Introduced in 2017, the Ahrens-Fox® Stainless Steel Centrifugal Pump ushered in a new era of corrosion resistant durability, durability and performance. The only stainless steel pump available in the industry today, the AF-Stainless Steel Centrifugal pump is also the only pump backed with an industry leading 7-year warranty. The stainless steel construction resists damage from brackish water, drafting from lakes, ponds and streams and electrolysis from city water sources - all without the need for anodes.
Now, in 2019, the Ahrens-Fox® Centrifugal Pump range of models has expanded to offer NFPA certified ratings ranging from 1000-GPM to 2250-GPM. The 2250-GPM rating is achieved with only two 6-inch inlets and a 450-HP engine, to allow generator and other parasitic loads during operation. For departments that operate at higher altitudes the AF2000-SS draft is NFPA rated at 2000-GPM, up to 4000-feet, and 1500-GPM all the way up to 10,000-feet!
The power, strength and durability of this unique pump is a result of the use of premium helical cut gearing to achieve maximum power, with quieter operation.
The transmission rating has been finalized at 20,000-feet. The AF2000-SS features the strongest gear case in the industry. It is the perfect complement for apparatus with powerful 500-HP engines
Mechanical seals have also been upgraded to Tungsten Carbide to provide an extremely durable and wear-resistant sealing surface. Tungsten Carbide seals have been proven to be superior to standard Silicon Carbide sealing surfaces in pressure testing from 300-PSI to 2250-GPM.
