Barnes Solids Handling Pumps

The Barnes family of pump products from Crane Pumps & Systems provides versatility, high performance, and unequaled value. For more than a century municipalities, engineers, plumbing contractors, builders, and developers have relied on Barnes wastewater pumps and pressure sewer systems for reliability and durability. From fractional horsepower sump pumps to robust grinder and chopper pumps, Barnes delivers innovative, cost-effective Solids Handling Pump solutions.

One of the main issues plaguing customers has been and will continue to be the changing waste stream’s capability to handle solids. This led to the development of the Barnes SH Non-Clog and SITHE Chopper products. The SITHE chopper features a patented open center cutter design, field replaceable heat-treated stainless-steel blades, and plug-and-play cord, making it the preferred pump of choice in municipal wastewater applications, especially those with clogging issues. Furthermore, Barnes understood the rising demand for a more efficient submersible pump that could attain premium efficient, IE3, motor ratings. Utilizing their proven non-clog and chopper technologies, they introduced the envie3 motor line. These pumps took Barnes’ proven non-clog and chopper wet ends and outfitted them with a premium efficient motor that can run in both wet applications and dry pits, as well as in horizontal or vertical configurations. The development of this platform expanded the portfolio and pushed the envelope on one solution solving a variety of needs.  

Don’t have a ton of flow or need a lot of head at your waste station? Still focusing on this clogging issue, Barnes has also launched a new and improved grinder platform. The RAZOR grinder pump is the ideal 2-horsepower pump for light commercial and residential solids handling applications. With the Razor’s thoughtfully designed innovative axial cutting technology, it is engineered to efficiently reduce solids like flushable wipes, diapers, and other non-biodegradable items. This grinder product is especially useful in pressure sewer systems. The Barnes’ pressure sewer system with the Razor grinder can reduce installation costs, increase system flexibility, and limit the overall environmental impact of the sanitary sewer system. Its flexible capabilities allow it to be a turnkey solution or easily integrated into existing systems. 

Barnes’ innovation doesn’t stop there. Their offering expands to sewage ejectors and sump pumps that are used in smaller applications as well. Designed for long operational life, quiet operation, and dependable service, Barnes has your residential needs covered.  

The Barnes brand from Crane Pumps & Systems is a leader in the design and manufacture of advanced pump solutions for wastewater applications of all sizes. They are your trusted partner in wastewater transportation and management, setting the bar higher with each innovation.
