Self-priming pumps

Our self-priming pumps boast the following important features:  

  • pumping liquids with a specific gravity without reducing performance by installing electric motors of increased power;

  • the use of E-CTFE for magnetic versions offers an unparalleled chemical resistance when compared to other injection moulded polymers;

  • the close-coupled versions have standardised electric motors. 

3 versions are available: Hippo (ZMA), Elk (TMA G1) and Rhino (TMA G2) 

          ELK                             RHINO                                            HIPPO    

: up to 50 m3/h 
Construction: close-coupled
Motor powers: kW 0,55 ÷ 7,5
Wetted parts: PP, E-CTFE, U-PVC, PDVF 


The self-priming process allows to carry the pumped fluid by aspiring air and then by collecting the liquid. Thanks to Argal's specific self-priming construction, our pumps are able to operate with higher suction length and shorter priming times than traditional self-priming pumps. 


Our self-priming pumps are ideal for pumping liquids with vapour or heavy fluids. Thanks to the powerful magnetical coupling and the different motor powers available ("N" - 1,1 | "P" - 1,35 | "S" - 1,8), they can drag heavy liquids without reducing their hydraulic performance. 
Our turbopump Rhino can drag the following acids up to 4 m of negative suction: sulphuric 98%, chloridric 33%, nitric, phosphoric, sodium hypochlorite, caustic soda...
