New Aussie Delivers
A new 3” high pressure Honda powered pump with the performance of a 4” pump has been released by Australian Pump Industries. Designed for high pressure water transfer, the big pump provides flows of up to 1,050 litres per minute (that’s 63,000 litres an hour), with a maximum head of 70 metres vertical lift.
The high performance 3” pump is powered by the new Honda GX series engine. The new Honda engine was chosen because it provides plenty of power so the pump can achieve it’s optimum performance. Honda has a market reputation for efficiency and reliability, and the engine is backed up with the Honda three year warranty.
Designed for efficient dam management, the high pressure pump can be used for irrigation, stockyard wash-down, and in it’s Aussie ‘Brigade Boss’ configuration it makes a first rate, village protection fire pump.
The secret of the pump’s performance is a unique design that employs a perfectly balanced, heavy duty closed impeller. The impeller runs in a matching volute, producing high efficiencies through large water passages.
“The pump is designed to give more litres of water for less litres of fuel” said Aussie Pumps’ Product Manager, Brad Farrugia. “It’s high efficiency means less horsepower is consumed. There’s also less wear and tear on the pump because of the higher flow rates,” he said.
Like all Aussie Quik Prime pumps, the new QP310SX offers outstanding self priming characteristics. The pump is capable of a direct vertical suction lift of 7.86 metres! That means draughting water from dams, creeks or shallow wells is easy, making the pump particularly suitable for water transport applications and even tanker mounting.
The pump owes it’s excellent self priming characteristics to the huge integrated water tank designed into the pump body. That big capacity tank means fast self priming, first time, every time.
The Aussie QP3310SX comes mounted in a heavy duty, powder coated, single piece steel frame with sub base and anti vibration mounts. Major pump components are manufactured from high grade marine aluminium and the top quality ceramic mechanical seal includes a separate seal sleeve to extend life and reduce maintenance costs.
The pump comes with a flanged suction port that makes servicing of the heavy duty check valve easy. No dismantling of the pump is required to carry out check valve service.
The best news for users is the pump’s absolutely free extended warranty. Like all Aussie Quik Prime pumps the new 3” high pressure gusher comes with an Aussie five year warranty. Australian Pump expects the new unit to be a real breakthrough in self priming pump performance.
“We’ve never seen a 3” pump that produces this much water at high pressure,” said Farrugia. “It’s performance is superior to some 4” pumps. A big bonus is being able to get away with 3” hose or pipe instead of cumbersome and expensive 4”,” he said.
