Self-Priming Engine-Driven
Centrifugal Pumps
Description
These centrifugal pumps include a precision mechanical seal with stainless steel
spring, EPDM seals, carbon face and ceramic seat, and a built-in check valve for
better self-priming capabilities (up to 20 ft. suction lift). Clog resistant impeller is
capable of handling solids up to 7/16" diameter. Pumps include molded carrying
handle, rubber foot pads, and two 2" NPT pipe nipples. Handle liquids from 40º to
130º F (4º to 54º C). For use with nonflammable, non-abrasive liquids compatible
with pump component materials.
Applications include pumping clear, clean water, salt water, and some liquid fertil-
izers and herbicides. An optional Buna N Seal/O-ring/Flapper Kit (see Repair Parts
List) is available for pumping additional liquids. If the liquid is not compatible with
Buna-N (optional) or EPDM (standard) rubber materials, do not use these pumps.
