Powerful and durable
Pumping at full speed 24/7
AKM was looking for powerful pumps that could move large volumes over long distances. In addition, they should be suitable for continuous operation and particularly resistant to abrasion and have a high level of operational reliability.
The experienced Bauer dealer Agrometer from Grindsted — he has been selling the entire product range since the 1970s — offers the best support, prompt spare parts supply and reliable service. Thanks to his commitment, Bauer’s SX pumps are particularly popular in Denmark.
Three gear- and pedestal pumps SX 2600 are used at AKM: two SX 2600 with 75 kW motor, one SX 2600 with 90 kW motor.
The dealer Agrometer completes the pumps with frequency control, suitable motors, control cabinet, etc. Two SX 2600 pump the process water that is produced when cleaning the potatoes to a lagoon four kilometres away, where the water is collected. The third pump brings the water from the lagoon three kilometres further to the irrigation machine, which irrigates the collected water until December because it does not freeze in Denmark. The pumps therefore run at full speed 24/7 from August to December.
Delivery rate: 190–200 m³ / h
Pressure at the pump: minimum 6 bar
