The Axial Flow, or Propeller Pump, moves water in a straight line or with the axis of the pump casting. Liquid is drawn into the suction bell and pushed out the discharge with minimal friction and no change of direction. Axial pumps can be mounted either vertically, horizontally or adapted to discharge at various angles. The advantage of D & D designed Axial Flow Pumps is infinite control, which is not possible when using conventional systems. In addition, the hydraulic motor and piping are incorporated into the suction bell, resulting in an uninterrupted discharge flow. Complete Axial Flow Systems are available with THE RUGGED ONE TM, the heavy duty hydraulic power unit manufactured exclusively by D & D. Available in either trailer or skid mount.
The Axial Flow Pump is the pump of choice when pumping large volumes of "clear" water at maximum heads of 25 feet. Whether your needs are flood control, field irrigation or moving large volumes of water, rely on D & D Axial Flow Pumps for maximum performance.
