Groundwater control specialists
Griffin is one of the oldest and most respected names in the groundwater control industry. The handling of groundwater is among the most complex of all underground problems. Griffin Pump has over 75 years’ experience in manufacturing innovative equipment that is a direct result of field experience.
Rugged dewatering pumps and equipment
Griffin has always focused on building rugged dewatering pumps and equipment that would keep pace as it has improved many of the now classic dewatering techniques such as well points, deep well, and eductor systems. That same drive for innovation exists today in meeting the high flow requirements for open pit pumping, large bypass and maintaining low noise level areas with the silent packaged pumps.
Low-maintenance dewatering pumps
Griffin’s pumps provide the highest air-handling capacity on standard units in the market and are uniquely designed to address the needs encountered in dewatering, bypass, and open pumping and hydraulic-submersible pump applications. Griffin units are designed to give long, trouble-free service and perform continuously for extended periods with minimal attention and maintenance.
Non-clog pumps for groundwater control
Non-clog pumps handle debris up to 4.5in and feature a clean-out / inspection port for hassle-free removal of larger debris that is easily visible in the inspection port, and can be removed.
Stainless-steel hydraulic submersible pumps
Griffin manufactures stainless-steel hydraulic submersible pumps for a long pump life, which have the ability to withstand corrosive environments. The pumps are available in sizes from 4in to 24in and flows to 20,000gpm.
Hydraulic submersible pumps
Hydraulic submersible pumps handle solids of 3in, flows to 20,000gpm and heads to 120ft. Designed to run dry without damaging components, Griffin’s submersible pumps are durable and reliable.
High-flow jet pumps
Griffin jet pumps are capable of delivering flow over 1,400gpm and head conditions up to 900ft. They are well-suited for work that requires high flow, high head and high pressure.
Groundwater control trash-handling pumps
Siphoning or draining water has its challenges – especially when it is full of debris. Griffin trash-handling pumps are the ideal solution, with capacity to pump 17,000gpm and head of 240ft.
