The well maintenance department of BPK Brunnen- und Pumpen-Service GmbH in Moers/Germany replaced a standard centrifugal pump that supplies water to three fountains in the Hilden town pond.

When it came to selecting the right pump, the decision was made in favour of the powerful FNC 80-160/110 pump with 11 kW, which achieves flow rates of up to 156 m³/h (50 Hz) and heads of up to 28 m (50 Hz). In addition to the required performance parameters, criteria such as high quality and durability and corrosion resistance were also decisive in the selection of the pump.

Another fountain in the Hilden city park is currently being equipped with a submersible pump from Franklin Electric, which achieves a delivery rate of up to 144 m³/h and a delivery head of up to 578 m.

The renovation of the fountains was part of an inner city project that also included the upgrading of the centrally located city park with its pond. The fountains of the water body does not only look beautiful and please visitors, but  also is important for the circulation and aeration of the water body.
