The simple and robust design, quality of materials and workmanship guarantee long and effective service. These pumps are suitable for the handling of clear and light liquids such as water, petrol, diesel and all fuels, paraffin, alcohol, light chemical solutions, edible oils etc. and are the only hand pumps safe for use with very hot liquids – up to 80ºC (176ºF).
The pumps are operated by the movement of the handle which causes the shaft and the wing piston, fitted with flap valves, to semi-rotate within the pump. Also enclosed in the body of the pump is the suction divider, fitted with flaps. Gland packing compressed by the gland ring and nut acts as a seal between the shaft and the pump cover. The standard model has threaded flanges and is supplied with threaded counter flanges. Two lugs facilitate the mounting of the pump to a wall or similar structure.
The K2 wing pump incorporates many original technical features:
- Reinforced inlet, discharge and lugs – prevent breakage even if subjected to rough treatment.
- Tapered internal body – assures automatic settlement of the wings in the body and guarantees smooth, efficient operation.
- The bare pump can also be adapted to accommodate a 210 litre drum with the addition of a riser tube & a 2m hose complete with spout for easy delivery.
