General Safety Information
It is the responsibility of the user to
operate the pump in conformance with
OSHA rules for dispensing liquids. Pump
4946-250-00
containers should be grounded when
using with flammable liquids to avoid
static electricity. Pump should be
washed out before usage since processing lubricants could contaminate
the fluid.
1. When using a hand pump (especially
when pumping flammable,
combustible or hazardous liquids)
follow all electrical and safety codes,
as well as the United States
Occupational Safety and Health Act
(OSHA), most recent National
Electrical Code (NEC), National Fire
Protection Association, Inc.* (NFPA)
Code 30 (Flammable and Combustible
Code), NFPA 56A (Standard for use of
Inhalation Anesthetics), NFPA 77
(Static Electricity), NFPA 78 (Lighting
Protection Code), NFPA 80 (Standard
for Fire Doors and Windows), NFPA
251 (Standard Method of Fire Test of
Building Construction), NFPA 704
(Identification of the Fire Hazards of
Materials), other NFPA codes, local
codes and ordinances, as needed in a
particular application.
(*)Any of the NFPA Codes can be
obtained from: National Fire
Protection Association, Inc., 1
Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269,
telephone 1-800-344-3555. Write or
call for listing and prices.
2. Know the pump application,
limitations, and potential hazards.
The WARNING statements indicate
potentially hazardous conditions for
the operator or equipment. TAKE
NECESSARY STEPS TO PROTECT
PERSONNEL AND EQUIPMENT.
Pump should only be used with
liquids compatible with pump
component materials. Consult PUMP
CHEMICAL COMPATIBILITY CHART
and PUMP SPECIFICATIONS. Also,
the chemical supplier should be
consulted regarding any questions of
chemical compatibility, proper and
safe use and handling of chemical.
Misapplication of pump or use of
incompatible liquids will void
warranty.
In order to properly
use this product
familiarize yourself with this pump and
also with the liquid (chemical, etc.) that
is going to be pumped through the unit.
Although this pump is suitable for
many liquids, it is not suitable for all
liquids!
3. Pumping hazardous, flammable, or
combustible liquids should only be
done in buildings, rooms, or areas
suited for this purpose. (See NFPA 30,
NFPA 78, NFPA 80, NFPA 251, NFPA
704, other suitable NFPA codes,
OSHA, insurance companies, local
codes and ordinances.)
When filling cans,
drums, etc. with
combustible or flammable liquids, both
containers (container pumping from
and container pumping to), should be
bonded and grounded to dissipate
possible accumulations of static
electricity and minimize sparks caused
by static electricity. (Refer to NFPA 77
for specifics and further details.)
Removal of outer garments in work
areas where there may be flammable
or explosive liquids, which are ignitable
with low electrical energy can be fatal
and/or cause property damage. (Refer
to NFPA 56A and NFPA 77 for further

details.)
4. The WARNING and instructions that
follow pertain not only to gasoline,
but to any flammable, combustible
or hazardous fluid.
Gasoline is a highly
flammable fuel. The
improper use, handling, or storage of
gasoline can be dangerous. Prevent
accidents by following these safety
rules.
a. Use gasoline only as fuel, never as a
cleaning fluid.
b. Use only an approved container to
hold or store gasoline. Never store
gasoline in familiar containers such
as milk containers or soda pop
bottles.
c. Store gasoline in a cool location,
out of the reach of children. Never
store gasoline near heat or an open
flame.
d. Provide a fire extinguisher nearby
when working with gasoline. Be
sure extinguisher is in operating
condition – check the pressure
gauge of indicator. Be familiar with
its proper use. Consult local fire
department for the correct type of
extinguisher for your application.
Extinguishers rated ABC by the
National Fire Protection Association
are appropriate for most applications.
e. Provide positive shut-off valves on
all permanent fuel supplies. Fuel
lines must be of steel piping, adequately secured, and free from
leaks.
f. Provide adequate ventilation, and
clean up any spills when handling
or pumping flammable liquids.
g. POSITIVELY NO SMOKING!
5. Do not use torches or apply fire to
this pump for any reason.
starting the pump. An unsecured
discharge line will slip, possibly
causing personal injury and/or
property damage.
7. Do not overtighten nonmetallic,
threaded fittings. One full turn past
hand tight is usually enough to
prevent leakage. Teflon® sealant tape
is provided and should be used on all
threaded joints, including the spout.
8. Check hoses for weak or worn
conditions before each use, making
certain that all connections are
secure.
9. Periodically inspect pump and system
components. Perform routine
maintenance as required.
10. Drain all liquids from the system
before servicing.
Any pump used to
transfer flammable
liquids must be stored in a well-ventilated area after use.
PERSONAL SAFETY
1. Wear safety glasses at all times when
working with pump.
2. Wear a face shield, proper apparel
and suitable respiratory equipment
when pumping hazardous chemicals.
3. Keep work area clean, uncluttered,
and properly lighted. Replace all
unused tools and equipment.
4. Keep visitors at a safe distance from
the work area.
5. Make workshop childproof with
padlocks, master switches, and by
removing starter keys.
Failure to follow
all General Safety
Information can result in a fatality,
personal injury and/or property
damage!

liquids, try filling pump
through discharge port
before operation. A filled
casing primes quickly
1. Suction line above liquid
1. Ensure that open end of suction line remains completely
below surface of liquid
2. Operate pump handle rapidly until pump primes (up to
30 cycles)
3. Pumps are intended for use with suction line supplied.
Longer or collapsible suction line may prohibit priming.
Use short length rigid line similar in diameter to suction
port. (Maximum pump height above liquid 36”)
4. Clean suction line and/or filter (where applicable)
2. Pump speed too slow
* 3. Unsuitable suction line
4. Clogged suction line
and/or filter
5. Suction line air leakage
5. Verify that all suction line connections are sealed tightly.
Use Teflon® tape or appropriate sealant if necessary
6. Inspect pump cover(s) for looseness and damaged or
slipped gaskets. Replace damaged gaskets and snug-up
cover(s)
7.Verify shaft seal is properly seated and in good
condition. Replace seal if worn or damaged
8. Inspect entire pump housing, cover(s), and shaft for
cracks. Replace damaged parts
9. Loosen all cover bolts. View pump from side with
suction/discharge ports in vertical position and on right
hand side. Reposition rotor by grasping covers and
sliding towards 3 o’clock position. Do not use excessive
force. Hold in position and re-tighten cover bolts
10. Remove pump cover and inspect for broken pieces.
