Fire-Ball 425 – Air-operated piston pumps for oil or grease

Fire-Ball 425: the choice for your most demanding high volume applications

Fire-Ball 425 are air-operated piston pumps for oil or grease. It is the pump of choice for your most demanding high volume applications.

The Fire-Ball 425 is perfect for fluid oil transfer in high volume and longer distance applications such as truck shop service fleet facilities and in-plant applications.

 

Product features

  • Corrosion-resistant design utilizes liquid salt nitriding, nickel plating, stainless steel, aluminum and chrome on key components for longer life
  • Few moving parts in the air motor assembly means less downtime and low repair cost
  • Displacement rods have minimal wear due to a proprietary Graco manufacturing process
  • Large air porting design provides efficient use of compressed air supply for continuous pump operation without icing

Fire-Ball series

  • Durable. Thick cast aluminum air motor housing offers unmatched durability.
  • Reduce Downtime. Displacement rods have minimal wear due to a proprietary Graco manufacturing process.
  • Fewer Repairs. Fewer moving parts in the air motor assembly means less downtime and low repair cost.
  • Superior Sealing. Non-metallic poppet valves offer positive sealing performance, even with contaminated “dirty” air environments for long life without repair.
  • Reduced Icing. Large air porting design provides efficient use of compressed air supply for continuous pump operation and reduced icing.
  • Extended Seal Life. In-line pump design aligns the air motor piston and fluid piston rods to maximize seal life.
  • Corrosion-Resistant. Corrosion-resistant design utilizes liquid salt nitriding, nickel plating, stainless steel, aluminum and chrome on key components for longer life.
