Fire Fighters Go With the Chief


Major public utilities and fire fighting authorities are finding that the Aussie Fire Chief represents a combination of both performance and value for money not available from any other similar product.

The Fire Chief is a purpose built and designed high pressure portable fire fighting pump designed for property protection and spot fire fighting.

The big fire fighting pump produces up to 500 litres per minute flow with a maximum pressure in excess of 100 psi. It is literally hundreds of dollars less than the retail price of its lighter weight competitors, providing users with real cost efficiency.,

Superior performance is achieved by the pump’s huge heavy duty impeller and big belly body. The pump’s hydraulics are superbly matched to the impeller, volute and other components, providing maximum use of the engine’s torque and horsepower. The pump’s inherent design enables more water to travel through the water passages without wasting horsepower. A super heavy duty 1 piece closed style impeller, made from marine grade aluminium, weighs up to 2 ½ times that of competitors and offers big water channels between its side plates. The large water passages enables some solids to pass through the pump rather than clogging the impeller, causing pump failure.

“We refuse to use lightweight plastic impellers or a rivetted type design” said Product Manager, John Whiteley. “It’s more expensive to make a heavy duty one piece impeller, but the user benefits are tremendous” he said.

The Fire Chief features a bolt on suction flange with standard 50 mm ports. The 50 mm ports mean more water can get into the pump for higher flow rates at high pressure. The detachable suction port also means the check valve can be serviced without having to dismantle the entire pump, a feature not found on other major fire pump brands.

The Aussie Fire Chief is available in a wide range of configurations, including a super high pressure twin impeller version, the Aussie Mr T, that provides pressures in excess of 135 psi and huge flows. The pump is now covered by an exclusive 3 year warranty that guarantees consumers trouble free pump operation.

Further information including a free property protection guide is available from Australian Pump Industries and Aussie Pump Distributors throughout Australia.
