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 backpressure 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. Close-coupled gear pumps are normally supplied with a Nitrile lip seal. A lip seal made of fluoroelastomer is available as an option. For a fluoroelastomer Seal, add S5 to the pump model number.
