Marine engine water pumps for cooling systems
On board any marine vessel or ship there will be a sea water cooling pump installed in the engine room to circulate sea water for the purpose of cooling down the engine, gearbox and generator. As marine engine cooling systems need to be constantly run, seawater cooling pumps need to be robust, heavy wearing centrifugal or side channel pumps able to take the strain of continuous operation. Larger, 4 pole motors running at half speed to reduce wear are usually specified for marine engine cooling pumps.
As the UK agent for marine pump specialist manufacturer Azcue, Castle Pumps offer a large range of marine engine water pumps for cooling systems. As well as general cooling seawater pumps, we also offer a marine engine cooling pump with frequency converter that adjusts the speed that the motor runs based on the water temperature to save money on wasted energy consumption.
