Atlas Copco
WEDA electric submersible pumps will make their debut on the American market with a new range for professional users. The new additions to the range are 1 hp and under, C-UL-US approved, 60 Hz single-phase drainage, sludge and residual pumps. They come in two voltage variants, 115 V and 230 V, and join the 50 Hz range. WEDA electric submersible pumps are now available in a 50Hz and a 60Hz version. The pumps feature a small, lightweight and high efficiency motor and their triple shaft seal design ensures reliability. Each model is equipped with a motor protection that automatically stops the pump in case of either overheating or overload/over-current. The pump automatically restarts after cooling down. 800.732.6762, atlascopco.us

Global Pump/Mersino
The model 6GSTAP (Standard Trash Auto Prime) is capable of maximum flows of 2,750 GPM and maximum total head of 165 feet while handling solids up to three inches in diameter. The standard 6GSTAP is powered by a water-cooled, 4-cylinder diesel engine. Alternative drives are available, including other diesel engines or electric motor options. A compressor-fed, venture priming system provides rapid, reliable priming. A mechanical seal with biodegradable glycol quench allows the pump to start and run dry. In addition, a standard engine control panel provides preset emergency shutdown protection and allows the addition of automatic level control. 866.360-PUMP, globalpump.com, mersino.com

Rain for Rent
The portable, centrifugal 24-inch DV600c pump from Rain for Rent is the largest high-flow portable pump available for rent or sale in the United States. With a flow rate up to 28,000 GPM, the DV600c pump is perfect for large pumping projects. This pump produces 96-foot head, suction lift up to 28 feet, and handles solids up to 5.25 inches. With a footprint of 170 square feet, smaller than some lower volume pumps, the DV600c can be easily transported by truck. A 430 gallon integral fuel cell allows for 22 hour run time. 800.742.7246, rainforrent.com
