Pentair introduces a new line of SHURFLO Diaphragm Pump.

Designed for spraying and pumping herbicides, pesticides, liquid fertilizers and hard-to-handle fluids.

The 5059 Series of automatic-demand pumps features a field-proven head design that delivers flow rates up to five gallons per minute (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 series offers powerful, long-lasting performance for a wide range of applications, according to the company.

To ensure maximum longevity and resilience, the series is designed with a Santoprene diaphragm and Viton valves for chemical resistance and maximum lifespan.  

The new pumps, which can be run dry without damage, 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, the units deliver 3.8 GPM with current draw of 13 amps.

The pumps are available in the same footprint as other models in the SHURFLO line, allowing users to upgrade to a higher performance pump in existing applications.

The product also offers automatic thermal overload protection and self-priming capabilities up to eight feet and dry priming up to six vertical feet.  FG
