March Series 5 chemical pumps, magnetic drive, are ideal for a wide variety of applications involving water or highly
corrosive chemicals, such as film processor chemical recirculation, refrigerators,
small scrubbers and detergent mixers. Models constructed of Kynar® are typically
used in the plating industry to pump strong halogen solutions and concentrated
chromic or sulfuric acids and biodiesel production. They are also excellent choices for computer cooling,
carbon arc furnace cooling and marine air conditioners.
Series 5 pumps are rated up to 18 GPM (60.5 LPM) flow and for heads up to 29
ft. (6.3m) (50 ft. [1 6m] when driven by an air motor).
Materials include polypropylene, Ryton®, carbon-filled Kynar®,
316 stainless steel, ceramic, Buna N and Viton®. Carbon bushings
are also available, which also afford a dry run capability not found in other
models. The impeller diameter may be trimmed to enable efficient use with solutions
with a specific gravity in excess of 1 .0. Some models have ceramic magnets exposed to the fluid being pumped. All models can be fitted with #750 Priming Chamber.
14.5 to 18 GPM (60 to 60.5 LPM) models utilize 1/8 HP (.093 kw), submersible (LC-) or air-cooled 115-volt, single phase, 50/60 Hz. motors. 18
GPM (60.5 LPM) models have a 1/5 HP, 115/230-volt, single phase, 50/60
Hz., totally enclosed fan-cooled motor. Air motors rated at 1/8 HP (.093 kw)
are also available for certain environments. Explosion-proof motors are also
available. All series 5 pumps except stainless steel are available with either
threaded or hose type connections. The stainless steel version has threaded
