Pumps for landfill liquid management

The Torpedo pump stirs influent to allow solids through.

Dexter, Michigan – Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., a manufacturer of environmental products and subsidiary of Graco Inc., has launched a new series of pumps.

Torpedo G1275 pumps are large-body pumps designed for heavy-duty applications. They work by stirring the influent stream to allow slurries and solids to pass through. They are meant for use in applications including landfill liquid management and remediation pumping applications.

The pumps are constructed of cast iron and stainless steel, and fitted with heavy-duty bearings and seals. The hardened, high-chrome impeller assembly can pass solids.

Torpedo G1275 pumps feature hardened impellers which resist abrasion and wear, preventing wear and tear. This ensures a long pump life in aggressive situations. The pumps resist corrosion by means of an HDPE-encapsulated body, stainless steel water jacket and polymer power cable. The pumps use a five-horsepower motor to provide the torque required for pumping silt, slurry and solid contaminants.

Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., a subsidiary of Graco Inc., is a manufacturer of environmental pumping systems, landfill products, landfill gas products, and air strippers for use at landfills, mines, oil refineries and other industrial sites, as well as hazardous waste cleanup sites. Its

products are used around the world for a wide range of environmental applications, including groundwater sampling, groundwater remediation pumping, landfill leachate and condensate pumping, landfill gas collection and control, landfill and biogas analysis, air stripping and VOC removal, and wireless data acquisition.
