Little Giant 2E-38NY Permanently Lubricated Submersible or In-line Pump

Part Number 502038

FORMERLY known as 2E-38NY Dual purpose oil-filled pump that may be used totally submersed or in-line (fed with pipe or hose). These pumps feature an oil-filled motor housing with a radial lip seal on the motor shaft. They have an exceptional life expectancy because the oil serves as a continuous lubricant for all moving parts and the shaft seal. This non-toxic dielectric oil, often paired with an aluminium, cast iron or plastic housing, also helps dissipate the heat build-up found in a continuously running pump. For commercial, industrial and home applications including statuary fountains, water displays, air conditioners, machine tool coolants, and many other applications where liquid must be transferred or recirculated.
