Xylem's new Godwin NC150S Dri-Prime pump offers Isuzu Final Tier 4 engines as standard for US customers
Xylem says its new Godwin NC150S Dri-Prime pump, the first to be unveiled from the S Series of smart dewatering pumps, will offer Isuzu Final Tier 4 (FT4) engines as standard for customers in the US market.
Starting with the Godwin S Series, Xylem commits to offer only Final Tier 4 (FT4) engines that deliver high performance while significantly reducing carbon emissions.
The new Godwin pump, launched by Xylem at the Water Environment Federation’s Annual Technical Exhibition and Conference (WEFTEC) this week, is equipped with Isuzu’s 4LE2X industrial diesel engine, an advanced diesel engine that complies with the US Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) Final Tier 4 (FT4) requirements, and is said to have been shown to deliver significantly greater uptime and lower maintenance.
The company says the Godwin NC150S reduces total cost of ownership, with emissions cut by 90% and fuel consumption by 10% on average. In addition, a Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) is said to significantly reduce maintenance.
Kevin Snow, Godwin global product manager, said, “We first introduced FT4 engines on our Godwin pumps in 2014 and have thousands of hours of hands-on service and maintenance experience, meaning that Xylem is positioned to support customers as they transition to FT4 pumps.”
David Smith, industrial business development manager at Mack Boring & Parts, distributors of Isuzu engines, said: “Isuzu has a rich legacy in supplying cutting-edge industrial engines to partners all over the world and we are committed to continuously charging ahead in pursuit of reliability, durability, and eco-friendliness.
“As well as delivering high fuel efficiency, the Tier 4 compliant engine is covered by a five-year/5,000-hour warranty and only requires servicing approximately every 500 hours, reducing maintenance time and cost to customers.”
