Sandpiper Duty Pumps Help Reduce Cost of Ownership

13 February 2020

Sandpiper has helped companies fill exceptional pump needs for more than 50 years, and York Fluid Controls is proud to make Sandpiper products available in Canada. Users can easily choose sizes that fit within their cost-of-ownership budgets. With its wide range of standard duty pumps, Sandpiper helps companies meet their fluid-control needs in efficient ways.

Multiple sizes of pumps can meet pumping requirements (both flow and head) for most applications. By investing in an appropriately sized pump, the user can reduce the consolidated initial investment, repair, labor and energy expenses. This is a best practice that ensures desirable returns on the initial investment, which is frequently measurable in weeks.

Standard duty pumps come in a broad variety of shapes and sizes, so it is important for the user to make sure that the correct model is selected, in order to fulfill a pumping application efficiently and effectively. The line of standard duty pumps is made of aluminum, cast iron, stainless steel, and non-metallic materials like PTFE, polypropylene, and PVDF with thermal plastic elastomers, plus PTFE options in diaphragms and check valves. They are lightweight and portable, with weights as low as one kilogram, and feature an all-bolted construction that is durable and withstands high pressure.

Other major features include the following: top discharge, for pumping out of tough areas; ball check valves, for powerful, high-flow pumping; diaphragm connecting rods, for reliable and consistent diaphragm control; an externally serviceable air-distribution system; and dynamic manifold connections, for 90- and 180-degree rotation options.
