New self-priming pumps feature optional external flush

By Chemical Engineering |

Vertiflo Pump

The Series 2100 self-priming centrifugal pump (photo) is well suited for handling solids and waste, due to its easy impeller access for clearing debris. The pump has an oversized, tapered bore and a self-flushing seal chamber. It also has what is said to be the industry’s first optional external flush, resulting in extended seal life. Series 2100 pumps can handle flow capacities up to 1,300 gal/min and heads up to 112 ft. The pumps are available in 3-, 4-. and 6-in. sizes. The Series 2100 is suitable for a wide range of applications, including: liquids entrained with solids, pulp-and-paper processing, mining, raw sewage, sludge, slurries and wastewater. — Vertiflo Pump Co., Cincinnati, Ohio
