EBARA International is one of the pre-eminent, global pump manufacturers with over $5 billion in annual sales. In the United States, EBARA USA has approximately $10 million of inventory. The benefit to our customers is short lead-time; when a pump is down, you cannot wait long!
At Progressive Pumps, we have been providing EBARA cast-iron submersible pumps to our customers for 10 years. These pumps can be found in some really harsh environments, such as brackish water, and the pumps have performed maintenance-free and with long Mean Times Between Failure (MTBF).
Recently, an EBARA Packaged Pump System was used for an emergency lift station upgrade for the city of Southside, Alabama. An EBARA EP1 duplex packaged pump system was used to replace the existing self-priming system that failed. Two 30 horsepower EBARA submersible pumps (model DLKFU) were used, with each providing 150 gallons per minute (GPM) at 145 feet of total dynamic head. EBARA provided a “turn-key” packaged system where the pumps, piping, valves and controls came as a complete package. The EBARA packaged system is pre-assembled at the factory and shipped directly to the site ready to be installed.
The EBARA EP1 packaged station was installed and online at the end of the second day. The city of Southside believes that a non-packaged system would have taken two months to install; instead with the EBARA packaged pump system, installation was done in two days. With this quick install, the city had minimal downtime and bypass pumping.
