Pump Type Description

SUMP PUMPS

                  

Generally referred to as drainage or clear water sump pumps.  Most dewatering pumps have screens which prevent the solids from entering the pump.  These pumps are used to pump ground water out to grade or to a storm sewer.

 

EFFLUENT PUMPS

        

Effluent pumps are rated for use in sanitary sump drainage applications or clear water applications where higher gpm output is required.  When pumping grey water, pumps must be capable of passing limited amounts of 1/2” or 3/4“ solids.

 

SEWAGE PUMPS

                          

Sewage pumps are used in sanitary pumping applications where toilets are being used.  These pumps are capable of passing 2" solids.  Sewage pumps can also be used in clear water applications where higher gpm output is required. 

 

GRINDER PUMPS

                     

Grinder pumps are sewage handling pumps that actually, chop, grind and shred the sewage and reduce it to a slurry.  Sewage grinder pumps are capable of pumping this slurry through  smaller diameter pipe, as small as 1-1/4” and for much higher and longer distances than sewage handling pumps.

 

CUTTER/CHOPPER PUMPS

                    

Cutter pumps are very powerful sewage handling pumps that cut and  pass the solid.  Utilizing a Tungsten Carbide tipped impeller and a High Chrome Iron Cutter Plate, cutter pumps will solve the most demanding sewage and wastewater applications. As the solids pass through the cutter plate, they are cut into pieces and the deep vane impeller passes them along.

 

BATTERY OPERATED PUMPS

                  

Emergency back-up pumps for taking over during power or primary pump failure.
