Beckson Specialty Transfer Pumps


Safety experts caution against the unsafe practice of siphoning petroleum by mouth, warning specially, that it can result in loss of life. Beckson's answer is the patented Siphon-Mate® pump; a combination displacement lift pump and siphon pump with valves suitable for transferring fuel. Pump half strokes to start flow. Once flow begins, fully extending the handle will allow siphoning provided that the source is higher in elevation than the receptacle.

EASY OPERATION! Begin pumping to start flow. Once flow begins, fully extending the handle will allow siphoning, provided that the source is higher in elevation than the receptacle. Siphon action stops when handle is depressed AND hose is removed from the source.

WARNING! Plan carefully for liquid to drain from pump and hose after dispensing. This is especially important with liquids other than potable water. Remove pump from container when not in use to prevent unintentional siphon action or unauthorized use.

SAFETY USAGE GUIDE FOR FLAMMABLE LIQUIDS
FOR YOUR PROTECTION - DO NOT BE A STATISTIC

Please be careful. The major dangers in storing or handling flammable liquids are those of fire and explosion. Containers should be grounded if made of conductive material and should not be near sources of sparks, open flames or hot surfaces. The container should be kept in an area where spillage (liquid or vapors) will not flow to an ignition source. DO NOT ALLOW SMOKING IN THE AREA. Be sure to provide adequate ventilation to prevent concentration of fumes. Remember, fumes of flammable liquids are highly explosive. Fire extinguishers of proper type to handle Class B fires and of proper size and quantity to handle the potential hazard should be readily available. Water is generally not suitable as an extinguisher of a Class B fire. Ensure means of safe disposal of any spillage before transferring. Liquids should only be transferred to an appropriate tank. If such a container is conductive then it should be connected to the container with a grounding strap to prevent static electric spark. Guidelines for handling flammable liquids can be obtained from the National Fire Protection Agency, Batterymarch Park, Quincy, MA 02269.
