, submerged and dry. When used in dry well or surface mounted configuration they can also be utilised with exsel’s proven automatic vacuum assisted stand-alone priming systems. The capabilities are further enhanced with unique PLC control capabilities developed by exsel over a number of years. Variable speed control, level control with mm accuracy, generator control to further reduce fuel costs and vacuum priming control to provide the most effective pumping solution.
The electric range includes a wide range of pump models from 3” (75mm) to 32” (800mm). All pumps providing the various dry running and submerged capabilities with unrivalled rag handling and enhanced performance.
