Franklin Electric's New FPS IGPH Series of High Head Grinders Slice Through Sewage at 414,000 Cuts per Minute

FORT WAYNE, IN--(Marketwired - Dec 15, 2015) - Franklin Electric Co., Inc. ( (NASDAQ: FELE) introduces the new FPS IGPH Series of high head grinder pumps engineered for the tough demands of higher head conditions found in many low pressure sewage transfer applications. Available in an automatic or manual version, the FPS IGPH Series of high head grinder pumps utilize a proven and patented cutter system with tight clearances for superior grinding at 414,000 cuts per minute. These new units incorporate two non-clogging impeller stages for efficient pumping of sewage slurries with a shut-off head of 200 feet. With only 16 full-load amps at minimum head requirements of 100 feet, these units can replace other grinders that fail to meet current application needs.

Available in single phase or three phase versions, the FPS IGPH Series of high head grinder pumps employ a powerful 2 hp, 3,450 rpm motor to handle the demands of grinding domestic sewage. Other design features include corrosion-resistant upper and lower brass impellers that minimize downtime and maintenance and built-in overload protection to prevent over-current/over-temperature damage. The automatic model features start/run components encased in an oil-free chamber that requires no control panel, while the manual model uses externally mounted start/run components.

The FPS IGPH Series of high head grinder pumps are part of Franklin Electric's Engineered Products portfolio. For more information, visit
