Overview

The Pentair VAKI Fish pump is capable of moving large amounts of stock in a very safe and gentle manner. With Pentair VAKI Fish Pumps, the fish remain in water during the entire process. The pump’s integrated precision control panel allows commercial aquaculture operators to make accurate adjustments of pump speed, flow rate and priming modes. The Pentair VAKI Fish pump is mounted on a robust stainless steel cart which makes it very easy to set-up and move. Pentair VAKI Fish Pumps can help reduce labor costs and increase safety on the farm by eliminating the need to lift heavy nets and buckets. With many references around the world, the Pentair VAKI Fish Pump is a dependable piece of commercial-grade equipment that vastly simplifies many important farm operations.

To protect your investment during handling operations, you need a safe, gentle, fast way to transfer fish. The Pentair VAKI Fish Pump is unquestionably the most versatile fish pump for fish up to 1.2kg on the market and it is fast becoming the industry standard system for moving fish gently.

Features

Rugged industrial priming pump

The Pentair VAKI Fish Pump is self-priming and is equipped with a rugged industrial priming pump.
 

Easy to move

The balanced ‘wheelbarrow’ design of the pump and large pneumatic tyres means it is very easy for one person to move the pump around between tanks or cages and even over rough and uneven surfaces.
Fish can be transferred over long, horizontal distances.

 

Easy to change fittings

The Pentair VAKI Fish Pump can easily be changed to accept different camlock sizes and fittings on both the inlet and outlet.

 

The priming system

The self-priming system means that moving fish becomes a simple one man operation. Simply wheel the pump to your desired position, put the inlet hose into the tank or cage, prime and start pumping. All pumps feature fully variable drive systems, meaning fine control over pump speeds can be achieved. The powerful priming pump means that a 6” or 8“ line can very quickly be primed from up to 3m below the pump. Restoring prime, if it is lost, is also very straight forward – just turn the prime pump back on. The pump can be used with any combination of different camlock sizes. Larger diameter output lines can also be used.

 

The impeller

The Pentair VAKI pumps are impeller pumps. The key to the high performance and gentle fish handling of this pump is in the impeller itself, which is cast, balanced and hand polished.

Remote control

Available as an option on all electrically powered Pentair VAKI Fish Pumps, the Remote Control puts complete control of your fish pump where it’s most needed, with the operator. The wireless transmitter has a long range and is weatherproof and ergonomic. Its functions allow the operator to turn the prime pump on & off, impellor motor on & off, and control the rotational speed of the impellor.
