Looking for 5GPM @ 2 ft head Magnetic pump

Looking for 5GPM @ 2 ft head Magnetic pump

I am looking water re-circulating pump for a consumer product in a cold (around 0 degrees) environment.  
Pump specs are as follows:
(1) Flow rate: 1 to 5 GPM  @ 1 to 2 feet of head
(2) Electric : 1 Phase 2 Pole-Continuous duty, 120 V, 60 HZ
(3) Operation Environment : 0 to 25 degrees centigrade,
100 % humidity  
(4) Magnetic pump or magnetically driven pump
(5) Parts must be U.L recognized or NSF approvable
(6) prefers totally enclosed pump
(7) Bi-directional preferred

I would appreciate, if anybody can tell me where I can find such a pump. Any pointers in this direction, will also be appreciated.


RE: Looking for 5GPM @ 2 ft head Magnetic pump

I'd check around and see if anyone you know has a subscription to Chemical Engineering Magazine.  They publish a yearly buyer's guide, the 2003 copy has about 50 magnetic drive pump vendors listed.

RE: Looking for 5GPM @ 2 ft head Magnetic pump

Look at March Manufacturing or Little Giant Pump.  Not sure what they have that would fit your requirements but they have a wide variety of mag drive pumps.  A google search should bring up their sites.  I don't have them handy.

RE: Looking for 5GPM @ 2 ft head Magnetic pump

I recommend Little Giant Pump and it has a wide variety of water pond pumps, you can get it in Lowe.  I have one with 5 gpm/300 gph with a head of 5 ft three years ago and is still running.
