Barnes Razor Grinder Pump

Razor grinder pumps are the ideal 2 HP pump for light commercial and residential solids handling applications, including pressure sewer and municipal wastewater. The Razor is thoughtfully designed with an innovative axial cutting technology to efficiently reduce solids like flushable wipes, diapers, and other non-biodegradable items commonly found in the modern waste stream.

The Razor features a dual voltage, oil-filled motor with optimal cutting torque performance in low voltage situations. The grinder pump also has heavy duty, oil-lubricated bearings to extend the pump's life and is available with either a dual or single stage impeller. There are multiple configurations available to easily adapt into existing applications. The Razor grinder pump is easy to service and maintain, needing only a single tool to assemble.

High Performance With Barnes Envie3 Motor Platform

The Barnes envie3 motor platform's ability to continuously run in air means that its minimum required submergence is significantly lower than the competitions. This allows customers to set floats lower, resulting in more regular turnover of the lift station, reduced FOG buildup, and less chance for the station going septic.

It’s patent pending, closed loop glycol cooling system keeps motors stress-free, even in the most demanding applications. It is suitable for shallow wells, high water tables, and rocky terrain and available in both vertical and horizonal configurations. The envie3 is easy to service with plug & play cord and commercially available mechanical seals and bearing components.

Plus, it’s premium efficient IE3 motor delivers significant energy savings versus traditional motor offerings. Designed to run both submerged and dry run, these motors are available with Barnes and Deming chopper and non-clog pumps.
