GATOR PUMP, INC., a small, woman-owned corporation established in 1978, manufactures high volume pumps for flood irrigation, flood control, liquid waste pumping, pond transfer in wildlife management, fish hatcheries, oil well reserve pits, and a variety of other applications.
The pumps are steel fabricated and are offered in several different configurations, including trailer pumps, floating pumps, vertical pumps and hydraulic pumps. The submerged operations of the case and impeller eliminates priming and suction hose and also enhances the moving of heavy solids if needed.
Standard pump sizes range from 4" discharge to 24" discharge, with flows from 1500 gallons per minute to 18,000 gallons per minute discharge. They are powered either by the P.T.O. of tractors, diesel engines, electric motors, or hydraulically. Custom fabrication for specific applications is available. These pumps come with a full-year warranty.
The casing and impeller design is a single stage radial flow centrifugal pump. Suction is either single or double depending on the pump size with either a closed or open impeller. A ninety degree elbow and steel pipe convey liquid being pumped to the front of the trailer and also forms part of the trailer's structure. The pump shafting is turned, ground, and polished 1045 carbon steel. Water lubricated marine bearings press-fit into steel housings and support the shafting on both sides of the casing. Sealed ball bearings support the shafting to the front of the pump. The pump is prepared for painting by sandblasting, then an epoxy undercoat and finished with an acrylic enamel.
