General Industrial

Pumps used in general industrial practice face an unlimited mix of potential solids, slurry and wastewater ingredients. In various industries, acidic or alkaline wastewater, wood bits and bark, animal hide and fats, metal scale and filings, sand, gravel or coal may enter the pit. If the pump clogs, not only is there downtime, but danger to the worker who drops into the pit to manually clear away clogs. The injury potential is high during this manual process. For pumps that can handle sharp or bulky solids, withstand the caustic, hot wastewater and reliably perform day in and out without clogs, our industrial customers come to BJM Pumps.

Our case studies below present real-life proof of the daily durability of our solids handling, high temperature-high endurance and/or corrosion resistant pumps. Read more to see if your wastewater and solids pump solutions should come from BJM Pumps.
