SMA3 SludgeMaster 3" (80 mm) – Submersible Centrifugal Pump


    The SludgeMaster 3" (80 mm) submersible, air-powered dewatering trash pump handles mud, leaves, twigs, sand, sludge, trash-laden water and soft solids to 1½" (40 mm).

    This high-capacity, low-head centrifugal pump provides one of the highest flow rates of any SANDPIPER pump–up to 300 gpm (1,136 lpm)–and safely operates on compressed air and in areas where electric power is unavailable.
