Instructions for:
MODEL No's: TP98.v2 & TP9824.v2
Thank you for purchasing a Sealey product. Manufactured to a high standard this product will, if used according to these instructions
and properly maintained, give you years of trouble free performance.
Maintain the pump in good condition (use an authorised service agent).
Familiarise yourself with the applications, limitations and potential hazards of the Transfer Pump.
Replace or repair damaged parts. Use recommended parts only. Non authorised parts may be dangerous and will invalidate the warranty.
Keep the pump clean for best and safest performance.
Ensure the power supply (vehicle battery) corresponds with the requirements of the pump. TP98 12Volt, TP9824 24Volt DC power supply.
DO NOT pull or carry the unit by its cables and do not pull the negative and positive clamps from the battery terminals.
DO NOT start or stop the pump by connecting or disconnecting the battery clamps
Ensure that there is more liquid in the suction tank than will be pumped.
Ensure that the capacity of the receiving tank is sufficient to hold the pumped fuel.
Wear safety goggles and gloves, and protective clothing when working around fuel. A full range of personal safety equipment is available from your local Sealey dealer.
Use the pump in an appropriate working area for its function. Keep area clean and tidy and free from unrelated materials, and ensure there is adequate lighting.
Maintain correct balance and footing.
Ensure the floor is not slippery and wear
non slip shoes.
Keep children and unauthorised persons away from the working area.
DO NOT ‘dry run’ the pump without fuel.
This will damage the pump’s internal
components and will invalidate your warranty.
DO NOT operate the pump continuously for more than 30 minutes. The duty cycle of the
unit is 30 minutes, after which the motor must
be left to cool down.
DO NOT run the unit for more than 2-3
minutes with the delivery nozzle closed.
DO NOT smoke or allow a spark, or flame in
the vicinity of the battery or pump.
DO NOT operate the pump with wet hands.
DO NOT use the pump where explosive or flammable vapours may be present.
DO NOT tamper with the pump connections.
DO NOT allow the pump to run dry.
WARNING! DO NOT use the unit to pump the following fluids:
Petrol, flammable liquids with PM <55°C, water, alimentary liquids with viscosity >20 cSt., corrosive chemicals and solvents.
WARNING! The warnings, cautions and instructions referred to in this manual cannot cover all possible conditions and situations that may occur. It must be understood that common sense and caution are factors which cannot be built into this product, but must be applied by the operator.

3.pREparation & assembly
 WARNING Conical fittings should not be used to connect to the inlet/outlet ports as they will damage the seats on the pump casing.
3.1 Before using the pump, unpack all materials and inspect the pump unit for damage.
3.2Connect the unit to appropriate voltage battery and ensure the motor will run up freely, this can be done before connecting hoses.
3.3 Attach the two flanges supplied to the inlet and outlet ports of the pump using the socket cap bolts provided. The flanges have different recesses for different types of fixings in either face. Insert the socket cap bolts into the circular counterbored recesses you will find in one face of each flange. Ensure that the ‘O’ rings provided are trapped in the groove in the flange face which seals onto each port.
3.4 A mounting bracket is supplied which can be attached to either side of the inlet/outlet casting. The pump can be mounted in either a
horizontal or a vertical axis. Ensure that the pump is mounted so that the on/off lever is visible and readily accessible.
3.5The delivery/outlet hose and suction/inlet hose are supplied with a male threaded fitting at either end.
3.6 Attach the filter to one end off the suction hose Identify the inlet port by means of the flow arrows shown on the cast body of the unit adjacent to each port and then attach the hose to the inlet port.
3.7 Attach the delivery nozzle to one end of the outlet hose. Before the delivery hose can be attached to the outlet port the pump body must be partially filled with diesel fuel to aid the priming process. (See next section.)
WARNING! Check to ensure you are connecting your pump to the correct voltage power supply for model.
4.1 Before each use, clean the inlet and outlet ports. Remove any dust or packing material that may have collected during transport or between uses.
4.2 PRIMING THE PUMP. Lower the suction tube (with filter attached) into the fuel storage tank. Ensure the pump is no more than 2mtr
higher than the end of the suction tube during the priming phase. During normal running, this distance may be increased to a maximum of
4.3 Before first use partially fill the pump body with diesel fuel to aid the priming process then connect the delivery tube.
4.4 If using an automatic delivery nozzle, it is recommended that you remove this while the pump is priming.
4.5 The priming phase may last from several seconds to a few minutes, dependant on conditions. Should this phase appear to be prolonged, stop the pump and check the points listed in section 6.2.
Note: The foot valve incorporated in the suction filter ensures that the suction tube does not empty back into the tank and therefore
eliminates the need to repeat the priming of the pump each time it is used. However, should the suction tube be allowed to empty, it will again be necessary to prime the pump before use. Failure to do so could cause damage to the pump.
4.6 NORMAL USE. Place the delivery nozzle in the fuel tank of the vehicle.
4.7 Attach the red battery clamp to the positive (+) terminal of the vehicle’s battery, and the black clamp to the negative (-) terminal.
4.8 Before turning the pump on, be sure that the delivery nozzle is in the ‘OFF’ position.
4.9 Move the switch lever to the ‘ON’ position. The pump is capable of operating with the delivery nozzle closed for only 2-3 minutes maximum.
4.10 Grip the nozzle firmly and squeeze the trigger to begin transferring fuel.
4.11Release the trigger to stop the fuel flow when the transfer is complete. (On an automatic delivery nozzle, simply turn the pump switch to off)
4.12Turn the pump switch ‘OFF’.
NOTE! The fuel pump is fitted with an internal reset trip which may switch off automatically if there is a power surge or a fault in the
electrical connection. If this happens, release the trigger handle, keeping the nozzle in place, and investigate the cause of the
interruption. If the fault has cleared the internal trip will reset itself after a few seconds.
Environmental conditions:
Temperature: -20ºC / +60ºC Max Relative Humidity: 90%
Performance Data given is for the transfer of diesel fuel at 20°C. The conditions indicated are as follows:
5.1 By-Pass - The pump operates in this mode when the delivery is closed and the internal by-pass valve automatically opens.
The pressure indicated is constant regardless of the type of delivery systems. Note that the unit can only operate in this condition
for a maximum of 2 to 3 minutes.
5.2 Maximum Back Pressure - These values are given for the maximum back pressure allowed with the by-pass valve closed.
Higher back pressures will cause the by-pass valve to open and reduce delivery volume. The back pressure should not exceed the value given during normal operation.
5.3 Maximum Delivery - These values indicate the lowest back pressure and greatest delivery volume possible at once.

6.2The priming phase may last from several seconds to a few minutes, dependant on conditions. Should this phase appear to be prolonged, stop the pump and check the following:
●● That the pump is not running completely dry (see section 4.2 on priming the pump).
●● That the suction tubing is not allowing air in.
●● That the filter is not clogged.
●● That the difference in height between the pump and the end of the suction hose is not more than 2mtr.
●● That the delivery tube is allowing the evacuation of air.
6.2 When priming has occurred, ensure that the pump is operating as anticipated.
7.1Check the pump casing, suction and delivery tubes regularly for leaks.
7.2 Keep the pump clean for easy detection of leaks.
7.3Remove and clean the filter every 10 hours of operation or sooner if the transfer flow begins to decrease.
7.4 Dispose of environmentally hazardous parts in the proper manner.
7.5This pump is protected from voltage surges and short circuits by a trip switch.
