Is my pump and centrifuge compatible?

Postby rah » Mon May 30, 2016 11:24 am

I found a real nice gear pump to pump into my centrifuge but im not sure if its too big as Ill have to reduce it down ... 700721.pdf ... gph-Brass/

I am currently looking for a motor. im looking at one that is 1 hp 1750rpm.

What do you think? Do I need to go buy a kit or can I rig this together?

That pump is way too big at 6 GPM at 75 psi. You only need 1 GPM for that CF. You could bypass the extra 5 GPM but its a waste of power.
