Step 3 - Choose Your Pump

Hydraulically driven HYPRO 1 ½” stainless steel pump – provides a massive flow of 416L/min (302L/min for poly version) giving ample agitation. The stainless steel pumps are fitted as standard with a Lifeguard silicone carbide seal which provides maximum protection against abrasive and aggressive solutions. The pumps come with a low pressure alarm kit as standard, guarding against running the pumps dry. Also available in polypropylene pump configuration.

Hypro stainless steel pump kit (complete with fittings and cab-mounted low pressure alarm) = $2,650.00 + GST
Hypro poly pump kit (complete with fittings and cab-mounted low pressure alarm) = $1,765.00 + GST

TIP: Hypro pumps are chosen for their excellent agitation capabilities. Any good liquid injection system needs a large amount of agitation to ensure that your product stays mixed properly. Centrifugal pumps also have a lot smoother flow output than diaphragm pumps which will always tend to ‘pulse’ the liquid through the lines to some degree. This is a big advantage if you decide to use a rate controller as you will get a more accurate reading from your Flowmeter, - especially at lower flow rates which are very common in liquid fertilizer applications.
