The pump PS150-BOOST provides city water pressure anywhere. The PS150-BOOST has been a standard in home renewable energy system. It is economical for domestic water supply, drip irrigation and water purification.
Use solar-electric power to provide 250 to 10,000 litres per day from shallow water sources. It can push water as high as 140 meters.
PS150-BOOST runs with 12V to 24V systems (1 to 2 solar modules or batteries in series) uses only one and the same motor and controller for solar direct or battery systems. Same flow at 12V or 24V.
The PS150-BOOST is not submersible, but can draw water from shallow wells, springs, cisterns, tanks, ponds, rivers and streams and push it through miles of pipeline. Slow pumping minimizes the size and coste of the solar array-battery system, wire and piping.
The PS150-BOOST is more powerful, quieter and much more durable than plastic RV/Marine pumps. It is less expensive than submersible DC pumps. Wearing parts typically last 5 to 10 years. Overall life expectancy is 15 to 20 years.
Construction & Features
- rotary vane mechanism (positive displacement) made of forged brass, carbon graphite and stainless steel,
- Handless sea water, dissolved minerals,
- survives most freezesl,
- Brushless DC motor (maintenance free) is same for 12V and 24V application with same flow rates,
- MPP tracking, current booster fro solar direct applications, pump speed control, low voltage disconnected for battery protection, terminals for float / remote switch and low water probe,
- Controler includes 12/24V - 7Amps battery charger,
- Installation and service manual is highly detailled and illustrated.
Suction Capacity : 5 m (15 ft) at sea level. Subtract 1m (3 ft) for every 1,000 m (3,300 ft) altitude. Pump should be placed as low and as closed as possible to the water source. Sunction capacity may be further limited by intake pipe friction (or clogged filter). Intake piping should be 1" or larger.
This pump cannot tolerate dirt. Water must be filtered clear. If water is very disty, improve the source or consider a different pump.
PV-Direct (non-battery requirement)
The rated power of the PV array must exceed pump watts by 20% or more
A linear current booster incl MPPT (maximum power point tracking) is already included
Solar tracker (optional) will increase daily yield (40-55% in summer).
Pump may be mounted horizontally or vertically.
Pump must not be submerged.
It may be placed inside a 6" (120 cm) or larger well casing, suspended by a rope.
. (10") uses standard filter cartridges
Installation kit includes: Pressure switch, pressure gauge, check drain and shut-off valves and tank tee.
Float switch for tank shut off if full.
Well probe sensor to protect pump from dry-running.
1 year against defects in materials and workmanship
