Trash Flow Centrifugal Pumps: Why a Trash Flow?

Patented Adjustable Wear Plate Carrier

This unique design allows precise adjustment of impeller to wear ring tolerance. The external jack screws allow the carrier to shift and lock in any predetermined horizontal direction. This design reduces maintenance costs and can improve overall pump efficiency without shimming or wear plate replacement.


Unique Axial Rib Design

Axial ribs located on the inner stuffing box, prevent entrapment of solids and vapor near the mechanical seal. This feature improves flow within the chamber and eliminates dry running failure, resulting in extended pump and seal life.


Enlarged Bearing Housing

The oversized bearing housing gives unsurpassed shaft support, reducing roller bearing fatigue. It is equipped with well positioned drain points and oiler connection, in addition to a unique domed sight glass that permits visual observation of the oil level in the casing. Rear Pump Out Vanes Rear pump out vanes greatly reduce axial thrust and pressure on seal and bearings, resulting in a virtual elimination of radial loads, which effectively increases pump performance and overall efficiency.


Quick Clean Design

The back-pull design allows for removal of full rotation assembly without disturbing plumbing. It also permits replacement of wear plate and access for casing inspection.


Enlarged Clean Out Port

Large sized clean out holes allow for inspection of inner casing by a simple twist of the hand knobs (no special tools required).


Corrosion Resistant Roller Bearings

The oversized ball bearings are oil lubricated, requiring no external cooling and are designed to operate for a MINIMUM of 120,000 hours without replacement.


Replaceable Suction Flapper

The heavy duty flapper valve is easily accessible for general inspection, without the need for special tooling or pipe disruption, through the twist of hand knobs.


Flanged Gauge Connections

Standard gauge connections in accordance with ANSI standards allow for recording and monitoring suction and discharge pressures with the use of Wastecorp's selection of optional Ashcroft® Pressure Gauges.


Corrosion Resistant Casing

All Trash Flow® pumps are designed with thick walled casings to withstand abrasive sludge and slurries. Most models are available in a variety of castable materials, although generally supplied in cast and ductile iron.
