A Hale Flinger Slinger Pump Shaft ALFD is a replacement part for Hale fire pumps. It is a long, cylindrical shaft that connects the pump impeller to the pump housing. The slinger on the shaft helps to keep the pump lubricated and prevents dirt and debris from entering the pump.
The ALFD suffix on the part number indicates that the shaft is made of stainless steel. This makes it more resistant to corrosion than shafts made of other materials, such as carbon steel.
Hale Flinger Slinger Pump Shafts are used in a variety of Hale fire pumps, including the Q-142 pump. They are also used in some fire pumps made by other manufacturers.
