Solids handling pumps

Barnes Solids Handling SH Pumps have impellers engineered for clogging resistance and pumping efficiency. The combination of Inverter Duty Rated motors and steep performance curves make them ideal for variable speed operation. An external epoxy coating system provides corrosion resistance designed specifically for wet-well applications. Other key features include Plug-n-Play cord technology for easy maintenance and oil-lubricated bearings rated minimum 50,000 hours at 2 feet/second pipe velocity.

Split seals

A.W. Chesterton has developed advanced split mechanical seals for large size pumps that can eliminate wastewater and raw water leakage in pumps that were previously sealed with packing. Eliminating the process leakage stops the problems created by it – premature bearing and equipment failure, overall equipment and plant corrosion, biological hazards associated with wastewater, and the need to disassemble these large pumps to install new bearings and other damaged components. The seals have successfully sealed large water and wastewater pumps with shaft sizes ranging from 1" to 24".

Centrifugal pumps

Vanton's Sump-Gard® model SGK-2700 thermoplastic centrifugal pump handles flows to 1200 gpm at heads to 200 ft, making it ideal for fume scrubbers and other applications in which caustic and acidic chemicals are transferred. All wetted components are molded of solid polypropylene, PVDF or CPVC to eliminate chemical attack associated with pumping of aggressive chemicals while minimizing abrasion. The alloy shaft, which is isolated from fluid contact by a thick-sectioned thermoplastic sleeve, transfers torque from a 125 hp motor and can employ a balanced 14 in. diameter impeller.

Grinder pump stations

The E/One pressure sewer system is powered by the company's grinder pumps. The grinder pump station collects all of the wastewater from the home and grinds it into slurry. The wastewater is then pumped to a larger sewer main or directly to a wastewater treatment plant. E/One's W48 grinder pump stations offer 480 gallons of capacity. The stations are part of the company's W-Series of grinder pump stations, which feature an open wetwell design on the tank. The W48 is constructed from HDPE and is available with two, three or four grinder pumps. The stations are rated for 3500 to 7000 gpd, depending on the number of grinder pumps installed.

Effluent pump

The Goulds Pumps' Filtered Effluent Pumps (EB Blaster) are for use with on-site wastewater treatment, spray irrigation, drip systems, mound systems, and long distance pumping jobs. They are designed for pumping filtered effluent from processed septic systems only. The pump can be rebuilt in the field to like new condition with common tools and readily available spare parts. All metal parts are stainless steel in AISI types 301 and 304. Impellers and diffusers are constructed of glass filled polycarbonate or Noryl, engineered composites. Both materials are corrosion and effluent resistant.

Screw pumps

Schreiber offers both Open Flight and Tube Mounted Screw Pumps. The OFSP transports liquid in a concrete trough. A non-clog pump, it is typically installed at a 30o or 38o angle. It has a variable capacity at a constant speed up to its max. The TMSP transports liquid inside a stationary tube, simplifying design and eliminates the need for grouting. Pumps can be set at a fixed angle or supported by a hoist to vary the pump angle and for maintenance access.

Peristaltic pump

The Model 410 Peristaltic Pump from Solinst Canada is suited for water and vapor sampling from shallow wells or surface water. Compact, lightweight and water resistant, it has a durable metal case. One easy-access control enables reversible flow and various speeds, allowing high or low-flow sampling. Simply connect to a 12 vDC power source to operate.

Slurry pump

The heavy-duty Bredel SPX peristaltic hose pumps can handle a variety of harsh materials, such as abrasive lime slurries. Their machined hose is designed for long life even when pumping slurries that cause other pumps to fail. With flow-rates up to 350 gpm and pressures up to 232 psi the pumps are designed for continuous duty. Peristaltic hose pumps are virtually maintenance-free. The highly abrasive nature of lime slurries does not affect pump life.

Peristaltic pumps

Separating suspended solids from liquids before discharging to a sewer or water course can present a problem when materials won't settle quickly. Water treatment plants have overcome this obstacle by using Watson-Marlow peristaltic pumps in their flocculation process. Nothing but the tube touches the fluid, eliminating the risk of the pump contaminating the fluid or the fluid contaminating the pump. Up to eight different tube sizes may be used in one pump. The pumps are available in Manual, Auto, SCADA and PROFIBUS control.
