Editor-in-Chief Elisabeth Lisican showcases a handful of features to read in the April 2017 issue of Water & Wastes Digest.
Godwin Pumps, worldwide manufacturer and supplier of the Dri-Prime automatic self-priming pump, introduced two new Dri-Prime pumps to the water/wastewater market at the 78th Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition and Conference.
The two new Dri-Prime pump models, 4-in. CD103M and 6-in. CD160M, offer heads from 145 to 300 ft with 3-in. solids handling capabilities. The new pumps are used in various water/wastewater applications including municipal lift stations, process or storm water bypass pumping, API separator and clarifier cleaning and emptying and bypass pumping for sewer re-lining or pipe-bursting jobs.
Godwin Dri-Prime pumps prime and re-prime from dry to 28-ft of static suction lift and run dry without damage due to an oil bath mechanical seal design. Optional sound attenuated enclosures are available.
Also on display is the Godwin Dri-Prime Backup System for standby lift station applications. Providing independent power and pumping in one package, the Dri-Prime Backup System operates as an emergency backup pumping system to prevent spills caused by primary power, switch gear or sewage pump failures in a municipal lift station. In addition, the Godwin Dri-Prime Backup System also can be used for primary pump needs when the lift station undergoes routine maintenance and repairs.
