“Davies” C1 Standard Piston Pump – 500 Gallon

Direct Drive Piston Water Pumps

The C Series is a single cylinder double-acting piston pump especially adapted
for open or pressure tank service. The enclosed type of crankcase is designed
to meet a demand for a pump which has a minimum of exposed working parts,
thereby securing maximum safety of operation as well as good lubrication. The
pump is suitable where the vertical distance to the lowest water level does not
exceed 7.6 meters (25 feet).

“Davies” C1 Construction

Power End: Consists of heavy casting which forms the base and oil reservoir and is fitted with cover, permitting quick access to working parts.

Piston Rod: is stainless steel, which offers exceptional resistance to scouring and corrosion. it operates through a deep
stuffing-box of the nut and gland type. A disc water deflector is fitted on the piston rod, fully safeguarding crankcase
against entry of water in the event of gland leaks.

Piston: is fitted with high grade leather crimp packing.

Crosshead: prevents all side thrust on stuffing box and plunger.

Connecting Rod: is of cast iron accurately machined, with large bearing surfaces.
Water End: Bolted to Power End is reversible if required, with replaceable brass cylinder liner and replaceable bronze valve
grid seats which are pressed firmly in pump head casting.

Drive: Double Vee to vee. Fully adjustable. 12inch on Pump, 3inch on Motor, Twin 48inch AV belt.

Pinion: Machined from special steel with helical cut teeth.

Crank gear: Of close grained cast iron, with helical cut teeth, ensuring quite operation and durability. Eccentric and gear
wheel are in one piece. Gear ration 5 to 1.

Lubrication: Oil in the crankcase floods every moving part at each stroke of the pump. (1/2pint SAE30 Oil)

Valves: Suction valves are located below plunger, providing the most direct flow of water possible from inlet to discharge.
Valves are rubber disks, noiseless in operation, with brass plates and springs above the valve to provide quick closing.
Brass valve seats of the grid type are screwed firmly into the cylinder body.

Vacuum Chamber suction opening is high enough to ensure the cylinder being filled with water at all times. And the pump
always “primed”.

Suction and Discharge Lines: These are taken from the side of the cylinder body. It is never necessary to disconnect any of
the piping to get at the inside of the pump.

Includes the Vee Belt, Motor Pulley and Gland Spanner

Oil Required: SAE30 (not included)
