The new Belzona® 1341 (Supermetalglide) protective coating can help reduce energy losses due to the effects of viscous drag and surface roughness accentuated by erosion-corrosion effects. Independent testing performed at the National Engineering Laboratory has shown the lining system can increase the efficiency of new pumps by as much as 6%. Case in point, the protective coating applied to the interior volute and impeller of a 1,000 hp Worthington 16LN35 water pump housed at a water supply facility in Des Moines, IA, resulted in increased wire-to-water efficiency of 7.2%.

Environment One’s new E/One Extreme Series grinder pumps are an improvement on the 2000 Series, providing greater total dynamic head (185 feet vs. 138 feet) and longer mean times between service calls. The pumps are available now in prepackaged Wetwell/Drywell; Wetwell; Indoor; and Gatorgrinder stations. The Extreme pumps also can be configured for aftermarket upgrades. The company’s grinder pump station collects all of the wastewater from a home, grinds up any solids, and then moves the effluent through small-diameter (1¼" to 4") pipe to treatment.

Sealing material

GoreTM GFO® packing fiber from the Sealant Technology Group of W. L. Gore & Associates is a composite material designed specifically for use as a compression packing for sealing shafts on high-speed pumps, mixers, agitators, and any other equipment with rotating or reciprocating shafts. The material doesn’t get hard or brittle, thus minimizing shaft wear. Its excellent lubricity and high thermal conductivity keep it cool-running, even after extended periods of continuous use.

Seepex has a new cake pump that operates at higher volumetric efficiencies and has fewer wearing parts, compared to other PC pumps and piston pumps. The new BTH and BTHE pumps have a concentrically rotating auger that imparts substantially more shear to thixotropic sludge. This reduces the apparent viscosity and improves volumetric efficiencies. Most PC pumps have an auger that is attached to a coupling rod that rotates in a conical movement, due to the eccentric action of the PC pump rotor on the discharge end of the auger.

Dry prime pumps

Sewage, debris and chemical discharge have always been an unfortunate byproduct of the dewatering industry. Thompson Pump has a solution in the Enviroprime® system for its dry prime, compressor-assisted pumps in both the multi-purpose trash pump (HTC) and the wet prime open trash sewage pump (TSC). The priming system prevents blowby - sewage, debris and chemicals - from discharging onto the ground, keeping the surrounding environment clean and safe.
