Australian Pump Industries has released a new 1 inch self priming bronze marine pump, the Aussie B1KQA. The pump features good self priming characteristics and has the ability to draft water from up to 6 metres, and optimum flow and pressure performance figures.
The pump will siphon 140 of litres per minute and has a maximum head of 16 metres. The Aussie B1KQA is available in either electric or motor driven 12, 24 or 40 volt configurations or in a bare shaft version. As a bare shaft pump, the pump unit can be long coupled and driven from petrol or diesel engines and from the main engine PTO. An electrically operated centrifugal clutch kit is also available.
Like all Aussie GMP marine pumps, the B1KQA is manufactured from top quality, zinc free bronze and features an open style impeller to pass small solids in suspension.
The pump comes with a 316 grade stainless steel shaft and stainless steel fasteners and is ideal for bilge pump out, deck wash down or water recirculation on trawlers, work boats or small ferries. The simple ISO9001 grade design enables easy servicing as the parts are readily available at a low cost.
