High output pump with low energy use

HIGH pressure, high flow and low energy use are claimed for a dry prime, solids handling pump.

The Cornell Pump Redi-Prime unit is capable of dry priming because of its diaphragm vacuum system, which operates in conjunction with a positive sealing float.

All Redi-Prime models come with Cornells Cycloseal shaft sealing design. This comprises a dished backplate which works with the impeller backvanes to cut pressure and wear around the pumps seal.

The pumps come in 10cm (4in) to 30cm (12in) sizes with flows up to 1000cu m/hour (35,300cu ft/hour) and heads up to 70m (230ft). Prices from £11,625 (01284-706922).
