KPL Axial Flow Propeller Pump - flood control



The KPL axial-flow propeller pump is designed for high flow at low head.

With a flow capacity of up to 700 m3/min at a head of up to 9 m, the Grundfos KPL axial-flow propeller pump is ideal for flood control as well as other applications where large volumes of water are to be moved.

Each KPL pump is individually engineered to suit your requirements, ensuring cost-efficient performance. For optimum results, contact Grundfos during your planning stages; that allows us to consider aspects such as pumping station design, pump selection, future requirements, and the total life cycle costs.
