Cornell Hydro Turbines

Cornell Pump featured Hydro Turbines at the recently-concluded WEFTEC 2018. Cornell has manufactured hydro turbines since the 1950’s, getting our start with the spate of hydro-electric projects in the Northwest at that time.

With more than 60 years of experience, Cornell Pump’s hydro turbines allow industrial plants, municipalities, and farmers/ranchers to tap available resources for energy recovery. They can use the available power as a revenue source, or as a means to reduce overall energy demand.

Our turbines operate at heads as lows as 50’ and flows as low as 90 GPM. To learn more about our offerings, visit our dedicated hydro turbine page, where you can download brochures, make some preliminary calculations on the energy you can generator (using the form in the hydro turbine brochure), and see the various mounting styles and configurations of the hydro turbines we offer.

Cornell exhibits at Reinke Irrigation Show

Once again, Cornell Pump’s blue tote bags were a hit at the Reinke Irrigation Dealer Convention.  Cornell regional managers and agricultural market manager talked with hundreds of dealers at the annual event.  Open to Reinke dealers, it was held in Spokane, Washington. Our tote giveaway is so popular, that even though we doubled the amount available, all the totes were given out in about an hour. We will bring even more of them next year, Reinke dealers!

You can visit our tradeshows and events page to see where we will have these popular giveways available.

Cornell Pump School Pump Assembly Training Video

Cornell wrapped up our Pump School 2018 about 10 days ago. During our morning factory sessions, we demonstrated the assembly of a clear water pump.

This video shows how the pump goes together and offers maintenance ideas, assembly tips, and also shows questions from audience members being answered.

While pump school in person is the best, this video can be a great help for mechanics, operators, and anyone who wants to see a pump being assembled.

And, it might inspire you to attend a  Cornell Pump training, like our Pump School 2019, on one of the numerous regional schools we hold around the country.

New Mobile Toolkit Available Soon

Cornell Pump has a mobile toolkit application that allows users to calculate TDH, friction loss, and NPSH. It also allows users to select Cornell Products that best match the calculated values, as well as save them for later reference, send them to a colleague, and request a quote from Cornell.

The mobile toolkit will be expanding in the next few weeks; we are currently beta testing a metric version.

The toolkit is available as an application on the Apple Store and on Google Play. When available in the next couple weeks, the metric version will be there as well. Find links to both of these here.

WEFTEC 2018 is going on now!

Pump School 2018 Advanced Assembly Training

Cornell Pump hosted our 69th Annual Pump School last week. We’ve trained more than 13,000 attendees on hydraulics, pump operation, NPSH A/R, and more at the numerous pumps schools we’ve run in Portland.

Here is a video of the advance factory session, where a Redi-Prime®  unit was being assembled. It provides a good overview of the process for tear down, and answers some question on rebuilds. On our YouTube page, you can see dozens of how-to, promotional, and informational videos from Cornell Pump, in addition to this video on the Redi-Prime assembly.

And consider attending PUMP SCHOOL 2019 in September of 2019, in beautiful Portland, Oregon!
