SeaQuest 14″ Thru Flo Reel

SeaQuest 14″ Thru Flo Reel fiited to F/V Olgarry May 2010

SeaQuest Water Pump
New to the SeaQuest range is the SeaQuest 12” Submersible Water Pump. Designed using our now famous fish pump technology, the pump was designed with areas affected by heavy flooding in mind.
The pump is a small and compact design, to be used either in a permanent or portable position. Driving the pump is a Radial Piston Hydraulic Motor with more than enough power to meet the requirements of the pump. The inlet is guarded from any large unwanted objects from entering and possibly blocking the system.

Pumping can start at a depth of only 400mm and stops at approx. 50mm. Required to drive the Water Pump is a recommended oil flow of only 80 liters per minute with a pressure of 180 bar.

Exclusive Rights for production
Fluid Controls has been granted the exclusive rights to manufacture and sell under a licencing agreement with Mr. Michael Cavanagh. A machine for the pre-processing of Boarfish prior to being discharged to a fish factory. The manufacture and use of this invention is protected under patents.

This machine greatly enhances the turnaround time of discharging the vessel, and makes the product more viable for the processor and catcher.
