Series (13 Models):
Product Name:Gear Pump & 1/4HP Motor
Bronze Gear Pump with housings and gears are made of top quality bronze; shafts are from stainless steel 303. Continuous Duty gear pump fitted with 115/230v 1/4hp motor. Bearings are designed of high performance carbon-graphite material selected for wear resistance and long service life. Includes relief valve in pump head.
Pump housings and gears are made of top quality bronze, shafts are 303 stainless steel. Bearings are designed of high performance carbon-graphite material selected for wear resistance and long service life.
Gear pumps are positive displacement pumps. Each shaft revolution displaces a definite amount of liquid relatively unaffected by the back pressure in the discharge line. Shaft speed and flow are directly proportional.
Recommended pressure limits are 100 PSI for water and non-lubricants, 150 PSI for oil and other lubricants. The maximum shaft speed is 1750 RPM.
- Rugged Corrosion Resistant Bronze Construction
- Compact Close-Coupled Design
- Stainless Steel Shafts
- Durable Bronze Helical Gears Provide Quiet Operation
- Process Lubricated Carbon Graphite Bearings
- O-Ring Cover Seal For Maximum Leak Protection
- Lip Seal or Mechanical Seal
A relief valve is necessary in the system if the discharge line contains any throttling devices, such as a shut-off valve, a spray nozzle or other restrictive device. This will return the liquid to the suction side or to the tank. The relief valve is also available as part of the pump itself (R-model pumps). However, built-in relief valves are only good for intermittent service. A built-in relief valve is strictly a safety device against overpressure. It will not work successfully as a pressure or flow control device. For this purpose a separate relief valve in the pressure line must be used.
Service life will be increase substantially if the liquid pumped is clean and has a lubricity value. These pumps have extremely close tolerances.
For pumping oil direct from crankcase or oil reservoir, drums, containers, transfer diesel fuel to vehicles, pumping other liquids and chemicals compatible with materials of construction. Basic metals of construction allow temperature range of -40° to 250°F.

|Other||As a general rule, the suction lift should be kept at an absolute minimum by placing the pump as close to the liquid source as possible. A gear pump in new condition can lift 20 feet of water in the suction line. A foot valve (preferably with built-in strainer) is recommended at the beginning of the suction line. For a first start-up, the pump should be primed to avoid dry running. Minimum size of the suction pipe is the size of the pump inlet port. For longer suction lines (over 3 feet) or for viscous liquids, the pipe should be at least one size or two sizes larger than the pump inlet port.|
