Poly Pontoon with floats coupled to a 5 Inch Pump Sleeve for a 4 Inch Bore Pump
The floating pontoon/shroud is recommended for bore pump installations in dams, rivers, ponds or any open body of water.
The standard length of the pontoon shroud is 1.5m long. They can be sized to suit your bore pump. Resizing of the shroud will delay shipment by 1 week.
Poly fabricated Pontoon with twin floats coupled by stainless steel wire to a 5″ Pump sleeve/shroud with 2″ BSPF stainless steel outlet flange with cable slot suitable for a 4″ pump motor assembly. Centralisers not included.
The Pontoon/floats and pump sleeve/shroud are sized to suit all models of Subdrive Solar pump and motor combinations. The Pontoon and Pump sleeve are also suitable for use with SubDrive 75, 150 and 300 units. A SS centraliser is recommended for the motor end to not have the motor body touch the sleeve sides. The centraliser for the STD 4″ motor is the SS 120mm centraliser. There is a special centraliser for a 4″ High Thrust motor. An optional stainless steel inlet strainer on the shroud is available.
Shrouds ensure water must travel the length of the motor in to the pump suction to aid in cooling the motor.
A pump shroud is always required in an open body of water eg. a dam or river. This protects the pump and ensures correct velocity of water over motor for cooling purposes. The optional stainless steel inlet strainer protects the pump from damage from falling sand, dirt, leaves, etc that you may find in an open body of water.
