The Dickow pump type WPC 831 T was developed especially for the use in tank trucks. It is a single stage centrifugal pump with a ring channel on one side. It is capable of attaining high heads and has self-priming ability and has a compact and space-saving design. A mounting flange for the direct connection of a hydraulic motor is standard.
The pumps can handle clean liquids without solids, such as fuels and water. Since side channel pumps are self-priming, they can also handle a mixture of liquid and gas. This allows the maximum possible unloading volume from low tank levels.
To achieve the self-priming capability, high efficiency and rated differential pressure, there are tight clearances between the rotating impeller and the casing. During priming, a stable fluid film between the impellers and the disks centres the impeller in the chamber.
Grease-lubricated ball bearings hold the shaft in place. The shaft is sealed by a single mechanical seal.
