Dewatering pump puts power in portable package

ITT Flygt has introduced a small, portable pump for dewatering ditches, manholes, basements, small ponds and construction sites. The Ready 12 pump offers 1.4 horsepower, weighs just 25 pounds and has a diameter of just 7 1/4 inches. With its 2-inch discharge, the pump features an abrasion-resistant polyurethane impeller, a non-corrosive, stainless steel motor housing and shaft and a synthetic body material enabling it to pump liquids ranging in pH from 3 to 9. The pump’s two independent mechanical seals run in a non-toxic lubricant and the abrasion-resistant silicon carbide seal faces are designed for long life and minimum wear.
