Honda consolidates pump lineup
Honda Power Equipment’s WB Series water pumps will replace the outgoing WN, WP and WD general-purpose pumps. Honda GX160 (5.5 horsepower) and GX120 (4.5 horsepower) overhead-valve engines power the WB30 and WB20 pumps, respectively. The new pumps have heavy-duty, full-frame protection, a rigid-mounted cast iron pump volute and an abrasion-resistant, silicone-carbide mechanical seal. The WB30 has a maximum discharge capacity of 275 gallons per minute and a maximum head of 83 feet, while the WB20 is able to discharge up to 153 gpm with a maximum head of 94 feet.

Move high volumes of trash water4
Subaru Robin trash pumps combine a powerful engine, heavy-duty construction and reliable performance to move high volumes of trash water without clogging the pump. The centrifugal-type pumps are available in models with 2-, 3- and 4-inch discharge outlets. A Subaru Robin overhead-cam or overhead-valve gasoline engine powers each model. The 2-inch PKX201T is powered by a 6-horsepower, overhead-cam engine and offers a delivery volume of 185 gallons per minute. The 3-inch PTV305T has an 8.5-horsepower, overhead-valve engine with a delivery volume of 343 gpm. The 2-inch model can handle solid debris up to 1/4 inch, and the 3- and 4-inch models can handle solid debris up to 1 1/4 inches.

Godwin introduces Dri-Prime diesel pump model
Godwin Pumps has added a new model to its Dri-Prime diesel pump line, the 6-inch CD160M. The portable pump offers both elevated heads and solids handling capabilities, achieving total dynamic heads to 260 feet. It handles up to 3-inch solids without sacrificing pumping capacity and manages flows up to 1,900 gallons per minute. The model is an automatic self-priming pump with dry running capabilities. It can be ordered with a sound-attenuated enclosure to minimize noise.

An answer to high heads and lifts4
Thompson Pump’s hydraulic power units and submersible pump ends offer capabilities when high heads or high lifts become a factor on jobsites. The submersible pump end eliminates suction lift limitations, allowing pumping in deep excavations, manholes, open pits, quarries or mines. These variable- speed and flow, hydraulically driven pumps handle solids up to 4.25 inches and flows up to 7,200 gallons per minute. They pump efficiently at heads up to 150 feet. Designed to run dry without damaging components, the pumps are constructed from heavy-duty cast iron and steel.

Contractor pumps redesigned
ITT Flygt has redesigned its Ready line of contractor pumps and added the Ready 8S trash pump. The pump line is made of stainless steel and synthetic materials and is capable of handling abrasive and corrosive liquids. The Ready 8S can handle water containing sand, gravel and debris with particle sizes up to 11/2 inches. Other units in the line, the Ready 4 and Ready 8, are compact submersible pumps designed for dewatering construction sites, manhole drainage and similar applications.

Reduce operator maintenance costs4
Rain for Rent’s DV 150i pump is specifically designed to reduce operator maintenance costs for bypass and dewatering projects. The fuel-efficient pump can handle solids up to 3 inches, flows up to 2,600 gallons per minute and heads up to 195 feet. Mounted on galvanized trailers to protect against rust and corrosion, the equipment has a maintenance-free surface.

Flow rates up to 2,850 gallons per minute
The PA6C60-4045T-ESP from Gorman-Rupp has flow rates up to 2,850 gallons per minute, heads up to 200 feet and can handle 3-inch solids. It can run dry indefinitely with no damage. The unit’s environmental containment base contains all fuel and engine liquids that could otherwise leak directly onto the ground during an accident. The model is designed for sewer bypass pumping or applications that require sound attenuation.

Pump requires no pressure accumulator4
The Rice 11-gallon-per-minute Hydro DPH-3B is an advanced triple-diaphragm pump designed for smooth and quiet operation. The 550-psi pump requires no pressure accumulator and allows for the handling of up to a 10-percent chlorine solution directly through the pump, which can also be run dry without damage. The pump comes with an inlet hose assembly and 8-inch high-pressure outlet hose.

Available in 4- to 12-inch models
Griffin Pump & Equipment’s variable use trash pumps come in 4- to 12-inch models and have fully automatic dry-priming and dry-running capabilities. The models also operate efficiently under intermittent flow conditions. The pumps are capable of handling flow up to 5,500 gallons per minute and head conditions up to 200 feet. They automatically prime and re-prime at suction lifts of 25 feet and greater, and the impellers can handle solids up to 3 inches and larger. The pumps come in diesel or electric models with an integral fuel tank designed for 24-hour operation.
