A new version of the advanced design Australian Pump Industries “Mr. T” twin impeller self priming fire pumps have been released for agricultural application. Driven by a close coupled Yanmar 10 hp Japanese built diesel engine, these new fire pumps are available with both 2” or 3” ports depending on the flow and pressure required. The computer generated design of the fire pumps mean more water goes through the pump at high pressure leading to quite astonishing results and huge gains in fuel economy.

Features of the self priming fire pumps include:

  • These fire pumps can produce a maximum of up to 450 litres per minute flow with heads as high as 90 metres
  • The self priming fire pumps can suck from dams, streams or wells with an astonishing 7.6 metre direct vertical lift capacity
  • Aussie Mr T self priming pumps come with a big belly body with detachable suction port.   Being able to take off the suction port means you can easily service the pump’s check valve without complete dismantling
  • Two 7.5” diameter single piece closed impellers are another feature of the self priming pumps, which are matched to provide top performance, run in heavy duty volutes, purpose designed for maximum flow efficiency
“We traditionally sell the Mr. T with a fire fighting 3 way outlet” said Aussie Pumps Brad Farrugia.  “Then we started experimenting with 2” x 2” versions and then 3” x 2” versions and were amazed at the increased performance obtained in terms of flow and pressure combinations” he said. “We tested a number of diesel engines and found the 10 hp Yanmar ideal for this application” said Farrugia.   “its high torque and excellent lugging capability makes it ideal for sustained performance in difficult pumping applications.
