Pumping hot water from a sink with a Zip Tap.
Standard wastewater pumps are generally only rated for a fluid operating temperature of 40°C, occasionally a maximum of 60°C.
With Zip taps becoming a common feature, handling the drainage from these sinks requires a more robust pump.
Leading wastewater specialist Pump Technology has the solution.
Their technical team looked at pump options to match their compact DrainMinor and selected the Jung Pumpen U3K Spezial (SL). This features a mechanical seal rather than the lip shaft seal normally found with this small size of submersible pump.
Originally designed for mildly aggressive fluids, it has been adopted for challenging pumping requirements. Many leading fast-food chains, report excellent performance in applications with heavy deposits of coffee granules, milk skin etc.
The DrainMinor features a recyclable polyethylene tank and provides the perfect, compact wastewater pumping solution. It also boasts an integral (replaceable) charcoal vent, and a simple-to-remove lid for cleaning and maintenance, enabling easy installation and operation in tight spots.
For appliances such as combi ovens, pasta makers and dishwashers (also all needing to handle hotter water), they offer the DrainMajor with a 730HES hot water pump, suitable for 90°C
