The Viscomat is a self-priming rotary vane pump for the transfer of oils and lubricants. It has an adjustable bypass valve (which protects the pump for up to 2 minutes during closed valve conditions). Oils up to 500 centistokes, or ranging from SAE 10W up to SAEW/140 (gear oil), can be pumped, but flow rate will alter depending on viscosity and temperature of the oil in question (NB published performance based on 80 W oil at 20ºC, no foot valve and 2 metre x 25mm/1” suction hose).
Supplied free-standing, but a full frame is available as an optional extra for ease of handling and added protection (click here.)
It MUST NOT pump diesel, water, petrol, chemicals, solvents or products with a low flash point.
