WEDA Small Range Pumps

Atlas Copco has introduced a small range of WEDA pumps to provide fast and efficient dewatering. In addition to the original nine pumps, the WEDA04 and WEDA08 provide drainage pumping, with the WEDA08S for sludge pumping and the WEDA04B for low-suction pumping. The WEDA04 drainage pump is equipped with a 400-watt electric motor, while the WEDA08 has a 750-watt electric motor. With a 400-watt electric motor, the WEDA04B residual pump has the ability to pump down to one millimeter of water. The WEDA08S sludge pump is designed for difficult sand and mud applications.

A pneumatic saw and track system that can be attached to concrete pilings to even off the tops and casings or remove old piles in one piece to simplify reprocessing is available from ESCO Tool. The ESCO APS-438 Concrete Piling Saw features a 14-inch fiberglass reinforced blade that rapidly cuts concrete up to five inches thick and is ideal for evening off the tops of piles up to 60 inches in diameter and for cutting casings. Fully supported on a trolley that rolls along an easy-to-install FlexTrack system, this air-powered saw speeds pile cutting and minimizes operator fatigue.
