Municipal applications for clear water, waste water, and grey water are met with assurance by Cornell pumps. We’ve been involved in municipal installations since the 1950s — with our pumps serving in both permanent installations and temporary/emergency fixes. Our new cutter pump is especially efficient in reducing waste water ragging, leading to greater uptime, and a reduction in maintenance costs. Our double volute designs, high heads of 800 feet, robust solids handling capabilities, and patented Cycloseal® design are appreciated by municipal water managers from Irvine, CA to Dubai, UAE.
On Cornell Municipal Pumps, Look for the distinctive appearance of the angular, muscular frame, to know it’s a high quality Cornell pump.
Clear Liquid Pumps
Cornell’s Clear Liquid pumps are known around the world as the most durable, most reliable, highest efficiency pumps in the industry. They can be found in a variety of applications in the Agricultural, Industrial, and Municipal markets and are available in Close-Coupled, SAE Engine Mounted, Horizontal, and Vertical Configurations.
Solids Handling Pumps
Cornell offers a wide range of solids handling pumps, from 1.25″ though 30″ discharge size, to handle the most difficult solids applications. Cornell’s solids handling pumps can be found in a wide range of applications in the Municipal, Agricultural, and Industrial markets; and available in a variety of mounting configurations including close-coupled, SAE engine, horizontal, and vertical mounted. Featuring enclosed, semi-open, and delta impellers, and a variety of construction materials, Cornell solids handling pumps operate up to 40,000 GPM.
The cutter pump was created to address the urgent need to reduce clogging due to ragging. With the increased use of ‘flushable’ materials and extraneous cleaning products, the issue of clogging, which leads to downtime, pump destruction, and pipe damage, has increased markedly. Useful in municipal, agricultural, and other markets, the cutters unique stationary and rotating blade design allows material to pass through the impeller that would tend to clog a non-cutter pump. The cutter costs a minimal amount of product efficiency and is specially designed to break up clogs and prevent ragging. The cutter is adjustable and made from special hardened metal to last in difficult service. The cutter impeller can be retrofitted on existing pumps, and won’t change the external pump dimensions.
Cornell’s popular self-priming series pumps are the most efficient in the industry. Combined with our patented-Cycloseal® back plate technology, these pumps are durable, powerful, and energy efficient.
Durable, reliable, and easy to maintain, the STX, STH, and STL self-priming pumps are an excellent option for many applications including waste water, slurry, and water transfer.
Cornell Submersible pumps maintain superb operating efficiencies and are coupled with premium efficient motors. All come standard with heavy wall volutes for extended life under abrasive service. Cornell’s auto-coupling system includes a cast iron discharge elbow, bronze guide claw flange, and Stainless Steel upper and intermediate guide rail brackets for high quality non-spark operation.
The basic design of the immersible pump/motor is a premium efficient, inverter-duty, P-Base or C-Face, totally enclosed, blower-cooled motor. The design prevents water infiltration along the shaft into the motor by utilizing a triple redundant sealing system, including a patented Hydroseal design. The immersible motor can withstand up to 30 feet of submergence depth for a 2 week period.
Cornell has been building Hydro Turbines for more than 50 years. Our Hydro Turbines can be found in Industrial, Municipal, and Agricultural power generation projects around the world. With our wide range of turbines you can generate power with heads as low as 55 feet and flows as low as 90 gallons per minute.
NSF/ANSI 61 Certification
Cornell Pumps boasts NSF/ANSI 61 / 372 certification on nearly two dozen of our clear liquid/potable water pumps.
Our clear liquids pumps can be used industrial or municipally in situations where water purity, for applications such as dirking water or food washing, are of concern.
