Introducing Our Ecoflo Range
The ECOFLO pump range is a series of 4″ and 6″ self-priming, quiet, and environmentally friendly Stage V engine diesel driven pumps that are suitable for use in almost every end suction centrifugal pump application due to their two interchangeable impellers. They offer 2,000 hours of maintenance free running time due to the high quality diaphragm and valves, and provide excellent solids handling capabilities combined with superb fuel efficiency. They come fitted with stacking brackets so you can place one pump on top of the other when space is a premium requirement. We also supply each pump with a central lifting eye and forklift channels for all lifting requirements.
Unlike most manufacturers who build one pump for one application, our pumps provide the capacity to interchange two impellers within the pump – a 100mm solids handling vortex impeller and a 76mm semi-open impeller for dewatering. Simply open the easy access hinged front canopy doors, and use the sliding top rail to swap the impeller options. These features also allow for quick and efficient servicing and maintenance of the hydraulic wet end, and the mechanical seal, which can be changed on site rather than in the workshop. We use the same hydraulic wet end, shaft, wear plate & liners for both impellers. Simply interchange between impeller options depending on the application requirement. No other company or professional body offers this as a solution.
Diaphragm Vacuum Priming System & Lubricated Mechanical Seals
The ECOFLO series feature an automatic self-priming diaphragm vacuum system that is not only reliable, quiet and efficient, but provides rapid priming and repriming in snore conditions. The system handles both air & liquid mixtures and all pumps are equipped with externally lubricated mechanical seals with hard faces. This is possible due to the oil bath system, which provides constant lubrication to the mechanical seals. This lubrication prevents damage during dry running, allowing the pumps to run completely dry for indefinite periods.
Kohler Stage V Engine
The pumps are fitted with Kohler Stage V engines, which can run on both diesel and HVO Fuel (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil Fuel). This is a biofuel that is a “drop-in alternative,” meaning it is completely compatible with existing fuel logistics and can be blended at high percentages with traditional mineral diesel. Running the pumps on HVO fuel reduces up to 90% of the net CO2 emissions. That means for every 1,000 litres of HVO fuel burned, 195kg GHG of CO2 is produced compared to 3.6 tonnes of CO2 if the same amount of diesel were burned. The other main benefit of using HVO Fuel is that it reduces servicing intervals, which saves time, money and customer downtime.
1000/2000 litre fuel tanks
Fitted with an external double bunded 1000ltr or 2000ltr fuel tank, the carbon footprint of the pumps, along with labour & vehicle refuelling costs are again reduced. The pumps can run for long extended periods, without the need to refuel twice a week as is normally the case with most standard pump options.
Customer Centred Control Panel
We designed the control panel with the customer in mind. We ensured that the pump can be operated manually as well automatically, and that a set of telemetry options are provided. Our standard control panel provides the customer with a basic telemetry option of engine diagnostics (engine start/stop times, engine hours run & engine temperature etc.).
In addition to the basic set-up, we can provide remote monitoring, start & stop engine facility via smart phone or laptop, electronic engine regen options, along with GSN geo fencing for 24/7 security. Spark arrestor & chalwyn valves can also be fitted for zoned petrochemical & industrial applications where standard pumps are not suitable. A homologated highway braked trailer mounted option is also available.
As mentioned, the ECOFLO range are suitable for use in almost every end suction centrifugal pump application. Some applications include construction & civil engineering, mining & mineral extraction, oil & gas, industrial & petrochemical, environment agency & DEFRA, emergency flood relief, salvage & marine, offshore, remediation, landfill, paper mills, site drainage, well point dewatering, stream diversions, pipeline pigging, process water supply, sludge & silt removal, and temporary fire pumps & sewage bypass schemes.
We firmly believe the ECOFLO range of pumps offer a major advancement in technology, with their capacity to vastly reduce carbon footprint, their HVO fuel capability, their reduced servicing and maintenance requirements, and their unique option to interchange two impellers, depending on whether you are dealing with a solids handling or dewatering application.
