Grindex, a world leader in electrical submersible pumps, is now launching Grindex Mega Inox, a 90kW (50Hz) and 134Hp (60Hz) pump manufactured completely in stainless-steel. The pump is built on the well proven cast iron Mega pump platform and at the same time an extension of the current completely stainless-steel Inox pump range. With this addition, Grindex is reaffirming its leading market position within submersible drainage pumps and pumping accessories.

Dewatering applications’ worst challenge is the combination of a corrosive environment and contaminated water with abrasive solids and tough handling due to the temporary nature of the installation. A protective coating will only protect the pump until the first scratch. The Grindex Inox range available from 2008 solves this problem by having dewatering pumps made completely in stainless-steel. The 90kW Mega Inox will considerably enhance the present range of Inox pumps, available in 2kW to 8kW.

The pump is suitable for applications with pH 2-10 and with abrasive particles in a typically demanding dewatering situation. The stainless-steel hydraulic wet end has proven itself over the years as an option that could be added to the standard cast iron Mega pump. Now the stainless-steel Mega is completed by even offering the stator housing in stainless-steel.

"When we´re out in the field and visiting customers that for many years make due with less than perfect coated solutions, we anticipate that the new Mega Inox will solve a lot of their headache applications," says Peter Uvemo, regional manager Grindex.
