Caprari's proposal
No. 5 Vertical Lineshaft pumps (c/w 250 kW electric motors)
Caprari designed the proper solution to fulfill the technical requirements given by the Federal Ministry of Water Resources. The pumps are installed in the “Sediment Removal Basin” and are operated by a single special control panel. One of the main problems was to have reliable controls in heavy duty ambient with high temperature and humidity. We designed therefore the panel with an automatic regulation of relative humidity by means of hygrostats to grant the reliability and the continuous running of the pumps.
