Clean wastewater pumps without fiber collection

SIRIUS soft starter reduces the maintenance effort when pumps get blocked. Impellers are frequently blocked by sanitary and other waste products that are not intended for removal in wastewater. Blockages of this kind can be a costly aspect of wastewater handling and have to be removed manually.

Automatic pump cleaning with the SIRIUS 3RW55 soft starter

To ward against deposits and reduce downtimes due to blockages, time-consuming and costly cleaning of pumps on a regular basis is necessary. However deposits can be avoided with the SIRIUS 3RW55 soft starter's pump cleaning function. An integrated measuring technology detects soiling early and triggers automatic cleaning of the pump.

How does the SIRIUS 3RW55 soft starter prevent blocked pumps?

The SIRIUS 3RW55 can evaluate the motor current and active power. If defined threshold values have been exceeded, an increased amount of soiling of the pump. When this happens, the pump cleaning function of the soft starter offers the option of automatic cleaning. During the cleaning function, the pump alternates between forward and reverse operations at rated-speed or reduced speed and therefore outputs a maximum possible torque on the motor. This loosens dirt deposits from the impellers and lowers maintenance costs and increases plant availability.
