Other features include a Hard-Iron (60 HRC) impeller and insert ring; dry-running high-pressure oil bath mechanical seal with highly abrasion-resistant silicon carbide faces; and close-coupled centrifugal pump mounted to a diesel engine or electric motor for easy pumpend or engine/motor changeover in the field. 856.467.3636, godwinpumps.com

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. 800.622.3530, allegrosafety.com
