Add to cart
The PM-45A is an electronically controlled, automatic pressure boosting pump that produces an outlet pressure similar to that obtained from the water main. It is surface (dry) mount.
A typical application would be to connect it externally to a rainwater storage tank. A pipe connection to the pump's inlet would be made from the tank's outlet connection point or valve / tap at the base of the tank. Pipe from the pump's outlet could be connected to an irrigation system or to a stand pipe and tap. The pump would be connected to mains power (230Vac). When the stand-pipe tap is opened the pump will automatically start giving a maximum flow of 45 litres per minute or a maximum pressure of 4 bar. When the stand-pipe tap is closed the pump will automatically switch off in 6 to 8 seconds. It also has a dry run protection feature, which switches the pump off if no water is available from the storage tank.
The pump could be fitted as a permanent installation or can be used portably for connection to a tank only when required.
