RAD-AX Submersible Pumps from BJM Offer Innovative Solids Handling
BJM Pumps, a supplier of world class pumps and accessories, has a new patent pending submersible pump called the RAD-AX, which is designed and engineered for superior solids handling. Headquartered in Old Saybrook, CT, BJM Pumps has been providing fluid handling solutions for multiple industries since 1983. Throughout its history, the pump supplier has grown quickly and offers a variety of competitively priced pumps and accessories, which now includes the RAD-AX submersible pump.
The pump can easily shred items that are difficult or nearly impossible for other pumps, including municipal and industrial wastewater solids. The robust construction and newly designed Dual Shredding System offers technology that has never been available before. Flushable wipes can even be effectively handled by RAD-AX’s innovative design.
Dual Shredding patent pending technology features radial and axial shredding elements that are constructed of hardened 440C stainless steel, with a Rockwell hardness of 55C plus. The shredding system is able to alleviate high surge loads with a heavy duty SOOW power and Seal Minder cable that offers early warnings when moisture is detected.
In addition, the efficient high solids passage impeller and volute design is coupled with a high torque four pole motor, while oil-lubricated double mechanical seals and a separate lip seal ensures everything runs smoothly.
A long service life is ensured because a hardened impeller and plate materials provide maximum wear resistance. Hardened cast iron construction is able to stand up to rough handling and gritty water, which further prolongs its life. Winding protection and Class F motor insulation allow motor temperatures to rise to 239 degrees Fahrenheit, but if the temperature gets too high, an automatic thermal switch will turn the pump motor off. When the motor cools, the switch is reset, and the pump will turn back on automatically.
