Allegro Industries Dewatering and Sludge Pumps

June 2012, Vol. 67 No. 6

Five models of Dewatering and Sludge Pumps offer continuous operation at low water levels and extended dry runs without overheating the motor. These portable, submergible pumps are excellent for manholes, vaults, construction sites and all dewatering needs.

The new DC Submersible Dewatering Pump is a totally enclosed, submersible dewatering unit. Watertight o-ring seals keep pump’s internal parts completely dry and it delivers up to 43 gallons per minute for rapid dewatering and instant prime. It can operate on any 12 volt truck or automobile battery, and the low 30 AMP draw allows for an hour of operation without starting the engine.

Additional pump models and hoses feature fire-hose-style quick-connect fittings, and a V-ring to protect the shaft seal from abrasives. They include a Deluxe Pump with 60-foot shut off head and a 110 volt, single-phase motor. A standard model offers easy disassembly with one 12mm box/socket wrench. The Low Water Pump is perfect for civil engineering sites or utility pits where all water must be drained. It pumps down to 3/16-inch. The Sludge Pump is excellent for standing water containing sand, solids leaves or debris at a max of 50 gallons per minute. 800.622.3530, allegrosafety.com
