Kub­ota trash pump leads way

The Australian Mining Review - - INDUSTRY SPOTLIGHT -

AUS­TRALIAN Pump In­dus­tries (Aussie Pumps) has in­tro­duced a new, ro­bust six-inch trash pump.

The heavy duty trash pump, pow­ered by Kub­ota’s 24.8 horse­power (hp) wa­ter cooled, three cylin­der diesel en­gine has the abil­ity to pro­duce up to 4200 litres per minute.

Apart from its high flow ca­pa­bil­ity, the big ad­van­tage of the Aussie QP60TD/ D1105 is its sim­plic­ity in de­sign.

Wet prime trash pumps are rel­a­tively in­ex­pen­sive and have less op­er­at­ing costs com­pared to dry prime pumps.

“Wet prim­ing trash pumps al­low porta­bil­ity and in­de­pen­dency from a des­ig­nated power source and the abil­ity to be placed right at the wa­ter’s edge,” Aussie Pumps prod­uct man­ager Brad Far­ru­gia said.

The best con­di­tions for wet prim­ing pumps where the suc­tion lift is less than 8 me­tres ver­ti­cally are open pit and sump­ing ap­pli­ca­tions.

The Aussie QP60TD/D1105 can also be used for by­pass pump­ing when there is suf­fi­cient re­ten­tion time to al­low for the pump to prime.

With fea­tures such as its big non-clog style im­pellers, man­u­fac­tured from high SG cast iron, dirty wa­ter pump­ing and pump­ing solids in sus­pen­sion is not an is­sue.

The hy­draulic de­sign of the im­peller and vo­lute ob­tains the best re­sult in flow pres­sure, while the pump passes solids up to 40mm in di­am­e­ter.

The pump’s six inch in­let and out­let ports al­lows for easy adap­tion of cam­lock or bauer style fit­tings, while its cleanout port is eas­ily ac­cessed by re­leas­ing four tog­gle style hinged levers.

The pump’s face plate can hinge open, mak­ing it easy for op­er­a­tors to clean out the bowl or ser­vice the im­peller with­out dis­man­tling the body or pipework.

Left over sed­i­ment can be flushed out eas­ily with a read­ily ac­ces­si­ble sep­a­rate drainage port.

For long, trou­ble free op­er­a­tion, even in trash laden or muddy liq­uid ap­pli­ca­tions, an oil bath me­chan­i­cal seal is pro­vided made of tung­sten car­bide.

The en­gine pow­er­ing the pump set is a three cylin­der Kub­ota D1105 and has a num­ber of fea­tures in­clud­ing low oil, high tem­per­a­ture shut­down, plus an emer­gency stop but­ton.

Aussie Pumps of­fers a free ex­tended five-year war­ranty on all its range of poly pumps.

“This is a tes­ta­ment to the prod­uct and be­ing pow­ered by a high-qual­ity Kub­ota pow­ered diesel en­gine en­sures the cus­tomer has com­plete piece of mind,” Mr Far­ru­gia said.

The Aussie QP60TD/D1105 is mounted on a sturdy skid steel base, has a 60 litre long range fuel tank in­cor­po­rated into the skid.

The long range fuel tank al­lows the unit to run up to 10 hours when run­ning at max­i­mum speed.

An in­te­grated cen­tre mounted lift­ing bar is also sup­plied.

The unit’s com­pact de­sign, in spite of its high per­for­mance char­ac­ter­is­tics, al­lows the unit to be eas­ily trailer mounted or trans­ported by util­ity ve­hi­cle when nec­es­sary.

More in­for­ma­tion can be found at Aussie Pumps or autho­rised dis­trib­u­tors through­out Aus­tralia.

Ideal for site de­wa­ter­ing in mines and quar­ries, Aussie’s new Kub­ota pow­ered six inch trash pump can be mounted on a trailer or trans­ported by util­ity ve­hi­cle.
