1000th Archimedean screw pump

February 2021 | The 1,000th KUHN Archimedean screw pump

At the end of 2020 we received an order from the "Eichsfelder Kessel" regional wastewater association to supply and install three Archimedean screw pumps for the Bernterode sewage treatment plant.

When completed at the end of April of this year, one of these three units will be the 1,000th screw pump to leave our production line since 1978.

At the time, Kuhn GmbH was breaking completely new ground with technical dimensioning and qualified manufacturing. Today, KUHN is the largest German manufacturer of Archimedean screw pumps, which make a significant contribution to the success of the company.

In addition to production, the refurbishment of screw pump lifting stations has also become a key area of focus at our company. Tailor-made solutions are offered in line with customer requirements and solutions developed specifically for individual applications.

In the case of this order, three compact tube screws measuring 900 mm in diameter and 5000 mm in length are integrated within a sludge recirculation pumping station. With an energy-efficient IE4 engine, infinite height adjustment for adjusting volume flow rate and an aluminum weather protection hood, we are certain that this equipment will serve its purpose for many years to come.
