Elevator Sump Pump System Liberty Pumps
The new ELV-Series sump pumps from Liberty are designed and approved for safe operation of pumping, alarming and monitoring of elevator sump pits, transformer vaults and other applications where oil and water must be detected. Featuring the unique OilTector™ control, the system will activate the pump to remove water from the pit in accordance with ASME17.1. The OilTector stops the pump before oil or other harmful substances are discharged. Alarms for both high water and high oil are integral to the system. A remote mount alarm is included and features auxiliary contacts for connection to a building automation system or SCADA system. Systems are available with 1/3 and 1/2 HP pumps that feature oil resistant power cords and pump components. www.libertypumps.com.

Flood-Guard® General Pipe Cleaners
Prevent basement flooding and messy floors with the Flood-Guard from General Pipe Cleaners. Available for 2-, 3- and 4-inch floor drains, the Flood-Guard operates like a check valve to seal off water backup caused by overloaded sewers. Water flows normally through the drain until the sewer begins to back up. Then the Flood-Guard float rises to seal off the drain opening until the water recedes. A screwdriver and a couple of minutes are all you need to install the Flood-Guard. Once in place, it can prevent property damage and a very messy clean-up job. The Flood-Guard is also available in a stand pipe model for handling extreme, extended pressure. www.drainbrain.com/specialties.
Effective Solids Handling Yeomans Chicago Corp.
A common problem in the design of sewage and wastewater pumping systems is the effective handling of large solids for low-flow high head applications. In order to meet the necessary pump output requirements, the ability to handle large solids is often sacrificed in the pump hydraulic design. Yeomans Chicago Corp. has solved this dilemma with the introduction of its new Model 412.53SV submersible solids-handling pump. The pump utilizes a single-vane impeller that is trimmable to meet the specific duty rating necessary for each application. The impeller will also pass full 3-inch spherical solids to meet the preferred specification requirements of today’s sewage pumping industry. The pump’s capacity range is 100 to 1,100 gpm and it produces discharge pressure up to 175 feet TDH. www.yccpump.com.
