Maximising pumping efficiency

20 March 2008

The New Instaprime Pumps From Multiquip Are Designed For Moving Large quantities of water quickly and efficiently - up to 19000 litres per minute in model sizes ranging from 150 to 300 mm, claims the manufacturer.

Features include a patented screw-type impeller for increased flow and a 570 litre fuel tank for extended continuous run times of up to 100 hours.

Powered by 30 to 72 kW Deutz diesel engines, the pumps can generate lifts of 9 m in 30 seconds and handle solids up to 91 mm. The pump and priming system has drain valves to eliminate the risk of water freezing in the unit and a water lube vacuum pump prevents oil leaks and other unwanted priming discharge.
