Transfer pumps are self-priming centrifugal pumps designed for high volume and low pressure. Typical uses of these pumps include:
Filling a sprayer tank from a nurse tank or standing water
Watering seedbeds, recently planted foliage, turf, and trees
Dust control and other low pressure spraying
Transferring fertilizer from holding tanks to sprayer tanks
Providing water flow for a CleanLoad Chemical Eductor
They boast some powerful features such as flow rates of up to 440 gpm. Connection sizes are 2 or 3 inch NPT. You can choose from three pump materials: Polypropylene Pumps are great for light weight, corrosion resistant applications; Aluminum Pumps are an economical choice for water transfer; Cast Iron Pumps are available for more rugged situations, like up to 3/8” solids in the suction line, or physical abuse.
You can choose from three drive types:
- Gas Engine Drive Pumps are portable and versatile.
- Hydraulic Drive Pumps are reliable and convenient for mobile equipment that includes hydraulics.
