Design principles

  1. The smart stator is divided into two parts, so that maintenance can be done by one person without the need to remove either suction or discharge pipework. Additionally the two piece Smart Rotor allows for quick removal and replacement. There is no need to dismantle the joint or use special tools, giving a time saving.
  1. Another design feature is the integrated retensioning device, which allows the clamping between the rotor and stator to be adjusted for optimum flow and readjusted when the flow rate reduces due to wear. Readjustment is done in a matter of minutes, returning pump performance to the required level without replacing any components. As such, the service life of both the rotor and stator is significantly extended, removing the need for replacement parts and reducing the life cycle costs of the SEEPEX pump.
