Worthington Offers New Cast Iron Pump Line — Literature Available

A general-purpose line of efficient end-suction pumps with capacities to 1,200 gpm is being offered by Worthington through its national network of independent distributors and direct-sales personnel.

The cast iron pumps, designated as the D-800 line, are available in 19 sizes, frame-mounted or closecoupled.

The pumps are designed for minimum operating and maintenance costs.

Features include a bell-shaped mechanical seal cover to provide improved mechanical seal life.

Frame-mounted pump bearings are conservatively designed and maintenance- free, being sealed for life and pre-lubricated. Other advantages cited for the pump include back-pullout, allowing complete access to pump internals without disturbing system piping; integral adapter seal cover for added pump rigidity and fewer internal components; dry rabbet fit at the casing joint to eliminate internal corrosion and to aid in pump disassembly when being repaired; and top centerline discharge casings to simplify system piping and remove stress on pump bearing frame.

Standard materials of construction include a high-grade cast iron casting with precision bronze vacuum die-cast impellers of enclosed design. High-strength steel shafts will be protected at the mechanical seal area by renewable bronze or 416 SS sleeves. An all-cast-iron fitted pump is also available.
