SMX-F designs utilize a robust internal design ensuring maximum reliability under adverse operating conditions. Non-contact bearing system provides for dry run operation without damage to the pump. Self-radiating bearing system effectively transfers frictional heat from the bearing area to prevent damage during upset operating conditions.
The use of precision injection molded components results in consistent self-priming performance and product quality. No external chambers or valves required saving valuable installation space. Priming chamber only needs to be filled once for repeatable, fast priming.
