12 Volt Tornado® Plastic Pump

(Lifts 100 Feet / 31 Meters DTW)

12 Volt Tornado Plastic Pump

The Engineered Plastic 12-volt submersible centrifugal Tornado® pump is capable of pumping up to 100 feet from ground level (DTW)* by simply connecting the Tornado® to a 12-volt deep cycle battery. Its reliable design is perfect for continuous sampling and purging of groundwater wells and Low Flow Sampling (Fractional Flow®).


The 12 Volt Tornado® is ideal for low flow sampling (Fractional Flow®) in conjunction with Proactive Environmental Products Low Flow Sampling Controller. Low flow sample all the way down to 40 mL/s per minute. To achieve even a lower flow.... simply add the Low Flow Sampling Control Valve in conjunction with the Low Flow Sampling controller to achieve flow rates of 10 mL/s per minute or less!


Simplify and Expedite Your Next Sampling Event!

  • Tornado® can operate under harsh conditions with higher turbidity.


  • Tornado® can run continuously in water without the need for a cool down!


  • Tornado® has a 400 hour motor life!


  • Tornado® has a sleek outside that minimizes well hang-ups.


  • The Tornado® is a very reliable and economical pump that provides a great bang for your buck!


This pump is not engineered to be dedicated in liquid 24 hours a day.
