The Next-Generation Dewatering Pump

Sulzer has over 50 years of experi-

ence with submersible pumps and
plays a leading role in their develop-
ment. As increasing demands are
placed on our customers, we enable
them to work in a more efficient way.
With the high performance of the
ABS submersible dewatering pump
XJ/XJS, the demand for quick and
effective dewatering is met.

Endurance for a Hard Life

The ABS submersible dewatering
pump XJ/XJS is a total solution for
operation in tough conditions. It offers
a sturdy, heavy-duty housing of cast
aluminum, as well as an impeller and
a wear ring in high-chrome steel alloy.
It also has diffusers coated in nitrile
rubber, opposing seal surfaces of sili-
con carbide and a double-cable-seal
system for the power cable entry.

Electronic Intelligence
Building the world’s smartest sub-
mersible dewatering pump means
eliminating potential problems and
unnecessary service work. Our
AquaTronic unit prevents incorrect
impeller rotation, as well as voltage
and over-amp problems. It also has
internal software that presents service
history and helps you monitor
the pump’s life cycle.

Our AquaPlug operates as a start-
stop panel would, offering a series of
monitoring features to warn the user
of potential problems before they
cause failure. There is no need for an Hands-On Development We learn which improvements to our

Several Outstanding Innovations

The ABS submersible dewatering

pump XJ/XJS is packed with excep-
tional innovations. These innova-
tions allow the pump to truly deliver
in mine-site dewatering applications.
For both management and users, the
superior features shown below pro-
vide benefits not found in any other
submersible dewatering pump.

• Ensures correct motor rotation,
irrespective of power connection
• Stops the pump at dry running
• Allows pump start via temperature
control or level sensor
• Stops the pump upon alarm for
overload or high temperature
• Stops the pump upon missing
phase or extreme phase unbalance
• Allows pump performance and ser-
vice diagnostic data to be viewed
on a PC via USB connection, ena-
bling accurate evaluation of service
and maintenance needs
• Provides warnings for: AquaPlug Level Sensor
- High and low voltage • Identical plug for all pumps, availa- • Together with AquaPlug, provides
- Low motor insulation ble with 16A and 32A sockets precise water level control
- Water in oil • Alarm for motor overheating or
power failure, plus indication when
service is needed, e.g. due to water
