Grundfos DPK

Grundfos-DPK are Submersible pumps for dewatering and draining applications



Grundfos-DPK-ModularGrundfos DWK and DPK are submersible pumps designed for dewatering and drainage applications. The cast-iron construction and the hydraulic design contribute durability and high efficiency.

The differences between the DWK and DPK pump ranges lie in the discharge arrangement and the installation type.

The DWK is designed with a top discharge pipe and suction strainer, and is thus more suitable for temporary installation, whereas the DPK has a side discharge and a ring-stand or auto coupling (as accessories), and is suitable for permanent installations.





General description

To ensure reliable and optimum operation, Grundfos
drainage pumps, type DPK, are designed with two
types of impeller:
• 0.75 – 15 kW models have semi-open impeller
• 19 and 22 kW models have closed impeller.
DPK pumps are used for removal of surface and
underground water in small and medium systems



DWK/DPK are excellent pumps for dewatering and draining applications. The combination of compact design with high-pressure capability makes the pumps suitable for use in pits, whether for temporary or fixed installation. The installation design options provide the flexibility needed to cover many needs. Applications include:

  • Construction sites
  • Excavations
  • Tunnels
  • Fish ponds
  • Drainage pits.


Operating conditions

The DPK pump range is suitable for two operating
• continuous, submerged operation, S1, with min.
liquid level above the pump
• intermittent operation, S3, with the pump partly
