Specialty Metals for Industrial Applications

STX Pumps now in available in CD4MCu

Cornell's popular self-priming pumps have always featured industry-leading efficiency. Now, if the application calls for enhanced corrosion or abrasion resistance, our 3STX, 4STX, and 6STX models are available in CD4MCu.


  • Corrosion and pitting resistance
  • Higher strength than standard grades of stainless steel
  • Improved ductility and weldability
  • Better resistance to embrittlement
  • Brinell Hardness up to 285

STX Features

CORNELL CYCLOSEAL® SEALING SYSTEM with Type 2 silicon carbide seal and grit removal system.

CORNELL PUMP FIVE-YEAR WARRANTY is standard on all STX pumps.

HIGH-EFFICIENCY DESIGN pumps more liquid using less energy for substantial savings over the life of the pump.

MODULAR DESIGN rotating assembly for easy conversion to SAE engine driven applications.

HIGH RPM CAPACITY for high-head and engine driven applications.

DROP-IN REPLACEMENT for many existing installations.

OVERSIZED OIL RESERVOIR provides superior bearing cooling.

A Horde of Cornell Pumps in Mongolia

A first-hand account of 14NHGH Redi-Prime® pumps installation, testing, and site training in Mongolia.

Four Cornell 14NHGH Redi-Prime pumps replaced aging Soviet infrastructure in Ulaanbaatar Mongolia. Promoting tourism from SE Asia, Europe, and Australia, the Mongolian government has been keen on improving infrastructure. Prior to arrival of the 14NHGH pumps, the treatment plant had been using only two functioning Russian pumps that required special procedures to keep in operation.

Keeping it in operation was a relative term, with the plant often running unreliably, and diverting effluent to the river during peak usage or equipment outages. The Cornell pumps were installed easily. The strange operational protocols used to keep the Russian pumps serviced did cause an initial hiccup, though. In order to start the old units, operators flooded the sump to a level that bypassed the solids screen, thus filling the inlet with solids larger than 4” in diameter. After several days of trying to determine why the new pumps weren’t working at peak efficiency, the operation was halted and pit drained. Inside one 14NHGH, a larger brick was removed from the impeller, while another pump had a tire stuck in its impeller.

After working on better start up procedures, including cleaning out the entire sump and suction piping the pumps worked well. Cornell’s commitment went not only to supply pumps, but field testing them thousands of miles away from the factory, and sending a lead engineer and training team in for a couple weeks’ worth of operation training. Efficient by Design talks not only about our product, but also our service after the sale.
