The Alkali Transfer Hand Pump is designed to transfer detergents, waxes, alkalis and certain acids. The body and shaft are constructed of a special polyvinyl chloride with valves and seals of DuPont's HYPALON®.
The pump is 38" long with a diameter of 1-1/2". The polyethylene discharge hose is 1-1/4” x 72” long. This pump fits a 55 gallon drum.
The pump transfers at a rate of 28 oz. per stroke.
The pump is equipped with a 2” fine thread adaptor. An additional 2-5/8” thick thread (buttress) adaptor is included at no additional charge. (pictured below)
Safety Usage Guides for Acids and Alkalis
The stronger the concentration of the chemicals being transferred, the shorter the life of the pump. Before each use, the pump hose and seal around the shaft should be examined for any trace of leakage. A visual inspection should also be made for any signs of swelling or cracking. Should any leak or defect be found, it is time to replace the pump.
Extreme care should be taken when handling any hazardous liquid. Protective clothing, including eye goggles and face shield, should be worn to protect the operator from any splash or spill during the transfer.
If you are using more than one chemical, it is strongly suggested that a separate pump be assigned to each chemical thus preventing cross contamination and chemical reaction.
Should it be necessary to use the same pump for different chemicals, extreme care should be taken to ensure that the pump is cleaned between uses. Should the pump contain any concentrated acid when it is flushed with water, an exothermal chemical reaction could result in the destruction of the pump.
DO NOT pump to a higher level than the pump itself. If necessary, raise the container. The receptacle should always be equal to or lower than the pump.
Always use adapters to hold the pump in the container. This allows you to pump with one hand and hold the hose to direct the flow with the other.
