Cornell Pump welcomed nearly 175 people to Pump School 2017 for two days of intensive training focusing on a range of topics from pump selection to ragging and solids handling. Pump School continues through Wednesday, January 25, 2017. Attendees have the opportunity to tour the factory, see our test lab in operation, and receive training on pump assembly/disassembly.
We always look forward to this opportunity to connect with our distributors and their customers during Pump School.
Cornell Pump has a mobile app to help calculate system flow and select pumps. Powerful, with detailed pump curves and pump recommendations, the mobile app can be used to calculate:
- Total Dynamic Head
- Net Positive Suction Head
- Friction Loss
As well as
- Save and share your calculations
- Suggest pumps from Cornell’s robust and efficient catalog to meet your system needs.
Cornell Mobile Tool Kit is a free app for Android or Apple iOS. It’s usable on tablets and phones, without the need to be connected to the internet. Conduct calculations and checks in the field. Useful for project managers, engineers, operators, mechanics, and distributors in agricultural, industrial, municipal, mining, and rental applications.

Cornell Staff will be on hand starting today, January 9th, through Wednesday, January 11th, at the annual NW Food Processors Association Expo. This 3-day show in Portland covers all aspects of food processing. Come down and check out our Arctic King Refrigeration pumps, and learn more about our solids handling pumps for food processing, STX self-priming pumps, and clear water pumps for industrial and agricultural use.
In the spirit of the New Year, the ball is about to drop on the opportunity to attend one of the country’s longest-running pump trainings. Since 1949, tens of thousands of participants have learned at the annual Pump School put on by Cornell Pump.
In 2017, we’re hosting the school in January rather than in September, allowing those who have standing commitments, such as farmers with harvest, to attend the informative school. Time is short, though. The school runs January 24 and 25, 2017, and includes classroom and hands-on instruction. Only a few spots remain, and hotel rooms are filling up fast.
More information about the school can be found here, along with a registration form. At $175 (or even less, if distributor-sponsored), the school is a great value.
Hurry, you should sign up by January 6—this Friday—for best room availability and to ensure a registration slot.
How much paint goes on a pump? Cornell Pump’s painter Steve Janz (shown in the paint booth below) says most pumps get about 32oz (about a liter) of paint. That’s on a typical 6” or 8” pump. Depending on priming and size of pump, the amount can be as high as two gallons (~7.5 liters) on pump.
Cornell is working hard today before the Christmas holiday. Steve will be busy in the paint booth get pumps out for customers. Whether you want it in Rain-0-Flo Blue, Black, Yellow, White, or another color, or fast and efficient painters will get it set for you.
Cornell Pump extends our warmest Holiday wishes to all our customers and business partners around the world. During the holiday season, Cornell will be closed on the upcoming days:
- December 26th in observance of Christmas
- January 2nd in observance of New Years
Cornell recently added a 10” pump to our popular STX Self Priming Line. The 10STX seen here getting photographed for our revised self-priming brochures and data sheets.
We’re excited where this distinctive looking self-primer fits in our line. Along with other self-primers in 8”,6”,4”, 3” and 2”, the 10STX offers a high efficiency solution to industrial, municipal, rental, and agricultural applications.
The 10 STX has heads up to 180 feet, and flows to 4,500 GPM. It’s a standard self-primer with a ductile iron wet end and 17-4PH shaft. The bearing frame is larger than most competitors. The flapper is easily installed and removed via a replaceable pin design.
The 10STX can pass a 3” solid. If there ever was a need to remove a solid, the side mounted suction makes it easy to remove the impeller and flapper.
The 10STX is at least 2% higher in efficiency and boosts lower NPSHR than competitors. It can be sped up to 1,800 RPM with a trimmed impeller.
Look for new data sheets and a new Self-Primer Brochure in the next few days. We’ve added a few “sneak-peek” photos and the variable speed curve in this post.
