The SewaSlide pump maintenance aid makes the task of opening the pump a simple, one-person job.

KSB’s new SewaSlide pump maintenance aid is a valuable accessory to its Sewabloc family of wastewater pumps. The unit is a movable support that not only makes operations like impeller inspections, blockage clearances and seal replacements faster and easier, but it also makes the task of opening the pump a simple, one-person job.

How it works

With the SewaSlide in place, the maintenance technician simply undoes the bolts, which fasten the volute casing to the rest of the pump. Then the technician slides the core pump assembly (including the impeller, shaft, bearings, seals and motor) away from the volute casing, which remains in place, attached to its inlet and outlet pipes. Once the pump has been opened, the impeller is exposed so that the technician can easily remove the materials that have caused blockages, or perform other maintenance operations. Once these tasks have been completed, the pump can be quickly re-assembled by rolling the impeller/shaft/motor assembly back into place and re-inserting the bolts. No cranes or lifting apparatus are required, which saves both time and money.

The SewaSlide mechanism has been designed to fit around the normal Sewabloc pump mounts and to be quickly assembled or disassembled. For facilities with several Sewabloc pumps, a single SewaSlide unit can be moved between these pumps on an as-needed basis.

Additional details

These aids are a helpful addition to the Sewabloc family of single-stage, close-coupled centrifugal pumps, which are optimized for use with sewage, industrial wastewater and stormwater. The pumps are available in a range of sizes, with a maximum flow capacity of 830 cubic metres per hour, and they feature advanced KSB impellers designed to minimize clogging due to solids in the waste stream.

SewaSlide supports and Sewabloc pumps are available in Canada from KSB Pumps Inc., based in Mississauga, Ont.
