    PUMP HEAD CHARGE: Motor is coupled to diaphragms with patented gas pressure charged chamber Pumping outlet pressure runs about 10 PSI lower than the charge gas pressure level Non-reactive CO2 gas is used to charge the pump head CO2 gas is safer than air for driving the pumping CO2 gas is non-flammable and non-explosive with LPG (should a diaphragm ever leak) CO2 gas regulator with gauges is provided with pump assembly CO2 tank is operator provided (cannot ship filled tanks) – from any welding supply shop Pump charge gas supply: standard (#20) 5 LB tank of industrial CO2 Typical CO2 gas usage: <0.2 SCFH (very little); estimated life of charge gas tank: 1 year Pump charge gas pressure range: continuous 5 to 70 PSI (1.4 to 5.5 bar); to 80 PSI intermittent ELECTRICAL & MECHANICAL: Electric motor: explosion proof for C1D1 hazardous areas; rated Class I Gr C & D, Class II Gr F&G Electric motor: 1 HP, 1800 RPM, 60 HZ Motor option: Model MVP-6CFM-1PH: Single-phase: 115/208-230V, 13.4/6.7 FLA (full load amps) Motor option: Model MVP-6CFM-3PH: Three-phase: 208-230/460V, 3.3/1.65 FLA, Inverter-rated Pump speed: 190 CPM (cycles per minute) at 60 HZ Noise: sound pressure measured 1 meter from pump: 80.5 dBa Porting: process inlet and outlet: 1/2" JIC-male Added ports for optional pressure gauges: inlet and outlet: 1/4" FNPT Inlet & outlet ports at ideal equipment connection heights 46” and 41” above floor Size: 17.0” x 19.9” base x 46” tall; minimum use of valuable floor space Weight: 182.5 lb (82.8 kg)
