Aeration Pumps


The HIBLOW XP-80 linear diaphragm air pump is equivalent in airflow to the HP-80, but utilizes a “rare earth” neodymium magnet, which allows the unit to run on less than 60 watts of power – comparable to an incandescent light bulb. The aerator has a small footprint and weighs less than 10 pounds, allowing for cost efficient shipping. It takes up less space in a service truck and in protective enclosures — allowing for more air circulation to cool the pump. The neodymium magnet helps the pump maintain a low operating temperature, assisting with optimizing pump service life. 734-944-5032;

Kasco Marine Surface Aerators

Surface Aerators from Kasco Marine are easily installed with mooring ropes and designed to agitate high volumes of water. With continuous mixing action, water is constantly circulated through the unit to increase the amount of water introduced to air. This increases overall water quality and raises dissolved oxygen levels to the required standard before treated water is discharged. The units are designed for residential and commercial properties with minimal operator monitoring. Models are available in power options ranging from 1/2 to 5 hp with cord lengths up to 500 feet. Units are designed with a 360-degree top intake, allowing for greater flow and electrical efficiency, all while enabling use in shallow applications. 715-262-4488;

Chopper Pumps

Gorman-Rupp SFSC Pump

The SFSC Pump from Gorman-Rupp is an SF Series product equipped with Eradicator Plus solids reduction technology. These are the most aggressive in the SF Series product lineup and are designed for applications where nonwoven flushable wipes, trash bags, hair, industrial byproducts and agricultural wastes are present. All pumps are equipped with a heavy-duty continuous vane impeller. The pumpout vanes incorporated into the thick back shroud are designed to help prevent buildup of debris behind the impeller. The wear plate utilizes notches and grooves with an oversized lacerating tooth designed to cut and shred organic solids before they enter the pump. Pumps are available in 3-, 4- and 6-inch discharge sizes. 419-755-1011;

It has the same V-Slice cutter technology used in the Omnivore Series. 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 easy retrofit into existing systems. Compact factory-assembled systems are available in simplex and duplex versions: the ProVore 380 and ProVore 680. 800-543-2550;

Zoeller Pump 72 HD Series

Zoeller Pump’s 10 and 15 hp 72 HD Series is an expansion to its existing grinder product offering, now ranging from 1 to 15 hp. The units include a dual carbon ceramic shaft seal, moisture and thermal sensor, a buna-N gasket to protect the 3,450 rpm motor, and class F windings. Pumps are available in 208, 230, 460 or 575 volts using a three-phase connection. The 3- or 4-inch ANSI-flanged horizontal discharge allows for easy adaption to a variety of grinder or solids handling rail systems. Pumping performance ranges from 250 feet at shut-off and a maximum flow at 150 gpm at 50 feet TDH. Removable legs clear the bottom of the pump to allow debris to flow easier into the cutter assembly when used with a guide rail assembly. This assembly uses a 440 stainless steel with a Rockwell C hardness of 55-60 cutter and cutter plate in a scissor-like cutting motion that reduces solids down to 1/8 inch. 800-928-7867;
