Submersible Electric Pump Station Inspections Save Money and Property: Cast Iron Pump vs. MWI 316 Stainless Steel Pump

During recent pump station inspections in South Florida, the comparison between a cast iron submersible electric and MWI’s 316 stainless steel submersible electric pump highlighted significant differences. The pump was removed due to failure after just over 3 years of use. The need for replacement resulted in unexpected downtime and non-budgeted costs.

Cast Iron Pump Issues

  • Heavy corrosion on the motor housing
  • Discharge diffuser detached from the pump with multiple holes rotted through
  • Impeller blades missing

In contrast, MWI’s pump demonstrated superior durability and performance. MWI Pumps are built tough, featuring corrosion resistant components for enhanced efficiency and service longevity. All of which lead to reduced cost of ownership over the lifespan of the pump station.

MWI Stainless Steel Pump

  • Complete 316 stainless steel construction
  • No corrosion or growth on the housings
  • Placed back into service
    after a clean bill of health
