Mussel complete with Foot valve & top connection
Mussel complete with Foot valve & top connection is a patented device to practically eliminate the problems that often occur when a foot valve is used in shallow dams, creeks or, in construction sites for removing water from excavated areas. When “The Mussel” is correctly sized for the pump flow it will enable you to pump water that would otherwise be impossible to source.
No – Air! Due to no vortex being formed, the mussel allows water to be pumped to very low levels in dams, creeks, wells etc.
No – Mud! Due to low velocity, mud is not sucked into the system if installed properly and therefore build of mud in the impellers, pipes, fittings and sprinklers is reduced dramatically.
No – Sand! Due to low velocity, sand is not sucked into the system to cause blockages in the pump, filters, pipes and sprinklers. Foot valves and check valves are more likely to seat properly and not leak.
No – Stones! Due to low velocity, stones will not be sucked into the system causing problems with foot valves, check valves, pump propellers, pipes, filters and sprinklers.
Larger sizes are available please contact us for more information
No – Weed! Due to low velocity and protected inlet, the amount of weeds sucked into the system will be minimal, helping with filtration problems, foot valve problems and pump impel problems.
Improve Pump Efficiency
The specifications of the Mussel are carefully designed to optimise fluid flow dynamics into and inside the device. The area of the inlet gap, the angle of the diffusion shells and volume of the expansion envelope are all designed to work together to crate better suction and pump efficiencies.
