Introducing portable hydraulic submersible pumps
July 6, 2011
Portable submersible hydraulic pumps
satisfy a particular need for pumping in lift-station bypass operations, flood control, and lagoon pumpdown -- in addition to many other applications -- where the water level is 25' or more below the ground elevation, but where electricity isn't readily available. Available atmospheric pressure usually prohibits above-ground engine-driven pumps from lifting water more than about 25' from the water level to the pump. Those deeper applications usually call for submersible pumps, but sometimes electricity isn't available -- or using it to drive an electric-powered submersible pump may present a safety hazard.
