Australian Pump Industries  has developed a range of poly pumps designed for safe, fast and efficient pumping of liquid fertilisers.
During periods of drought, farmers have to employ better production methods to bring the soil to life including using liquid fertilisers instead of granular fertilisers to produce crops off minimal rainfall. Liquid fertilisers have been found to be up to ten times more effective than common granular fertilisers, greatly improving yields. However, liquid fertilisers are also corrosive and need to be handled with the right equipment.
Aussie Pumps’ Dean Fountain explains that they have developed a new pump that is resistant to corrosion, and has the right elastomers to prevent leaks or negative chemical reactions to liquid fertilisers.
Specifically developed for ag-chem applications such as liquid fertilisers, the Aussie poly pumps range includes 2” and 3” self priming centrifugal engine drive pumps, and offer advantages such as cost effectiveness, efficiency and reliability.
Key features of Aussie poly pumps: 

  • Made from a polycarbon material developed in the USA
  • Virtually corrosion-free pump ends
  • Viton or EPDM elastomers chemically compatible with most liquid fertilisers
  • All models feature stainless steel hardware
  • 2” pump handles up to 720 LPM and 3” version delivers up to 1000 LPM
  • Both models available in petrol, electric or diesel drive
  • Trash pumps covered by a free extended five-year pump end warranty
  • Close coupled electric motor drive versions in single phase or three phase allow simple installation
  • Protek device fitted between pump and electric motor traps the liquid in the event of a seal failure, preventing leakage into the electric motor
  • Electric drive poly pumps also come with a tough galvanised base for simple installation
Fountain adds that spray contractors wanting to fast refill can do so with these handy and reliable pumps. A hydraulic drive version is also available that can be plugged into the sprayer’s hydraulic system for fast fill ‘on the go’.
Aussie Pumps also offers genuine Honda powered pumps with a three-year Honda engine warranty. The extra one-year warranty on Honda engines fitted to these pumps is absolutely free.
