Self-priming Diesel-powered Pump

The newest addition to Godwin Pumps’ HL series is the HL260M Dri-Prime pump, capable of flow rates to 4,760 gpm (1810 m3/h) and heads to 500 ft (150 m). The 10 x 8-in. (250 x 200-mm) HL260M is a single- stage, automatic self-priming centrifugal pump with solids handling capability to 2-in. (50-mm) in diameter. According to the company, the Dri-Prime venturi priming system on the HL260M provides suction lift capability to 28 ft (8.5 m) and continuous uninterrupted operation. In addition, its dry running, double high-pressure oil bath mechanical seal with abrasion-resistant solid silicon carbide faces enables the pump to run indefinitely without overheating. The skid-mounted HL260M has a single- point lifting frame and built-in fork truck pockets are standard on all machines for easy lifting and transporting. A Godwin PrimeGuard controller provides remote monitoring and programmable operations that start and stop the pump with no operator intervention required. Other PrimeGuard features include maintenance reminders, event history, real-time response to changing pressure transducer signals and a safety shutdown system to prevent equipment damage from engine fault or failure.
