6 inch Trash Pump

Miller’s Contractors have slashed the time taken to load their 35,000 litre road tankers to 6 minutes by using an Aussie 6” trash pump.

Pumps: 6″ Muck Shifter

Model: MQ600TD

Victorian based Miller Contractors recently put a huge Aussie MQ600TD 6” trash pump on the task of fast filling 50,000 litre road tankers. The big pump replaced smaller pumps with Millers seeking to cut their loading times dramatically. And cut that time they did. In fact as Jay Miller put it “loading time was simply slashed” We are loading our Articulated 35000 litre trucks in under 6 minutes!

The big pump does a huge 6,000 litres per minute flow and produces a maximum vertical discharge head of 46 metres.  That’s 64.9 p.s.i.

The pump design is common to the whole Aussie Pump trash pump range, featuring a large non-clog impeller as the heart of the system.  The impeller is capable of passing solids up to 3” in diameter (76mm)!  An easy clean out port mounted at the front of the machine enables the whole pump chamber to be cleaned of debris within the period of a couple of minutes in case of a pump “choke”.

The pump will self prime to a vertical lift of 7.6 metres, making it easy to load from dams, creeks or streams.  It is powered by a 60 HP Deutz air cooled 4 cylinder diesel engine with electric start and built in safety shut down equipment.  The shut down device activates in the event of low oil pressure, high oil temperature, and/or vee belt failure.

Sealing for the pump is provided by an oil lubricated tungsten titanium carbide seal designed to handle even abrasive slurry type liquids.  A control panel is shock mounted in a water resistant housing and includes hour meter, ammeter, tachometer, and alternator failure lights.

Millers specified the machine be mounted on a heavy duty trailer with centre mounted lifting bar.

“We like the way the self priming design allows the machine to prime fast, without air compressors or vacuum pumps” said Jay Miller.

“We couldn’t be more delighted with the performance of the pump, and we’ve never seen tankers fill so fast. In some situations we have eliminated the need for 2 water tankers.
