Airlift Conversions

Many of our original air lift pumps installed prior to 1982 are still in operation. We continue to produce and manufacture parts supporting these former models.

Air lift pumps are usually designed for low flow applications or where plant air is readily available. If your plant flow has increased, consider converting to the top mounted PISTA® TURBO™ Grit Pump. Constructed with a Ni-Hard Impeller and Ni-Hard volute, this makes one tough combination. The advantages are numerous. Also, with the addition of the PISTA® Grit Fluidizer, the grit hopper will prevent compaction from occuring.

  • Oversized shaft
  • Vertical configuration
  • Recessed impeller
  • Ni-hard impeller and volute
