Question

Hi- Can I use this pump to scavenge excess hydraulic oil from a test stand that is used to test hydraulic actuators? We gather a fair amount of waste fluid on attachment/detachment of the cylinders under test, and want to return this to the main hydraulic tank (via return filter).

Asked on 03/23/2018 by Traci from Houghton, MI

Top Answer

Hi Traci, it seems like it may work for your application. You may want to verify with the manufacturer that the specific hydraulic fluid will not effect the seals and impeller.

Answer

I don't see any reason you couldn't. We have used these smaller pumps to service large generators, and have pumped many thousands of gallons with them. The only issue we have had is pumping cold oil or having to pull at high head distances, but that is just the nature of these little pumps. Other than that they are very good pumps.

Answer

I believe you could as long as it doesn't run dry for too long. I am using this pump to scavenge the oil from my turbo as the oil sump is up hill from the turbo on my helicopter. I would install a catch screen in front of it though.

Is this good for pumping coolant?

Asked on 10/05/2014 by Dennis Smith

Top Answer

You will have to check with the manufacturer if it is suitable for pumping coolant, it works well for me pumping oil in and out of my engines.

Answer

I used it to transfer oil from the engines to the disposal container. It works very well. It primes itself quickly and runs smoothly and quietly. I use it for very seldom duty; i.e. engine oil changes. I don't know your application. For coolant I think it would work well. With coolant being less viscous than oil I would think it would pick up the prime even faster. For continuous duty like cooling an engine I wouldn't recommend it. I don't know how long the motor could run without overheating. In my application the motor did not get hot or even very warm.

Answer Question

Question

I see you advertise that the pump will pump different viscosity's of oil and Bio-Diesel and my assumption is that it will also pump all type's of diesel oil without damaging the pump in any way and if I am pumping regular diesel oil, will it change the pump flow rate with different weights of oil. I am looking for a pump to transfer diesel from my in-bed tank on my Dodge 2500 diesel to the manufacture filler hole in the truck and I have a very tight spot to mount the pump in at the auxiliary tank, so this looks to me to be just what I need if it will work with diesel. I only need to pump around 8 gals per minute. Thank You Bob in Boise Idaho ????????

Oh gosh, your talking to an environmentalist who also has been working on Human Rights Based Population Management Legislation for the last 9 years in leu of the encroaching global energy crisis, and my truck is a work horse, not a recreational vehicle, so i don't think i am going to be the right person to answer your question...sorry

You do know you will get better millage if your not hauling extra fuel, right?....anyway, i was asked to answer your question, which seems just as well accomplished via. gravity through a one way shut off valve... so while i have to tell you these are very nice high quality pumps, and that application data for each is here on the JTD site, i also feel somewhat compelled to remind you that they ship from Italy and we are entering a global energy crisis... i use mine on my hot rod-ed fire breathing moped for the E-85 EFI system pressure pump...90 MPG Hwy.

Answered on 12/02/2013 by ERIC KOCH

Answer

you do understand you will get better mileage if you are not hauling around extra fuel weight...right? seems like a job for a one-way valve, though if so compelled the data for each pump is available here on the site...i use mine for the thermal management system on my air/oil cooled 210cc E-85 moped....90 MPG Hwy and 95 mph in the 1/4 mile....my 4X4 pickup is mileage hot rod-ed to 32 Hwy....what do you get? 12 Mpg or something?

Answered on 12/02/2013 by ERIC KOCH

Answer

Thanks for the comeback Eric, my 2005 dodge diesel gets 22 miles to the gal empty and pulling my 22 foot camp trailer, it gets 14 miles to the gal and it never gets less than 14 miles to the gal, so I am not concerned about fuel mileage, but I do need to carry extra fuel with me as I travel long distances, from Idaho to Texas. I need a small low profile pump that will fit into my tight compartment where my tank is and pump fuel at about 8 gals a minute or so, even less will do. Thanks Bob B in Boise Idaho

Question

will this pump transfer engine oil 15/40 and if so how fast ?

Asked on 02/27/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

Yes it will, this is a very high quality pump....but, only within load parameters, stated in the documentation, concerning static head, ( size of the plumbing ), and Lift ( the elevation above reference oil level ).....and as, i am sure, you can also imagine, these factors also determine rate of flow, as inverse to load...

Sorry. I haven't installed the one I bought yet.

Answered on 03/27/2013 by MARK STRAETMANS

Answer

I just pumped 5 gallons 30W from two engines in a reasonable oil change scenario. My set up is 5/16th lines from the oil pan from each engine through the pump out to 1/2" discharge. I thought the pumped worked as expected. I expect 1/2" lines would produce in line with tables in catalog. Hope this helps.

Question

is this pump reversible? which will allow me to mount it to drain and then refill the engine with oil. thanks Pernell

Asked on 05/01/2013 by Undisclosed

Top Answer

The pump is not designed to be reversible. Marco makes a kit to address your specific need under part 16494015 OCP1/3. You can find it under jamestown product number 56901.

Answer

It does not come with a built in switch to make it reversible like some are. I mounted it for removing oil only, and it works well. I could not recommend wiring it to be reversible without contacting the manufacturer or competent marine electrician.
