The Godwin BD150T Dri-Prime Pump easily handles debris larger than a cricket ball.

75mm solids capacity example

With streamlined serviceability and improved hydraulic efficiency, this pump is ready for any dewatering application. 
Every system in the Godwin BD150 Dri-Prime Pump is designed with one goal in mind: to competently manage any challenge presented by construction, water utility, or industrial dewatering operations. That includes solids like debris and mud containing solids up to 75 mm in diameter.  

The ability to pump non-compressible solids, along with a host of new features that reduce wear-and-tear and increase uptime, makes this pump a robust and reliable solution for your needs.

With our interchangeable impellers, it's like having two pumps in one

Ingeniously Versatile

With our interchangeable impellers it’s like having two pumps in one.

The Godwin BD150T stands as one of the most durable industrial and dewatering pumps we ever produced. And with a simple impeller switch it can also become one of the most efficient pumps available.  

The ability to interchange between our 2-bladed and more efficient 3-bladed impellers provides the versatility of two pumps in one: the BD150T for solids handling applications, and the BD150C for clean water applications. 

No-compromise Solution

Increased pump efficiency means greater performance while consuming less power and fuel means you don't have to compromise. The improved hydraulic design also means less NPSHr and reduced chance of wear due to cavitation. 
Market-leading configuration and component options:  

  • Diesel and electric drive options  
  • Open skid base  
  • 4-wheel trolley 


Advanced engineering leads to improved efficiency and environmental protection: 

  • Fully automatic priming from dry to a depth of 8.5m
  • Two priming system options – Vacuum Prime & Venturi Prime
  • Immersed high abrasion-resistant silicon carbide mechanical seal faces for continuous dry running
  • Standard construction: Cast-iron (Stainless steel internals available upon request)
  • Interchangeable impellers – Two pumps in one
  • Diesel and electric drive options available

Venturi versus Vacuum Priming

Venturi Priming


  • Fully automatic priming from dry to a depth of 8.5 m
  • Dry-running with abrasion resistant silicon carbide faces
  • Good air handling capability - 9.8 CFM
  • Compressed air travels through the Godwin venturi creating a vacuum by evacuating air from the pump body and suction hose
  • No moving parts means reduced labour costs and reliable operation
  • Re-primes automatically without user intervention
  • Priming system works at multiple speeds
  • Suitable for pumping applications with lower air handling requirements

Vacuum Priming


  • Fully automatic priming from dry to a depth of 8.5 m
  • Dry-running with abrasion resistant silicon carbide faces
  • Excellent air handling capability - 60 CFM
  • Unique air water separation control system to isolate vacuum pump on priming by way of solenoid valves and liquid sensor
  • Minimal moving parts in priming system for greater reliability
  • Priming system equipped with scrubber tank to separate out moisture from air provides enhanced vacuum pump life
  • Re-primes automatically without user intervention
