BJM Pumps released the new XP-KZN heavy duty submersible explosion proof pump. The XP-KZN Heavy Duty Submersible Slurry Pumps are specifically designed for tough conditions where explosion-proof, FM, C/US approved (Class I, Division 1, Group C & D) are needed. The XP-KZN features a top discharge, slim-line design with agitator to suspend heavy slurries containing coal, ash, sand, gravel or other abrasive materials.
Like the initial top-selling KZN Series, the new explosion proof, FM rated, XP-KZN Series, features robust construction and unmatched design, making it able to outperform and outlast standard wastewater predecessors in harsh environments. The top discharge and slim design allow for an easy fit into tight thin spaces. The agitator helps keep solids suspended in liquid and helps prevent the pump from clogging, reducing capital and operating costs. The impeller, wear plate and agitator are made of abrasive resistant 28 percent chrome iron (600 Brinell, 57 Rockwell C). The replaceable wear plate's hardened surface on the suction side prevents erosion, ensuring optimum performance.
The XP-KZN is protected by Class H motor insulation and built in amperage (FLA) and temperature overload protection. It features double silicon carbide mechanical seals in a separate oil filled seal chamber and a heavy duty lip seal. Volutes are cast from hardened Ductile Iron. The XP-KZN Series is able to pump a sump or pit down to within inches of the bottom. The XP-KZN slurry pumps feature flows up to 665 gpm, and heads to 61 ft.
