Blackhawk's Anchor Pump SS Ideal For Slide Slope Riser Applications
Press release date: December 14, 2001
Glen Ellyn, IL - BLACKHAWK ENVIRONMENTAL COMPANY announces that its positive displacement explosion-proof Anchor Pump SS is ideal for slide slope riser applications. This explosion-proof packaged system can be powered either pneumatically or electrically and effectively recovers groundwater, product and leachate with a smooth controlled flow recovery. No pneumatic air lines or electric wires enter the well or tank.
The Anchor Pump SS is a reciprocating action piston pump that recovers fluid from the well bottom, independent of the well's liquid level, while maintaining a constant flow rate. The Anchor Pump SS is tuned to the recovery yield of the formation being pumped.
Anchor Pump SS are manufactured in a range of sizes and designs depending on the degree of application difficulty. They can be constructed of stainless steel or thermoplastic. It has a skidded pump carrier and its pump intake nozzle can lie horizontal in sump. The Anchor Pump SS operates at flow rates from 1-10 GPM.
The Anchor Pump SS is easy to install and maintain. It features a pump drive mechanism that is positioned outside of the well and all power and air lines are also located outside of the well.
Unlike other pumps, where performance is limited by liquid level head, the Anchor Pump SS draws down to zero level. This piston pump can work in iron bacteria and encrustation environments and be installed in wells as small as 2" in diameter.
For over ten years, the Blackhawk Anchor Pump SS has been successfully operating in landfills across the United States. Blackhawk Environmental Co. has been providing pumping solutions for the industrial, environmental, landfill and groundwater markets. Blackhawk specializes in manufacturing quality pumps and controls for demanding pumping applications.
