Lightweight Pump Systems Deliver Flows Up To 30 GPM

The SlimJim Electric Pump Systems, from Q.E.D. Environmental Systems, Inc., is suited for landfills and environmental remediation sites. Part of the Torpedo pump range, it requires no separate control panel and features built-in auto on/off start and run-dry protection. It offers plug-in operation at 115V or 230V single phase power.


With a 4.5-in. outer diameter, the pump is compact and weighs 22 lbs., making it viable for smaller diameter risers such as cleanouts, collapsed pipes or bent risers. The pump’s optional three phase operation with control panels adds several benefits, including variable speed, programmable from an iPhone, and the ability to view and change pump data and parameters. This cost effective pump lowers capital costs and eases maintenance, as proven in installations at over 500 landfills.
