Lutz-Jesco unveils German water treatment solutions in Africa

WERTHEIM (Germany), June 18, 2024

Lutz-Jesco, a leading German manufacturer of dosing and motor-driven pumps as well as a range of products for the treatment and supply of drinking water, is showcasing its Memdos Smart dosing pump and B3 drum pump at the upcoming Water Africa 2024 trade fair in Ghana.
To be held from June 26 to 28, the Water Africa 2024 will draw utility leaders, engineering consultants and contractors, equipment manufacturers and suppliers as well as senior government officials from across the globe and representatives from funding agencies and non-governmental organisations. 
The key industry event aligns with the Ghanaian government’s goals for water and sanitation, said the organisers.
"A refreshing sip of cold water at the turn of a tap is nothing but a dream for many ,” says Heinz Lutz, CEO of Lutz Holding. 
“2.2 billion people worldwide currently have no access to clean and safe drinking water. Around half a billion of them live in Africa. These people live under the constant danger or catching life-threatening diseases, which in the worst case can develop into epidemics," stated Lutz.
“In view of these alarming figures, it is clear that the international community must act to provide universal access to clean drinking water.”
Seeking to play its part, Lutz-Jesco has developed new technologies that support efficient water treatment, and which will be on display at the Water Africa 2024 trade fair. 
The German group will be showcasing its Memdos Smart, a stepper motor dosing pump that helps to effect the improvement of water quality in small wastewater treatment plants and waterworks. 
Steffen Roth, the Head of Development at Lutz-Jesco, said: "The pump performs a number of functions, including the introduction of flocculants into the water. These agents serve to combine impurities and suspended matter into larger particles which are easier to separate."
According to him, precise dosing is crucial for high quality water treatment. “To this end, we have fitted the Memdos Smart with a microprocessor-controlled stepper motor,” stated Roth. 
Its special feature is that unlike standard motors, the motor of the diaphragm pump can be run asynchronously. It works at higher speed during priming so that it draws in the liquid more quickly with stronger negative pressure, whilst working at a lower speed during controlled and even discharge.
“Thanks to the stepper motor, we are able to achieve an almost constant supply stream, which enables gentle, low-pulsation and precise dosing of chemicals for water treatment in small wastewater treatment plants and waterworks.” The Memdos Smart is available in eight performance levels – with supply streams between 2 and 180 litres per hour, he added.
At Water Africa 2024, Lutz-Jesco will also be showcasing its B3 Battery, a new battery-powered drum pump that combines mobility and energy independence for water and wastewater management in remote areas with poor infrastructure.
Fitted with a brushless 320 watt DC motor, it offers a delivery capacity of up to 180 litres per minute and a delivery head of 11.8 metres of water column. 
"With the new B3 Battery, we have succeeded for the first time in making the performance of a battery-operated drum pump comparable to that of cable-connected models", says Michael Raabe, Head of Sales at Lutz Jesco GmbH. One battery charge is enough to empty a 200-litre drum 14 times – in around 15 minutes. 
At a lower speed, a 1000-litre IBC container can be pumped out 5.8 times in 51 minutes. The pumping station is available in different versions to convey as many chemicals as possible for water treatment, including a version made of polypropylene (PP) for sodium hydroxide and of polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) for chloric acid.-TradeArabia News Service
