NSF-Certified Pumps

Cornell Pump is pleased to announce that 23 of Cornell’s clear liquid pump models have been certified to meet the NSF/ANSI 61 and 372 Certifications for lead content. These pumps can be specified in projects which require pumps to meet these strict certification levels.
Features include:

  • Discharge size from 1.25” to 8” (3cm to 20cm),
  • Flows from 30 GPM to near 6,000 GPM (7 to 1,360 m3/h)
  • Heads from 40’ to over 500’ (12.2 to 152m)
  • NPSHr as low as 4’ (1.22 m)
  • High-efficiency design to save energy costs
  • Cycloseal® Sealing system
  • Two-year warranty

Uses for NSF Pumps

Municipal: potable water applications to transfer water from rivers, wells, and reservoirs to treatment facilities, intra-facility, and to end-users. Useful in retrofits to abate lead and other contaminant issues, the pumps are also applicable in agricultural irrigation where lead content is regulated.

Industrial: potable water applications in industrial plants, to transfer water into factories, where no lead content can be added. Also for pump-treated or pre-treatment waste streams out of factories, to avoid introducing lead into the watershed or municipal treatment facilities. Additionally, they can be used in food packing applications where liquid with product is required to meet lead-free standards.

Rental: The pumps are useful in rental applications where certification alleviates the concern over the pump’s potential for contributing to lead contamination.

Visit the new NSF Pumps page on the Cornell website for more information, including a brochure and a list of all certified pump models and datasheets.

Throw Back Thursday – Pump School from the early 1950s

This picture is from the early days of Pump School. Company founder Clint Warren (back to camera at lectern) was leading the class. Since Cornell started pump schools in 1949, we have trained tens of thousands of participants on basic hydraulics, centrifugal pump operation, and pump troubleshooting.

We’re celebrating 70 years of pump school this year—Pump School is sold out for 2019, however you can request to be put on a waiting list.

We’re in Las Vegas Today!

Cornell Pump is supporting a distributor at the 35th annual Tri-State Seminar in Las Vegas. Aimed at water and waste water professionals in Arizona, Nevada, and California, the show is a great place to showcase our solutions for waste water such as cutters and N-series pumps. Our 23 models of NSF certified pumps have also proven very interesting to attendees. The Seminar runs through August 8th at the South Point Hotel & Casino.

Big Impeller

Cornell Pump sees thousands of impellers machined and balanced in the factory every year. Some are considerably bigger than others, though. This solids handling impeller is pictured next to a bronze impeller often used in our agricultural pumps for size comparison.  It started out as 28″ in diameter (before trimming) and 19 1/4″ tall. Also notice the 12″/ 30cm ruler in front of the impeller for reference.

Cornell makes impellers that can handle more than a 10″/ 26cm solid, with flows over 38,000 GPM/ 8600 m3/h. Many of our brochures list types of impellers available, and all of our data sheets show impeller materials and trims available.  You can find most of our brochures here on the Cornell Website.
