Chicago Pneumatic Power Technique (CP) has introduced WEDA, a small range of five dewatering pumps to the North American market. WEDA pumps are ideal for customers in the construction and rental industries, where small, lightweight, portable and easily maintained pumps are required to perform daily jobs quickly.

Included in the five WEDA pumps are two drainage pumps (WEDA 04, WEDA 08), two sludge/trash pumps (WEDA 04S, WEDA 08S) and a residual pump (WEDA Q4B). They provide fast and efficient dewatering for a wide variety of applications, including excavations in construction areas, general dewatering requirements at mine, shipyard and other industrial sites, fire brigades, utility installations and repairs, maintenance and cleanup tasks in urban areas, and government and military response and preparedness program.

The design of the pump's outer jacket for cooling and thermo protection keeps it running safely under various conditions. All pumps can handle fluid temperatures up to 95 F and have a maximum submerged depth of 16 ft. (4.8 m).

WEDA 04, WEDA 08 Drainage Pumps

The WEDA 04 and WEDA 08 drainage pumps have a polyurethane semi vortex impeller that is designed to handle water on construction sites, in manholes and industrial pits with very low risk of clogging. A high torque capacitor/motor and a three-terminal auto cut prevent the motor from overload and dry burning.

The WEDA 04 features 0.5 horsepower (hp) with a weight of 20 lbs. (9 kg). The pump has a discharge of 2 in. (5 cm) with a maximum flow of 66 gallons per minute and 4.2 liters per second (l/sec). The WEDA 08 offers 1 hp and a weight of 27 lbs. (12. 2 kg). With a discharge of 2 in., the maximum flow for the WEDA 08 is 86 gpm, and 5.4 l/sec. The WEDA 04 is 13.4 in. (34 cm) long compared to 13 in. (33 cm) for the WEDA 08.

WEDA 04B Residual Pump

This residual pump can pump down to one millimeter. A rubber coated bottom helps to avoid damage to tanks and pools. A 1-in. (2.5 cm) outlet with a non-return valve lifts and moves the pump without spilling or losing suction. Additionally, a 2-in. outlet transforms the pump into a regular dewatering pump. With a maximum flow of 60 gpm and 3.75 l/sec, the WEDA 04B weighs 21 lbs. (9.5 kg).

WEDA 04S, WEDA 08S Sludge/Trash Pumps

Tough against sand, mud and trash, the WEDA 04S and WEDA 08S sludge/trash pumps are designed with a vortex cast iron impeller and triple seal system. Particles and debris of up to 1 in. can go through the pump housing with minimal wear and it offers the same motor protection as the WEDA 04 and WEDA 08 drainage pumps.

The WEDA 04S features 0.5 horsepower (hp) with a weight of 22 lbs. (9.9 kg). The pump has a discharge of 2 in. with a maximum flow of 71 gpm, and 4.5 liters per second (l/sec). The WEDA 08S offers 1 hp and a weight of 29 lbs. (13 kg). With a discharge of 2 in., the maximum flow for the WEDA 08 is 84 gpm, and 5.3 l/sec. The WEDA 04S is 14.6 in. (37 cm) long compared to 16.4 in. (41.6 cm) for the WEDA 08S.
