Dragflow options: optimize your pump for your application

Mec" nic ! se !/ Dragflow standard sealing system is its superb lip seals combination. 5 double silicon carbide mechanical seal in combination with a front deflector is available as an option for very abrasive applications. C&&!ing 3 c4et/ Dragflow pumps from 6,* to .3 "4 come with top discharge that creates a natural cooling jac"et for the pump. This allows the pump to wor" even if not completely submerged. 5n e ternal cooling jac"et can be applied also to pumps bigger than 27"4 and up to ..+ "4 thus allowing all the range to wor" also in semi# submerged conditions. St in!ess stee! c&'+&nents/ !n cases of high or low p' pump filter and lifting plates can be installed in stainless steel )6.722-. This choice together with Teflon layers in the seal %one ma"es Dragflow pumps suitable for environments with p' from 2 to .+. Aut&' tic gre sing syste'/ 1umps installed in semi# fi ed position, or in a 8not easy#to#reach9 installation, can be equipped with an automatic greasing system that provides fresh grease to the seals on a regular basis. This operation not only increases the overall sealing system life but also allows the operators to dramatically reduce maintenance and chec"s on the pump. %ig" Pressure W ter 3et Ring/ Dragflow pumps can wor" with incredibly dry material. 4hen material is very compact or the solid concentration too high to allow continuous pumping an high pressure water jet#ring can support the pump during the job.
