Simplicity, precision balancing and accurate machining ensure long unit life, reduced maintenance costs and minimum power consumption.
Allegro Industries offers four models of dewatering and sludge pumps that provide continuous operation at low water levels and extended dry runs without overheating the motor. These portable, submergible pumps are excellent for manholes, vaults, construction sites, and all dewatering needs. The DC Submersible Dewatering Pump is a totally-enclosed unit. Watertight o-ring seals keep the pump's internal parts dry. It delivers up to 43 gpm for rapid dewatering and instant prime. It can operate on any 12 volt truck or automobile battery, and the 30 amp draw allows for one hour of operation without starting the engine.
The new PSL 5.0 Pump Station Level Controller from Greyline Instruments features redundant level sensing. It includes a non-contacting ultrasonic sensor, and users can also connect a loop-powered pressure sensor for redundant sensing in applications with foam or grease. The controller will continuously recalibrate the pressure sensor and automatically switch back and forth from ultrasonic to the pressure sensor as required. It is designed for sewage lift stations, wet wells and storage tanks.

The IX Series of direct-drive, digitally-controlled metering pumps from Iwaki America combine accuracy, reliability and flexibility into an energy-efficient design. An advanced liquid end and fixed stroke length design enable a high compression ratio throughout each stroke, resulting in fast priming with no gas-lock problems. Two models provide a maximum flow of 40 gph and a maximum pressure rating to 150 psi. A full turndown ratio of 750:1 enables only two models to handle many chemical metering requirements. Precise motor control coupled with an efficient check valve design creates accurate performance of +/-1% over the entire output range.
Skid pump system
Sodimate's mounted slurry system integrates a slurry tank, skid pumps and controls, and is pre-wired and ready to use, allowing for quick installation and start-up. Typical slurry tank fabrication material includes high-density polyethylene (HDPE), stainless steel or fiberglass, and volume can range from 130 to 500 gallons. Completely dust-free, the skid pump system is specifically fabricated to be used with dry hydrated lime, powdered activated carbon (PAC) and polymers.
Godwin Dri-Prime NC Series pumps with Flygt N-technology are engineered to deliver non-clog performance and improved energy efficiency. The NC150 pump (the 6-inch pump in the line) is a powerful yet compact pump with flow capabilities up to 1,767 gpm and discharge heads up to 195 ft. It features the company's Dri-Prime automatic self-priming system that primes and re-primes from dry up to 28 ft. without operator assistance or foot valve control. The close-coupled centrifugal pump can be customized with a diesel engine or electric motor, highway trailer or skid-mounted, or quiet enclosure. It is also available as a Godwin DBS for pump station backup.

Solids Handling Pumps
Zoeller Engineered Products offers a broad selection of submersible solids handling pumps in sizes from 1 to 100 hp. Their finned castings, oil-filled housings and non-overloading windings enable the motor to maintain a low operating temperature when facing the harshest of conditions. These pumps are available with a 2.5", 3.0" or 4.0" solids handling capacity and can use a semi-open, enclosed or vortex impeller. Discharge sizes range from 3" to 6". The pumps are available with standard or explosion proof motors, all having an inverter duty option.

Pump station manager
MultiTrode's MultiSmart is an intelligent Pump Station Manager that can help reduce energy consumption and operating costs. With out-of-the-box functionality designed for simplified deployment, the manager combines thousands of dollars in technology, components and engineering into one device. It features the best of PLCs, RTUs and pump controllers in a comprehensive, intuitive package. Pre-programmed logic developed from decades of real-world industry experience is designed to significantly reduce operating costs, decrease energy costs and consumption, and prevent failures, blockages and spills.
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" diameter impeller.

Submersible propeller pumps
Xylem's Flygt Submersible Propeller Pumps move large volumes of water within low to medium head applications. They are smaller than non-submersible offerings as the motor and hydraulics are integrated into one compact unit, resulting in smaller pumping stations that are less complex and thus more cost effective to build. Operating submerged, they take up less space while noise and motor cooling problems are eliminated.
