Explosion-proof electric submersible pumps

The XP-JX Series from BJM Pumps are FM-approved for use in Class I, Division 1, Groups C and D hazardous locations.

BJM XP-XJ seriesThe corrosion-resistant, FM-rated explosion-proof submersible pumps are designed for top performance. All wet parts, such as the impeller, wear-plate and pump-housing are made of Cast 316 stainless material. The elastomers, such as o-rings, lip seals and gaskets are made of FKM material. The standard power cable is made of oil-resistant material. Special installation can be made with EPDM power-cable and elastomers; BUNA (nitril) also available.

The units feature three-seal motor protection that creates two independent mechanical seals. The lower seal is made of silicon carbide/silicon carbide and upper seal is made of carbon/ceramic. An additional lip seal has been installed to help prevent abrasives such as dirt, silt or sand, from entering into the seal chamber. Standard elastomers are Buna N, however, FKM material is optional.

The units offer greater motor protection. The air-filled motor has winding protection and (NEMA) Class F motor insulation. Seal leakage detection in the seal chamber offers early warning should water enter the chamber.

The epoxy-coated motor housing is made with a two-part epoxy that protects the motor from exposure to the surrounding liquid.

The pumps’ hardened cast iron stands up to rough handling and pumping sandy water-- unlike pumps with soft resin impellers or plastic exterior components.
The units come with a 50 foot power cord as standard.
