Pumpsets Ltd 4" cast iron heavy duty Osprey 452 model multi-purpose self priming pump. This pump is designed for use on a wide range of applications that require a solids handling self priming pump. The robust construction of mono bloc design includes mechanical seal and renewable wear plates and is completely serviceable providing reliable and consistent pumping when used in harsh conditions. The pump in this photo is one of a number of sets supplied for a project with each unit mounted on an individual steel base plate. Other mounting options include a site or road trailer with many accessories available including quick release couplings, strainer and suction and delivery hoses.The air cooled two cylinder engine has electric start and throttle control to allow the engine to drive the pump to deliver an output at heads of up to 4.0 bar (at low flow ) and a maximum flow rate of up to 2500 litres per minute (at low head).
Pumpsets Ltd designed and built two self priming high flow, low head, low shear pumps with priming tanks for a shrimp farming application with all wetted parts constructed from 316 stainless steel. This method of pump priming enables higher efficiency pumps to be used which can be located above the water source removing the need for infrastructure to support and maintain alternative pumps types that require platforms or floating pontoons in order for their pump bowls to be submerged.
