The Blackhawk Technology Company has launched its Apollo-AC HD Electric piston pump, a grid-powered AC electric pump that combines heavy-duty, low-flow endurance with linear-rod simplicity.
Designed for deep-well sites, the Apollo-AC HD pumps flowable products regardless of their chemical composition or viscosity to depths of 600 ft (183 m) or flows to 3.0 gpm (11.4 lpm), depending upon the model. Applications include landfill leachate, gas-well dewatering, low-flow remediation, condensate, biofuel and pipeline drip-leg sump.
All pumps in the Apollo-AC series offer 24/7 grid power with lower amp draws than comparable electric models. The Scotch-yoke linear-rod driver works with positive-displacement piston-rod micro technology to allow pumping to well or sump bottom and dry-running without harm, regardless of vacuum.
Drive actuators and power are mounted above the well or sump for simple installation and cleaner, safer, less-frequent servicing. The Apollo-AC HD series pumps to 200°F (93°C), or higher with special component, and can be customised to sit requirements. Apollo drivers also are available for solar pumping.
