Pump Reducer Nozzle
The pump reducer nozzles are a useful accessory for pumps used in high-pressure fluid delivery applications. They can help to increase the pressure of fluids delivered by a pump and direct lubricants to specific locations, making them an important tool in industrial and automotive lubricant handling systems.
The nozzle fits to the aluminum anti-drip discharge pipe on the outlet of the pump hose and reduces the outlet diameter down to approx. 1/4", making oil top offs to very small fill points easy, simple, fast and clean.
Extension sleeves for pumps
Extension sleeves for pumps are a useful accessory for lubrication systems that require precise and efficient fluid delivery to hard-to-reach locations. They can help reduce the risk of spills, improve access, and increase the efficiency of lubrication maintenance tasks.
The OilSafe pumps are provided with extension sleeves enabling the pumps to reach the bottom of a 10 Liter drum.
The replacement extension sleeves come standard with a nitrile O-Ring.
Premium Pump Breathers
Pump breathers are an essential component of a pump system that provides a passage for air to enter and exit the pump during operation. The breathers help to maintain the pressure balance in the pump and prevent contamination of the pumped fluid.
There are two types of pump breathers commonly used in industrial applications: baffle breather and trap breather.
Available in two different sizes these breathers screw into the accessory port on OilSafe Premium Pumps. The 10 micron baffle breather is simpler and less expensive than the 3 micron trap breather, but they are not as effective in preventing oil mist contamination.
Trap breathers, on the other hand, are more effective in preventing oil mist contamination but are more expensive and complex.
The choice between the two types of breathers depends on the specific application requirements and the level of contamination risk.
Adapter and quick connects are components used in fluid handling systems to connect two or more pieces of equipment or fluid lines. They are designed to allow for easy and quick connection and disconnection, minimizing downtime and improving efficiency in fluid transfer operations.
The OilSafe premium pump uses a 1/4" male adapter. This brass fitting provides for secure and robust fitting of quick connects.
O-rings are commonly used in hand pumps as they offer several advantages:
O-rings provide an excellent seal, preventing air or fluid leaks from the pump. This is crucial in hand pumps as it ensures that the pump is operating efficiently and effectively.
O-rings are designed to withstand high pressure, abrasion, and wear, making them ideal for use in hand pumps. They can last for a long time without requiring replacement, saving you money on maintenance costs.
Resistance to temperature and chemicals:
O-rings can resist a wide range of temperatures and chemicals, making them suitable for use in harsh environments. They can withstand exposure to oil, gasoline, and other chemicals without becoming damaged or degraded.
Consider Viton O-ring seals for synthetic oils
where solvent content may be high.
O-rings are relatively inexpensive compared to other sealing options, making them a cost-effective choice for hand pump manufacturers and users.
O-rings come in various sizes, materials, and shapes, making them highly versatile. This means they can be used in a wide range of hand pump designs and applications.
O-rings offer many advantages for hand pump manufacturers and users, including excellent sealing, durability, resistance to temperature and chemicals, cost-effectiveness, and versatility.
Discharge hoses for pumps
Discharge hoses are an essential component of pumps used for on-site fluid storage and transportation applications. These hoses are designed to transfer liquids or fluids from the pump to the desired destination, such as a storage tank, a machine, or a transport vehicle.
They come in various sizes, lengths, and materials, depending on the specific application requirements. Some common materials used for discharge hoses include PVC, rubber, and polyurethane. These materials are selected based on factors such as the type of fluid being transported, the temperature, and the pressure requirements.
The size of the discharge hose is typically determined by the pump's flow rate and the distance the fluid needs to travel. A larger diameter hose can accommodate a higher flow rate and reduce friction losses, making it suitable for longer distances or higher volume applications.
A hose with an anti-drip hook outlet or 1/4" NPT male end is a type of fluid transfer hose that is commonly used in various applications, such as in automotive or industrial settings.
The anti-drip hook outlet is a feature of the hose that helps to prevent unwanted dripping of fluid after the hose has been disconnected from the source or destination. It is typically designed to be used with a manual or automatic shut-off valve that stops the flow of fluid when the hose is disconnected. This feature helps to prevent spills, waste, and contamination of the surrounding environment.
The 1/4" NPT male end refers to the size and type of connection on one end of the hose. The 1/4" refers to the diameter of the male end of the hose, and NPT (National Pipe Thread) is a standard thread type used in many fluid transfer applications. The male end is typically designed to be connected to a female NPT fitting on the source or destination of the fluid.
Overall, a hose with an anti-drip hook outlet or 1/4" NPT male end is a reliable and efficient option for fluid transfer applications that require a high degree of control and precision. The anti-drip hook outlet helps to prevent spills and waste, while the 1/4" NPT male end ensures a secure and compatible connection with the source or destination of the fluid.
In addition to size and material, other factors to consider when selecting discharge hoses include the hose's flexibility, durability, and resistance to abrasion, puncture, and kinking. It is also important to choose hoses that are compatible with the fluid being transported and any chemicals or additives that may be present.
Discharge hoses play a critical role in on-site fluid storage and transportation applications, as they ensure the safe and efficient transfer of fluids from the pump to the desired destination. It is important to choose the right hose for the specific application to ensure optimal performance, safety, and longevity.
