Pumps And Dewatering Equipment: Equipment Spotlight

Pumps and dewatering equipment from Xylem, Holland Pump, Grindex Pumps, Atlas Copco, Rain for Rent, Gorman-Rupp, Thompson Pump & Mfg. and Griffin Pump.

A new powerful and compact Godwin Vac-Prime is a highly efficient, automatic, self-priming dewatering solution ideally suited to well-pointing. As a result of its compact size, Xylem’s Godwin Vac-Prime is easy to move and transport. It does not require specialist transport and with its lifting frame, fork pockets and optional wheels, it needs minimal on-site equipment. The speed of air evacuation that it delivers is due to a combination of the highly efficient vacuum pump and the fast-priming system. Vac-Prime 4-inch and 6-inch models can manage heads of 11-25 meters, flows of 100-374 m³/h and solids handling of 45-75mm. 914.323.5700, xyleminc.com
