Residue Drainage Pumps as Countermeasures against Zika Virus and Dengue Feverand Dengue Fever

Oct, 2019

Since its foundation in 1924 in Japan, Tsurumi Manufacturing Co., Ltd. has been engaged in the manufacture, supply and sales of pumps, environmental devices and related equipment, with submersible pumps being key products. Just regarding pumps, Tsurumi has a wide range of product lines from compact household pumps and light-duty pumps for small septic tanks to medium and heavy-duty construction dewatering pumps that are used for mining and civil engineering, tunneling and large-scale construction projects, and heavy-duty wastewater pumps for water treatment plants and flood control pumping stations. This article introduces Tsurumi's residue drainage pumps that the company has been manufacturing and selling for over 50 years.

Capable of draining shallow ponded and stagnant water

Tsurumi's residue drainage pumps suck and drain shallow ponded and stagnant water. In addition to being compact and lightweight, which makes them readily portable, these pumps run on a single-phase power supply, so they are easy to handle in every way. They can pump water down to 1 mm in depth and some models come equipped with a reverse-flow preventing mechanism and/or suction attachment. These features are used to drain shallow ponded water from construction site floors, excavated pits, water collection and feed tanks, and puddles.

Residue Drainage Pumps Lineup

Drain water to 1mm

  • HSR series
  • HSR
Can pump water as shallow as 5mm from the bottom of the pump and drain water to 1mm in depth.

Drain water to 1mm, prevent reverse-flow

  • LSC series
  • LSC
Can drain water to 1mm in depth. A valve seat and swing check valve prevent suctioned water from backflowing.

Portable suction attachment, prevent reverse-flow

  • LSP series
  • LSP
Can pump pooled water from shallow recesses using the suction attachment. A syphon breaker mechanism prevents backflowing and the seal water from draining out.

Effective tools in the fight against Zika Virus and Dengue Fever

Tsurumi's residue drainage pumps are also effective tools in the fight against Zika Virus and Dengue Fever. These contagious diseases are borne and spread by mosquitoes, which lay their eggs in ponded water. So, depriving mosquitoes of the places they need to breed is a surefire way to prevent contagion. Because these can-be-deadly diseases are prevalent in the tropics and subtropics, many construction sites in Southeast Asia are proactively using Tsurumi's residue drainage pumps to remove ponded water and eliminate these health threats at the source.

Tsurumi's residue drainage pumps remove ponded water where disease-carrying mosquitoes like to breed.

Original quality designed in Japan

Tsurumi pumps are designed in Japan. Though compact in size, they come loaded with field-tested and proven proprietary technologies like an original anti-wicking cable, motor protector, dual inside mechanical seals with silicon carbide faces and Oil Lifter. Moreover, consumable parts are made of wear-resistant materials that enable continuous duty. Therefore, every Tsurumi pump is designed to deliver outstanding durability, stable performance and high reliability even in dry-running operation.
