A hand pump with 3/4" flange which is almost entirely rust-proof, suitable for pumping liquids such as oil, glycol and household water. Ideal for use in summer cottages as a sauna water pump, or for oil containers. The pump can be purchased alone, or as part of a do-it-yourself kit (the Nira 6B pump set) which includes everything needed for installation apart from the suction pipe and pressure pipe. The Nira 6B hand pump is also available with Viton seals, which means the pump can be used with liquids such as petrol (gasoline).
When installing the pump please be aware that the length of the suction pipe affects the pump’s maximum suction lift height. P 1" (32 mm) is normally used as suction pipe, with a bottom valve fitted at the end. The Nira 6B can momentarily take around 3 bar of pressure. The pump must not be fitted to a network where it is continuously subject to pressure. If the Nira 6B pump is used for pumping household water and is stored in a place where there is a risk of freezing, be sure to thoroughly empty it of water. Delivered in a cardboard box.
When the pump is attached to a fuel tank, make sure the tank cannot empty itself (the siphon effect).
