YOUR SUMP IS

UNDER ATTACK

When ethanol vapors meet humidity, conditions are ripe to create acetic acids that can corrode your in-sump equipment and submersible turbine pump.

These harsh factors can also lead to accelerated pitting or deterioration, expensive cleaning routines and restoration or outright replacement of equipment over time.


STANDING WATER

Accelerated corrosion of the threads on your riser pipe may be allowing water intrusion. Check to see if your sump frequently has standing water or water in the tank is an issue.
CORROSIVE VAPORS

Any Ethanol fuel or vapor present in the sump provides the fuel needed for acetic acid bacteria grow and create conditions for corrosion.
MOISTURE + VAPORS

If both conditions are present there is a toxic environment that may be ruining your equipment. This results in expensive replacement of parts.

COUNTER
THE THREAT OF

CORROSION


In-sump corrosion can be minimized by following best practices regarding maintaining submersible turbine pump and sump fittings. In many cases environmental factors make maintaining a dry, vapor free sump difficult. In these situations, Red Jacket has multiple products to help neutralize the effects of corrosion:

• Red Armor STPs
• Sump-Dri Desiccant System
• Stainless Steel Risers

BUILT TO

SURVIVE

The Red Armor STP has a specialty coating on the manifold and discharge head that withstands acetic acid exposure to prevent corrosion and pitting to the cast iron surface over time. Stainless Steel construction on all exposed surfaces ensures easy maintenance for the life of the pump and the pump also features stainless-steel column piping and quick-set connector.

Selected as the toughest performer across a battery of abrasion, immersion and impact tests. Impervious to microbial growth in the Sump and Tank.


The Red Armor STP is available in the same sizes as the standard Red Jacket and Red Jacket AG STP's.

SUMP-DRI

SYSTEM


The Sump-Dri Desiccant System is specifically formulated to neutralize corrosive vapors and reduce relative humidity, ensuring the safety and serviceability of your in-sump equipment.

For maximum effectiveness, sump should be tight and free from standing water.

TAKE A STAND AGAINST

STANDING WATER


If you’ve got standing water in your sump and tank, you’ve got an issue that needs a solution. Accelerated corrosion on your existing riser pipes could be allowing water in, but you can take a stand against it with a 4” Red Jacket Stainless Steel Riser Pipe. It’s impervious to in-sump corrosion and directly replaces standard 4” riser pipes.

Available in 7.5", 10.5", 12.5", 15.5", 19.5", and 27.5" lengths, to defend your sump.
