The Pump Industry Awards winner for Product of the Year has been announced, with the award-winning product improving efficiency and reliability with its innovative hydraulic design.

Sulzer’s XJ 900 submersible dewatering pump has won the category at the leading industrial event – held by the British Pump Manufacturers’ Association (BPMA) – which has recognised excellence in the sector for 20 years.

Finalists were selected by a judging panel, including independent experts and representatives from the press and sponsoring companies, as well as open voting through the organiser’s website and various social media outlets.

The new XJ 900 offers an economical and reliable option for dewatering applications. 

Whether working in mining, tunneling or construction, the pumps are a valuable asset in handling water ingress with reduced energy usage and downtime.

The new pump includes several outstanding design features including the state-of-the-art hydraulic design which allows for easy conversion between high head and high flow applications without having to change impellers.

The XJ 900 underwent rigorous field testing in different critical applications, and was exposed to some of the severest operating conditions, exceeding all expectations. 

Cillian Lawlor was part of the product development and introduction of the XJ 900. 

“The new technology presented some significant challenges for testing and assembly,” Mr Lawlor said.

“Thanks to a great team who were willing to adapt and offer solutions, we were able to overcome these challenges and launch the XJ 900 into the market.”

Head of the Industry Business Unit at Sulzer, Veli-Pekka Tiittanen, said, Sulzer’s innovative solutions are designed to add value and strengthen the competitive position of our customers. 

“The XJ 900 pump fulfils this criterion and adds to our existing world-class dewatering solutions.”
