Australian Pump Industry launched new range of dry prime dewatering pumps at the huge 2014 CivEnex show to represent a breakthrough into a new dimension for the iconic Australian designer and manufacturer.

The initial range included three inch, four inch and six inch dewatering pumps. Aussie Pumps’ set out to create a new standard for the market in terms of dry prime design, efficiency levels and value for money.

According to Aussie Pumps’ Chief Engineer, John Hales they have an unparalleled reputation for quality, self-priming trash pumps that can handle virtually any solid laden liquids and those wet prime pumps are all designed around a simple ‘bullet proof’ concept that’s cost effective but robust.

The company is setting out to do the same in the dry prime pump market. The new product range simplifies the over complex design of other manufacturers, making maintenance easier and the pumps less expensive.

Engineered to meet the requirements of professional contractors, miners, local government and quarry operators, Aussie Auto-Prime pumps include with a few extras that other manufacturers class as options.

Flow efficiencies are exceptional with the big six inch pump, the new AP150, boasting flows to 7,200 litres per minute. The four inch version achieves a maximum head of 40 metres (that’s vertical lift). All models feature excellent self-priming characteristics with the ability to lift water up to 8.5 metres.

The compressor design chosen utilises a jet of compressed air that passes through the Venturi type nozzle to evacuate air from the pump casing and suction line. That makes for fast, positive and continuous priming even when the pump is operating in snore mode.

The company chose to power the products with Perkins water cooled diesel engines because of their reliability, ease of service and international spares availability. The engine is fitted with an electric auto-start and comes standard with shut down protection.
