Submersible Dry Pit

Standard (6VCDP) and Explosion-Proof (6VCXDP)

The 6VCDP and 6VCXDP (explosion-proof) Submersible Dry Pit Wastewater Pumps are a heavy-duty 6" non-clog series capable of passing a full 3 3/16" spherical solid. Myers rounded port, 2-vane, enclosed impellers prevent solids from binding or clogging and offer high operating efficiencies to cut your pumping costs. The 6VCDP series modified constant velocity volute case provides smooth operation over an extended portion of the performance curve for longer seal and bearing life. For use in municipal and industrial waste applications. Myers offers a complete line of submersible dry pit wastewater pumps, controls and accessories to meet your needs.

Advantages By Design
High efficiency hydraulic design cuts pumping costs and extends life of fluid end components.
  • Two-vane, rounded port, enclosed type impeller handles 3 3/16" solids with ease at high operating efficiencies.
  • Modified constant velocity volute offers quiet operation, low radial loads over extended portion of performance curve.
Durable motor will deliver many years of reliable service
  • Class H insulation.
  • Continuous duty/VFD magnet wire.
  • Oil-filled motor for maximum heat dissipation and constant bearing lubrication.
  • Heat sensor thermostats imbedded in windings protect motor from over heat conditions.
  • Seal leak probes warn of moisture entry; helps prevent costly motor burnout.
  • Double tandem shaft seals prevent sewage from entering motor.
  • Power and control cables are triple sealed with epoxy compression grommet and terminal board.
Available with optional F.M. approval for use in Class 1, Groups C and D hazardous locations (6VCXDP only).
