AUSTRALIAN Pump Industries has released the "Pro-Tek" guard system that provides the ‘ultimate’ in engine or electric motor protection.
Seal failures in pumps can frequently lead to the ingress of water to the drive unit. This in turn can result in expensive and inconvenient engine or electric motor break downs that are costly and inefficient.
The Aussie Pro-Tek consists of a cast housing that incorporates a coupling and drive system that slots neatly between the engine and pump.
In the event of pump seal failure, the liquid being pumped will leak into the housing area where it is diverted thus preventing it from travelling along the shaft and into the engine or electric motor.
"Simple seal failures that can be repaired relatively inexpensively, can result in catastrophic and expensive drive failures if not detected fast,” said Aussie Pump product manager Craig Bridgement.
“The Aussie drive guard protects expensive drive systems."
