New Markets for High Pressure Pumps – Aquaculture

7th Jul 2016

A Calder-manufactured high pressure water jetting unit specifically designed for the aquaculture industry is despatched to the Scottish Highlands. This innovative pump unit will operate in conjunction with a range of cage and net cleaning equipment to provide a reliable and efficient solution to marine fouling.

The rugged and remote coastline of the Highlands and Islands provides excellent natural environments for the growing aquaculture sector. However, this remoteness brings with it added time and cost implications for machinery maintenance which is one of the reasons Calder was selected to design and build this pump unit. Although innovative in design to meet the specific industry and application requirements, this unit is based on the tried, tested, and trusted MultiJet range which has been developed over three decades. At the heart of the MultiJet is a Hammelmann vertical reciprocating plunger pump which offers unrivalled reliability and operational time between scheduled maintenance.

Through sound principles of design, careful component selection, and the latest electronic control and monitoring capabilities, this pump unit should give many years of reliable service in some of the most inhospitable offshore environments in the United Kingdom.
