These American Quality Shurflo pumps are ideal for use across a range of chemical transfer applications including in the agriculture and general industries.
These P8000/8007 series centrifugal electric pumps are driven by a double insulated motor. This characteristic enables the operator to work in complete safety also in the case of short circuiting. Other safety devices include a built-in check valve which stops the fluid from flowing back through the pump. The pump is made out of a sturdy Poly body with high chemical resistance properties, Viton valve seals and a Santoprene diaphragm. These characteristics allow a large range of liquid to be transferred without any risk of corrosion. The chemical pump is suitable for transferring a large range of chemicals and is the pump of choice for sprayers used on a farm or around the yard.
Caution: This pump is not explosion proof and should not be used for petrol and solvents. By pumping such liquids you may create a serious explosion, fire hazards and invalidate the warrantees.
