Franklin Electric
4" Submersible Motors
6" Submersible Motor
Super Hurricane
  • Franklin's single phase submersible control boxes are suitable for outdoor mounting with operation over temperature range of +14° F to + 122° F
  • Start and run winding overloads protect the motor from failure due to abnormal operating conditions
  • Available in 2,3,5 HP ratings, the DELUXE Control box with a magnetic line contactor eliminates the need for auxiliary contactors and heavy duty pressure switches
  • A heavy duty terminal strip with box type lugs makes it easier to install up to #2 AWG wire
  • Ground screws provide a means for grounding the control box to the power supply ground
These motors are built for dependable operation in 4 diameter or larger water wells. Temperature and time rating continuous in 86°F (30°c) water at 1/4 ft./sec. Flow past motor. Rotation: 1Ø, CCW facing shaft end. 3Ø, electrically and mechanically reversible.
