Protek Hand Primers

Protek  Hand Primers

Protek hand primer pumps provide fast efficient priming of pump installations with high suction lift or extra long suction lines. Protek hand priming pumps can be used in a wide range of installations such as fountains, swimming pools and irrigation systems. They can be portable or permanently attached.

THE DIAPHRAGM PRIMER contains a rubber diaphragm working in an aluminum chamber. A levered handle attached to it by a connecting rod actuates the diaphragm. Air is drawn into the chamber through a suction valve on the up-stroke and discharged through a discharge valve on the down-stroke. The primer body is made of a light weight aluminum alloy. The diaphragm is of molded rubber, and it is extremely tough and longwearing. A rubber air discharge valve, built into the diaphragm, provides a positive seal. We manufacture #5 Diaphragm Primers(DP5), #7 Diaphragm Primers(DP7), and #9 Diaphragm Primer(DP9).
