Fairbanks Nijhuis vertical solids-handling pumps have over 100 years of proven experience in the pumping of solids, slurries, sludge, pulp, trash, sewage and grit. These pumps are specifically designed to pass solids, trash and long stringy materials. more
  • Fairbanks Nijhuis vertical solids-handling pumps have over 100 years of proven experience in the pumping of solids, slurries, sludge, pulp, trash, sewage and grit. These pumps are specifically designed to pass solids, trash and long stringy materials. more
  • The 7600 Series pump is a multistage, horizontal, radially split pump for high-pressure service. With as many as 30% to 50% fewer stages than the competition, repairs are less costly and can be accomplished in the field. Its higher efficiencies allow for the use of smaller motors and less power consumption-another operational savings for the user. Fewer stages mean a shorter pump taking up less... more
  • The protection of life and property is critical in all areas of industry, from manufacturing facilities to power plants, and airports to offshore platforms. Fairbanks Nijhuis specializes in custom fire pump packages to address the specialized requirements of all these applications. To design an effective fire pump configuration, it is necessary to be familiar with the system as a whole: the... more
  • In order to achieve optimal system efficiency, specialized pumps are needed among the various steps of the desalination process. The system design must assure uninterrupted flows and deal effectively with the corrosive and aggressive nature of seawater. Since each desalination plant has specific design characteristics, Fairbanks Nijhuis appropriates its pump design to deliver the specific... more
  • As natives of countries that for centuries have wrestled with the sea, Fairbanks Nijhuis has built up a special knowledge of flood control, land reclamation, drainage and irrigation. Pumping stations are a vital part in the complicated system of measures preventing floods and in drainage and irrigation applications. Customers of Fairbanks Nijhuis benefit from its experience in this highly... more
  • Wastewater and sewage must be collected and then transported to wastewater treatment plants for processing. Collection and lift pumping stations are used to overcome gravity in order to boost the wastewater through the collection system. These collection/lift stations may consist of either dry-pit or submersible solids-handling pumps. Fairbanks Nijhuis has broad ranges of both pump designs, which... more
  • Municipal and industrial wastewater needs to be treated to keep the environment healthy. With a growing population, the demand for wastewater treatment plants is increasing, and therefore, the demand for pumps also increases. Pumps of Fairbanks Nijhuis can be found in a multitude of municipal sewage treatment plant applications around the globe, ranging from raw sewage influent and return... more
  • Treatment of wastewater is imperative in any society to keep water sources from being contaminated. Wastewater treatment plants come in many shapes and sizes, but all of them require rugged heavy-duty solids-handling pumps to move the wastewater through the treatment process. Whether it be head works pumps introducing the wastewater into the plant, return activated sludge pumps, waste activated... more
  • Once water has been treated to a potable condition, it must be distributed to consumers. Pumping stations are used to transport and boost clean water throughout distribution systems to provide potable water at desired pressures. Additionally, water booster stations are utilized in “reuse” water systems where the water is not for human consumption, but rather used to irrigate parks, recreational... more
  • Water availability is of major importance for natural, human and industrial use. Fairbanks Nijhuis provides pumps to help with the distribution of water with minimum power consumption and highest equipment availability rate, which results in a low total cost of ownership. more
  • Seawater and freshwater are usually the sources for water supplies. Fairbanks Nijhuis delivers suitable pump solutions that draw the water from these sources and pump it into the applicable system. In addition, the corrosive nature of seawater, in all its variations, requires products that are durable. Fairbanks Nijhuis has the specific knowledge for selecting pump materials that have appropriate... more
  • The local availability of potable water and protection against floodwater is vitally important for every individual, company and country. This is where the pumps of Fairbanks Nijhuis fulfill an important role: water transport from wet to dry areas, protection against floods and the ability process water to make it potable. Fairbanks Nijhuis offers innovative pump design and focuses on the pumping... more
  • Clean, potable water is the lifeblood of every community. Without clean water, populations must endure hardships such as waterborne diseases. Water treatment plants process water from the ground, lakes, streams, rivers, etc., and treat it to a potable state. Fairbanks Nijhuis offers a large stable of pump designs used throughout water treatment plants, including vertical turbine and vertical... more
