QED Environmental Systems Torpedo G1275 pumps

QED Environmental Systems’ Torpedo G1275 pumps are a series of large-body pumps designed for aggressive pumping applications. The pumps work by using a powerful stirring motion in the influent stream to allow slurries and solids to pass through. To prevent failure, the pumps are constructed of cast iron and stainless steel, and fitted with heavy-duty bearings and seals. The hardened, high-chrome impeller assembly can pass solids that would stall other pumps. An HDPE-encapsulated body, stainless steel water jacket and polymer power cable help the pumps resist corrosion. A 5 hp motor provides the torque required for pumping silt, slurry and solid contaminants. 734-995-2547;

Franklin Miller SUPER SHREDDER SS2400

The SUPER SHREDDER from Franklin Miller is an in-line disintegrator that reduces a variety of liquid borne solids with a unique, low headloss design. The unit features heavy-duty construction and provides effective operation in tough applications such as tar sands and dredging, as well as sewage and sludge waste and process lines. The shredder reduces solids to fine bits with a unique, high-flow, spherical rotor design.

DeZURIK APCO SmartCHECK pump control valves

APCO SmartCHECK pump control valves from DeZURIK are ideal for applications including raw sewage, wastewater, raw water, clean water or any fluid pumped through a pipeline. The APCO SmartCHECK is a single valve that combines the functionality of a full-featured electric motor-operated pump control valve with the best features of APCO’s premium CVS-6000 swing check valve. The valve has been engineered to control pressure surges during normal pump startups and shutdowns, and to close positively upon power failure, without the need for expensive hydraulic power units, accumulators and maintenance-intensive hydraulic controls. The unique SmartCHECK torque unit can be operated with any brand of electric motor operator. The torque unit allows normal function, but will automatically close upon power failure, preventing backflow. SmartCHECK valves produce low head loss, and speed adjustments control fluid acceleration and deceleration, minimizing pressure surges. 320-259-2000;
