Now Available: Vortex Series Pumps


Franklin Electric is pleased to announce the launch of the Pioneer Pump® Vortex SeriesTM Pumps. Vortex Series Pumps offer a unique pumping solution that eliminate costly and disruptive downtime by passing through the most challenging solids using a recessed impeller. These pumps are ideally suited for waste handling, sludges, industrial effluent, chemical processing, and other applications where fluid conditioning, macerating, or mix-prevention are unnecessary. This is accomplished using vortex technology, which saves time and money in the most punishing applications by eliminating internal wetted parts, like wear plates and chopper blades, that would otherwise have to be monitored, adjusted, and replaced. Heavy-duty cast iron casing construction, an oversized stainless-steel shaft, and a leak-proof run dry mechanical seal ensure maximum reliability and uptime.Vortexpump Withoutlet
