A SERIES of tests and inspections carried out by Det Norske Veritas Survey has passed Aussie GMP 3” zinc free bronze pump with ease.
The pumps are of the self priming centrifugal design and offered by Australian Pump Industries in both close coupled and bare shaft configurations.
"Obtaining Survey approval for these pumps is a huge step forward," said Aussie Pump product manager, Michael Rowley.
"The DW certification provides clear evidence that the product is world class and suitable for any commercial or military marine application.”
Aussie GMP zinc free bronze bilge pumps are being used on patrol boats and fulfil a wide range of applications on fishing boats and commercial craft as well.
The successfully surveyed pumps come with 316 stainless steel fitting and are supplied with heavy duty mechanical seals. Special silicone carbide or tungsten carbide seals are available for abrasive application, ie where salt water is to be handled that may contain abrasive solids.
The pumps are fitted with big open style impellers and easy to remove suction cover plates that allow the pump to be serviced with maximum operator convenience.
