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 will be far superior.
It uses the same basic concept but will be lower cost and more reliable. This has the advantage that it can run faster, 100-1500 rpm – as it is well balanced, the only disadvantage is that the water must be clean. We hope to have this lower cost version on the market by early summer 2019. With the cost of solar PV falling to very low levels, solar PV water pumping makes a lot of sense.
