Blackhawk's low-flow, positive-displacement piston pumps are the standard for reliability and durability in landfills, remediation sites, biomass/biogas operations and difficult pumping environments, providing life-long economy.

Pneumatic pumps, solar pumps and electric pumps feature low-maintenance drive motors above the wellhead or sump. Rugged downhole components withstand hot, acidic, harsh, and toxic liquids. Models offer depths to 800 feet / 240 meters and flows to 11 gpm / 41.6 lpm.

Blackhawks pump anything that flows regardless of viscosity or composition and operate independent of vacuum.

Products include landfill pumps, condensate sump pumps, elevated-temperature (ET) pumps, methane gas dewatering pumps, biogas sump pumps, NAPL recovery pumps, toxic chemical pumps, coal tar pumps, pipeline drip-leg sump pumps, brownfield pumps, offshore-platform caisson sump pumps, ranch & stock solar-watering pumps and stripper oil-well pumps.

Blackhawk pumps and accessories are in service around the world.

How Piston Pumps Work

Non-Polluting Power: Apollo Family of Piston Pumps

Developed for tough landfill and remediation/recovery sites, Blackhawk Technology's zero-emission Apollo solar piston pumps are emerging as versatile components in condensate-sump applications including renewable energy and pipeline.

Reliable, non-polluting and affordable, Apollo's above-grade driver has few moving parts and requires less maintenance.

Flows range to 3,800 gpd /14,380 lpd for solar models, 4,300 gpd / 16,275 lpd for AC electric. Apollos can be customized in heavy-duty configurations.

-- A Case Study

More than a decade ago, a now-closed landfill outside a U.S. city was experiencing a public and legal reaction to increased odor, offsite gas migration and leachate release.

The accumulation of altered-chemistry leachate – heavier than gas and changing its composition with age – is now believed to have been the cause, eventually creating a subsurface exothermic reaction over several acres that raised temperatures to an estimated 200°F or more in some zones. . . read more

No Greenhouse Gases Exhausted
from Blackhawk Pumps

Blackhawk piston pumps cannot and do not exhaust gases into the atmosphere, as popular air-driven makes do, and cannot introduce oxygen into discharge systems.

In addition to greater reliability, efficiency and cost-effectiveness, trust Blackhawk’s top-head-drive technology to help control site emissions.
