AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries’ Aussie Seamaster diesel powered salt water pumps have been selected for the important Armidale patrol boat project.
The Armidale is the sleek new patrol boat selected by the Royal Australian Navy to replace the aging Fremantle Class vessels stationed in Australia's north.
The Aussie Seamaster operates as a salt water and oily waste salvage pump. It also has ability to operate as a great light weight emergency fire pump.
The machine offers excellent weight to performance characteristics and is powered by a Yanmar air cooled industrial engine developing 4.8 horsepower.
The Aussie 2" self priming salt water pump manufactured from 30% glass filled polyester, is a revolution in pump logic and construction.
"Using this unique polymer material provides advantages that provide super light weight with corrosion resistance not found in conventional pump material," said Product Manager, John Whiteley.
The 2" pump is provided with an elastomer kit of Buna N material that is compatible with a wide range of liquids that include salt water, brine, fresh water, diesel fuel and oily waste liquids.
Its big flow capacity produces flows of up to 650 lpm whilst its maximum head, at 3500rpm, is 37m (52psi).
The pump has an open style impeller that enables it to pump small solids in suspension and has an easy to locate priming port and drain plugs.
The Seamaster comes in a heavy duty galvanised steel frame with anti-vibration rubber engine mounts standard equipment.
