Two new Franklin pump series for water applications

Franklin Electric Co., a manufacturer of complete pumping systems, will display two new pumping innovations at the WWETT 2016 Exhibition and Conference.

The new FPS IGPH Series of high head grinder pumps are engineered for the tough demands of higher head conditions found in many low pressure sewage transfer applications.

Available in an automatic or manual version, the FPS IGPH Series utilises a proven and patented cutter system with tight clearances for high-efficiency grinding at 414,000 cuts per minute.

These new units incorporate two non-clogging impeller stages for efficient pumping of sewage slurries with a shut-off head of 200ft.

With only 16 full-load amps at minimum head requirements of 100ft, the units can replace other grinders that fail to meet current application needs.

The submersible centrifugal FPS NC Series non-clog pumps meet challenging water transfer needs in commercial, residential, and industrial applications.

Manufactured in 3” and 4” 125# ANSI flange discharge connections, they are available in 3, 5, 7.5, and 10hp models with heads up to 66ft and flows up to 610gpm.

Non-clog pumps can pass up to 3” solids, retrofit easily to any standard rail system, and contain replaceable internal components for optimal maintenance.

Ductile iron casted impellers provide added corrosion resistance and better handle rigid debris versus cast iron versions.

A fluoroelastomer motor enclosure sealing system has improved chemical and temperature resistance, the double-row ball lower bearing offers better loading and wear characteristics, and a unique field adjustable wear plate offers optimum performance.

Franklin will be presenting the new pumps at booth 2442.
