Today is National Agriculture Day

Today, March 14, 2019, The Agriculture Council of America (ACA) hosts the 46th anniversary of National Agriculture Day. This year’s theme is “Agriculture: Food for Life.”

Cornell Pump’s first pumps were irrigation pumps used in Oregon’s fertile Willamette Valley, and agricultural pumping, including dewatering, irrigation, and manure handling remain strong markets for Cornell Pump today.

We support National Agriculture Day, and the goals that every American:

  • Understand how food and fiber products are produced
    · Appreciate the role agriculture plays in providing safe, abundant and affordable products
    · Value the essential role of agriculture in maintaining a strong economy
    · Acknowledge and consider career opportunities in the agriculture, food and fiber industry

Cornell training on slurry pump rebuilds

Today, Cornell Pump worked with a Western United States industrial and mining distributor on pump training for over 20 associates.  Dedicated Cornell sales and engineer team explained how to service and rebuild slurry pumps, and offered insights into pump operation and differentiable features.

If you are a Cornell distributor interested in Lunch-and-Learns and/or pump maintenance, contact your Cornell Regional Sales manager. If you are an end-user, e-mail  for these presentations. We’re happy to explain why Cornell Pump is Efficient by Design!

Congratulations to Detroit Pump

Cornell Pump is pleased to congratulate our distributor, Detroit Pump, on getting an article published in the February 2019 Cover Series of Pumps&Systems magazine.  The article “Is Basic Data Enough When Selecting the Right Pump?”, explores common pitfalls in choosing equipment for specialty applications.

As part of the Series Selecting the Right Pump, the article discusses pumping things as diverse as milk, Chinese hamster ovaries, and sewage, and offers suggestions to consider in making the selection the best possible for the application.

Detroit Pump’s Frank Hinlopen, Gary Maley, and Scott Morrell wrote the feature.  Together they have more than 80 years in the fluid-handling industry. And, the article features Cornell solid handling pumps as a photo illustration!
