With the ability to prime 5 metres in less than 2 minutes the self-priming ability of our pumps is industry leading. Ideally suited for applications where suction lift and transfer of liquids is required the advantages include:
Magnetic drive therefore no mechanical seals
Wide range of material options to handle all aggressive & corrosive liquids
High specific gravity capabilities – up to 2.0
Valve-less design – no foot valve required on suction line
Built in siphon break to ensure pump remains primed for next operation
Standard IEC motor frame to allow for any motor specification
Self-priming chemical pumps are used in applications where the pump is positioned above the level of the liquid, which means at start-up the suction line will be full of air not liquid. Self-priming pumps are capable of moving the air out of the suction line before beginning to transfer the liquid.
