A Quick Guide to Trash Pumps

Some of you may have heard this term and some may not: trash pumps. These pumps are designed for dewatering applications and are portable. These kind of pumps have the capability of moving water with solids in it such as twigs, sludge, sand, leaves and mud. Most trash pumps are portable versions of heavy duty centrifugal pumps.

How Trash Pumps are Different from Standard Pumps

A Quick Guide to Trash Pumps

The impeller veins are deeper and the discharge openings are much larger than similar pumps that are not designed to be trash pumps. Consequently, these pumps are able to move fluids with solids that would clog up standard centrifugal pumps. Not only can they move fluids containing too many solids for other pumps, they can also move them at a high rate of speed.

While many pumps grind up the solid materials that enter the pump, trash pumps do not. In addition to the deep impeller veins and large discharge openings, these pumps feature a full pump housing. These pumps can be made from a variety of materials, including: cast iron, stainless steel, steel and aluminum. Roll cages are also common standard equipment on most trash pumps.

There’s another variation called a semi trash pump, which does not have as large of a discharge opening as a trash pump. Due to the smaller opening, they cannot handle larger solids, nor can they handle a high density of solids.

These kind of pumps are the pump of choice for rigorous pumping large or highly concentrated solids, especially on a daily basis.

Some manufacturers do not always differentiate between trash pumps and semi trash pumps, so it is important to work with a company that provides comprehensive customer service.

A strainer is often used in addition to a hose at the inlet of these pumps to keep out solids that are too large for the pump to process.

Grundfos Vertical Multistage Pumps

We import a wide range of pumps into Australia from some of the best pump manufacturers in the world. One of those is Grundfos. We would like to tell you about Grundfos Vertical Multistage Pumps.

Grundfos CRI, and CRN Vertical Multistage Pumps

The CRI and CRN series of Grundfos pumps are vertical multistage pumps. The feature and inline design that makes them appropriate for a specific set of circumstances: a one-pipe, horizontal system in which the discharge and suction ports have identical pipe dimensions and are located in the same horizontal plane. This design allows the pipe work and pump design to exist in a more compact space.

The pressure and flow demands of the media being moved determine how many stages and what pump sizes you will need for the job. Grundfos CRI and CRN pumps are used for many applications, including the pumping of chemicals and the pumping of potable water. This versatility allows these Grundfos pumps to be used in a wide variety of applications in which the material and pump performance must be perfectly matched.

Grundfos CRI & CRN Series pumps contain two basic components: the pump and the motor. Grundfos uses heavy duty Grundfos motors for these pumps that are specific for each individual pump.

The pump unit features a top, an outer sleeve, connectors and other parts that are built to optimise hydraulics. The entire CR series is available in different materials specific to the media for which they will be used.

Grundfos CR Pumps: an Overview

The CR pump is a vertical multistage centrifugal pump that is non self-priming. Each CR pump consists of a pump head and a base. The outer sleeve and the chamber stack are connected between the base and the pump head by staybolts. The discharge and suction ports are on the same level or “inline,” connected to the base. The shafts are mechanically sealed by a maintenance-free cartridge.

All of the pumps are powered by standard Grundfos C Face, NEMA, 2-pole, heavy duty motors. Each pump has a specified motor.
