Pumps & Impellers


Aidan, Some months ago Pilotage & Hydrographic Services Branch within Maritime Safety Queensland purchased some Ancor Impellers from your company for use in the generator units on 4 of the Pilot vessels being operated by the state.

We had previously been using OEM supplied impellers and were having trouble getting more than 150 hours of service before they suffered significant degradation. It had reached the point that we needed to revisit the market to ascertain what was available in an effort to increase the service life of this component.

The Ancor impellers were installed on three of the vessels and the operators instructed to monitor their condition and run to failure.

To date, we have replaced one impeller at 1090 hours, the other two vessels still have the Ancor impellers in place at + 600 hrs.

All in all we are very pleased with the product, We have effectively quadrupled the service life of the component and halved our costs.

Based on this testing and into the future we would be looking to replace all of the fleets impellers with Ancor brand product.

Thanks again

Hi fellows I write to congradulate you that our last purchase off
impellers which have just been changed after lasting for over six months
running some 100 hours per week. that is in excess of 700 running
hours. The manufacturers original would not exceed half of that if
indeed they got that far. keep up the good work and any owner not using
your product lines should get on board sooner rather than later
particularly, if they like me prefer to keep their hand out off their
back pocket.
