Transfer Pump

Transfer Pump

Compatible with All Fuels including new blended Diesels, Solid Sate Cube pumps have low power requirements (about 1-2 amps at 12 volts) and operate without troublesome seals or diaphragms. Built-in pressure relief and are Self Priming to 300mm (we test our pumps to 500mm with no issues). They have a free flow rate of 2L per minute and 1.71L per minute when used as a transfer pump on a typical auxiliary tank application with 8mm fuel lines, and fuel filter installed.

One of the most important factors in the reliability of these pumps is the internal electronics and the sealing used during manufacture. We have tested several other cube pumps sourced from china and the US and found the best there is.

In one test we do, many of the cheaper pumps that are sold in the Australian market do not pass a water immersion test and stop immediately due to poor sealing. Others will only run for 10 or 15min after being submersed in the water. The pumps we use have to handle being submersed completely under water while pumping 120L of fuel, they are then tested for another 1000 hrs to ensure they keep running. This is extremely important when used on a 4wd as frequent river crossings can be an every day occurrence.

Note: Cube fuel pumps are not compatible with EFI fuel systems.

These pumps are also suitable for applications requiring an external electric fuel pump, including replacement of old mechanical pumps on low and high-pressure carburettor-equipped cars, vans, Motor Homes, farm equipment and light trucks or use as a Diesel lift pump, they can also be used to replace unreliable fuel pumps on Classics with 4cyl or 6cyl power output of up to 150bhp

Key features:

  • Fuel Compatibility: Compatible with petrol (gasoline), diesel, biodiesel, blended alcohol fuels and fuel additives.
  • Solid State Reliability: Proven on thousands of applications. No electrical contacts. No bearings or diaphragms to wear out or fatigue. Lasts four to five times longer than many other electric fuel pumps.
  • Easy to Install: Small size and two-bolt installation makes for easy fitment. For best results, mount the pump close to the fuel tank and below the liquid level.
  • Eliminates Vapour Lock: When properly installed on most vehicles a constant, smooth, dependable supply of fuel under pressure is assured in the hottest weather.

General Features:

  • 300mm minimum dry lift
  • 2L per minute free flow rate
  • 4-7 PSI
  • Transient Protection
  • State of the art Electronics
  • Sealed Electronics
  • Reverse Polarity protection
  • Built in check valve
  • 1.6 amp average
  • Self Priming and Self Regulating
  • Inlet And Outlet Thread Size: 1/8-27 NPTF (1/8 gas
  • Operating Temperature Range: -30C to 80C

Fitting:

Lightly oil the threads on the hose fittings. Apply torque in a continuous manner to 15 ft-lbs. The pump and fitting threads are dry seal threads which do not require thread sealant if the fittings are properly installed.

Apply a  74 micron fuel filter on the inlet side of the pump to protect the pump from contaminates in the fuel. This will ensure trouble free operation of the fuel pumps for many years.

Select a mounting location as close to the fuel tank as practical and not more than 300m above the bottom of the tank. Generally speaking, fuel pumps push fuel better than they draw fuel. The pump should generally be mounted with the outlet elevated above the inlet to assist with priming ability and also helps purge the system of air. Additionally select a location away from excessive heat sources.

Apply pump to a properly fused circuit of 3-5 amps.

Trouble Shooting:

If the pumps fails to make a clicking noise with power applied make sure there is proper power to the pump and the voltage is correct. Also check fuse, wire connections and proper grounding of the negative lead wire.

If the pump makes clicking noise but fails to deliver fuel make sure there is fuel in the tank and the filter is not clogged.
