Home' Ausmarine : March 2011 Contents Aussie Pumps' popular Seamaster, diesel-powered portable
salvage and fire pump has been granted NATO codification.
The Aussie Seamaster was originally developed for the
Royal Australian Navy as a portable lightweight fire-fighting
and salvage pump. The unique design incorporates a 30
percent glass-filled polyester pump end that primes first time
Perfectly compatible with salt water, the pump's unique
materials enable it to also handle oily waste and diesel fuel.
The standard drive unit is a Yanmar 3.6kW diesel engine with
the whole unit close-coupled and incorporated in a heavy duty
galvanised steel frame with separate gal mounting plate and anti
The specifications called for light weight, with the pump
easily able to be carried by two men. "Seamaster weighs in at
only 43 kilos, making it the lightest weight pump of its capacity
and design in the world!" said Aussie Pump's Operations
Manager John Hales.
The pump is fitted with a high-pressure impeller that
delivers up to 50psi. The pump's internal hydraulic design,
featuring big open water passages, allows it to move up to
43,200 litres per hour making it ideal for salvage work or fire
fighting at sea.
"Our company specialises in fire fighting pumps for land
applications," said Hales. "Pumps for that requirement are
designed to put out fires in the tops of trees and to use minimal
water to maximum effect," he said. "Fire fighting at sea is totally
different where you have loads of water and the idea is to dowse
the fire as quickly as possible."
The Aussie Seamaster is used by navies in Europe, Southeast
Asia and South Pacific island nations as well as the Australian
Navy. The company believes that the NATO codification is a
great compliment to the product and will open up new
markets with navies and commercial vessels around the world.

CHINA MARITIME 2012 which will be held at the Hong Kong
Convention and Exhibition Centre on February 28 and 29

The 2012 edition of the CHINA MARITIME exhibition and
its associated conferences, seminars and meetings will be the
fourth incarnation of the increasingly popular event.
"Our first three exhibitions evinced little interest and support
from Chinese companies which found Hong Kong too complicated
to reach and more expensive than government supported events on
the mainland," explained Kishore Navani the event organiser.
"I'm delighted to note a complete change of heart on the part
of a large number of Chinese companies," Mr Navani said. "With
too many competing shows on the mainland that are
overcrowded with disinterested, unqualified visitors, a number of
more savvy companies have decided to go for quality. That is
where CHINA MARITIME comes in."
All Baird Events focus on quality throughout. Quality venue,
quality displays, quality exhibitors and above all, quality visitors.
"Indeed," Mr Navani explained, "Baird Events are the only ones
in the global maritime industry that supply their exhibitors and
sponsors with a detailed listing of all registered visitors, an
auditable proof of the quality of the crowd.
"Our Chinese friends have been alerted to the unusual value
of this and are making a major effort with their large China
Pavilion in 2012," Mr Navani said.
