Users of automatic pumps systems for domestic or farm applications are normally limited by small horse power and pump that are designed to be low cost and consequence low performance.
Australian Pump Industries has released a range of big capacity automatic jet pumps, designed for both big houses and farm station applications.
Called the Aussie Jetmax 400 series, they feature large jet style, close grained cast iron bodies with bronze impellers for big performance.
Jetmax 400 series offer users flows of up to 165 litres per minute and pressure of up to 90 PSI.
“These big Aussie pumps produce great performance but use very little power” said Aussie Pumps John Hales.
“They are designed to be particularly power / cost efficient and can run off a 2 horse power, single phase electric motor. That’s smaller than many Australian swimming pool pumps!” he said.
Aussie Jetmax 400 series pumps are available with traditional large capacity tanks and pressure switches or a unique heavy duty Aussie Press-Control switch, that automatically turns the pump on and off as demand is created by the opening of a valve or tap.
Additionally, Aussie Press-Control offers a fail safe facility, that will turn the pump off if it senses that the pump has run out of water.
Like all Aussie Jetmax pumps the 400 series comes with stainless steel shaft and stainless steel mechanical seal. The motors are protected by a thermal overload and are designed to be vermin proof.
