This Action Pump 3004 hand-operated rotary lever pump is constructed with a Ryton (PPS, polyphenylene sulfide) body for high-temperature rigidity and resistance to chemicals and flame and PTFE (polytetrafluoroethylene) seals for resistance to chemicals, and is suitable for dispensing a variety of chemicals. This pump is capable of transferring material at 6 gallons per minute (gpm) at 135 revolutions per minute (rpm) with temperatures up to 140 degrees F. It has a 1" National Pipe Taper (NPT) threaded port and a 3/4" Unified Fine (UNF) outlet port, and comes with a 40" 304 stainless steel suction tube assembly, a 1-1/2" to 2" bung adapter, and a 304 stainless steel spout. This rotary lever drum pump is suitable for a variety of industrial and commercial applications.

Pumps use mechanical action to move liquids, gases, or slurries (solids suspended in a liquid or gas). The mechanical action is categorized as either positive displacement (PD) or kinetic. PD pumps capture and release discrete amounts of flow into a chamber and then force it out. Some examples of PD pumps are fuel and oil pumps in cars, pumps in hydraulic systems, and bicycle pumps. Kinetic pumps move liquids, gases, or slurries by transferring energy from the pump's movement to the flow. They use an impeller to draw the flow in, add energy to the flow, and move it through a volute (a spiral funnel through which the flow moves), and into the system. Some examples of kinetic pumps include centrifugal (the most common pump in industrial applications), in-line pumps, sump pumps, and suction pumps. Energy sources for all types of pumps include wind power, manual operation, electricity, and gasoline or diesel fuel.
