AMT 3930-95 2" CAST IRON TRASH PUMP WITH 6.5 HP GAS BRIGGS & STRATTON
AMT 3930-95 2" CAST IRON TRASH PUMP WITH 6.5 HP GAS BRIGGS & STRATTON ENGINE
This AMT 3930-95 engine-driven trash pump has a cast iron housing and 2" female NPT suction and discharge ports. This pump has B curve performance with a 185 gallons per minute (gpm) maximum flow rate and 105 feet maximum vertical lift. The centrifugal pump is self-priming to 20 vertical feet (after initial fill) with its built-in check valve, and its stainless steel clog-resistant impeller handles semi-solids up to 1" diameter. The pump housing has Viton (FKM, fluoroelastomer)/silicon carbide mechanical seals and Viton O-rings for corrosion resistance. The housing's double volute chamber reduces radial load on the impeller, and both the volute and impeller are replaceable with the removal of four bolts. The Briggs & Stratton Vanguard overhead valve (OHV) engine has a 1.3 hour run time and a low oil alert. A steel roll frame protects the engine and pump and the unit includes two 2" NPT pipe nipples and a 2" NPT street elbow. A wheel kit (not included) is available for roll frame pumps. This pump is suitable for use in high-volume fluid transfer applications such as in agricultural irrigation and drainage or chemical spraying, handling, and processing.

Pumps use mechanical action to move liquids, gases, or slurries (solids suspended in a liquid or gas). The mechanical action is categorized as either positive displacement (PD) or kinetic. PD pumps capture and release discrete amounts of flow into a chamber and then force it out. Some examples of PD pumps are fuel and oil pumps in cars, pumps in hydraulic systems, and bicycle pumps. Kinetic pumps move liquids, gases, or slurries by transferring energy from the pump's movement to the flow. They use an impeller to draw the flow in, add energy to the flow, and move it through a volute (a spiral funnel through which the flow moves), and into the system. Some examples of kinetic pumps include centrifugal (the most common pump in industrial applications), in-line pumps, sump pumps, and suction pumps. Energy sources for all types of pumps include wind power, manual operation, electricity, and gasoline or diesel fuel.
American Machine and Tool (AMT) manufactures centrifugal and diaphragm pumps. The company is headquartered in Royersford, PA.
