UK Construction Week 2017 - Kessel - Ecolift XL – Reliability & Efficiency – The Greener Solution that delivers peace of mind!

Kessel Ecolift XL - Setting Standards

The Kessel Ecolift XL uses the efficiency of the natural gradient during normal operation and only uses its pumps during times of backwater or flooding, pumping the building’s wastewater via a bypass directly into the surcharged sewer pipe. Reliable operation
In the event of backwater, the motor-driven backwater flaps close and provide maximum flood protection to the building. The pneumatic level sensor assures accurate pump operation and provides an additional back-up alarm. 



Ecolift XL is available with pumping capacities of 1.5 kilowatt to 4.5 kilowatt. In addition, KESSEL also offers solutions tailor-made to customer requirements. The hybrid lifting station can be used for free-standing set-up connected directly to the outlet of a grease separator for example, or for outdoor underground installation. Low-noise operation
Despite the mechanical design and insulation of traditional lifting stations they are still a constant source of noise since every liter of a building’s wastewater needs to be pumped out. In contrast, the Ecolift XL uses the natural gradient to drain waste from the building and only activates the pumps during backwater. This means that pumping operation noise only occurs in exceptional cases. This is an advantage not only for apartment blocks with basement apartments, but also for commercially or public used buildings such as offices, schools, hospitals and residential homes for the elderly.



Installation in an inspection chamber also possible
The Ecolift XL is designed to a high-quality standard, the polymer inspection chamber is suitable both for installation in the ground or in concrete. The chamber is resistant to groundwater up to 3 metres and can be built up to a height of five metres. The chamber is available with an access opening of 600 millimetres in diameter and now also in a new version with a diameter of 800 millimetres.
