Features & Benefits
The Peerless 8175 series pumps are engineered to lower your operating costs over time. Designed for endurance, it is possible to replace only the back-pullout assembly without having to remove the coupling motor.
Standard Features of the Peerless 8175 Series Centrifugal Pump
Multiple Impeller Designs
2, 2/4, 4, 5, and 6 vane impeller designs are available to meet operating conditions from clear liquids to slurries up to 6% paper stock. Back pump out vanes minimize stuffing box pressure and entry of solids.
Inpro VBX Bearing Isolators
Labrynth seals protect bearings from environmental contamination in both static and dynamic modes.
Heavy Duty Bearings
Radial and thrust bearings have high load capacity. Bearings are sized for a minimum AFBMA B-10 life of 3 years.
Designed for minimum deflection at maximum load. Bearing and packing surfaces machined to less than 32 micro inches.
External Impeller Adjustment
Pump performance is maximized through simple external adjustment of impeller clearance. Energy costs to operate the pump are minimized.
Bulls Eye Sight Glass
One inch size for easy accurate monitoring of oil level and condition. Trico oiler available as an option.
Enlarged Oil Sump
Improves dissipation of heat for cooling of oil and bearings. Grease or oil mist lubrication is available.
Replaceable Metal Stuffing Box Bushing
Minimizes infiltration of pumpage into the stuffing box. Extends shaft and sleeve life.
Dual Volute Casing
Minimizes radial load for 6XB-14 and larger units. Extends bearing, packing, and mechanical seal life.
Keyed and Bolted Impeller
Positively locks impeller to the shaft. Prevents “back-off” during accidental reverse motor rotation. Teflon O-ring under impeller bolt prevents leakage of pumped fluid to the threads.
Replaceable Shaft Sleeve
Simplifies maintenance. Hook-type sleeve is positively driven by impeller key and is free to expand with temperature changes.
Prevents leakage under the sleeve.
Vertical Centerline Discharge
Self-venting design, available with 150# or 300# flanges.
Power Plus Wear Extender
Replaceable suction side plate minimizes maintenance costs. Pump life is extended and downtime is minimized.
