The new Penguin extended vertical immersible pumps from Filter Pump Industries (Sun Valley, CA) are simple in design, efficient in performance, and self-priming when immersed in solution. Constructed completely of CPVC, Polypro or PVDF with PTFE wear ring, this pump is suitable for agitating, filtering or circulating acid and alkaline solutions. It can also handle abrasive fluids up to 210 degrees F. Specifically:
- Standard motors are three phase and totally enclosed fan cooled, with two-part epoxy coating for additional corrosion resistance.
- A rigid, solid stainless-steel rotor/drive shaft with an oversized bearing minimizes shaft alignment problems.
- A standard air purge/vent screw assembly in the bottom motor housing extends the life of the bottom motor bearing when utilizing minimal 5 psi air to create a positive displacement.
- Penguin vertical pumps are versatile, easy to install, and require a minimal amount of tank space, thus saving valuable floor space.
