  • Our special self-priming casing design permits the 8796 pumps to maintain a prime and to expel any air in the suctioned liquid via the self-venting top centerline discharge.
  • The unique two-piece pull-apart casing allows for quick replacement of the inner volute. The inner volute itself can be provided in a variety of wear-resistant materials, such as CD4MCu.
  • Our impellers are a fully open design that resists clogging. Shear is reduced, resulting in lower losses when pumping viscous fluids. All impellers are also available in an optional keyed and bolted design.
  • The bearing frame is coated internally to ensure zero contamination of the oil or bearings from the inside.
  • The VBXD® labyrinth oil seal by Inpro, designed especially for Peerless Pump, provides both static and dynamic sealing to protect bearings from environmental contamination.
  • All bearing fits are precision-bored, and all bearings meet or exceed the minimum ANSI L10 life of 17,500 hours.
  • The shaft is available in solid shaft construction or with a sleeve. The threaded area of the shaft is protected against corrosion with an O-ring seal on the impeller.
  • Integral back pump-out vanes reduce stuffing box pressure, prolonging mechanical seal or packing life.
