Choosing the right pump

Choosing the right pump for an effluent system is the key to ensuring a system works well and gives many years of reliable service.

Rotorua-based Numedic’s latest addition to its extensive pump range is the HS series – a shore mounted, self-priming range of pumps, with the ability to handle raw effluent and solids up to 35mm in diameter.

The HS pumps can deliver up to 8m lift on the suction side, while offering high pressure and flow rate performance, with the advantages of being a single stage, centrifugal pump with very low maintenance costs. The pumps are suitable for motor capacities ranging from 7.5kW to 18.5kW.

“HS series pumps are proving to be very popular, both for new shore mounted installations, and to replace existing pumps,” says director Marina Millar. “This is especially so in situations where there is no solids separation taking place, and farmers need a pump that can handle solids, alongside increased performance and extended durability. Our feedback is that farmers get more than expected in terms of performance with these pumps, and they can pump further afield without worrying too much about solid separation.”
