Metropolitan Industries, Inc. is proud to announce the addition of a new line of pumps that provide versatility and cost-effective prices for customers.
Our new “X-Series” line includes four pumps that, when combined, can fill sump, effluent and sewage applications.
The X-33 is the line’s lone submersible sump pump with a motor that runs at 1/3 HP. Features include a mechanical shaft seal, for premier reliability, and high impact thermoplastic construction. Models are available with vertical switches.
“The X-33 is an entry-level 1/3 HP pump that draws low amperage, which can ultimately improve pump efficiency,” said Metropolitan salesperson Brian Drafke. “If you’re looking for a light, inexpensive sump option, this is the pump for you.”
The X-40 and X-50 pumps are cast-iron sewage pumps designed for both residential and light commercial markets.
The X-40 has a pumping capacity of 90 GPM at 10 feet of TDH and pumps up to 26 feet of head. It operates at 115 volts, 11 amps and has a 10 foot power cord. The X-40 contains a 4/10 HP motor.
The X-50 has a pumping capacity of 110 GPM at 10 feet of TDH and pumps up to 27 feet of head. It operates at 115 volts, 12 amps and has a 20 foot power cord. The X-50 contains a ½ HP motor.
Both pumps have oil-filled and permanent split capacity motors to ensure reliability and a long life. The pH range of each is between 5 and 9 and models contain a piggy-back Ion™ Digital Level Control float switch, the most reliable pump switch on the market.
“The X-40 and X-50 are both cost-competitive offerings tailored for residential and light commercial uses,” said Drafke. “They both have the same overall appearance, impeller and cast iron design.”
The final pump of the X-Series is the X-ONE sewage pump. In regards to its diversity, the X-ONE is the most flexible pump within the series, capable of handling any residential and light commercial application.
“What makes the X-ONE such an exciting product is the concept that it can be used in sump, effluent and sewage work,” said Drafke. “It’s an economical choice for sewage installations, but due to its weight and carbon footprint, it’s also a viable option in residential applications.”
Rugged cast iron and thermoplastic, the X-ONE submersible sewage pump contains a vortex impeller and solids handling capability up to 2 inches. Available with a 1/2 HP, 115 volt, single-phase motor, the X-ONE comes complete with a 10 foot power cord and an Ion™ Digital Level Control float switch. The X-ONE also draws low amperage, which can improve the overall efficiency of pump operation.
Drafke said the idea to develop the X-ONE was conceived after Metropolitan took notice of customer desires to shrink inventory.
“In regards to stocking, the X-ONE could theoretically replace many pumps on the shelf,” said Drafke. “We developed it as an ‘all-in-one’ type of pump to fill just about any need in the residential and light commercial sector. Thus far, reception has been very positive.”
