-Memories from the 2018 West Japan torrential rain.-
In an area of sustained heavy precipitation, FLOOD BUSTER
operated continuously for 59 hours, discharging
approximately 78,000 tons.
As flooding increases nationwide due to climate change, we
are supporting the safety and security of the community.

FLOOD BUSTER is the first in the world to be equipped with an "air-water mixed operation" that operates while sucking air and water.
By automatically changing between three operation states, it prevents "chattering" that can cause equipment damage due to repeated starting and stopping.
Different pumps have different operational water levels, which can have a significant impact on the tolerance for risk of flood.
FLOOD BUSTER features the ability to start up at lower water levels than conventional pumps.
This allows the system to cope with a sudden rise in water level with enough margin till overflow.
Another strength of FLOOD BUSTER is that it continues to operate even when the water level has dropped at pump mouth.
Sufficient storage capacity can be secured by draining water during a temporary decrease in rainfall.
FLOOD BUSTER keep the water level low at all times, minimizing the risk of flood damage by heavy rains.
Conventional pumps cannot start operation until a certain water level is reached. FLOOD BUSTER can start to operate at any water levels, allowing it to operate with a margin of safety even in the event of a sudden rise in water level.
FLOOD BUSTER do not start and stop repeatedly, thus minimizing the load on the equipment. The risk of failure is also reduced compared to conventional pumps that repeatedly start and stop with each water level fluctuation.
Once switched on, the system automatically maintains optimal conditions, eliminating the need for human intervention.
In addition to "Pump Gate Type" and "Stationary Type", we offer flexible customization to meet local challenges.
Pumping station with pumps installed underground
By installing it under the road, no above-ground land is required.
Pumping station with no pier
The pumping station can be even more compact than the pump gate type without a gate post, and can be installed in a more landscape-oriented manner by utilizing the upper space.
Pumping station that includes a pump station and a reservoir.
The drainage of rainwater by FLOOD BUSTER and the temporary storage of rainwater by regulating reservoirs provide more effective flood control measures than pump stations by themselves.
Pump gate type and stationary type installed
While ensuring the natural flow of the existing waterway, the reduction of drainage capacity during construction can be minimized by installing a stationary type next to the existing waterway in advan…
Pumping station with pumps installed directly on the wall
This model is integrated with a concrete wall or other structure. This type is selected when it is not necessary to integrate the gate.
Pump and gate in one unit
By installing directly within an existing waterway, it can prevent backflow from the main river and eliminate internal water without the need to acquire a large site such as conventional pumping stati…
