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 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 MG Series Pumps

The Tsurumi MG Series is a series of pumps that is designed for the sewage industry. Tsurumi is known for their submersible pumps, but this series is even better: they are submersible grinder pumps.

They are designed for any effluent drainage application, but are most often used for sewage when the solids are so large that they would normally clog pipes in other pumps. The MG series pumps grind up the solids. This produces smaller pieces and allows the sewage to be transferred through a smaller pipe.

Tsurumi Pumps - MG Series

The grinding mechanism is located in the suction port. This is important because it means the large pieces are ground into smaller pieces before they even enter the pump. Because the sewage has been ground, it can be pumped into a smaller pipe without any risk of the sewage clogging the pipe.

In addition, the Tsurumi MG series pumps feature and empower which helps to prevent clogging. This grinder is extremely resistant to abrasion because it is made of cast chromium iron. Tsurumi has a patented oil lifter that greatly increases the life of the sealing mechanism by stabilising the mechanical seal.

Tsurumi MG Series pumps also feature a thermal protector that turns off the motor in case of excess heat buildup. It is also effective in the case of mechanical or electrical failure. In addition, MG series pumps are designed for high head. This allows them to transfer fluids great distances.

Applications of Tsurumi MG Series Pumps

Because the MG series is designed specifically for sewerage, the list of applications is quite unique and specific. They are used for community sewerage, pressurised sewerage systems, domestic effluent drainage and other drainage applications. These include but are not limited to spinning, paper or food processing factories, exhibition sites and campsites.

If you would like to learn more about the MG Series or any pumps from any of our international manufacturers, call Pump Solutions Australasia today. Our world class customer service team will be happy to talk to you about a pumping solution. Our number is 1300 793 418.

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.

Tsurumi Pumps Take Steps to Help Avoid Corrosion

Tsurumi Pumps have a reputation for making some of the best submersible pumps in the world. But even the Tsurumi submersible pumps can suffer a shortening of life cycle and efficiency when exposed to aggressive media such as salt water.

One of the more common strategies for fighting corrosion is to retrofit anode blocks while replacing parts. This is necessary because even pumps made of supposedly rustproof materials like stainless steel are susceptible to corrosion when exposed to aggressive media on a daily basis.

Tsurumi Pumps Take Steps to Help Avoid Corrosion

Stainless steel is corrosion-resistant because it has a thin layer on the top called the “passive layer.” It is self-repairing, though on a limited basis, due to its molecular structure. However, that thin layer can be eroded, exposing the cast elements beneath it.

Those cast metals are susceptible to corrosion. The only material that is close to being 100% trustworthy and resistant to corrosion is titanium. Basically, the more aggressive the material in which the pump is sitting, the greater effect it can have on the metal on the outside of the pump.

The Tsurumi Pump Solution

Tsurumi has a solution for fighting corrosion in submersible pumps: retrofittable sacrificial anodes. They are solid place which are made of zinc or aluminum. The anodes are attached to the casing with screws. This causes what Tsurumi calls a bimetal corrosion process. In a bimetal corrosion process, the less worthy metal is the one affected by the corrosion while the more hearty metal is not.

The end result is that the superficial anodes become rusty while the functional parts of the pump are almost totally unscathed by corrosion.
