Australian Pump Industries have introduced a new high capacity 2” water pump that has been designed to move water fast. The Aussie Quik Prime QP209 water pump offers 25% increase in flow rates over conventional 2” pumps, with a maximum flow of up to 800 litres per minute, that’s 48,000 litres per hour.
The water pump unit offers self priming characteristics, with the ability to draught water through a 7.6 metre vertical lift, meaning farmers can pull water from dams, tanks, creeks or rivers with ease.
“We found that farmers were looking for shorter load cycles, more efficiencies and lower operating costs” said Aussie Pumps’ Brad Farrugia.
“The extra flow available from the QP209, without compromising pressure performance, shortens cycle times dramatically and can cut 25% off the pump fuel bill” he said.
The water pump features a big, open, cast iron impeller, that is capable of passing small solids in suspension, meaning it can even handle silty water without problems.
The 2” water pump is powered by either Honda petrol or Yanmar diesel engines and can load a 2400 litre poly tank in less than 5 minutes.
“We’ve seen farmers trying to carry out these chores using fire fighting pumps with high pressure and low flows. The extra cost in fuel is huge, not to mention the inconvenience of having to wait around while the tank gets loaded” said Farrugia.
“This 2” pump will outperform some 3” pumps on the market, but enables the operator to get away with only using 2” hose for both suction and delivery” he said.
The Aussie QP209 heavy duty 2” water pump comes with a 5 year pump end guarantee.
