Over the last year, SureFire has tested several new pump models available to the market. Testing went so well, SureFire is changing its pump lineup going forward. SureFire is moving away from the D70, D115 and D160 to offer PR17, PR30 and PR40 models. These new models are from the same pump manufacturer as the original lineup of D-series pumps that were originally designed in the 1980’s. These new pumps use modern technology advancements in flow dynamics and materials to create a very robust pump that is more efficient and more resistant to harsh liquids than ever before.
The PR17, PR30, and PR40 have several advantages over the original D-series:
- Parts in contact with liquids are molded polypropylene and 316 stainless steel
- New BlueFlex™ diaphragms (see below for more info)
- O-rings and gaskets are Viton
- 316 stainless steel high flow valves
- External fasteners are all stainless steel, including mounting hardware
- Easy access drain plug for winterization
- New Compact Design
- Plumbing Efficiency Maximized to Reduce Inlet Restriction
SureFire is very excited about the New BlueFlex™ diaphragm system. The combination of the new diaphragm material combined with the new patented diaphragm plate allows for heavy duty use and long lasting diaphragms. The New BlueFlex™ material, curved shape and diaphragm thickness have been designed and tested to achieve optimal performance, durability and working life. This new material is the best performing diaphragm material on the market today!
This new lineup of pumps will strengthen the complete line of fertilizer products SureFire already offers. For over 10 years, the SureFire PumpRight has been the building block for our higher rate fertilizer systems. SureFire has sold thousands of the D-series pumps to apply liquid across the globe and feels confident in this new line up of Gen-2 pumps will continue to be a reliable component of our fertilizer systems.
The PumpRight will continue to be driven by an Eaton hydraulic 4.0 cubic inch motor. Mounted to the hydraulic motor is a custom variable rate PWM control block. SureFire’s PWM driven hydraulic motor has a built in by-pass that allows the PumpRight to be used in series with other hydraulic components on the toolbar. There is also a “manual override” that allows us to run the pump with hydraulic oil only, cutting out the need for PWM signal. With less than 9 GPM of hydraulic oil, you can reach the max capacity of the hydraulic pump.
The PumpRight is a reliable pump solution that will last several seasons with proper care and maintenance. It has a tremendous amount of suction which allows us to pull product from several feet away. With over 15’ of vertical lift, pulling from long distances won’t be a problem anymore. All PumpRight hydraulic driven diaphragm pumps are an oil lubricated pump giving the pump the ability to run dry. These positive displacement pumps will deliver a smooth, consistent flow output throughout the entire range of the pump.
