Xylem unveils industrial dewatering pump
Flygt Biboα only operates when needed, delivering energy savings of up to 60% compared with traditional dewatering pumps.

Xylem’s Flygt Biboα is a dewatering pump designed to significantly reduce energy, wear and tear, and maintenance costs and it is part of a new generation of smart pumps which brings built-in intelligence to industrial dewatering.

Applying Decision Intelligence, Flygt Biboα automatically adapts to its environment and only operates when needed, delivering energy savings of up to 60% compared with traditional dewatering pumps. Operational wear and tear is also reduced by up to 70% as instances of snoring and dry running are minimised, leading to as much as a 50% reduction in repair and maintenance costs. Additionally, due to its compact and stable design, Biboα has 30% fewer components, reducing the amount of inventory needed.

Anders Casselbrant, global product manager, Submersible Dewatering Products at Xylem said that the company works with customers and communities across the world to bring digital transformation to the water sector, including the delivery of digital solutions. He added: “As the latest addition to our arsenal of smart pumps, Flygt Biboα is set to transform dewatering practices across the mining and construction industries.”
