The Water Environment Federation's Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) is the largest water quality exhi-bition in North America. From September 23 to 25, 2019, Pleuger Industries, Hamburg-based pioneer of high-quality submersible motor pumps since 1929, will present in Chi-cago its latest pump solutions to leading experts in hydrau-lic engineering, environmental technology, urban water management, flood protection and process water supply.
Water is the basis of public health, safety and a necessary means of production. Nevertheless, many countries are unable to provide their cities, farms and farmland with sufficient water. The World Health Organization found that economic losses due to inadequate water supply and sanitation costs 260 billion dollars a year. This is offset by too much water: The latest changes in precipitation patterns make reliable flood protection and soil drainage a strategic challenge for many municipalities. Pleuger Industries has extensive knowledge in these sectors and is positioning itself at WEFTEC as a supplier of durable submersible motor pumps in the water industries mentioned.
This year's WEFTEC in Chicago stands for Pleuger under the sign of sustainability: The showcased well, polder and pressure booster units are time and wear resistant, climate-efficient and enable cost-effective water transport. Pleuger's permanent magnet motors increase efficiency by up to 14 percentage points thereby reducing CO2 emissions. The environmentally friendly pump units protect against flooding and pump large quantities of water at low pressure. Since 90% of the life cycle costs of a submersible motor pump are directly related to power consumption, Pleuger's efficient motors save energy, time and money. Pleuger's submersible motor pumps for hot water appli-cations have already been used in many district heating pro-jects in Europe. Pleuger Industries has recently opened a sales office in Miami to ensure rapid technology availability in the USA.
For decades, Pleuger has stood for pump solutions that meet the highest standards of the water industry. Whether municipal water supply, agricultural irrigation, high water protection or general industry - Pleuger offers cost-effective pump units that minimize the risk of failure and optimize the return on invest-ment over the entire life cycle of an operation. Since every pro-ject in water supply involves special requirements, Pleuger's experienced engineers at the Hamburg Competence Centre work together on special solutions according to customer speci-fications. Each development phase of a water project is trans-parent and offers the customer full insight. In the standard pump segment, Pleuger uses precisely this project experience to continuously further develop its technologies.
