With that 400 horsepower John Deere engine humming and 140 gallons per minute at 4000 PSI of hydraulic fluid spinning the vane motor and mixed flow impeller at the heart of the S30M, the water was moving and delivered almost exactly the kind of output we expected. We worked our way up and down the hydraulics input profiles at several head pressure points. Based on the readings, we developed the max curve seen here. Also on site was an independent Professional Engineer who is in the process of certifying our curves for the S30M. Squeezing every ounce of horsepower out of the engine we were moving more than 25,000 gallons per minute of water at nearly 30 feet of head. When pushed to the max, we almost reached 70 feet of head. Check out our curve below.
So where do you put a big boy like this to work for you? Low to medium head applications like flood control, levee work, dam construction are just a few of the potential applications. Our Axial Flow pump line now offers our customers a 6″, 8″, 12″, 18″, 24″ and 30″ pump depending on your needs. Can one of Hydra-Tech’s axial flow pumps move some water for your company?
