Comet Marine Pumps

"The pumps to move materials that no-one else wants to handle"

  • Any pump with a valve will not handle the sort of mess this pump thrives on.
  • Any pump to handle volume, for instance a centrifugal pump, will emulsify oily water mixes.
  • Any pump with a rubber sleeve will not handle gritty substances.

But the highly versatile and sturdy Comet Marine Pump handles it all - contaminated liquids, lumps and bumps, crushable solids - in fact anything that has an adequate degree of moisture content, and all without emulsifying oily water mixtures. The simple vane-type design of the pump ensures quiet reliability, easy servicing and a long operating life - we regularly supply spares for pumps that have been running for over 30 years.

Technical Information

Because the vane provides a positive displacement at all positions during its rotation, Comet Marine Pumps are self-priming, fully reversible and able to run for long periods. Manufactured from a combination of close-grained cast iron and alloy steel, they are available in both vertical and horizontal forms, with a shaft extension for direct coupling to any type of geared prime mover.

The comparatively low shaft speed of 20 - 300 rpm ensures that oily water mixes do not emulsify, avoiding the problem of clogged filters. The pumps will handle a wide range of materials such as oily waste & sludge, fuel and cylinder oils, stern tube lubricants, resins, pulps, paints, adhesives, crushable solids and fibres in suspension. A maximum lift of 7 metres can be achieved at a capacity of up to 25 cubic metres per hour, whilst, under favourable conditions, the pumps can handle viscosities up to 1500 degrees Engler.
