Bathurst Aquatic Centre
State-of-the-art aquatic centre to use Masterflow pumps
One of the most sophisticated aquatic centres in NSW, currently being built in Bathurst has had pumps supplied by Masterflow.
This highly sophisticated $12.5million four-pool complex, featuring an 8-lane outdoor Olympic-sized pool, an indoor 8-lane?25-metre?pool, an indoor program pool and a?children's?play pool is due to be opened in September this year.
In addition to the standard end-suction DIN 24255 Baker Pumps supplied for the primary heating water, we also provided a?cost-effective?solution for the spa and pool heating circuits.
For these?circuits?we offered the Southern Cross DPV range of multi-stage in-line pumps.
These are ideal for a plant room as the in-line configuration is extremely compact; the small footprint allows for more floorspace.
All wetted rotating components are stainless steel with a tungsten carbide hard faced mechanical seal. They are?rated to 25 Bar and come complete with companion flanges with BSP female-threaded connections.
Another major benefit of these pumps is their simplicity and economy for repairs.
This is brought about by the reduced axial thrust achieved by the application of in-built thrust bearings being located in the pump rather than in the motor.
This feature allows a standard metric frame motor to be used, thereby creating a simple, more economical means of motor replacement - a distinct advantage over other multi-stage pumps which have their own unique motors fitted.
- The pumps were supplied on top hat section bases with RIS mounts supplied loose.
- For the 25-metre pool the DPV -10-2 (2.19 litres/sec @ 180mps) was chosen.
- For the 50-metre pool, we selected the DPV 18-2 (5.06 litres/sec @ 150kpa) while the spa pump was the DPU4-26T (0.97 litres/sec @ 150kpa).
- A fourth pump (not pictured) is the leisure pool heating pump which was the DPU 18-1 (4.34 litres/head @105kpa).
