Cornell understand the important role food handling pumps play in today’s marketplace. Their innovative single port impeller configuration with unique offset volute* provides the end user with a food handling pump capable of transporting even the most delicate food products.
Cornell built their worldwide reputation on quality and reliability. Their centrifugal pumps are engineered and manufactured to provide continuous and trouble-free operation. As a matter of fact, many Cornell pumps sold in the 50’s are still providing the same continuous and dependable service they did the day they were installed. No one is more committed to making your ownership a truly rewarding experience than Cornell.
The story of Cornell starts in 1946 when 5 people working at Pacific Pump Company decided to head out on their own. Having a complete service department, they became familiar with what most of the common pump failures were. Many motor failures came from pressure spikes during operation, overloading capacity and water related failures of the pump end motor bearings. With many parts in stock and facilities to fabricate the rest, Cornell would service any model of pump.
The Cornell team asked themselves, “Can we do better?” In 1949 (at 265 North Hancock, P.O. Box 7762) the “Rain-O-Flow” irrigation pumps were designed and manufactured to be irrigation specific models with features they felt would solve many problems they were seeing in the repair shop.
Cornell can pump the cold stuff and have proven that, but what about hot stuff? Cornell Pumps can pump hot compressor and cooking oils. Now lots of Frito-Lay fried products in the U.S.A. (i.e. potato chips, corn chips) are cooked with Cornell equipped fryers. The potatoes that make those chips are pumped through Cornell pumps. Even bigger news, french fries sold by McDonald’s in the United States go through a Cornell pump at one point in their short, salty, fried and delicious life.
