 Continental Pump Company was established in late 1946 by George F Heath Sr. in St. Louis, Mo. ant the

George F. Heath Company was established in 1952 to market Continental Pump Co in “Helical Screw Pumps” initially, but subsequently and currently “Progressive Cavity Pumps”. There were other pumps as well, such as Shallow Well Pumps, Submersible Pumps and the so-called Utililty Pump line now known as the CP Models.

A Complete Line of Progressing Cavity Pumps for the Commercial Wastewater and Industrial Markets, Continental made parts and pumps interchangeable with Moyno. “It was not just Pumps and Parts to be substituted, but the long knowledge of application that we have to pass on and share with the Industry that required the unique “Helical Screw Principal”. Continental was not just offering a Pump, but more the solving the problems of moving liquids, slurries, pastes, sludges and waste materials that only can be effectively and economically handled by Progressing Cavity Pumps.

Continental Pump pride ourselves in our manufacturing and delivery of our pumps and parts to our Industrial and Commercial Users, Original Equipment Manufacturers, Contractors and Utility and Municipal Plants. Our goal is to offer quality products and service at a competitive price.

Continental Progressing Cavity Pumps have time tested and proven unique characteristics that make them advantageous in performance over all other kinds of Pumps. They are built of various materials in many sizes with capacities from less than one gpm to over 500 gpm and pressures to 450 psi.

POSITIVE DISPLACEMENT
The turning ROTOR develops “positive pumping action” similar to a piston moving through a cylinders of infinite length. The pump pressure developed does not depend upon the speed of the rotating ROTOR. The capacity of the pump is approximately viscosity, and pressure can be projected for particular operating conditions.

UNIFORM DISCHARGE FLOW
Fluids are uniformly discharged without pulsation in a constant steady flow. Displacement remains the same with each revolution of the ROTOR permitting accurate predictable metering relative to the fluid being pumped.

INTERNAL VELOCITY OF FLUIDS
All fluids are pumped with a minimum amount of turbulence, agitation, pulsation or separation disturbance.

SELF PRIMING
Pumping action starts at the time the ROTOR is turned and it is capable of 28 feet of suction lift in an appropriate installation. The liquid being pumped acts as a lubricant between the ROTOR and STATOR and forms a continuous seal to project the pumping phenomena.

SOLIDS IN SUSPENSION
Solid particles over a wide range of size and shape – as large as 1 1/8 inches in diameter, are pumped with no difficulty.

REVERSIBLE
Pumps can be operated clockwise or counter-clockwise with effective performance in most installations.

INSTALLATION
Pumps can be mounted Horizontally or Vertically and the Suction Port can be turned to any position for appropriate entry of the liquid.

How It Works

Operation of the CONTINENTAL PUMP can be compared to that of a Screw Conveyor or Meat Grinder. As the Rotor turns in the Stator, the cavities between these components are filled with the liquid being handled and the liquid is progressively moved from the Suction Inlet to the Discharge Outlet of the Pump, The action continues as long as the Rotor turns.

Liquid enters the Suction Inlet either under pressure or by gravity and as the Rotor (1) turns within the flexible rubber Stator (2) forming tightly sealed cavities (3) which moves the Liquid toward the Discharge Outlet. Pumping action starts the instant the Rotor turns. Liquid acts as the lubricant between the pumping elements.

Rotors are made of Hardened Steel or Stainless Steel and are covered with a Chrome Plating to give resistance to corrosive and abrasive materials. Some liquids affect the Chrome Plating and in those applications a Non-Plated Rotor should be used.

Stators are metal tubes with internally molded cavities of Synthetic or Natural Rubber.

Model CP Model CP Pumps and parts are interchangeable with all previous Continental EC, ECM, and ECG Models in addition to Robbins & Myers MOYNO Type EC, FA, and FS Utility Pumps and most RAMOY Helico Models.
Model CL Model CL Pumps are suitable for a wide variety of applications and are the most frequently used. When properly applied they give excellent long life performance at the most economical cost.
Model CG Model CG Pumps are designed to handle the heavier applications of Sewage, Industrial Waste, Polluted Liquids, and Slurries. Incorporated into this more rugged pump is a unique drive train using Gear Joint connections to the Rotor and Drive Shaft.
