Xylem has unveiled a new series of smart dewatering pumps under its Godwin brand at the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC).
The Godwin NC150S Dri-Prime pump is the first in the new Godwin S Series. It features Godwin Field Smart Technology (FST), the first-in-industry telemetry and wireless technology that provides smart remote monitoring and control of the pump from any smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. Cellular and satellite connectivity and GPS enables the tracking, monitoring, and control of the pump in real-time, wherever it is located.
“The Godwin NC150S, along with all diesel pumps in the Godwin S series, can be controlled remotely from anywhere in the world,” said Kevin Snow, Godwin global product manager. “Imagine the value of not having to send someone to the construction site or lift station in the middle of the night, or over the weekend, to see if the pump is running properly, or to check if fuel levels are okay.”
The new Godwin series features Xylem’s non-clog impeller Flygt N-Technology, used in more than 300,000 locations globally. With its self-cleaning reliability and sustained hydraulic efficiency, the technology is designed to ensure pump operation during peak performance.
“We listened very closely to our customers and examined usage data from hundreds of field tests to re-imagine, re-design, and re-engineer our legendary Godwin Dri-Prime pump. The result marks a new era in dewatering, and we are incredibly excited to bring this smart solution to the market,” said Mike Ramos, director of engineering for Xylem Dewatering. “An efficient and sustainable dewatering option, the NC150S is capable of tackling the most challenging modern wastewater dewatering jobs.”
Smart design and manufacturing practices mean that all of the diesel engines and electric motors available on Godwin S Series Dri-Prime pumps deliver more uptime, with product reliability increased on average by 20 per cent. The NC150S also features longer maintenance service intervals and reduced service time, by 40 per cent on average. For example, there is no need to separate the pump from the engine for compressor belt service, making it a simple 30-minute task.
“We’ve learned through thousands of hours of hands-on application experience and testing how to simplify maintenance requirements while ensuring even longer service intervals, building on Godwin’s renowned reliability,” said Snow.
