Eriez announces new design features have been added to select units in its sump cleaner line to enhance working conditions and better protect operators’ safety. New improvements incorporated in a selection of Eriez sump cleaner models include lift chip basket lids, sound reduction mufflers and a catalytic converter option.
Models in this sump cleaner line include the 120-volt electric units, with suction rates up to 85 GPM, as well as air venturi models, which use the most efficient powerhead for best suction performance with the least amount of feed air. Eriez Heavy Industries market manager Darrell Milton says, “Higher suction rates accelerate coolant evacuation speed, leading to reduced downtime and improved productivity.”
All Eriez sump cleaners 65 gallons and above feature new lift chip basket lids. Milton explains, “There is no longer a need to manually lift the lid off the unit and place it on the ground to remove the basket. This means the elimination of lifting and pinch points, reducing potential for injuries to operators.”
LP gas and 3-phase electric Eriez sump cleaner units now have special sound reduction mufflers for quieter operation. “Less machinery noise helps meet compliance requirements and creates a healthier, more efficient working environment,” Milton says.
Another new feature on Eriez LP gas sump cleaner units is the added option for a catalytic converter set-up. “We are committed to making design improvements such as this to help customers reduce pollutants and meet standards of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and other agencies,” Milton says.
