Pump School 2017 coming soon!

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 to Paint a Pump


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.

The 10STX self-priming pump from Cornell

10stx2Cornell 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 e10stx3xcited 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 210stx1% 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.

Santa Joins Cornell Pump Employees for Breakfast, Photos

Every year, Santa pays a special visit to the children of Cornell Pump employees. They gather for a hearty breakfast and wait for the jolly old elf to arrive, and distribute presents. This year, children ranging in age from 2 months to 17 years old, got a present and a chance to sit with Santa.  As part of the festivities, photos are made of every child, so they can be sent in cards, posted to social media, and/or hung in the home.  We think all of the kids are adorable, and want to share some of the happiness of the event.cornell-x-mas-2016_-115_d
