SKG Series submersible, solids-handling pumps from BJM Pumps feature a Dual Shredding System for 2, 3 and 5 hp pumps. The pumps can shred a variety of wastewater solids, including flushable wipes. Shredding elements are made of hardened 440C stainless steel with a Rockwell hardness of 55C plus.

“The SKG is a solids reducing design and as such, solids larger than the physical passages in the pump enter the suction where their dimensions are reduced prior to being pumped,” says Ron Woodward, president of BJM Pumps. “The cutter bar design kicks out large solids and takes a bite out of the object. This continues until the entire object is consumed by the pump. In lab tests, we were able to pump cans and large plastic bottles that were reduced to pulp-size pieces.”

The hybrid pump performs radial and axial cutting, acting as both a shredder and grinder. Applications include wastewater treatment facilities, food processing plants, hospitals, prisons, schools or where a lift station is needed.

The pump series includes the 2 hp SKG15C (201 gpm, 37-foot total dynamic head), 3 hp SKG22C (325 gpm, 46-foot TDH) and 5 hp SKG37C (480 gpm, 49-foot TDH). The SKG15C has a 5.88-inch impeller diameter and weighs 149 pounds. The SKG22C has 6.5-inch impeller diameter and weighs 157 pounds, while the SKG37C has a 7.13-inch impeller diameter and weighs 185 pounds. Each of the pumps has a 3-inch NPT female discharge and maximum submersion depth of 65 feet.

The Class F insulated motors feature thermal and amp overload protection and can handle liquids to 104 degrees F. 860/399-5937; www.bjmpumps.com.
