New Orleans, LA  --  Xylem Inc. (NYSE: XYL), a leading global water technology company focused on addressing the world's most challenging water issues, unveiled new additions to its Godwin dewatering portfolio on October 1, 2012 at WEFTEC. Xylem, which spun off from ITT Corporation last year, launched the Godwin Heidra NC Series in New Orleans.

The Godwin Heidra NC Series is the latest addition to Xylem's Godwin portfolio. Last year the company introduced NC pumps to the Godwin Dri-Prime centrifugal pump line, with patented Flygt N-technology and an innovative self-cleaning impeller.

Godwin Heidra 150NC pumps are self-contained hydraulic submersible pumps ready to go anywhere and operate in the toughest conditions. With Flygt N-technology, they offer the ability to pass stringy and fibrous solids through their impeller without clogging.

NC Series pumps are engineered to deliver sustained efficiency resulting in lower energy and fuel costs while reducing unplanned downtime. This makes the Godwin Heidra NC Series pump a best-in-class portable pump suitable for both sewage and clean water applications. The Heidra NC Series utilizes the same hydraulic power packs as other Godwin Heidra series pumps, for interchangeability between series.


  • Double mechanical seal in its own clean oil bath, which allows for indefinite dry running
  • Biodegradable hydraulic oil
  • Sustained efficiency Flygt N-technology for non-clog performance, sustained high efficiency and long-term energy/fuel savings
  • Hard-Iron™ (60 HRC) impeller and insert ring
  • Hydraulic motor circuit designed to allow automatic start and stopping without damage to submersible pump

One of the pumps in this series is the Godwin Heidra 150NC hydraulic submersible pump, an extremely powerful yet compact pump with flow capabilities to 1700 gpm and discharge heads to 185 feet of total dynamic head.

Grant Salstrom, Managing Director of Xylem's dewatering solutions business said, "We continually strive to surpass customer expectations. Constant innovations to the Godwin range of solutions, backed by our 24/7 customer service, allow us to remain a market-leading, practical solutions provider for our customers. Reliability is a key concern of our customers and it's at the core of our Godwin range."

At WEFTEC 2012, Xylem also announced that it will extend its TotalCare program to the Godwin range in the U.S. in 2013. TotalCare is Xylem's unique customer service solution, which includes efficiency audits and training. Godwin already offers true 24/7 service to all rental and sales customers and this integration will add proven features from TotalCare.
