• Vertical pumps: SJT, SJM, SJP, JTS

New pump ranges for water applications

SMD: single stage, double suction, axially split pumps used to pump clean and raw water in municipal installations, desalination plants, water pipelines and in general industry. The SMD pump has the highest efficiency and optimum hydraulic fit that meets your most stringent and toughest water pumping requirements. Its modern design allows for lower vibration, lower energy consumption and easier maintenance. Furthermore, it has been designed to operate reliably in harsh environmental conditions, such as high ambient temperatures. The SMD pump can handle flow rates of up to 16,000 m3/h and deliver heads of up to 260 m.

MSD-RO: derived from our renowned MSD range is our newest axially split, two stage, double volute high pressure pump for membrane feed in RO desalination plants. It meets the needs of a high pressure pump for the desalination market in large seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) plants, covering train capacities from 20,000-30,000 m3/d.

MSD-RO is the result of Sulzer's experience in supplying high pressure pumps for large SWRO plants worldwide, totalling 2.5 millions m3/d of installed capacity. The MSD-RO delivers a high level of hydraulic performance for its defined operating range, including exceptionally high efficiencies and optimum suction performance. Its top efficiency and robustness complies with the most stringent requirements of the desalination market.

MBN-RO: developed from our famous MBN range is our latest ring section multistage high pressure pump for membrane feed in RO desalination plants. It has been designed specifically for high pressure membrane feed services in SWRO applications. In addition to its top class efficiency, it provides the advantage of easy maintenance with quick and easy access to main wear parts, such as mechanical seals or bearings without disassembling the suction and discharge nozzle.

Manufactured in Duplex or Superduplex, as standard materials for a variety of seawater qualities to avoid pitting and crevice corrosion, it fulfils the most stringent needs of a high pressure pump for the desalination market, covering capacities up to 1,000 m3/h.
