6 x 6 Diesel Jet Pump Package Description Peerless 3 Stage Model 5TUT 16 Jet Pump Units are powered by GM 8V71 Series Diesel Engines and John Deere Diesels Air Start, Skid Mounted with Spark Arrestors PTO – Twin Disc SP-214 Packing style – Teadit 5/8” graphite impregnated, style ” suction hose with foot valve and Fig. 100 hammer unions 2 – 2 ½” Discharge valves Discharge 1400 gpm at 400 psi Equipped with Emergency Shut down 125 gallon fuel capacity Dimensions- –GM Series - 8’ H x 12’ 8” L x 5’ W Weight - 12,000 lbs. –John Deere Series - 8’ H x 14’ L x 4’ 7”W Weight - 10,400 lbs. Jet Pump with a GM Series Engine
Daily Maintenance Procedures Perform visual walk around inspection. Inspect skid plugs, skid bolts, rain caps, fuel lines, oil, water, and fuel levels, all ball valve handles. Perform visual walk around inspection. Inspect skid plugs, skid bolts, rain caps, fuel lines, oil, water, and fuel levels, all ball valve handles. Check PTO for positive engagement or disengagement. Grease all zerts. Check PTO for positive engagement or disengagement. Grease all zerts. Check and inspect packing glands, air bleed valves, and pump housing Check and inspect packing glands, air bleed valves, and pump housing Inspect emergency shut down and reset blower flap. Inspect emergency shut down and reset blower flap. Check air starter and fill oiler if necessary ( air tool oil is recommended) Check air starter and fill oiler if necessary ( air tool oil is recommended) Inspect suction hose, fittings, and foot valve Inspect suction hose, fittings, and foot valve Inspect discharge valve and jet hose Inspect discharge valve and jet hose Our Effort Makes a Difference
Engine Control Panel Engine Monitoring Gauges Starting Instructions Engine Start Button Engine Stop Button Engine Throttle Emergency Shut Down
Proper Packing Adjustment Instructions Pump will be shipped with proper front and rear packing gland settings Water must drip out of packing gland to cool graphite packing. Burnt packing will cause priming problems. To adjust – turn hex headed nut 1/6 th of a turn clockwise. Equally adjust front packing. Make sure that there is a constant drip of water coming from both packing glands.
Twin Disc Power Take Off Clutch Information Model SP 214-P1 Self Lubricated Bearings Torque setting – 289 ft. lbs. Grease daily PTO must be ENGAGED for proper operation If not knuckled in proper position- Damage will occur Warning If the PTO gets hot, smokes, or smells burnt, shut down unit immediately.
Jet Pump Priming Instructions 1.Suction hose must be tight and free of air leaks, submerge foot valve 3’ – 4’ 2.Start engine and run at idle speed 3.Make sure PTO Clutch is disengaged 4.Close all 2 ½ “ discharge valves 5.After method to fill pump housing is done, engage the PTO and increase engine speed to 1/3 of full throttle 6.Open the 2 ½” discharge valve slowly. Discharge hose should fill immediately. 7.Once discharge hose fills and hardens, increase engine speed to desired pump pressure 8.If pump fails to prime- repeat steps 1 thru 6 Make sure all priming valves are closed once pump housing is filled. If problems continue, call Morgan City Rentals. If fresh water flooding method is used, connect water hose to crowfoot fitting on suction side of pump, open valve behind the fitting and open the valve from the air siphon to the main pump. Flood the pump until water escapes from the air siphon, close both valves. Proceed with priming. If air siphon is used, open valve from siphon to main pump. When a steady stream of water and air is detected close the air valve and valve from the siphon to the main pump. Proceed with priming. If using the hand primer pump, open valve from the hand pump to main pump. Close the valve to air siphon. Stoke handle slowly until it becomes hard to pump. (Approx. 90 strokes). Close valve from hand pump to main pump. Proceed with priming.

Jet Pump Pigging and Flushing Procedures When Pigging and Flushing pipelines, these safety precautions MUST be taken: 1. A check valve must be installed on the discharge valve to prevent back pressure to the pump. 2. A by –pass valve must be partially open to prevent overheating of the pump. 3. Morgan City Rentals recommends that Titan high pressure jet hose be used with 3 stage pumps and on pigging and flushing projects. Failure to observe these warnings will results in possible injury and damage to the pump
Jet Pump Troubleshooting Guide Failure to Deliver fluid or pressure Failure to Deliver fluid or pressure –Pump not primed Re prime unit; foot valve not completely submerge or clogged –Pump not up to speed Motor overload, increase driver speed –Discharge head to high Check that all discharge valves are open and discharge line is free from obstruction –Air leaks on suction side Tighten packing. Check for leaks in suction line and fittings. Close all valves on pump housing –Foot valve to small /damaged Replace foot valve –Burnt Smell PTO/ Clutch problem or packing too tight –Pump Vibrating Mis-alignment or debris in pump housing or possible worn bearing
