Three Metre Wide Turret
The Problem: Water Intake too High
Pump intake is too high, causing vortexing, which enables air bubbles to enter the pump. This can cause pump cavitation and damage.
The Problem: Water Intake too Low
The pump intake is too low, causing tailings or silt to be ingested into the system (pump damage, blown seals).
The Solution: Turret Sits on Surface
Turret floats on top of the water and draws water from under the surface. Stops vortexing and minimizes ingestion of tailings or silt.

The three metre wide turret is an effective solution when you need to handle very large bodies of water and achieve over 277 L/s (1,000 m3/hr). This product is widely used in mining to dewater tailings and fresh water sources. See the following specifications associated with the three metre wide turret:
