FORT WAYNE, Ind., May 16, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Franklin Electric Co., Inc. (www.franklin-electric.com) (NASDAQ:FELE) offers the new SSI Series Submersible Pumps as a cost-effective, high-flow option to meet the demanding pumping challenges in irrigation, agricultural, industrial, and municipal applications. Available in 6-inch, 8-inch, and 10-inch models with flows from 85 to 1300 gpm at a maximum of 1250 feet of head, this stamped stainless steel pump family is fully serviceable and corrosion resistant.
The rugged SSI Series has two unique features that allow it to maximize performance in extreme conditions. Its I-Blade technology increases the structural integrity of the pump’s internal components, pumping more water per horsepower and improving efficiency when compared to traditional impeller designs. Utilizing tungsten inert gas (TIG) progressive welding, the metal materials are mixed during the process, creating a stronger bond for durability in harsh environments.
The entire series can be sized using Franklin Electric’s “FE Select” sizing and quoting software. Other series features include the replaceable wear rings and Nitrile rubber-fluted bearings that ensure added durability against wear for long-lasting performance and reliability.
