The types of pumps we sell

lb800 submersible pump

Pump Types 

Submersible water pumps: these water pumps are designed to be used fully submerged under water.  They are simple to use and reliable in operation because only a discharge pipe is required and priming is unnecessary. All our submersible pumps are electric, with perfectly sealed motors close coupled to the pumping chamber to ensure safe operation when pumping fluids to the surface. Our range of submersible pumps covers all these common voltages and currents: 12V, 24V, 110V, 230V and 400V, alternating current (AC), for use in domestic and industrial applications, and direct current (DC) for use with batteries. AC motors operate with a mains frequency of 50Hz. Alternative voltages and frequencies are available (price on application).

 

surface pumpSurface water pumps: these water pumps are designed to be used out of water. All pumps in this category are electric and, with the exception of model BCP20 condensate pump, they have motors rated from IP44 to IP55 to indicate the level of protection from material and liquids. They require inlet and outlet pipe and require priming initially. Our range of surface pumps covers all these common voltages and currents: 12V, 24V, 110V, 230V and 400V, alternating current (AC), for use in domestic and industrial applications, and direct current (DC) for use with batteries. AC motors operate with a mains frequency of 50Hz. Alternative voltages and frequencies are available (price on application).

Engine water pumps: these water pumps are designed to be used out of water and must not be used inside buildings or partially enclosed areas. Powered by petrol or diesel, pump end options are either centrifugal or diaphragm. Both types of engine pumps require inlet and outlet pipe, however, a centrifugal requires priming initially to self-prime and should not run without water. A diaphragm pump does not need priming and it can run dry.

Hand water pumps: these pumps are designed to be used out of a liquid. Combining human power and mechanical advantage to move liquids, the range offered has inlet and outlets designs that are fixed or flexible. The range of hand pumps covers applications that are portable, temporary or permanent.

Diesel transfer pumps: a range of pumps and accessories for the pumping of red, white and bio diesel only. The diesel transfer surface pumps are designed for use out of the diesel liquid, require inlet and outlet pipe, and have a by-pass valve to enable operation with a trigger nozzle. The diesel transfer submersibles are designed to be fully submerged. Our range covers all these common voltages and currents: 12V, 24V, 110V, 230V and 400V, alternating current (AC), for use in domestic and industrial applications, and direct current (DC) for use with batteries. AC motors operate with a mains frequency of 50Hz.

Oil transfer pump: a pump that is designed to pump oils and lubricants, for surface use only. Available with these common voltages and currents: 110V, 230V and 400V, alternating current (AC), for use in domestic and industrial applications. AC motors operate with a mains frequency of 50Hz.

Pressure washers: our pressure washers are designed for superb cleaning results in domestic, trade and industrial applications. The Taskman engine driven sets have Interpump pump ends,with Honda petrol and Yanmar diesel engines. Options include frame or trolley mounted, solid or pneumatic tyres and gearbox or direct drive. The Marina pressure washers are designed for domestic and trade applications. The trolley design has on board storage for the power cable, pressure hose and the lance. Standard features include on/off power switch, inlet filter and a detergent bottle.
