FPI Pumps Inc’s Portable Hydraulically Powered Axial Flow Submersible Pumping System

They also have a Portable Hydraulically Powered Axial Flow Submersible Pumping System. The Pump Head containing the impeller is hydraulically driven through a short internal shaft directly connected to a hydraulic motor. All sealed to operate trouble free under water and can be flanged to quickly connect to permanent or portable piping systems. A separate Hydraulic Power Unit powered by diesel motor can be skid or trailer mounted allowing for easy portability.  The power units are connected to the pump heads using flexible hydraulic hoses allowing for quick set up and operation. These pumps do not need priming and can run dry without damage to components. This system has proven to be popular with municipalities and others, who may need to quickly set up pump stations without the large infrastructure costs.

Their unique Mobile Pump is a versatile and complete pump station on wheels. They are easily towed and ready to pump very high volumes of water within minutes of reaching a location. They require only one man for installation and operation. Lower the pump by powered winch into the water, unroll the flexible discharge hose and just start the Diesel Engine to begin pumping.

FPI engineering and sales staff is happy to be of assistance with your storm water pumping needs.
