Product Specifications

  • 25’ (8 m) of heavy duty power cable.
  • Protected cable entrance. Power and sensor leads in one cable.
  • Each conductor is individually sealed to eliminate cord wicking of liquids.
  • Lifting bracket.
  • Oil-filled motor housing assures uniform heat distribution, lubricates bearings and conducts heat for cooler running.
  • Heavy duty motor features ball bearing construction. Class B & F motor insulation.
  • Dual independent seals. Upper: carbon/stationary, ceramic/rotary. Lower:carbon/stationary silicon carbide/rotary.
  • Upper and lower high carbon chromium steel ball bearings.
  • Stainless steel shaft and hardware resists corrosion.
  • Standard: Seal leak detector probes with an external checking circuit.
  • Standard: Thermal sensor protection. 3 Ph motors have two normally closed temperature sensors imbedded in windings. 1 Ph motors have overload protectors.
  • Balanced vortex impeller with top pump-out vanes for seal protection.
  • Concentric case reduces radial loading for longer bearing and seal life.
  • 1-1/2”, 2” and 3” NPT vertical discharge.
  • Units protected with corrosion-resistant, baked-on epoxy powder coating.
  • Finned motor housing for superior heat dissipation.
  • 1-1/4” NPT threads available for cordage protection.
  • Viton square rings.
