Pump Trash

Pump Trash

  • Can handle dirty water and some solids.

  • Trash pumps are capable of processing materials with suspended particulates that would clog other centrifugal pumps, basically it is a heavy-duty centrifugal pump that features deeper impeller vanes and larger discharge openings than other pumps.
