They also include a fully filtered vacuum prime system that ensures zero discharge and are fitted with biodegradable oils.
The Enviropump features a green acoustic cabinet and is capable of keeping noise levels down to 65 Dba at 7m. With a fuel tank capacity of 175 liters, the units weigh 1,990 kg fully fueled and offers fuel consumption of 4.10 liters per hour on full load at 1,500 rpm. They are suited for water companies and government agencies that have robust environmental policies and are interested in reducing their carbon footprints.
