New DrainKing duty/standby pumping system now offers more flexible installation and more reliable operation.

The New DrainKing, duty/standby wastewater pumping system, incorporating Jung Pumpen pumps, from Berkshire based Pump Technology Ltd., now features more flexible installation and more reliable operation with even easier maintenance.

By eliminating traditional cable hung on/off floats and utilising the pumps own proven rigid float arms with their large triangular low-level floats, pump control is simplified and improved. This design is far less prone to debris interfering with the float movement hence the stop/start of the pump is always more reliable.

Utilizing this float arm design also means that the invert levels in to the DrainKing are now lowered considerably making positioning of the unit much more flexible. It is now easier to fit the specified pipe gradient into the tank. Previously the minimum invert level was 260mm, now, with the Jung Pumpen UK6 pumps fitted, it can be as low as 120mm.

The DrainKing comes supplied with its own pump station control panel. This cycles the duty pump, activates the standby pump and alarm.

In practice the control panel selects a duty pump and cycles it after every 4 hours of total operation. In the unlikely event of blockage, or pump failure, a finger float mounted on the side of the tank will detect a high wastewater level and activate an audio and visual alarm on the panel. The panel then selects the standby pump, its float arm already raised for switching on and pumping.

The panel shows pump status for both pumps. In the event of a power failure the alarm is powered by a rechargeable battery. The panel has three volt-free contacts for connection to a Pump Technology Ltd remote alarm and/or to a BMS system.

These three volt-free alarms aid BMS logic when features such as solenoid shut off valves are incorporated into the appliance/drainage system.

The DrainKing can be fitted with a range of Jung Pumpen pumps, both single and 3phase.

With the US 103 E installed pumping capacity is over 12m head. With the 730HES or 1030HES pumps the DrainKing is also suitable for pumping hot wastewater continuously up to 90°C. Because of this special feature, this product is ideal for commercial kitchens, laundries, and commercial buildings.

The experienced application team at Pump Technology Ltd, based in Berkshire, provide specification and sizing support for consultants and installers alike. Speed of response is one of the company’s watchwords. Callers can speak to an engineer who can discuss their site and pumping application straight away, providing confidence to progress the project with the correct pumping system specification.

The New DrainKing tank and pumps are all held in stock and can be dispatched the same day.
