The Redi-Prime priming systems, available from Hydro Innovations , are specifically designed with the environment in mind. By incorporating a positive sealing float box and an integrally mounted diaphragm vacuum pump into the priming assembly, environmental contamination associated with the priming system is virtually eliminated. Models of the priming systems are engineered with highly efficient, enclosed impellers, with some priming systems using double volutes increasing the performance far beyond many competitor’s pumps.
The Cycloseal design of the priming systems, with its impeller backvanes and unique deflector vanes, assists in removing solids and abrasive materials from the seal area – in some cases more than tripling the normally expected mechanical seal life. Lubricant on the priming systems prevents dry running of the seal faces while priming, repriming, and standby. The dry run gland is connected to a lubricant reservoir so that shaft rotation provides circulation and cooling of the lubricant.
