Lorentz has been using the power of the sun to pump water since 1993. KG ELECTRIC introduced these pumps to the southern African market in 2003, establishing a track record over the years, with many thousands of Lorentz pumps in the field.
We segment applications for solar water pumping into broadly three areas:
- Drinking Water - for people and livestock
- Irrigation - from small crops to large commercial farms
- Leisure - solar pool pumps, pond management and similar
The fist two applications are generally served by the Lorentz submersible range, and Leisure is covered by surface pumps.
The Lorentz submersible pumps are divided into a number of model ranges, starting from the small PS150C up to the large PSk range. Each range has a number of models - in this way we are able to optimally address the pumping parameters of individual applications, matching pump to client requirments, to obtain best efficiency and performance.
In general, the smaller pump ranges cover the drinking water applications, whereas the larger pumps are employed in irrigation applications, although there can of course be significant overlap, depending on client requirements.
