Australian Pump Industries has introduced a new range of trash pumps
designed to operate automatically and unattended.
The new 3″ trash pump, the Aussie QP3TI, (‘I’ for ‘Intelligent’) is
powered by a Honda iGX Series engine that offers both electric and recoil start
Key features of the Aussie QP3TI trash pumps include auto stop/ start
with float control and integrated ECU (Electric Control Unit) with a
self-tuning regulator (STR) governor system; engine’s ability to sense and
adjust the RPM to match the application’s load and speed requirements; automatic
controls complemented by a dashboard with manual dials that can control flow
from low through to medium and high; controls adjusting the discharge volume
with a convenient pilot lamp and alert systems built into the program; automatic
standby operation allowing auto engine on/off, auto engine standby and auto
drain mode; and auto fill mode also integrated in the system.
When the machine is set to ‘auto drain’ operation, the engine starts
automatically and drains the tank or trench. It turns off as soon as the tank
or trench reaches the low level required. The float sensors can be set either
at the suction or discharge point of the pump, allowing maximum flexibility.
Aussie QP3TI trash pumps deliver multiple benefits to hire companies,
contractors and even plumbers and drainers. The pump can run effectively without
the presence of an operator.
The 3″ trash pump delivers a flow of 1500lpm with a maximum head of 30
metres. The suction lift is an astonishing 7.6 metres with fast priming being a
part of the pump’s inherent design.
The new experimental QP3TI offers a big open style non-clog impeller, a
silicon carbide mechanical seal and an easy-to-open front port for pump cleanout.
The machine comes mounted in a full frame as standard with wheels for ease of
Aussie Pump’s Chief Engineer, John Hales says the QP3TI is their first
venture utilising Honda’s iGX technology with additional features that make it
more ‘pump friendly’.
By operating independently, having the ability to adjust flow and head
in a pre-set manner and also benefitting from Honda iGX technology, the pump achieves
fuel efficiency savings of up to 15% over conventional engines, smoother
performance thanks to the ECU’s fine-tuning of the throttle position and
maintenance of precise engine speed, and lower vibration.
