The Franklin Electric SubDrive QuickPAK consists of a Pump, Motor, Drive, Pressure tank and Sensor all in one ready-to-go package.
Constant pressure bore pumps are used mainly to supply water to the house and garden directly from the bore.
It uses a pressure sensor which detects water pressure, sending a signal to the controller which adjusts the pump speed.
Instead of the pump turning on and off when the pressure tank reaches a certain pressure, it keeps the pressure tank at one pressure level resulting in an endless steady water flow.
When the demand for water increases (you open a tap), the pump speed increases. When the demand for water decreases (you close a tap), the pump speed slows down. This eliminates the need for large pressure tanks which saves space.
SubDrive also eliminates pressure fluctuations during long running applications such as reticulation/irrigation systems.
The SubDrive controller include diagnostic features and built-in protection for conditions that would be harmful to the system.
This protection includes:
The SubDrive 75 Constant Pressure Bore Pump Systems include:
The SubDrive 150 Constant Pressure Bore Pump Systems include:
The SubDrive 300 Constant Pressure Bore Pump Systems include:
All the SubDrives can operate outside of their recommended operating range for a short period of time.
The SubDrive 75 models have a min flow of 25LPM and a maximum flow of 100 Liters Per Minute. They also have a min head of 55m and max head of 160m.
The SubDive 150 models have a min flow of 25LPM and a maximum flow of 150 Liters Per Minute. They also have a min head of 65m and max head of 300m.
The SubDive 300 models have a min flow of 30LPM and a maximum flow of 270 Liters Per Minute. They also have a min head of 60m and max head of 400m.
