When someone asks me about a Yamada 1/2” pump, most people think about the NDP-15 series pump. However, there is another option called the DP-15. This pump uses the NDP-15 polypropylene liquid side, but uses the DP-10 air section.
The DP-15 is only pump available with a polypropylene liquid end and has the same elastomer options as the NDP-15 series pumps. Be advised: there is a significant difference in the maximum flow rates. The DP-15 series has a maximum flow rate of 7.4 GPM, while the NDP-15 series has a 13.5 GPM maximum flow rate.
While the NDP-15 series is good for higher flow rates, the DP-15 is ideal for low flow rates, extended dead head and dispensing applications. Both pumps share a common liquid end kit, but require different air motor kits. The DP-15 uses a K115-AM air motor kit and the NDP-15 uses a K15-AM motor kit.
