The Peerless Pump PERFORMER™ Series, Model 8196 ANSI standard pumps are manufactured for a wide range of flow and head requirements and meet the latest ASME and ANSI B73.1M specifications. The Performer Series combines high efficiency, maximum performance, and extended Mean Time Between Failure (MTBF) for reduced maintenance cost.
The 8196 casing is a self venting, top centerline discharge with a fully confined gasket. In addition an optional Casing Wear Extender™ is available on 3x4-13 and 4x6-13 MTP frame sizes and on all XLTP frame sizes.
The impeller is an open design that significantly reduces clogging. A Low Flow Impeller is available for select sizes of STP frame pumps. This Low Flow Impeller helps extend MTBF for those applications operating far to the left of the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) of the standard pump.
The power end has a bearing frame made of heavy duty cast iron (ductile iron on STP frame sizes) construction. All Power Ends are backed by a 3 year warranty.
