Tsurumi Bar Screens: Essential for the Wastewater Treatment Industry

Tsurumi Bar Screens: Essential for the Wastewater Treatment Industry

Tsurumi has made a name for themselves since 1924 with their submersible pumps. They are widely recognised as one of the best pump manufacturers in the world. Their commitment to high quality is well-known over a wide range of business sectors.

Tsurumi also makes various other environmental materials for applications such as mining, construction and wastewater. One of their more popular products is their series of bar screens. These are the KE/KS & KW Series.

Tsurumi KE/KS/KW Series bar screens are front-screen, automatic type bar screens that are used in the screening process for wastewater. They are made out of 304 stainless steel, which makes them very corrosion resistant and able to handle media such as wastewater without degrading.

They are constructed with screen bars in the front and two or more rakes behind them. The rakes move behind the screen bars in a full range, meaning that every tooth of every rake moves between the screen bars. Even if solids are stuck between the screen bars, the rake teeth get them out.

The KE/KS/KW Series uses a smaller output motor so electrical costs are kept down. The bar screen can be used in applications such as waterways with variable levels of water.

The KS Series screens have all of those features, but include a mechanism that ensures eccentric roll. Residue can cause clogging or retraction of the screen’s front edge. The KS mechanism prevents the clogging and retraction.

The KW Series adds a safety device that detects any abnormalities in the operation of the gear motor and stops the motor immediately.

Tsurumi Debuts KTZ-Series 15 kW Submersible Pumps

Tsurumi has been an international mainstay in the pump business, manufacturing submersible pumps, environmental devices and other related equipment since 1924. Through a lot of hard work and a commitment to constant improvement on a daily basis, Tsurumi have become the preeminent manufacturer of submersible pumps in the world.

Recently, they announced the addition of two 15 kW submersible pumps in their Flagship KTZ series. Before the introduction of these pumps, the most powerful pumps available in the series were was 11 kW. With the addition of these two pumps, the KTZ Series now offers pumps ranging in power from 1.5 kW to 15 kW.

They are available in two varieties: the 4-inch pump is the KTZ415 and the 6-inch pump is the KTZ615. Both pumps provide a maximum capacity of 2.8 m3/min and a maximum head of 55 m. Both models are built with a high chromium cast iron impeller and a cast iron body. This configuration helps them rate highly for durability and for wear resistance.

Tsurumi KTZ series

The discharge design is top discharge, side flow. This enables Tsurumi to keep the pumps slim enough to be installed in small spaces and also allows them to continue operating at low water levels.

When you put it all together, Tsurumi KTZ Series 15 kW Submersible Pumps, like all of the KTZ Series, qualify as continuous duty, highly reliable heavy duty pumps that are appropriate for the harshest of work environments, including mining, construction, quarrying and other industrial work sites.

Due to a Tsurumi original, design-registered feature, a multi-directional structure for hose coupling, the KTZ Series pumps can be toggled between inclined or vertical discharge with just a wrench.

Tsurumi Pumps all provide a set of useful features for all of their general submersible pumps as standard equipment, including a motor protector, an anti-wicking cable, an oil lifter and mechanical seals which have silicon carbide faces. The 15 kW pumps, like all KTZ Series models 7.5 kW and stronger, offer seal pressure relief ports that are built into the pump unit. This alleviates the tendency toward pressure on the mechanical seals.

The 15 kW pumps are also designed with double bearings on the bottom. They are used as a countermeasure against excessive thrust load, which can be a major cause of pump failure. To increase the hardness of the shaft and to provide durability, the shaft receives a quenching treatment.

Tsurumi have worked very hard at ensuring that their submersible pumps can be used in all construction, mining and Industrial situations. Their pumps are built to withstand the harshest conditions. Their reputation for reliability and durability is at the top of the business.

Tsurumi KTZ Series 15 kW Submersible Pumps: More Specs

Tsurumi KTZ Series submersible pumps are classified as high head, cast iron, heavy duty three phase drainage pumps. The cast iron, high chromium impeller combines with the cast iron body to ensure durability and consistency. This helps them withstand conditions in the aggregate, mining and construction industries.

The flow design is side flow, top discharge. This ensures that the motor is efficiently cooled, even when there is air mixed with the water flowing through the pump. Because of its slim dimensions, it can be used for smaller spaces without sacrificing power. You can choose between inclined discharge and vertical discharge. This not only provides flexibility, but keeps the discharge hose from being bent or folded.

Pumps from 7.5 kW to 15 kW are built with seal pressure relief ports, which keep any of the pressure produced by pumping from being directed toward the shaft seal.

Tsurumi TRN Pumps for Submersible Self-Aspiration Aeration

We have done business with Tsurumi Pumps for a long time. They are a manufacturer that has been in business close to a hundred years and have proven themselves to be among the most reliable, high-quality manufacturers in the industry. Their submersible pumps have become industry standards in many industry segments.

One such pump which has become the standard in the wastewater industry is their TRN series. Tsurumi TRN pumps are submersible self-aspiration aerators. They are used to aerate and mix wastewater.

Their design features a special, semi-open impeller. This design causes negative pressure to be generated around the impeller. This draws air into the water from above the water surface. The air that has been drawn mixes with the water in a process called aeration. Then, the pump discharges the mixture of air and water.

