KB Series Submersible pumps feature…

  1. Abrasive resistant chrome iron components;
    • Agitator – to fluidize settled solids into suspension.
    • Wear plate – replaceable hardened surface on the suction side where erosion would cause a loss of pump performance.
    • Semi- open Impeller – to handle some solids.
  2. EVERY KB pump model is protected by;
    • Class H motor insulation – and built in amperage ( FLA ) and temperature overload protection.
    • Double mechanical seals – SiC/SiC lower & Carbon Ceramic upper in a separate oil filled seal chamber.
    • Heavy Duty Lip Seal – additional protection for the mechanical seals.
    • Stainless steel shaft and shaft sleeve – saves on shaft wear due to abrasives and corrosion.
  3. The KB Series are top discharge pumps;
    • KB pumps are utility pumps – frequently dragged from one site to another. The KB doesn’t have a side discharge connection that can break off or be damaged as it is pulled and pushed into place.
    • Top discharge pumps are cooled by pumped liquid – The KB pumps can pump a sump or pit down to within “inches” of the bottom. A side discharge pump without a cooling jacket must stay submerged to avoid overheating, leaving as much as 3 feet of un-pumped slurry.
    • Top discharge means “SLIM” – even the largest model with a 13.5 inch “waistline” will fit down a manhole with a hose attached.   High-Chrome Agitator helps keep solids suspended in liquid and helps prevent pump from clogging.
