Middle East Split Case Pumps
The pump featured in this short Blog includes a Diesel engine driven split case pump. This medium sized pump produces 2500 GPM @ 135 PSI. Ameriflo has the most efficient and expansive split case product offered in the fire protection market today. The 5030 SC product line has many standard features and benefits that are not offered even as options by the majority of the other players. The Diesel engine version features an Ameriflo AF6-135, 6 cylinder block generating 375 HP at 1760 RPM and has a large 1.500 inch cooling loop.
Ameriflo Diesel engines have features that the other Diesel engine manufactures simply do not offer. The Diesel engine cradle is a unique and specifiable feature by virtually eliminating Diesel engine vibration that was historically transferred to the pump and system piping from the Diesel engine. The Ameriflo Vibration Isolation Cradle (VIC) has integral engine mounts that completely isolate the Diesel engine vibration from being transferred to the pump base assembly. This is a feature that no other Diesel engine manufacturer has as a standard offering. This VIC greatly reduces oscillations found from other Diesel engine manufacturers and allows all Ameriflo pump assemblies to operate vibration free. Other models feature charged air cooled intake and water to oil heat exchangers to maximize Diesel engine performance.
The Ameritouch digital engine controller has no “old school” gauges present. The end user is presented with a fully digital, touch screen interface that is state of the art! All Diesel engine parameters can be monitored from this digital interface making startup and run tests very easy. This is yet another example of how Ameriflo is leveraging technology to be the leader in the fire protection market.
Another very critical area of importance for Ameriflo is the overall look of the Diesel engine when ready to ship to the customer. Other manufactures simply dump paint on the entire engine in a monolithic paint scheme that looks extremely sloppy and very unprofessional. Ameriflo takes considerable time making sure that overspray is not present on the Diesel engine platform. The stainless steel components are allowed to shine and the fuel and oil hoses are clean and paint free. The cooling loop is also clean and free of paint allowing for a more professional Diesel engine package. These small details is what separates Ameriflo from the rest of the field.
As always, thank you for your interest in Ameriflo and we welcome you to The Future of Fire Protection (and Diesel engine leader!!).
