Moving dirty flood water requires pumps designed to handle a high solid content.
Australian Pump Industries has the largest range of self priming trash pumps with flows up to 6,000 litres per minute.
Available with either Honda petrol or Yanmar diesel engines, they come in a range of configurations from 2” through to 6”.
Aussie QP trash pumps are ideal for flood mitigation and construction site dewatering duties where the water is often contaminated with debris. All QP trash pumps are designed to handle a high percentage of solids in suspension. Their big, open, “non-clog” style impellers are made from high SG grade cast iron.
An exclusive bronze-copper seal is supplied as standard equipment. The seal is abrasion resistant and is claimed to outlast conventional mechanical seals by up to six times.
The Aussie QP range of trash pumps feature advanced double volutes for fast priming, efficiency and self cleaning. They also include a front cleanout port that enables the operator to clear the pump of debris within a matter of minutes. The cleanout ports can be opened without disconnecting suction or delivery pipe work, a major advantage over conventional self priming pumps.
“The Aussie trash pumps make dewatering a flooded construction site after rain a breeze because of their self priming ability and serviceability,” said Aussie Pumps product manager Brad Farrugia. “The pumps are easy to clean out if they get choked because the pipework doesn’t need to be disconnected,” he said.
The Aussie pumps come in a heavy duty galvanised roll frames with anti vibration mounts supplied as standard equipment. The pumps feature excellent efficiencies with a maximum head to 27 metres and will self prime from 7.6m.
All Aussie QP self priming centrifugal trash pumps are covered by a unique five year pump end warranty. Manufactured under an ISO 9001 quality management system, Australian Pump is able to offer consumers this guarantee for no extra cost.
