Cornell Pump, in conjunction with Pumps&Systems magazine, is hosting a free webinar on the Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) , and highlighting our Cornell Co-Pilot™ pump monitoring system. We encourage all distributors to attend to see these new innovations. The webinar will provide a better understanding of IIOT, and how a distributorship could leverage this new technology to get closer to your customers.
We also encourage you to share the opportunity with your end-users. They can benefit from seeing how pump monitoring can help them predict maintenance issues, better understand their operations, and avoid costly shutdowns.
The webinar is at 9:00 a.m. Pacific time (16:00GMT) on Thursday, April 15. Duration is one hour, and there is no cost to registrants. You must register to attend. And, if you can’t make the session live, it will be recorded and available for a month afterwards.
Heard the Acronym IIOT but you are not sure what it means? Are you an old pro at the Industrial Internet of Things, and wonder how big data analytics can make monitoring your pump easier in 2021? Or somewhere in between?
For any case, Cornell Pump, in conjunction with Pumps&Systems magazine, has an informative webinar for you! On Thursday, April 15 at 8:00 a.m. Pacific, Cornell’s IIOT Sales Manager BJ Warren will walk you through the basics of IIOT, how our Co-Pilot and Pulse monitors can make predictive maintenance easier, share some customer experiences in deploying IIOT, and look towards the future of big data and how the information gleaned from IIOT devices can make running a plant, farm, or mine easier in the future.
The webinar will last about 45 minutes, and include interactive Q&A. The presentation is no-charge, and if you can’t view the event live, you can watch it afterwards—it will be available until May 14.
Cornell is excited about our new cartridge seals available for hot oil pumps. We created a short video explaining the process to convert the seal to new style cartridge version.
You can convert older style Cornell hot oil pumps to accept new style cartridge seals, while utilizing the existing volute and impeller—only replacing the rotating assembly to accept the new seal system.
While the previous seal system has worked well for decades, and can still be employed, the new system has some distinct advantages, including:
Safety. Better protection of employees and plant against leaks and failures.
Uptime. Improved reliability keeps plant up and operable.
Seal Life. Enhanced seal life against coking and product build-up.
Maintenance. Installation and repair are easy to carry out with the new seal, and galling is less likely to occur on the shaft.
Enhance heat range. Seals are usable up to 4500F/ 232C.
See how this innovative IIOT product can be used in underground, surface, solution, and placer mining applications. Co-Pilot also is able to attach to other rotating equipment, so you could get a better picture of site operations from all your machinery.
Installing a mechanical seal on a centrifugal pump wrong can be costly and time consuming. Cornell’s newest video on YouTube provides some quick tips and lessons to help make the process smoother.
Mechanical seals play an integral role in keeping pumpage inside the pump. Sealing at the entry/exit point of the rotating shaft, Cornell mechanical seals with Cycloseal® have some distinct advantages over packing, in that they do not require flush water and will not gall shaft, do not require routine adjustment like packing, and last longer than packing before being replaced.
Cornell has several videos showing seal installation you can reference beyond these quick tips, if you want to see a full assembly.

Yesterday was NationalCut YourEnergy Costs Day. Cornell Pumps are some of the most efficient centrifugal pumps available, with efficiencies up to 89%, allowing installations to cut their energy use immediately when switching to a Cornell.
Operating hundreds or thousands of hours per year, that energy savings could translate into tens of thousands of dollars in savings annually.
Distributors and end-users should consider energy savings, repair costs, and length of warranty, along with NPSH and system design, when choosing a pump.
In 2021, Cornell Pump will celebrate 75 years of business. In 1946 we started in Portland, Oregon, and have been here in Oregon ever since! While we now offer things that would have been science fiction in 1946, such as Cornell Co-Pilot Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT), we still build highly efficient, robust pumps like we have for nearly 75 years.
Cornell Pump rings in the new year with a long weekend. We will be closed Friday, January 1st through Monday, January 4, 2021. We wish everyone a happy and healthy new year! We open at 7AM PDT on Tuesday, January 5th, 2021 .
