The Sump-Gard SGK pump from Vanton Pump & Equipment Corp.

Mechanically minded professionals know that centrifugal pumps will seize if allowed to run dry. Vanton Pump & Equipment Corp says plant managers who must contend with the possibility of pumps running dry, can now avoid seizing problems by using the company’s Sump-Gard SGK cantilevered, bearingless vertical pump. This pump features a large diameter, plastic sleeved, stainless steel shaft that eliminates the need for immersing bearings or bushings, which enables the SGK pump to run-dry for indefinite periods of time.

The rugged SGK has a chemical resistant epoxy coated, cast iron motor bracket that accommodates NEMA, IEC and standard European motors. It is available in lengths to 4 ft (1.21 m) and flows to 1,000 gpm (227 m3/hr). Engineered to operate in corrosive, abrasive, hazardous and ultrapure fluid applications, the SGK is available in PVC, CPVC, PP and PVDF.