This process is ultra-efficient at dissolving oxygen because it aerates the water under a high-pressure condition.

There is a limit to how deep each pump can effectively aerate water, but Tsurumi has solved that problem. They offer a stand that is either a standalone product or is used with a draft tube.

The air inlet bores start at 32mm and go all the way up to 150mm. Motor output ranges from 0.75 kW to 40 kW. All TRN pumps are three-phase pumps. The smallest pump allows for the passage of solids measuring 10 mm. The largest pump allows solids passage of 25 mm.

For the smaller pumps, the maximum water depth is 3.5 m. Larger pumps can operate down to 6 m below the surface.

Tsurumi Submersible Seawater Pumps

Tsurumi Pumps have been making high quality pumps since they were established in 1924, in Japan. Their submersible pumps have a reputation as being among the best in the industry. But there is one niche in which they have everyone beaten hands down: submersible seawater pumps.

Tsurumi designs their submersible pumps in a manner that helps them handle virtually any liquid. This includes corrosive liquids, hot water, wastewater and seawater. The durability of Tsurumi pumps and their ability to handle so many different media is just one reason why they hold such a high stature in the industry.

The Tsurumi solution to the problem of corrosive liquids is to build their pumps out of titanium. Any part that comes into contact with liquids on any Tsurumi submersible pump is made out of titanium to keep them from corroding and to give them a longer life.

Tsurumi Submersible Seawater Pumps

Tsurumi TM-Series Submersible Seawater Pumps

The Tsurumi Seawater Pump series combines titanium with specially formulated resins that are also resistant to seawater. Since titanium is so expensive, Tsurumi uses the resins as a way to lower the cost of their seawater pumps while still providing the highest quality in the business. The end result is a pump that is reliable, efficient and cost-effective.

Seawater is Difficult to Handle

Because seawater is so corrosive, it is necessary to take countermeasures when building submersible pumps to transport it. If precautions are not taken, the seawater can cause corrosion, pump damage and even pump failure.

Other pump manufacturers tend to use stainless steel as a material and coated castings. However, stainless steel pumps suffer from localised corrosion, while the coating tends to peel off coated castings with prolonged use. Ultimately, most submersible pumps suffer from short service lives when being used for see water.

Many operations and manufacturers are still using stainless steel pumps for seawater, but the aforementioned corrosion ends up increasing the costs greatly. Stainless steel forms a chromium oxide coating on the surface, but in the absence of sufficient oxygen, the surface degrades and corrodes quickly.

Marine organisms or packing can often cause degradation of stainless steel pumps. Once the surface is compromised, water eventually ends up in the motor and the pump fails. The main takeaway here is that stainless steel pumps are not fully resistant to seawater.

In experiments that Tsurumi have conducted on stainless steel pumps, they have found that degradation begins usually within six months. We don’t feel that is a long enough service life for any pump.

Why Tsurumi TM-Series Pumps are the Industry Standard for Seawater

Tsurumi submersible sea water pumps feature a combination of titanium and resin. This allows Tsurumi pumps to transport seawater with no corrosion or degradation of any part of the pump.

Tsurumi’s resin components are specially designed so that each individual part is made of the resin that is most likely to prevent the pump from corroding.The end result is a pump that has a much longer service life than those made of stainless steel or standard resin materials.

Tsurumi submersible seawater pumps can be used for intake, draining and circulation purposes. The lubricating oil is made out of food grade paraffin. This makes it fish friendly and 100% safe for operations involving fish, such as water tanks, fish preserves and fish farms.

Tsurumi submersible sea water pumps offer discharge bore diameters from 40 to 80mm. Motor capacities start at 0.25 kilowatts and go up to 3.7 kilowatts. Single phase pumps are available up to 0.75 kilowatts. There are also models available that operate automatically.

Tsurumi KTZ Pumps for Demanding Conditions

When it comes to submersible pumps, Tsurumi is the biggest name in the business. One of their most popular varieties of submersible pumps is the KTZ Series. The KTZ Series is widely considered to be the flagship line in the submersible pump series.

The KTZ Series features cast iron bodies, combined with high chromium, cast iron impellers. This cast iron construction allows the KTZ Series to withstand the most demanding conditions that can be found in the mining, construction and aggregate industries.

The KTZ series is among the most versatile in the industry. Impellers, hose couplings and suction covers can be swapped out to reconfigure any KTZ Series pumps for high volume performance or high head.

KTZ series pumps feature dual silicon carbide mechanical seals installed in the oil chamber. Tsurumi has patented an oil lifter which ensures that the mechanical seals will be sufficiently lubricated and cooled even if the oil level drops which in turn extends seal life substantially.

KTZ Series pumps are available with outputs of 1.5 kW to 11 kW. The 7.5 kW and 11 kW sizes feature seal pressure relief ports. This ensures that the seals are not exposed to any pressure other than the pressure that is produced by the level of sump submergence. This is crucial for higher pressure applications because it prevents premature wear and the failure of mechanical seals.

Discharge bore sizes are 50 mm, 80 mm, 100 mm and 150 mm. Smaller models allow for solids passage of 8.5 mm while the larger models go up to 20 mm.
