Aussie’s Smart Pump Delivers Productivity Gains

07.03.2013

Australian Pump Industries has developed a range of ‘Smart Pumps’ for safe, fast and efficient handling of liquid fertilisers.

The Aussie Smart Pump is available in 2” and 3” configurations. They offer high flow with capability to move up to 1,100 litres per minute. This extra flow cuts down time for self-propelled sprayers as large on-board tanks can be filled in a matter of minutes.

“The high flow on the Aussie Smart Pump means extra productivity for farmers by cutting sprayer cycle times,” said Fountain. “That, combined with its corrosion resistance, makes these Smart Pumps a natural choice for pumping ag chems,” he said.

The pump’s unique construction material, glass filled polyester, is impervious to corrosion generated by liquid fertiliser. Stainless steel fasteners, EPDM o-rings and check valves are standard equipment. Viton seals are available as an option.

The pump is driven by a genuine Japanese Honda engine backed by a 3 year warranty. The Smart Pump has Aussie’s unique 5 year pump warranty, an indication of the confidence the company has in the product.

While Honda petrol drive Smart Pumps are the most common, the same pumps are also available with diesel, hydraulic or electric drive.

Close coupled electric motor drive versions in either single phase or 3 phase allow simple installation. They’re all fitted with the unique motor protection device called Aussie Protek.

The Protek system is a sandwich device installed between the pump and the electric motor. In the event of a seal failure, the Protek system traps the chemical being pumped, preventing it from running down the shaft into the electric motor.

The hydraulic drive option has big advantages for operators of self-propelled sprayers. The pump can be integrated into the machine and driven by the sprayer’s hydraulic system. The operator can control the pump from the cabin of the vehicle. The couplings from the main base supply tank only have to be “clicked in” to re-load the sprayer tank.

Many operators prefer the hydraulic drive because it does away with the need for electricity out in the paddock or the additional maintenance of a small petrol engine. The hydraulic drive means the pump system is always out of the weather.
