The DICKOW-pump, type SC, is a one or multi-stage, self-priming horizontal side-channel pump. The side-channel pump with its high differential head - also at low speed - has the advantage of operating more economically than normal centrifugal pumps applied for low capacity and high heads. Due to these facts, the side-channel pumps are able to solve many pumping problems in the chemical and petrochemical process plants. The SC-pumps are also able to prime empty suction lines after initially filling with liquid before start-up. The maximum allowable operating temperature is 240 C (465 F).
