Lowara presents its updated SV pump range, which has been completely re-designed and expanded to provide superior performances and advanced technological solutions. The Lowara SV series features vertical multistage electrical pumps made of stainless steel, designed for a large number of applications including water treatment, water supply, light industry, cooling and air conditioning, pumping of acid and alkaline solutions, oils and alcohols, and irrigation. All the materials used in the manufacture of this updated range of SV pumps are suitable for drinking water applications (WRAS certified). The new Lowara SV pumps have been re-designed to meet the dual goal of maximizing the performance of the liquid end and motor and of reducing the maintenance requirements to a minimum in order to make the pumps suitable for a wide range of applications. In particular, special attention was given to reducing axial thrusts of the liquid end, typical of pumps with a multistage configuration. This allows standard motors to be mounted without any need for intermediate devices which could have an adverse effect on the overall performance of the pumps. Moreover, the improved efficiency of the new pumps enables energy consumption to be substantially reduced, which means that the pumps are less expensive to run.
