When your customers need help handling products like disposable wipes or sanitary products, you can confidently offer them our Shark® Series pump models.

Our top-of-the-line single-direction grinder pumps are ready to tackle even the most challenging materials. They use a dual-blade, angled design to produce 3,450 rpm to reduce materials to less than 1/8 inch. These commercial grinder pumps will then transport the wastewater away at a rate of 46 gallons per minute (GPM), giving you an efficient and reliable solution.

Their capabilities and features also include the following:

  • Integral control
  • Thermal overload protection
  • Hermetically sealed motors
  • Cast-iron construction
