The KS1100/PA is a portable, single stage, self-priming “jet” pump specifically designed for pumping sea-water. The threaded inlet, outlet and shaft are in 316 stainless steel with a silicon carbide and viton mechanical seal, a pump body in polypropylene, with the impeller and diffuser in noryl. Maximum suction lift is 8 metres and it can pump liquids with a maximum temperature of 35ºC. The motor is IP44 has overload protection and is fitted with rocker switch a 2 metre power lead. General purpose PVC hoses and pipe fittings perform well in sea-water, but suitable metal valves and accessories should be selected with care for their compatibility.
316 stainless steel is used widely in marine applications, but its corrosion resistance in contact with seawater is limited, so it cannot be considered ‘corrosion proof’. The corrosion risks increase with the effects of chloride concentrations, evaporation, temperature, aeration etc, (working individually or together); hence, the guarantee period for these models relates to the mechanical operation and may not cover all seawater conditions.
