New pump from C-Quip
C-Quip has introduced a new electronic bilge and shower pump that incorporate stainless steel sensors in place of a standard electronic float switch.
The pump is marketed under the Aqualine label and is able to sense not only when the water level rises but also whether there is oil or water present in the bilges.
“If there is oil or water in the bilges the pump won’t switch on and discharge the contaminated water,” explained Ian Cooke, C-Quip MD. “It works with sea water and fresh water.”
The pump has an LED on top to tell users when the pump is engaged. In addition, it’s designed to be quiet, self-priming and efficient.
It can also run dry without causing any damage.
The pump incorporates automatic switching from 12 to 24V.
C-Quip has also introduced its Bilge Bug electronic bilge switch, designed to replace an existing float switch.
The switch can be mounted at any angle for easy installation with adaptable screw holes that allow the reuse of existing holes.
An operational LED shows when the switch is actively powering the bilge pump.
The Bilge Bug is IP67 rated and comes with 2m of marine grade cable. It is compatible with most brands of bilge pump.
