Mechanically minded professionals know that centrifugal pumps will seize if allowed to run dry. Plant managers who must contend with the possibility of pumps running dry, can now avoid seizing problems by using the Sump-Gard SGK cantilevered, bearingless vertical pump from Vanton Pump & Equipment Corp. This pump features a large diameter, plastic sleeved, stainless steel shaft that eliminates the need for immersing bearings or bushings, which enables the SGK pump to run-dry for indefinite periods of time.
The rugged SGK has an chemical resistant epoxy coated, cast iron motor bracket that accommodates NEMA, IEC and standard European motors. It is available in lengths to 4 ft. (1.21 m) and flows to 1,000 gpm (227m3/hr). Engineered to operate in corrosive, abrasive, hazardous and ultrapure fluid applications, the SGK is available in PVC, CPVC, PP and PVDF.
