A new high performance 50mm motor pump designed specifically for chemical handling has been released by Australian Pump Industries .
Called the Aussie Pacer S2 series, the pump is designed to handle a wide variety of industrial chemicals used in beverage and food production.
Available in single phase or three phase, close coupled motor configuration, the new 2” pump features high flows and high pressure capabilities. Optional impellers mean that the Aussie Pacer S2 series is capable of providing heads of up to 22.5 metres with a maximum flow of up to 580 litres per minute.
The motors are supplied in two pole configuration but optional four pole versions are available. The new Aussie Pacer S2 series is available in a wide range of materials of construction including re-enforced polyester, Polypropylene and Ryton.
Fasteners are stainless steel and there is a wide range of elastomers that include Buna N, EPDM or Viton.
The key to the Aussie Pacer S2 series’ efficiency is its huge injection moulded body. The body allows the Aussie Pacer S2 series to self prime from sumps as low as 6 metres, quickly and efficiently. The body is ribbed for extra strength and features lock-down brackets to facilitate mounting.
A unique seal protection device, the Protek system fits between the pump and the electric motor, isolating the electric motor shaft from the liquid medium being pumped.
“We expect the new pump to be of real interest to the food and chemical industries,” said Aussie Pump’s Ashleigh Somerton.
“We can offer a range of mechanical seals in self lubricating ceramic, silicon carbide or even hastelloy C and non metallics,” she said.
