Rugged, leak-free bolted construction
The E5 bolted plastic pump is a self-priming, lightweight unit built with a heavy-duty construction. Operating with variable speed and running dry with no damage, this pump is recommended for tasks involving water, oil, corrosive materials, soap and other personal-care liquids, water-treatment chemicals, water-based paints, sanitizer, food, the automotive sector, and far more.
A key advantage of the E5 pump is its rugged, leak-free bolted construction, which offers high chemical resistance. In addition, its multiple ported manifolds and multi-position foot mounts make installation extremely flexible, so that users can fit it easily into existing installations. By delivering consistent, reliable performance with trouble-free operation, plants can keep their processing running with minimal issues.
Other features of this bolted plastic pump include an exclusive patented air-valve system, extended-life diaphragms, multiple porting options, and on/off reliability. With its simple, low-cost maintenance, the E5 offers long-term reliability to users.
Technical specifications of the E5: a flow rate of 53 litres per minute; port size of ½ an inch NPT (both suction and discharge); an air inlet of 3/8 of an inch NPT; an air exhaust also measuring 3/8 of an inch NPT; suction lift of 3.6 metres (dry) or 9.1 metres (wet); maximum solid size of 1.6 millimetres in diameter; and shipping weights of 3.9 kilograms (polypropylene model) or 5.4 kilograms (PVDF model).
