Refuse Pump Overview
The Smart Turner Pumps Inc Refuse Pump is designed to handle solids up to 2'/2 inch diameter, with a minimum of maintenance, in a wide variety of applications. Vertical wet pit pumps have bolted columns with a guide bushing in each section to ensure that shaft support is provided at intervals of no more than 3 feet. Dry pit, full ball bearing power frame pumps are available in vertical frame mounted drive, vertical flexible shaft drive, or horizontal arrangements.
Depending on application, sizes are available for capacities to 600 USGPM, heads to 100 feet, and speeds to 1800 RPM.
Smart Turner Refuse Pumps are produced in a range of 3 models.
Other Smart Turner pump catalogues and products to meet your remaining pumping needs are outlined on the inside back cover.
- All Iron*
- All Stainless Steel
(*Castings stocked for all sizes)
Any other castable, machinable alloy can be considered.

Refuse Pump Specifications
Casing: A radially split, cast volute with separate suction cover (except Model 3HZ) ruggedly designed with generous allowance for abrasion and corrosion.
Impeller: Cast in one piece, the open impeller is trimmed to the exact diameter required and is factory balanced. The two bladed impeller effectively resists clogging and handles up to 21/2 inch solids. The clearance between the impeller and the suction cover is factory set to ensure optimum performance and no field adjustment is required. The impeller is keyed to the shaft and secured by a locknut.
Column: Standard columns to 12ft., and longer when required, are assembled from 3, 2 and 1 ft. long, cast column pipes with integral flanges and spigot fits to ensure rigidity and alignment. Each column pipe is of heavy section to minimize deflection and incorporates large relief holes to ensure no pressure build up is possible in the column.
Shaft: Ground alloy, generously sized to provide torsional strength for continuous start/stop operation, and supported, at intervals of 3 ft. maximum, by a guide bushing in each column pipe section. The shaft is sealed at the support plate by a lip seal immediately below the thrust bearing.
Thrust Bearing: A heavy duty grease lubricated, self aligning ball bearing in its own cast iron bearing housing, which is spigotted and bolted to the pearplate, supports the shaft axially and allows simple axial shaft and impeller adjustment. Excess grease pressure relief is built in.
Guide Bushings: Standard bushings are cast bronze, fully machined to close tolerances, and have a double helix lubricant path to ensure optimum lubricant penetration. Bushings are long to provide good radial support to the shaft. Chemloy, Cutless, and other bushing types and materials are available. Heavy duty bushings fitted with lip seals are available for abrasive service where external lubrication is not feasible.
Lubrication: Grease lubrication is standard for all solid bushings, and when necessary oil lubrication can be provided. For severe services and special applications, bushings can be provided with external liquid lubrication arrangements. Cutless bushings must be liquid lubricated.
Pearplate: The pump is supported by a heavy section, pear shaped casting, with spigotted fits for column and motor stool, providing rigidity and alignment, and allowing removal of the entire pump including discharge pipe without dismantling.
Motor Stool: A rigid cast iron stool, spigotted for a 'C' flange motor, is standard.
Interchangeability: The three pumps in this range share columns and pearplates with the 17 models of the standard Vertical Sump Pump range.
Settings: Standard columns provide settings (pear-plate to suction) to 12 feet depending on model. Longer settings can be provided either by use of a suction nipple or, depending on model and rating, by a longer column. A split column and shaft is provided for settings over 12 ft.
Materials of Construction: Cast iron, 304/316 Stainless Steel, or other machineable alloys as required () I for the service.
Coverplate: Coverplates designed to support the complete unit and fabricated to our standard dimensions, or to suit installation requirements, can be pro-vided, and can have openings for controls, vents, or manhole as space permits.
Flexible Coupling: For normal duty, our own pin and rubber buffer type coupling is standard to 75 HP at 1800 RPM and motor frame 365TC. However, couplings of almost any style or manufacture can be accommodated.
Suction Nipple: Enables the pump to be applied to greater depths.
Float Switch: Float Switch(es), Mechanical or Electrical Alternator, Control Panel, or High Water Alarm are available on application.
Other Vertical Sump Pumps
Standard Vertical Sump Pumps, to size 8 x 6 x 13 are also available.
