Environmentally-friendly portable pump for high flows up to 11,000 GPM

November 10, 2009
The pumps range in size from 3-inch to 18-inch are designed for high flows to 11,000 gallons per minute, heads to 330 feet and is available diesel or electric-driven. These end-suction centrifugal pumps can handle solids up to 4-inch. The compressor-assisted dry priming system prevents blow-by – the pumpage, from discharging onto the ground, making this unit environmentally safe. The sturdy, weather resistant, sound attenuated canopy is also available as an option on the pumps and allows the pumps to operate at or below 70 dBa and provide a more secured, lockable unit. The durable construction and the highly efficient pump ends provide longer life and economical operations but most importantly lower fuel costs, according to the manufacturer.
