New in the range is the HPP400-E, a fully electric driven mud pump that offers great advantages in terms of sustainability and energy efficiency on its own – and in combination with the fully electric driven HDD-E series contributes significantly to a holistically sustainable and forward-looking construction site concept.
The mud pump of the new generation is ahead of the previous systems in many areas: With the electrical unit, the motor (compared to the conventional diesel engine-drive solution) only runs in active pump mode. In addition, the speed can be infinitely adjusted by the operator as required. The unit therefore only consumes electrical power when it is actively pumping. In addition – and particularly important in these times – energy costs are reduced and efficiency increases significantly through electrification. Also noise and CO2 emissions can be noticeably reduced, which is playing an increasingly important role in tendering processes – not only, but especially for projects in inner-city areas or in nature reserves.
Furthermore is the significantly reduced maintenance effort for the electric drive train not negligible. This means that recurring oil changes, valve clearance adjustments and other engine maintenance can be completely dispensed with, which ultimately saves time, costs and resources.
So far, the newly developed mud pump has been successfully deployed for personal use on construction sites in the area of digital and municipal infrastructure and is operated directly from the grid by a transformer station.
