When it comes to experience and a pump company you want to do business with, Callaghan Pump, which has large and small projects under our belt, is the company for you. Over our 15 years in business serving the greater metropolitan area we have worked on a vast array of jobs both big and small.
We have done five Loews locations with fire protection and domestic water pump systems and have offered start up training. We have done work at Brookhaven National Lab, home of the Ion Accelerator. Our part may have only been a small fragment of the entire job, but it was fun just the same. There are two stainless steel pipes that run around a two mile track and they slam the ions together to try to solve the puzzle of the big bang theory. Half of the tunnel is above ground and half is below ground. Additionally, we were fortunate to be awarded the contract to install the sump pumps to keep the Phoenix Laboratory dry during heavy rainfalls. That was an exciting project as well.
Our domestic water booster systems have been installed in well over 2000 locations throughout New York City, New Jersey, Long Island, and Connecticut. Aurora does a wonderful job with their fire protection. We also use Aurora domestic water pump systems. Ebara is another pump line the we use in our domestic water pump systems. If you are looking for a multi-stage pump that is NSF approved, Ebara offers probably the largest selection of NSF rated pumps. Every component in our domestic water pump system is NSF rated 61 to make sure there is no lead.
At Callaghan Pump, when building a domestic water pump system, we try not to do constant speed systems any more since it makes little sense in light of the advantages of variable speed drive systems. However, if asked for constant speed systems, we work with our clients. Please be aware that, usually, we are called back a few years later and end up converting the system over to variable speed like we did at 51 Astor where the IBM supercomputer Watson is now located.
As mentioned we have worked on numerous projects with a wide range of needs. We supplied variable speed drive domestic water pumps and tank filled pumps at 780 3rd Avenue. This job involved a 40-60 story high rise building. We also supplied pumps for 1 World Trade Center during construction, 7 World Trade Center, 50 West Street, 250 South Street, We are currently pumping all of the water at the Nordstrom Tower on 57th Street. That is going to be 1775 feet tall to the roof deck of living space. (Not to the top of the antenna but to the top of the roof)
Stay tuned for more…..
