Head start for Atlas Copco Atlas Copco has launched two new PAS dewatering surface pumps,

which make use of proprietary 'HardHat' technology. Hardhat is the brand name for polymer that is resistant to corrosion,

extreme temperatures and harsh operating environments, which means the pumps are relatively maintenance free. Furthermore, the canopy is resistant to discoloration and the HardHat doors can even be painted in any colour, as per customer requirements. The Stage V PAS 100 and PAS

150 pumps are easy to move around a site and can provide continuous operation 24 hours a day. The pumps feature an advanced PW series control panel, so operators have total control over the application. Atlas Copco’s 'FleetLink' telematic system is an additional bonus. Other highlights include mechanical shaft seals set in an oil bath,

which enables dry running without damage. Meanwhile, a semi-open impeller enables the pumps to handle solids of various sizes without the risk of clogging. The pumps are available in three variations – standalone, with a

galvanised undercarriage or a skid.
