They may not look quite alike, but two new landfill/remediation pumps from Blackhawk Technology share the same low-cost, high-efficiency DNA—fraternal twins engineered to do more with less, pumping virtually anything flowable with above-ground drive.
One is pneumatic, and the other electric. Both are low profile and worker friendly, with total dynamic head depths to 280 feet and controlled flows from 1.2 to 5.0 gallons per minute (GPM).
Blackhawk’s advanced-design Edge Pneumatic Piston Pump provides up to 20 percent more lift than comparably priced air-push pumps, with matching standard cubic feet per minute air consumption and lower all-in purchase prices.
Edge’s greater surface clearance and innovative closed secondary-containment system improve stuffing box efficiency and significantly reduce seal wear.
Above-ground drive motor and power means no pneumatic air can enter the well, sump or discharge. No fugitive air means far less bio-fouling, carbonate crystallization and air locks along the discharge line, allowing greater efficiency with longer pump life.
Edge Model 101 operates to depths of 280 feet at flows to 2.0 gpm; Model 102 offers flows to 5.0 gpm at depths of 119 feet.
Blackhawk’s Apollo-AC Electric Piston Pump responds to customer requests for a grid-power version of the highly regarded Apollo Solar Piston Pump and its simple, linear-rod driver.
In addition to lower purchase prices and lower amp draws, the low-profile Apollo-AC combines the convenience and consistency of 24/7 grid power with the reliability, low maintenance and easy installation that define Apollo pumps.
Apollo-AC 101 operates to depths of 280 feet at flows to 1.2 gpm; Model 102 offers flows to 3.0 gpm at depths of 120 feet. The 3/8-horsepower motor runs on virtually any converted AC source.
All Blackhawk piston pumps feature above-ground mechanical drive motors for cleaner, safer, less-frequent servicing and are eco-friendly—no odors or gases are forced into the atmosphere.
