When Port Macquarie Sea Rescue operators, Geoff Shelton, Ken Fletcher and Peter Elson needed a portable diesel fire pump that could handle salt water, they opted for Australian Pump Industries (Aussie Pumps). 

Australian Pump Industries offer a wide range of portable diesel driven marine fire pumps, including the Aussie Seamaster.

Port Macquarie Sea Rescue selected a zinc free bronze self priming centrifugal high pressure pump powered by a Yanmar L100 10 HP electric start diesel engine.

The bronze 2” self priming pump delivers a 60 p.s.i pressure, and provides flows of up to 450 litres per minute or 27,000 litres per hour. The high pressure characteristics make the bronze Aussie centrifugal pump suitable for marine fire fighting.

The pump can self prime from the depths of 6 metres, enabling the Sea Rescue operators to throw a suction line over the side and crank up the engine.

The centrifugal high pressure pump from Australian Pump Industries comes with a heavy duty mechanical seal and also doubles up as a salvage pump. It can also be used on deck wash down or bilge pump out applications.
