Xylem Launches New Stainless Steel, Energy-Efficient Pump

GWT-e-HM-Horizontal Multi-Stage-2 pumps_CANVASMORTON GROVE, Ill. — Xylem Inc recently launched the Goulds Water Technology brand e-HM stainless steel series horizontal multistage pump – a water pump for commercial and industrial applications that is up to 30 percent more efficient than most similar pumps on the market.

Pumping water in production-oriented applications such as washing, cleaning, food and beverage processing, as well as large-scale refrigeration, can be energy intensive, impacting both resource use and operational expenses. The e-HM pump also offers a broad hydraulic range, and a variety of configuration options that enables users to customize the pump to meet their specific needs, simultaneously improving performance and reducing carbon dioxide emissions, as well as costs.

“The technology of the e-HM series provides versatility in operations, flexibility in applications and streamlined performance that helps customers achieve cost and energy savings in a single product,” said Nick Daddabbo, product manager, commercial products for Xylem’s Applied Water Systems business unit. “Operations managers seeking to run facilities as efficiently as possible need total system solutions that help meet regulations and codes such LEED standards.”

Constructed of AISI 316 stainless steel, the e-HM series offers six models, as well as a one-piece or sleeve design, making it highly customizable. The product’s high-pressure boosting capabilities and space-saving footprint makes it suitable for a variety of configurations across a range of industrial applications, including:

• Food and beverage
• Industrial cleaning
• Industrial refrigeration
• Water treatment
• Custom OEM

“The e-HM can be customized to individualized processes, helping customers solve space constraint issues without sacrificing quality or performance,” said Daddabbo.

The e-HM series is built on the advanced hydraulics of Xylem’s reliable e-SV vertical multistage product line, which was introduced in September 2010. The e-HM series has a maximum flow rate of up to 127 gpm. A balanced impeller reduces axial thrust by 40 percent and a 20 percent thicker stainless steel pump body enhances durability and increases reliability. Reduced thrust and thicker pump bodies result in longer bearing and component life, which helps to reduce the customer’s total cost of ownership by up to 30 percent.
