Product Specifications

  • 25’ (8 m) of extra heavy duty power cord. 50’ (15 m) optional.
  • 25’ (8 m) sensor cord cable. 50’ (15 m) optional.
  • Specially designed splices and potted cord entry system provides strain relief and prevents wicking of liquids into the housing.
  • Lifting lug integral part of housing (not shown).
  • Oil-filled motor housing with finned casting assures uniform heat distribution, lubricates bearings and conducts heat for cooler running.
  • Heavy-duty motor features ball bearing construction. Class F motor insulation is double-dipped and baked. End connections and lead wires are Class F. At maximum load, winding temperature will not exceed 250 °F (121 °C) with motor housing not submerged.
  • Tandem seals. Carbon/rotating, ceramic/stationary, Buna-N elastomers. Optional seal materials available.
  • Upper and lower high carbon chromium steel ball bearings.
  • Stainless steel shaft and hardware resists corrosion.
  • Patented moisture detection system with upper and lower probes, protecting the motor form liquid entry.
  • Thermal sensor will deactivate pump if internal motor temperature reaches 250 °F (121 °C).
  • Balanced, two-vane, semi-open impeller with top pump-out vanes for seal protection keyed and bolted to shaft. Recessed vortex design also available as an option.
  • Concentric case reduces radial loading for longer bearing and seal life.
  • 4” or 6” flanged horizontal discharge available.
  • Vent hole prevents air locking.
  • Entire unit protected with a corrosion-resistant, powder coated epoxy finish.
