Pioneer Pump launches 30 in (450mm) centrifugal, self-priming pump.

After two years of hard work, Pioneer Pump's engineering department has launched its new 30 in (450mm) centrifugal, self-priming pump.

Mounted onto a Caterpillar C27 engine, the new 30 in twin vacuum pump is capable of producing a maximum flow of just under 10,000m³/hr and lifting a maximum suction lift of 5 m. 

Pioneer Pump designs and manufactures vacuum-assisted, self-priming pumps, as well as wet self-priming pumps and end suction, centrifugal pumps. With these pumps, the company is capable of packaging pumpsets up to 575 kW (700 HP) in both engine-driven and electric motor packages.

The company has its own in-house design team that is led by a specialist chief engineer who has designed all Pioneer's fluid ends along a common theme of high efficiency and low cost ownership.
