Australian Pump Industries showcased a wide range of new pump products at this year’s Dowerin field day.
The entire product range along with expert advice was available from the Honda Shop on stand MOTORING 16.
Some of the products displayed at the stand included the latest versions of the Aussie Fire Chief, Australia’s leading high pressure portable fire pumps.
Describing the advantages of the fire pumps, Michael Bartier of Honda Shop commented that the latest Aussie Fire Chief featured a 5-year warranty and a genuine Japanese Honda engine in addition to heavy duty steel skids, anti vibration mounts, metal caps on outlet ports and a huge single impeller that outperformed competitors’ twin impeller pumps.
Aussie poly pumps were also exhibited at the Honda Shop. Manufactured from 30% glass filled polyester, these pumps are ideal for pumping aggressive liquid fertilisers that damage conventional aluminium or cast iron transfer pumps from the inside.
Marketed under the Aussie Smart Pump banner, the Aussie poly pumps are impervious to the effects of aggressive chemicals. The latest version displayed at Dowerin 2011 included the big 3” pump capable of pumping up to 1,100 litres per minute, assuring faster turnaround times for spray operators, boosting productivity and having a dramatic impact on the bottom line.
Tsurumi submersible pumps, being reintroduced by Australian Pumps to the Australian market are also available through the Honda Shop. Tsurumi is a Japanese company based in Osaka, and a world-leading manufacturer of electro submersible pumps that are suitable for large stock waste applications.
Available in single or three phased configuration, with or without float switches, the Tsurumi electro submersible pumps can handle compressible solids making them ideal for piggery, dairy or poultry farm effluent pits.
Mr Steven Lord of Goomalling won the Honda Shop Dowerin prize of an Aussie Fire Chief.
The Honda Shop was supported by Aussie Pumps Area Manager, Paul Justin who handled detailed technical questions on pump application and selection.
