Cornell has pump builds with threaded impeller installations in several of our instructional videos on YouTube. We have created a quick companion video that provides some “how-tos” when dealing with this type of Impeller. While the video is short—only 90 seconds long—it shows how a shaft wrench helps with threaded impeller installation or removal. It… Read more »
A large tomato grower in Central California was having issues with pumps that were being run unattended. Without someone there to watch the pumps continuously, they run into operational problems. The fleet of several dozen pumps would see intermittent cavitation, causing pump damage. Bearing failures were another issue. Frequently, debris would enter the pump suction… Read more »
We went through the build of a 6822MX Redi-Prime pump –look for expanded content to come to our YouTube channel soon. If you want to see great how-to and promotional recordings now, there are more than 40 videos up on YouTube: https://www.youtube.com/c/cornellpumpcompany/featured . You can watch videos, subscribe, and make suggestions for additional videos there.
A feature on many Cornell clear liquid pumps, an external hydraulic balance line, allows better performance, without having to drill holes in impellers. The following copy comes from Cornell Pump’s Hydraulic Seminar Workbook—lasted updated in 2019. THE EXTERNAL HYDRAULIC BALANCE LINE To lower pressure in the stuffing box (or seal chamber) and to attempt to limit… Read more »

Making the right pump selection is very important; the right choice can reduce energy costs and provide decades of strong service. The wrong choice could dramatically increase operation and maintenance costs, and limit the life of the pump. This reminder of what to check comes from Cornell Pump’s Hydraulic Seminar workbook. The information is a… Read more »
Cornell Pump’s design for double volutes can help keep radial forces from snapping a shaft, while increasing wear life. The Double Volute System enables Cornell single stage, end-suction centrifugal pumps to easily handle large volume and high-pressure jobs. As the impeller adds energy to the fluids, pressure increases around the periphery of the volute. On… Read more »
