New hydraulic drive salt water pump

Australian Pump Industries has released a hydraulic drive version of the Aussie 3” poly pump suitable for handling salt water.

Ideally suited to the live fish industry, the new pump can be run from existing hydraulic systems (winch drive or steering gear controls).

The hydraulic motor provides great power and torque to the pump that is compact and virtually silent.

Aussie poly pumps are used in corrosive liquid applications including brine, salt water and diesel fuel.

Manufactured from 30 per cent glass filed polyester, they provide tremendous corrosion resistance. A wide range of elastomers that included EPDM, Bun N and Viton are available for specific chemical applications.

The 3” pump with hydraulic drive produces big flows to 1100L per minute with pressures to 40 psi (28 metres head).

The pumps have excellent self-priming characteristics due to their big bowl design and integrated check valve. They are capable of a vertical suction lift in excess of 6m.

The hydraulic drive version can be operated in either a closed centre or open centre system.
