WARNING

Do not operate until pump is initially primed and connected to constant supply of clean compressant liquid. IF RUN
DRY, PUMP WILL BE DAMAGED. Always use strainer to prevent sand and scale from entering the pump with liquid.
Certain operating conditions in combination with water hardness may result in excessive lime deposits within the
pump, causing it to bind. Should this condition be evident, flush pump with a solvent at regular intervals.
This pump has been drained and flushed with a water-soluble preservative oil prior to shipment. After pump has been
in service, do not store without draining as specified within this Bulletin. Pump can be damaged by freezing. Dispose
of oil properly.
USE CAUTION when removing inlet screens. Any foreign material on screen may fall into pump and cause extensive
damage at start-up.
Base must be mounted to a leveled foundation and final coupling alignment done during installation.

NOTES:
1. Typical piping arrangements shown; make certain to refer to the NASH installation drawing(s) supplied with your unit for
specific piping requirements and seal supply pressure.
2. The inlet check valve must be installed in horizontal line only for proper operation. An inlet check valve is not requir ed for
filter applications or where vacuum will not be maintained on pump shutdown.
3. The distance between the pump and the separator should be kept to a minimum. The liquid level in the separator should
never be allowed to be higher than the pump shaft centerline. The pump discharge connections and separator inlet
connection are not always the same size. Refer to the NASH installation drawing(s) supplied with your unit for connection
sizes.
4. Stainless steel temporary screens will be supplied by NASH for protection from foreign material during the start-up period.
One screen (coarse mesh) will be supplied with iron pumps. Two screens (fine and coarse mesh) will be supplied with
stainless steel pumps. The fine mesh screen should be installed on the upstream side of the coarse mesh screen. All
temporary screens should be cleaned after initial start-up. When all debris has been removed, the screens should be
removed.
5. If a slightly elevated pump discharge is necessary, an equalizer line is used to balance the liquid level between the pump
and the separator.
6. Avoid long vertical drops (refer to dimension X) of 10 feet (3 meters) or more directly into the pump by diverting the stream
as shown. If the gas stream has a possibility of dirt carry-over, install a dirt pocket. A dirt pocket is mandatory for stainless
steel pump installations.
7. Install clean-out in this location when temporary screen is used in alternate location (item 11). If temporary screen is
installed in preferred location (item 10), use dirt pocket (item 12) for clean out.

specific piping requirements and seal supply pressure.
2) A bleeder line located around the inlet check valve allows venting the compressor on shutdown.
3) A start-up bypass valve is required for proper start-up and should be capable of passing the full rated flow from the compressor.
Please note: A bypass line is not required for the SC and Vectra product line.
4) The inlet check valve prevents a slug of water from rushing into the inlet piping when the compressor stops. The discharge
check valve maintains system pressure when the compressor stops. Check valves must be installed in horizontal lines for
proper operation.
5) The distance between the compressor and the separator should be kept to a minimum. The liquid level in the separator
should never be allowed to be higher than the compressor shaft centerline. The compressor discharge connections and
separator inlet connections are not always the same size. Refer to the NASH installation drawing(s) supplied with your unit
for connection sizes.
6) Stainless steel temporary screens will be supplied by NASH for protection from foreign material during the start-up period.
One screen (coarse mesh) will be supplied with iron compressors. Two screens (fine and coarse mesh) will be supplied
with stainless steel compressors. The fine mesh screen should be installed on the upstream side of the coarse mesh
screen. All temporary screens should be cleaned after initial start-up. When all debris has been removed, the screens
should be removed.
7) If a slightly elevated compressor discharge is necessary, an equalizer line is used to balance the liquid level between the
compressor and the separator.
8) Avoid long vertical drops (refer to dimension X, of 10 feet (3 meters) or more, directly into the compressor by diverting the
stream as shown. If the gas stream has a possibility of dirt carry-over, install a dirt pocket. A dirt pocket is mandatory for
stainless steel compressor installations.
9) Install a clean-out in this location when temporary screen is used in alternate location (item 11). If temporary screen is
installed in preferred location (item 14), use dirt pocket (item 16) for clean-out.

NOTES:
1) Typical piping arrangements shown; make certain to refer to the NASH installation drawing(s) supplied with your unit for
specific piping requirements and seal supply pressure.
2) A bleeder line located around the inlet check valve allows venting the compressor on shutdown.
3) The inlet check valve prevents a slug of water from rushing into the inlet piping when the compressor stops. The discharge
check valve maintains system pressure when the compressor stops. Check valves must be installed in horizontal lines for
proper operation.
4) The distance between the compressor and the separator should be kept to a minimum. The liquid level in the separator
should never be allowed to be higher than the compressor shaft centerline. The compressor discharge connections and
separator inlet connections are not always the same size. Refer to the NASH installation drawing(s) supplied with your unit
for connection sizes.
5) Stainless steel temporary screens will be supplied by NASH for protection from foreign material during the start-up period.
One screen (coarse mesh) will be supplied with iron compressors. Two screens (fine and coarse mesh) will be supplied
with stainless steel compressors. The fine mesh screen should be installed on the upstream side of the coarse mesh
screen. All temporary screens should be cleaned after initial start-up. When all debris has been removed, the screens
should be removed.
6) With a slightly elevated compressor discharge, an equalizer line is used to balance the liquid level between the compressor
and the separator.
7) Avoid long vertical drops (refer to dimension X, of 10 feet (3 meters) or more, directly into the compressor by diverting the
stream as shown. If the gas stream has a possibility of dirt carry-over, install a dirt pocket. A dirt pocket is mandatory for
stainless steel compressor installations.
8) Install a clean-out in this location when temporary screen is used in alternate location (item 11). If temporary screen is
installed in preferred location (item 14), use dirt pocket (item 16) for clean-out.

A shim kit is supplied by NASH for all pumps that
are mounted on a common pump/motor base. The
shims have a total thickness of approximately 1/16
inch (1.6 mm) and are used to make the final align-
ment of the motor to the pump. The shims are lami-
nated, even though they may appear solid. Each
lamination is 0.003 inch (0.076 mm). To obtain the
