Orenco Systems Biotube ProPak
Biotube ProPak pump packages from Orenco Systems are complete and ready to install. They are used for filtering and pumping effluent from single- or dual-compartment septic tanks to gravity or pressurized discharge points. Pump vault technology eliminates the need for a separate dosing tank. Packages include a Biotube filter cartridge, which filters up to two-thirds of solids, so only liquid from the tank’s clear zone is pumped. Filters are easy to remove and clean without pulling the pump vault. All components are designed to be quickly installed and easily maintained. The PF Series high-head effluent pump is field serviceable and field repairable, and pump controls are designed for specific packages. Multiple models are available. ProPak Select software is designed to provide fast, error-free hydraulic calculations and generate system curves. 800-348-9843;

Pioneer Pump Vortex Series
Pioneer Pump Vortex Series pumps eliminate downtime by passing through the most challenging solids using a recessed impeller. The pumps are suited for waste handling, sludges, industrial effluent, chemical processing and other applications where fluid conditioning, macerating or mix-prevention are unnecessary. This is accomplished using vortex technology, which eliminates internal wetted parts, like wear plates and chopper blades, that would otherwise have to be monitored, adjusted and replaced. Heavy-duty cast iron casing construction, an oversized stainless steel shaft and a leakproof run-dry mechanical seal ensure reliability. A comprehensive range of electric and diesel packaging options are offered for fixed and portable installations and can be fitted with the Pioneer Prime vac-assist system for suction lift applications. They are available in 4-by-4, 6-by-6 and 8-by-8 sizes and cover flow rates up to 3,600 gpm and heads up to 150 feet. 503-266-4115;

The pump is designed with a 3,450 rpm oil-filled permanent split-capacitor motor and has an amp rating of 6.6 for 115 volts, a rugged cast iron housing and volute equipped with a cast iron vortex impeller capable of passing 3/4-inch-diameter solids. The stainless steel shaft is supported by two single-row, oil-lubricated ball bearings. The shaft seal is an inboard design with a secondary Exclusion V seal. It has a 20-foot UL/CSA-listed power cable suitable for submersible service and fitted with a three-prong plug.

Liberty Pumps ProVore  
The ProVore grinder from Liberty Pumps is designed for use in applications where the addition of a bathroom or other fixtures below sewer lines requires pumping. It has the same V-Slice cutter technology used in the Omnivore series, brought down to a more cost-effective level. Powered by a 1 hp motor, this smaller grinder is designed to operate on a standard 115- or 230-volt circuit, requiring only a 20-amp breaker. No special wiring is needed. The pump comes with a 2-inch vertical-style discharge and a standard leg pattern matching the LE-Series. This allows for an easy retrofit into existing systems. Compact factory-assembled systems are available in both simplex and duplex versions: the ProVore 380 and ProVore 680. 800-543-2550;

Pentair V2 Series
The V2 Series grinder from Pentair is designed with computational fluid dynamics software and has a volute and impeller design that allows shut-off heads up to 185 feet with a single-stage centrifugal pump. This design gives operators the flexibility to change between the standard, high-head and high-flow design by swapping the impeller and cutter plate, simplifying maintenance and reducing service parts inventory for low-pressure sewage system projects. It is available with an optional quick-disconnect cord for easier servicing in the field, double row bearings to absorb axial and radial loads, and an oil-filled motor for cooler operating temperatures and longer life. 855-274-8948;

Goulds Water Technology, a Xylem brand, VTX Series
VTX Series submersible pumps from Goulds Water Technology, a Xylem brand, are a durable line of vortex sewage pumps with a clog-resistant impeller designed to handle the stringy material often found in today’s residential wastewater stream. More effective than a traditional two-vane impeller, the recessed vortex impeller creates a whirlpool of pressure, pulling solids through the system without touching the vanes of the impeller, minimizing clogging and allowing fibrous materials to pass through the system while handling solids up to 2 inches in diameter. The pumps are built with a cast iron casing and a corrosion-resistant, stainless steel shaft and fasteners. They are field serviceable with an easily accessible dry cap compartment to save time and costs on service calls. The series is available in 0.5, 0.75, 1, 1.5 and 2 hp, with pumping capabilities up to 208 gpm. 866-325-4210;
