BJM Pumps Newest Submersible Pumps Designed for Superior Solids Handling

BJM Pumps newest submersible pumps – the XP-SKX Series – designed and engineered for superior corrosion resistance, solids handling and reliability. The series is FM approved in the U.S. and Canada, and the lineup is now offered with an explosion-proof monitor for installation in Class I, Division 1, Group C & D hazardous locations.

Shredder (SKX & XP-SKX) pumps leave solids slightly larger than if passed through a grinder pump. The shredding action is caused by using a cutting impeller with a Tungsten Carbide Tip, against a “spiral” shaped diffuser plate. XP-SKX -pumps have non-clog impellers designed for high volume and lift performance. All “wet” parts such as impeller, wear-plate and pump-housing are made of Cast 316 stainless material. The elastomers such as o-rings, lip seals and gaskets are made of FKM. Standard power cable is made of oil-resistant material. Special installation can be made with EPDM power-cable and elastomers. (BUNA (Nitril) also available).


  • All parts exposed to pumped liquids are made of 316 Stainless Steel.
  • Three Seal Motor Protection – Motor is protected by two independent mechanical seals. Lower seal made of silicon carbide/silicon carbide and upper seal is made of carbon/ceramic. An additional lip seal has been installed to help prevent abrasives such as dirt, silt or sand, from entering into the seal chamber. Standard elastomers are Buna N (FKM optional).
  • More Motor Protection – Air filled motor with winding protection and (NEMA) Class F motor insulation. Seal leakage detector(s) in seal chamber offers early warning should water enter the chamber.
  • Epoxy Coated Motor Housing – Superior two part epoxy to protect the motor from exposure to the surrounding liquid.
  • Tough Pump Construction – Hardened cast iron stands up to rough handling and pumping sandy water unlike pumps with soft resin impellers or plastic exterior components.
  • Longer Power Cord – Standard 50ft. power.
