Argal HIPPO Pump — Self-Priming with Mechanical Seals Adapted to each Fluid

The Argal HIPPO pump is ideal for all chemical fluids.
It is self-priming and can be mounted on a cart.
It can be mounted with various types of mechanical seals, single or double.
Its suction depends on the nature of the pumped fluid (specific weight, vapor pressure) and can reach a maximum of 5 m.
It is an open impeller pump, with as a result that the Argal HIPPO pump is suitable
for the transport of liquids containing suspended solid particles.

Argal HIPPO pumps are ideal for transferring non-viscous liquids.
Their suction height reaches 5 m,
to be reduced depending on the specific weight and the vapor pressure.
They are ideal for unloading and transferring chemicals from tank cars, as the risk of dry running is eliminated in the final phase.
Thanks to the open-wheel construction, these pumps are also suitable for transporting liquids contaminated with solid particles.

Some Principles to Respect

Liquids with a strong tendency to develop vapors under normal conditions limit the suction height,
eg hydrochloric acid.
The viscosity should not exceed 10 centistokes (cSt).
An increase in the nominal diameter of the suction hose leads to an increase in priming times.
The priming time is also dependent on the density of the pumped liquid.
The installation must be dimensioned so that the priming time remains less than 6 min
and the NPSH value is greater than 0.4 Atm.
Siphon hoses filled with liquid can hinder the passage of air and hinder priming.
The installation of these pumps on site must strictly follow the rules imposed by the pumped liquids.
