Septic tank pumps op­er­ate out of sight and out of mind most of the time. Sub­merged in an ag­gres­sive en­vi­ron­ment, the pumps in these tanks are cru­cial in keep­ing ba­sic sewage sys­tems work­ing.

Aussie Pumps sup­ply Tsu­rumi UTZ se­ries sub­mersibles which are ideal for septic tank in­stal­la­tions and pump re­place­ments.

“When han­dling ef­flu­ent a re­li­able sub­mersible pump is vi­tal,” said Kurt Chap­man from Aussie Pumps. “Many septic sys­tems in­stalled use cheap pumps just to meet a cost point. We rec­om­mend they are re­placed with Tsu­rumi UTZ pumps be­cause of their quality and suit­abil­ity. Their cast iron body out­lasts rolled 304 stain­less steel equiv­a­lents, they are easy to ser­vice and suit the ag­gres­sive ph lev­els found in the tanks,” he said.

De­signed specif­i­cally for ef­flu­ent and sewage ap­pli­ca­tions, the pump is fit­ted with a unique vortex style im­peller that passes com­press­ible solids of up to 35mm in di­am­e­ter. The max­i­mum flow avail­able from the range is 440 lpm while the max­i­mum lift, or ver­ti­cal head is 12.5 me­tres.

The pumps are pow­ered by sin­gle phase, ca­pac­i­tor start, elec­tric mo­tors in the range of 0.4kW to 0.75kW. All pumps are sup­plied with a heavy duty 10 me­tre sub­mersible ca­ble.

The au­to­matic pumps fea­ture a sim­ple float con­trol sys­tem that pre­vents dry run­ning, re­duces power con­sump­tion and ex­tends op­er­at­ing life.

The pump’s mo­tor is a dry type squir­rel cage in­duc­tion style housed in a wa­ter­tight cas­ing. It con­forms to class E in­su­la­tion and the UT pumps can be used in am­bi­ent tem­per­a­tures of up to 40 de­grees C.

The UT se­ries in­cor­po­rate a vortex im­peller so per­for­mance is largely un­af­fected by mi­nor wear. The unique vortex de­sign al­lows solids in sus­pen­sion to eas­ily pass through the pump.

Tsu­rumi in­cor­po­rate a num­ber of fea­tures that en­hance the life ex­pectancy of the pump and cut main­te­nance costs. These in­clude a unique anti- wick­ing ca­ble gland. Wa­ter is pre­vented from wick­ing down inside the ca­ble. The mo­tor is pro­tected even if the ca­ble is dam­aged or the end ac­ci­den­tally im­mersed.

All Tsu­rumi pumps have a dou­ble sil­i­con car­bide me­chan­i­cal seal. Both seal sur­faces are sub­merged in an oil cham­ber, well away from the pumped liq­uid. A patented oil lifter en­sures the me­chan­i­cal seal faces are al­ways lu­bri­cated and cooled, even if the pump is in­stalled hor­i­zon­tally.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion on the com­plete range of Tsu­rumi sub­mersible pumps is avail­able on the Aus­tralian Pump web­site (www.aussiepump­ or call them on 02 8865 3500.

The Tsu­rumi UTZ au­to­matic sub­mersible pump is specif­i­cally de­signed for septic tanks and built for en­durance and re­li­a­bil­ity.
