Australian Pump Industries introduces a new 6-inch heavy duty trash pump
powered by a Kubota 24.8hp water cooled, three cylinder diesel engine. The
Aussie QP60TD/D1105 produces huge flows up to 4,200 litres per minute, and can
self prime vertically up to 8 metres. The robust trash pump combines high flow capability
with a simple design.
“Wet priming trash pumps allow portability and freedom from a designated
power source as well as the ability to be placed right at the water’s edge,”
said Aussie Pumps’ Product Manager, Brad Farrugia.
Relatively inexpensive with a lower operating cost compared to dry prime
pumps, wet prime trash pumps are ideal for open pit and sumping applications,
where the suction lift is less than 8 metres vertically. The Aussie
QP60TD/D1105 can also be used for bypass pumping, when there is sufficient
retention time to allow for the pump to prime.
Key features and benefits of the new Aussie QP60TD/D1105 trash pumps
include big non-clog style impellers manufactured from high SG cast iron for pumping
dirty water and solids in suspension; hydraulic design of the impeller and
volute superbly balanced to obtain the best result in flow pressure while still
allowing the pump to pass solids of up to 40mm in diameter; heavy duty cast
iron body with a ductile hardened wear plate supplied as standard; and flanged
bolt-on style 6″ inlet and outlet ports allowing easy adaption to camlock or
bauer style fittings.
Operators can simply release four toggle style hinged levers that open
up the pump’s face plate hinges for cleaning out the bowl or servicing the
impeller without dismantling the body or pipework. A separate drainage sump is
also conveniently accessed, enabling easy draining of the pump, which also
allows leftover sediment to be flushed out easily.
An oil bathed mechanical seal made in tungsten carbide provides long,
trouble-free operation, even in trash laden or muddy liquid applications.
The three-cylinder Kubota D1105 diesel engine that powers the Aussie trash
pump comes with a number of safety features including low oil, high temperature
shutdown plus an emergency stop button.
Aussie Pumps offers a free extended five-year warranty on their entire range
of poly pumps.
“This is a testament to the product, and being powered by a high quality
Kubota powered diesel engine ensures the customer has complete peace of mind,”
The Aussie QP60TD/D1105 is mounted on a sturdy skid steel base, which
has an integrated 60-litre long range fuel tank that allows the pump to run for
up to 10 hours at maximum speed. An integrated centre mounted lifting bar is
also supplied for ease of movement.
The unit’s compact design allows the unit to be trailer mounted or
transported by utility vehicle if necessary. The pump is also available with a full
mine spec upgrade option.
