A NEW heavy duty 3" motor pump from Australian Pump Industries provides high flow and high pressure combined with the advantage of self priming.
Australian Pump says the priming feature enables users to start the pump by direct or remote method without the tedious task of having to prime the entire suction line.
Claimed to be ideal for industrial process applications, the big pump, called the Aussie B3XR/A is manufactured from close grained cast iron and fitted with an open style impeller. The open impeller will pass small solids in suspension without clogging.
"The big pump produces 500 litres per minute flow, that is 30,000 litres an hour, at 50psi," Aussie Pump product manager Mike Rowley said.
This makes it suitable for process plants or mining operations where the movement of water is an essential part of day-to-day operations.
The pump is close-coupled to a 10hp, 3-phase, 415V motor making it compact and easy to install. The motor is supplied as standard with foot mounts that can be bolted directly to hard wood, concrete or steel pump station mounts.
