Crop protection products and fertilizers are tough on pumps, but the new Pentair Shurflo 5059 series diaphragm pump has been designed for spraying and pumping these important ag products. The series of automatic-demand pumps features a field-proven head design that delivers flow rates up to 5 gpm with pressures up to 60 psi and a maximum draw of 17 amps. Driven by a 12-volt, continuous-duty, sealed motor, the new 5059 can be used in a wide range of applications.
For longevity the 5059 series is designed with a Santoprene diaphragm and Viton valves for chemical resistance. The new pumps can be run dry without damage and also feature a built-in pressure switch, set at 60 psi, to protect the unit in the event of dead-heading. When operating at a pressure of 40 psi, Shurflow's new 5059 units deliver 3.8 gpm with current draw of just 13 amps.
The pumps are also available in the same footprint as other models in the company's line, allowing for easy upgrades in existing applications. The pumps also offer automatic thermal overload protection and self-priming capabilities up to 8-feet and dry priming up to 6 vertical feet.
