The Calpeda Aquarius tank system is the latest example of the innovative products available from Calpeda Pumps (Ireland).
For over 20 years the company has built up a strong reputation for delivering customised pump solutions to meet the requirements of a wide range of projects and applications.
This ability to create engineering-led solutions is a combination of the full range of pumps available from Calpeda to cater for domestic, commercial, industrial and specialist applications which is complemented by a team of in-house specialists offering design advice and technical support at every stage of the project.
As part of the Italian pump giant, Capleda SPA, Calpeda Pumps (Ireland) Ltd can also boast continuous product development – as reflected in the introduction of the Calpeda Aquarius tank system.
This unique pump and water storage solution was devised by Calpeda Pumps (Ireland) and is manufactured at its premises in Blanchardstown, Dublin 15.
Carrying the prestigious Guaranteed Irish symbol of accreditation, Calpeda Aquarius is designed to meet the demand for a self-contained, integrated pump and water storage solution and is suitable for applications such as houses, apartments, retail, commercial, hospitality, nursing homes, sports clubs and gyms.
Reflecting this versatility, there are multiple tank size options – in capacities ranging from 300lt to 1850lt – and any number of different pump sizes with pressures up to 12 Bar and flow of 183 litres/minute. Tanks can be inter-connected for larger storage capacities.
“Calpeda Aquarius is designed to meet the demand for a self-contained, integrated pump and water storage solution.”
This range of tank sizes and tank shapes means that Calpeda Aquarius is suitable for a wide array of applications in a variety of house types and locations.
The installer has also been considered, with initial installation and future servicing kept simple.
Everything relating to the pump is incorporated into the self-contained special screw-on/off lid. Servicing the pump is also straightforward and, should the need arise to replace it, the lids are interchangeable, so the installer simply needs to extract the old pump and drop in the new unit.
The fact that the Calpeda Aquarius range is manufactured in Dublin means that project-specific solutions can also be created.
Each tank is manufactured from non-toxic, high-density polyethylene and certified for use with drinking water. All the materials used are non-corrodible and are UV, mould, algae and lichen resistant, while every tank is fully pressure tested and certified prior to dispatch.
All Calpeda Aquarius tanks come complete with secure access lid and screened vent, and dry-run protection built in as standard. The pumps use jacketed motor technology to prevent heat transfer to the stored liquid, while pressure control options are possible via the patented Calpeda Idromat and Easymat variable speed controls.
