Self- priming rotary vane pump, equipped with by-pass valve and filter integreted in
the pump body, driven by a asincronuos motor 230-50/60Hz, in protection class IP 54,
designed for the transfer of Diesel fuel. The motor is provided with an automatic thermal
protection switch that switch off the pump in overload running conditions. The thermal
protection switch on automatically after few minutes and, if the main switch of the pump
is still turned ON, the motor will re-start spontaneously: for this reason it’s recommended
always switch off the pump after an unexpected stop of the motor and contact immediatly
the service.
The pump is designed for a continuous use S1.

Diesel fuel flow
To get the maximun pump flow rate it’s necessary:
-) Minimize lenght of suction and discharge lines;
-) Avoid, if possible, elbow and throttling along the line;
-) Use tubing with diameter equal or grater than 3/4”;
-) Keep clean the strainer regularly;
-) Use extension cable only if necessary (minimum section 3x2.5 mmq x 5m).

Preliminary operations:
-) Check that the product has not suffered any damage during transport or storage, in case
of damages or missing parts, please contact immediately the dealer.
-) Remove the protection plugs on inlet and outlet of the pump;
-) Attach the pump using screws of adequate diameter for the fixing holes provided in the
bracket of he pump.
Electrical connections
WARNING! It’s responsibility of the installer to perform the electrical connections
with respect for the applicable local or national regulations.
-) Check that the suppling electrical specifications correspond to those shown on the plate.

ting edges. Inspect always the supply cable against damages: in case of damage replace
immediatly the supply cable with an original one. Avoid that cables, electrical receptacle,
clamps and switches have contact with water or flammable fluids and avoid high moisture
ambient for the pump.
If necessary, use extension cable 5 meters lenght with minimum section 3x2.5mmq, unwinding completely the extension cable.All metal parts must be always grounded.
Tubing connection
Before connection make sure that the tubing, the inlet - outlet of the pump and the suction
tank are not clogged and free of dirt, rust, etc. that could damage the pump and/or clog the
retainer. The threaded connections must be 1” BSP type (do not use conical threaded joints
that could damage the threaded pump bores), the pipes connections must be leakage-proof,
to avoid air or fuel leakage and pump trouble.
When the hoses are not supplied, it is consiled minimize the lenght of both suction and
discharge hoses, use hoses with adequate characteristics for diesel fuel, antistatic, with diameter equal or greater than ¾” and working pressure equal or grater than10 bar, in addition
the suction hose shall be suitable for functioning under suction pressure. Connect the pump,
observing the right fuel flow, like indicated by the arrows on the pump body.
The use of tubing unsuitable for use with Diesel fuel can damage
the pump, injury persons and produce pollution, because of diesel fuel splashing/spilling.
The discharge hose and the accessories (nozzle, meter, etc.)
must be grounded (to dissipate the electrostatic currents), alternatively the hoses can be of
antistatic type). It is installer responsability to use tubing with adequate characteristics.
To prevent injury, observe precautions against electrical shock, fire or
explosion when dispensing fuel. Do not operate switch with wet handsDo not operate the
pump in the presence of any source off ignition including running or hot engines, lighted
cigarettes or gas or electric heater.
Start the diesel fuel dispensing turning ON the switch on the pump and opening the delivery
valve (the lever of the nozzle, if present) solidly grasping the end of the hose; at the end of
the diesel fuel dispensing turn OFF the switch on the the pump and disconnect the main
power supply.
Operate the pump in ambient with temperature between -15°C and
+40°C. Serious or fatal shock can result from operating electrical equipment in dump or wet
Avoid prolonged contact with petroleum fuels. Use protective
goggles, gloves and aprons in case of splashing or spills. Change saturated clothing and
wash skin promptly with soap and water.
This pump is designed for the transfer of diesel fuel with flash point at or above 55 °C
(131°F). DO NOT USE this pump for other types of fluid. Use of this pump with other types
of fluid may damage components and will void the warranty. The pump in not suitable with
alimentary or food fluids.
Operation without fluid
DO NOT LEAVE the pump running without fuel. Dry running
(even for few minutes only) can damage the pump.
Operating in by-pass
Pump is equipped with an automatic by-pass valve. Pump wil go into by-pass when the
discharge line is close.To prolong the life of the pump, minimize time spent in by-pass.
Operation with the discharge line closed -by-pass mode- is alDANGER!
lowed for maximum 3 minutes only. Longer pump running in by-pass mode produce abnormal diesel fuel temperature raising, with all the fire or explosion risks connected.
Observe precaution against electrical shock when servicing the
pump! Always disconnect power before attempting any service. Never apply electrical power
to the pump when any of the cover plates are removed. The pump is designed for minimal
maintenance, it is recommended observe the following indications:
Keep the pump exterior clean to help identify leaks, check the connection/joints sealing and
repair immediatly any leakage, if necessary. Check the electrical cable conditions: if damages/cuts or other defects are recognized, it is necessary replace the cable with an original
one, this operation must be performed by an expert technician.
Check the conditions of suction and discharge hoses: if fissures, cuts, bulges or other damages are recognized, it is necessary replace the hose with an original one.
Weekly or every 5 hours of work:
Inspect and/or clean the strainer integrated in the body pump: a clogged retainer reduce the
fuel flow delivery and the pump lifetime; to disassemble the retainer unscrew the plug (2,
pag. 7) and remove the strainer from its seat, clean by air -blast spray, then reassemble the
strainer and the plug.
Every 2 years it’s recommended replace the discharge hose.
Switch off the pump, disconnect the electrical wiring, disconnect the lines and flush the pump.
Package properly the product and be care to avoid shocks during the transportation.
