The LB series are heavy duty, yet lightweight, contractor pumps for dirty and abrasive site water.
The dual position outlet on the LB480, gives the option of either verticle or non kink horizontal pumping.
Designed to operate for extended periods in seepage conditions.
Available with or without a float switch.
The LB series are extremely robust, compact contractor pumps, that have a 50mm (2”) outlet and a tough pressed steel strainer base and body.
LB480 offerS excellent durability during periods of continuous use and/or operator abuse.
The LB-480 model incorporateS a dual position outlet port, to enable the user to position the outlet hose horizontally or vertically and avoid it kinking.
A combination of a rubber pump chamber, rubber wear plate and a urethane vortex impeller provides excellent wear resistance in site water applications that contain sand and silt in suspension, thus maintaining performance and reliability.
The LB480 models use a 403 stainless steel shaft that is fitted with an ultra hardwearing double mechanical seal (inboard: silicon carbide-silicon carbide) which runs in an oil chamber that has an oil lifter to maintain seal lubrication during operation in any position.
This feature, combined with the water and air cooling route to the top outlet, allows the pump to operate for extended periods with little or no water.
Considered the “hire industry standard”, earlier models of the LB-480 have been used in this trade since the mid-70’s. Supplied with 10 metres of heavy duty rubber power cable.
Available in single-phase only, with an optional pendant type float switch on the LB-480. For the more compact sump, electronic probe type and tube type float switches are also available.
