VAKI Heathro Fish Pumps

High Capacity, Efficient and Easy to Move

To protect your investment during handling operations, you need a safe, gentle, fast way to transfer fish.
From an economic standpoint, VAKI Fish Pumps are capable of reducing operating costs and dramatically improving efficiency.
VAKI Fish Pumps are precision manufactured from the highest-quality materials and are available in two sizes; the VAKI
6” Fish Pump and the VAKI 8” Fish Pump. For many years, Aquaculturists around the world have utilized the robust, proven performance
of VAKI Fish Pumps to move salmon, trout, char, tilapia, hybrid striped bass, mackerel, anchovy, yellow-tail, shrimp, and many other species.

• Precision control
• Easy to set-up and move around site
• Reduced labor costs and eliminating the need to lift heavy nets and buckets

RUGGED INDUSTRIAL PRIMING PUMP

The 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 tires means it is very easy for one person to move the pump around between tanks or cages and over rough and uneven surfaces.

 

EASY TO CHANGE FITTINGS

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

THE IMPELLER

VAKI Fish Pumps have a unique impeller design that allows fish and shrimp to pass through safely and efficiently. 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 VAKI Fish Pumps, the Remote Control puts complete control of the 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, impeller motor on & off, and control the rotational speed of the impeller.

THE PRIMING SYSTEM

The self-priming system means that moving fish becomes a simple one person 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.

Testimonials

We use our pumps almost daily. At the moment we have 2 pumps one at each facility. The Heathro Pump is gentle on fish and is easily controlled with its remote control, which makes it possible for only one person to operate sorting and moving of fish. We are very pleased with our choice of pumps that are perfect fit for our needs and production.
