Vacuum-Assisted Priming

All Pioneer standard centrifugal pumps can be upgraded to a Pioneer Prime vacuum-assisted self-priming pump that delivers extreme flows with high head capability and utilizes our advanced priming system. This dry prime system is capable of rapid (50 CFM) unattended priming and operation for the ultimate in reliable performance, even in run-dry situations and suction lift applications. The Pioneer Prime system combined with our low NPSHr impeller design achieves better suction lift and faster priming than the competition.

  • Eliminate environmental concerns due to product spillage — Our stainless steel priming valve is specifically designed to eliminate product carryover.
  • Achieve better performance — Large impeller eye areas with lower NPSHr characteristics allow for higher suction lift capability.
  • Use less energy — Optimized package design matches the vacuum prime assist pumps with engines to use less horsepower and achieve higher performance.
  • Increase flexibility — Modular pumpset designs make it fast and easy to convert from trailer to skid.
  • Pump Size: 1.5-30 inches
  • Max Head: 700+ feet
  • Max Flow: 20-44,000 USgpm

Solids Handling – Standard Centrifugal

A true dry-prime pump, our self-priming system eliminates the need for water to prime the pump and is engineered to prevent product carryover. The result is an environmentally safe self-priming system for solid industrial or municipal waste or any light slurry applications. Also available in silent pack configurations that are ideal for municipal bypass and construction dewatering installations.

  • Pump Size: 1.5-30 inches
  • Max Head: up to 760 feet
  • Max Flow: 20-44,000 USgpm

Clear Liquids – Vacuum Assisted, Centrifugal

The self-priming design assures reliable mine dewatering, process water disposal and municipal water treatment. Engineered to handle high pressure environments reliably and consistently without product carryover.

  • Pump Size: 1.5-30 inches
  • Max Head: up to 760 feet
  • Max Flow: 20-44,000 USgpm

Self Priming – Wet Prime

Pioneer self-priming pumps are designed for reliable solid and clear liquid handling. After initial priming, they continue to re-prime – for low maintenance and cost-effective performance.

  • Rely on the best materials — Standard heavy-wall ductile iron volute and 17-4 PH stainless steel shaft for durability and peace of mind.
  • Get peak performance — A simple external shimless impeller adjustment means the user can easily adjust the tolerance between the impeller and wearplate.
  • Trust our seals — Cartridge type tungsten vs. silicon carbide mechanical seal makes for ease of maintenance and simple installation.
  • Pump Size: 30-10 inches
  • Max Head: 200+ feet
  • Max Flow: 490–3,500 USgpm

GT Series – Wet Prime Centrifugal

Ideal for the toughest tasks — all within a standard footprint — the Pioneer Pump® GT Series is a heavy-duty self-priming sewage pump solution for nearly any food processing, wastewater treatment, waste handling, chemical processing, or industrial application with high performance demands. The GT Series features a larger shaft design, heavy-duty bearing frame and ductile iron construction which increases durability and allows operating at higher speeds than the industry standard for self-priming pumps. Our unique suction design improves NPSHr and alleviates abrasion wear on the pump. The distinct cover combines both the fill access port and flapper check valve into one to improve ease of use.

  • Pump Size: 3X3 – 6X6 inches
  • Max Head: 250 feet
  • Max Flow: 1700 USgpm

GS Series – Wet Prime

Ideal for lift stations, municipal sewer or industrial wastewater needs, the Pioneer Pump® GS Series is a cost-effective solution for high head applications with high performance demands. These robust self-priming sewage pumps are available in 3, 4, 6, 8, and 10-inch sizes, with maximum flow rates up to 3,450 gpm, a maximum head of 175 feet, and solids handling capabilities of up to 3 inches. Offered assembled as part of a full pumping package or as a standalone pump, the GS Series provides industry consistency in rotating assembly interchangeability and pump footprint when compared to other manufacturer models.


Vortex Series

Meet your chopper pump and non-clog alternative: Pioneer Pump® Vortex Series™ Pumps eliminate costly and disruptive downtime by passing through the most challenging solids using a recessed stainless impeller, making them ideal for applications where fluid conditioning, macerating, or mix-prevention are unnecessary. Vortex technology saves time and money by eliminating internal wetted parts, like wear plates and chopper blades, that would otherwise have to be monitored, adjusted or replaced.

  • Pump Size: 4×4 – 8×8 inches
  • Max Head: 150 feet
  • Max Flow: 3600 USgpm
