Solar Pump (SHP)

The SHP is a solar hydraulic pump intended for rural livestock farmers who need to pump to high heads typically (60-200m) from a surface water source. The motor is a brushless DC Smart Drive motor.

We have stopped production of our SHP-diaphragm pump as our new SHP-triplex is far superior. This new product will include blue tooth so you can set the pressure stop and time delay via any smart phone.

The SHP-triplex uses the same basic concept but will be lower cost and more reliable. Theses are the main advantages:

  • It can run faster, 200-1500 rpm – as it is well balanced with 3 pistons
  • Will pump to set pressure (the point where the ball cock start to close) and then stop
  • Pressure stop point and stop time can be set via any smart phone using blue tooth and an online app. Default is 160m for 30 minutes
  • Brushless motor design - no wearing parts in the motor
  • Direct drive - no gearbox to fail and make less efficient
  • Motor speed controller tracks for maximum solar PV power
  • Far more cost effective than the competition
  • The most efficient water pump in this size class
  • Built tough, no gearbox needed
  • Do it yourself - No builder, electrician or water take permit needed
  • Light at <20kg
  • Triplex pumps last longer because each individual component has to do less work. The flow of water from a triplex pump is more constant so no pressure dampener is needed
  • Can pump clean or dirty water as plunger pumps are less prone to damage than piston pumps
  • Is light enough to mount on a pontoon to float on the surface water of storage dams, eliminating the need for high suction lifts

We hope to have this lower cost version on the market by early March 2019. With the cost of solar PV falling to very low levels, solar PV water pumping makes a lot of sense.
