Chlorine Pump

Chemical feed pumps are devices attached in a boiler to dispense chemicals into its system in an accurate and regulated manner. These pumps operate through positive displacement, in which fluid is pushed through a pump’s fixed cavity by rollers, gears, or impellers. It then leaves a space to pull in more fluid. To regulate flow rates precisely, the flow control lever is adjusted and locked in position with the thumb screw lock. Stenner has been manufacturing feed pumps for over fifty years and offers a complete line of highly reliable peristaltic models with output ranges from 0.2 gallons (0.6 liters) to 170 gallons (514.8 liters) per day, depending on the model and its application. The Classic Series pumps are housed with Lexan polycarbonate plastic for durability and can run dry without damage.

Models only require minimal maintenance without compromising on reliability. 

Pumping chlorine (sodium hypochlorite) at times may be difficult. Chlorine will naturally degas causing typical metering pumps to lose prime. This problem becomes even more of a pain in summer months when chlorine temperatures may rich higher temperatures. For this reason, the pump of choice is Stenner Pumps. Stenner Pump is an excellent Chlorine Pump since it is a peristaltic pump.

Stenner Pumps come in multiple gpd both fixed and variable rate.
