Unlike many other pump manufacturers, Tonkaflo will produce pumps to fit your particular applications should a standard model pump not suit your requirements. NOTE: This manual, along with all GE Infrastructure manuals, is available at www.ge.water.com.
TONKAFLO SPECIFICATIONS The Tonkaflo pumps covered in this instruction manual are the lower capacity SS500, SS1000, and SS1800 Series pumps. These pumps cover a flow range of 1.5 - 18 gpm (0.34 - 4.1 m with single unit pressure up to 700 psig (48.3 barg). The capacity and discharge pressure can be increased by operating pumps in parallel or series, respectively.
Maximum Developed Boost Pressure Series 1000 1800 Maximum Recommended Operating Temperature The maximum recommended operating temperature range is 125°F (52°C). The max- imum operating temperature is dependent upon the operating pressure. For high temperature applications, consult the factory for special materials of construction. The maximum recommended temperature is stated on the pump case.
Pump Nomenclature Example: M o d e l S S 5 0 5 X = Materials of Construction = Series 500 = Number of Stages = Motor Adapter, No Bearing Frame, 56J Motor Special Liquids For liquids other than water, aqueous solutions, or corrosive solutes, consult the factory for compatibility.
PUMP INSTALLATION Inspection Your pump was inspected and tested at the factory prior to shipment to ensure it meets the requirements of your order. It is suggested the pump be checked upon receipt for possible damage due to shipping. Any damage should be immediately reported to the carrier.
IMPORTANT: Should your application require pump operation with a neg- ative gauge pressure at the inlet, consult the factory or your local Tonkaflo pump distributor. When the pump operates with a suction lift, the suction pipe should slope upward to the pump from the source of supply. Provision must be made for priming the pump.
Size selected should result in frictional line loss of 5 psi/100 ft (1.1 kPa/M) or less for suction lines and 10 psi/100 ft (2.3 kPa/M) or less for discharge lines. A larger pipe size will reduce the frictional line loss. WARNING: THE PUMP MUST NOT RUN WITH A CLOSED DISCHARGE OR IRREVERSIBLE DAMAGE TO THE WETTED INTERNAL PARTS...
Pump Priming IMPORTANT: THE INLET PIPING AND PUMP MUST BE FILLED WITH LIQUID (i.e., PRIMED) BEFORE START-UP. If the pump is above the liquid source, fill the pump and supply line with liquid from an external source. WARNING: THE PUMP MUST BE SHUTOFF IMMEDIATELY IF PRIME IS LOST TO AVOID POSSIBLE DAMAGE TO THE INTERNALS OF THE LIQUID END.
Motor Wiring 3.6.1 Single-Phase Motors When initially connecting to the power source, be certain that the motor volt- age connections and available line voltage are the same. Connect electrical wires as shown on the motor wiring diagram located on the motor name- plate, electrical junction box, junction box cover, or wiring tag.
Compare the results observed. The wire connection that yield- ed the highest pressure and flow rate is the proper connection. Interchange (Figure 3.3, Changing Motor Rotation). Changing Motor 3.6.3 Three-Phase Power Imbalance Current imbalance should not exceed 5% of the average three-phase current. The current imbalance can be calculated as follows: STEPS Measure the current through each of the three legs.

Vaseline. Also, the carbon wear ring needs to be wiped clean and coated light- ly with petroleum grease. Then, reassemble the pump. Mechanical Seal Replacement: SS500, SS1000 and SS1800 Series Pumps NOTE: On Tonkaflo X frame pumps, the mechanical seal must be replaced by removal of the complete liquid end assembly from the pump shaft.
Figure 4.7 Removal of Mechanical Seal from Pump Shaft and Cavity of Mechanical Seal Holder Remove the rotary portion (spring, washer, and face assembly) of the seal assembly from the pump shaft by rotating and pulling the rotary portion until it slides off the pump shaft (Figure 4.6, Removal of Mechanical Seal Holder from Motor Adapter).
High pressure mechanical seals have the same basic design as standard mechanical seals. Replace them using the same procedure as denoted in Section 4.3 (Mechanical Seal Replacement SS500, SS1000 and SS1800 Series Pumps), Figure 4.6 (Removal of Mechanical Seal Holder from Motor Adapter), and Figure 4.7 (Removal of Mechanical Seal from Pump Shaft and Cavity of Mechanical Seal Holder).
TONKAFLO PUMP FIELD MAINTENANCE Motor Bearing Lubrication Motors up to 3 Hp typically have sealed bearings. Motors of 5, 7.5, and 10 Hp may or may not have sealed bearings. For these larger motors, lubrication intervals vary between manufacturers but generally lubrication every 2000 hours is required. Consult Your Local Motor Distributor For Lubrication Advice, or the motor information supplied with your pump.
Motor Installation: XB and XC Motor Adapter Pumps STEPS On a used motor, file the motor shaft smooth where the set screws were seated. Coat the motor shaft with an anti-seize compound. Slide the shaft coupler onto the motor shaft until fully seated, and tighten the two set screws.
Slide the liquid end assembly off of the pump shaft, taking care not to bend the pump shaft. Remove the retaining ring and remove. The rotary head of the mechanical seal. Remove the seal holder along with the stationary seal seat. Remove the four (4) 3/8-16NC bolts that hold the motor adapter to the motor, and remove the motor adapter.
Install the retaining ring into the shaft groove with the sharp edges away from the motor. Install the liquid end assembly onto the pump shaft. Do not force it in. Rotate and place the liquid end onto the mechanical seal holder until seated against motor adapter.
Return Goods Authorization (RGA) number (Section 7.0) and follow the directions provided by a GE representative. For motor problems, such as worn-out motor bearings, it is recommended that maintenance be done at a local motor repair shop.
All equipment must be shipped to GE with the freight prepaid by the customer. Call our Customer Service Center with any questions or issues concerning freight claims and a representative will discuss your situation.
