Diesel drive vacuum prime

close

Overview

The BA auto prime pumps have been designed with a clear focus on reliability, efficiency and durability. Featuring a 100% mechanical priming system, the BA series pumps quickly prime and re-prime, even from dry conditions. The heavy build style of both pump and canopy make the BA range perfect for use in the strenuous contractor market.

World-class performance
The BA range is built to be deployed on the most demanding dewatering and sewage bypassing applications. Using high efficiency pumps and state-ofthe-art diesel engines, the pumps offer maximum performance at minimal cost, fully in-sync with the company philosophy of “Lowest cost of ownership”.

BBA Pumps: BA Series - Silenced canopy and open frame

BA series solids handling pumps are used for anything from sewer bypass, wellpointing, general transfer and flood response.

This series punch way above their weight - boasting efficiencies that out perform most others on the market - a focus on lowest cost of ownership is what has driven BBA to developing one of the best ranges of portable vacuum prime pumps in the world.

  • Corrosion free doors and frame
  • Vacuum assisted prime
  • 4 year limited warranty!

 

Key points about vacuum assist pumps

  • The mechanical seal is cooled by oil during dry running - the pump does not have to be filled with water during start-up
  • A diaphragm vacuum pump is the best choice for suction - its reliability is high, and will not fail if water makes it past the float seal and into the pump.  There is also no chance of an oil leak, and is cheaper to maintain due to long service life of the diaphragm and valves
  • BBA pumps have two sizes of vacuum pumps:  the MP50 and MP100 - the difference is the air handling capacity (50m3/h and 100 m3/h)
