Tsurumi America launched the Avant series, a line of submersible, explosion-proof pumps created to deliver excellent performance and increase cost savings on a range of wastewater applications.

The Avant series was released this year in Asia and now makes its debut in North America. The series was certified in accordance with FM Global explosion-proof specifications to ensure products conform to the highest standards of safety, Tsurumi says. The pumps feature a modern design and IE3 premium-efficiency motors that deliver high performances and withstand continuous-duty cycles, the company adds.

Additionally, they have an exclusive closed-circuit cooling system, utilizing a water-glycol mixture that prevents contamination of the system while cooling the motor. Also, customers can order tailor-made Avant pumps from the factory, with specific configurations that match the demands of their jobs while boosting results, Tsurumi says.

“We are very proud to bring the new Avant series to North America, as these modern, explosion-proof pumps will deliver efficiency and ensure energy savings on a number of projects in the wastewater industry, such as sewage collection from commercial buildings and municipal systems,” says Glenn Wieczorek, managing director at Tsurumi. “It’s also exciting to give our customers the opportunity to build the exact pump they need: with a specific paint thickness or control panel type, for example, or a trimmed impeller to fit an exact duty point.”

Named MQ, the new line of Avant pumps has five different types of impellers: Open Channel (MQB), Chopper (MQC), Vortex (MQU), Grinder (MQG) and High Head (MQS). The line also offers ranges of specifications featuring 2- to 16-in. discharge bore diameters and 4- to 215-hp motor output specifications.
