One of the key issues is when a Durr VSA 300 S Suction Unit overheats during long procedures. Please bear in mind this can be caused by:


– Blocked pipework or filters (don’t forget the in-line yellow filter by the inlet to the pump)

– Incorrect maintenance – make sure air is allowed through when water flushed through, use the Durr products properly (Orotol and MD555)

– Service overdue.

– Parts of debris on the main impellor – covered by overhaul.

– Cooling fan not operating correctly.

– Damaged machine – main stem out of alignment.


The list above gives you some insight into the some of the reasons why your pump may not be running satisfactorily,  however you may find you require further support.
