Model: Tsurumi TM Series
A new range of submersible pumps designed for corrosive liquids including seawater has been released by Australian Pump Industries. Designed and manufactured by Tsurumi Pump, the saltwater subs are intended for a wide range of duties from aquaculture to chemical spill containment.
Called the TM Series, the new pumps are particularly suitable for applications where corrosion is an issue. The stator housing is titanium whilst the pump casing, stand and motor cap components are all manufactured from FRP resin moulded material. This unique material is completely compatible with hypersalinity liquids.
The pumps are compact in design and are available in either 50 or 60 cycle, single- or three-phase motor drive. They range from pumps capable of 240 lpm flow right up to 350 lpm. Heads range from 9 m to 15m.
“The entire TM range can be equipped with floats for automatic operation,” said Aussie Pumps Product Manager, Craig Bridgement. “Duplexing systems, that’s two pumps located side-by-side operating on an automatic alternating model, are also available in the TM Series,” he said.
“The beauty of the Tsurumi auto-duplexing system is that the pumps will operate automatically without extensive control panels,” explained Bridgement. “It’s an ideal system for installations where one pump is normally enough for the capacity, but occasionally drainage or pump out of a bilge may require more flow.”
TM Series pumps complement Tsurumi SFQ pumps made from solid cast 316 stainless steel for a larger flow and head requirement.
The TM Series will be ideal for any saltwater application from drainage of fishponds, aquaculture and even decorative saltwater waterfalls!
