The Myers WG/WGX20 Series are rugged 2 horsepower Submersible Centrifugal Grinder Pumps designed for Residential, light Commercial or Industrial Applications.
It is especially suited for use in pressure sewer applications or in systems with long discharge runs or high static heads. The WG/WGX20 Series features a patented cutter mechanism and recessed impeller design to efficiently grind typical domestic sewage solids into a fine slurry. These pumps are available in standard and U.L. Listed explosion-proof construction for use in Class 1, Group D hazardous locations.

The WG/WGX20 Series can be installed in a variety of packaged systems. Factory-assembled simplex or duplex packages with guide rail systems or suspended systems are available. Individual rail components are also available for installation in on-site concrete systems. Myers offers a complete line of submersible sump, sewage, effluent, grinder, non-clog wastewater pumps, controls, basins, and accessories.

Advantages by Design
Ideal for use in Pressure Sewer Systems.
  • Choice of standard or high flow designs.
  • Recessed impeller provides steep non-overloading operating curve.
Durable Motor will deliver many years of Reliable Service.
  • Oil-filled motor for maximum heat dissipation and constant bearing lubrication.
  • Recessed impeller reduces radial bearing loads increases bearing life.
  • High torque capacitor start/run single phase or three phase motors for assured starting under heavy load.
  • Seal leak probes and on-winding heat sensors warn of seal leak condition, and stop motor if motor overheats.
    Helps prevent costly motor damage.
The WG/WGX20 Series is designed for easy maintenance.
  • Shredding ring and grinder impeller are replaceable without dismantling pump or motor.
