QED has created the first self cleaning landfill liquid extraction pump designed to operate in the most extreme landfill conditions. The new AP4 Ultra Xtreme pump utilizes the unique, non-stick coating and polished metal internal components of the AP4 Ultra and Ultra High Temperature pumps with the exclusive AutoPump Xtreme auger. The auger creates a spinning motion to the liquid to help keep particles suspended and moving. This field proven vortex action results in a additional ten-fold improvement in pump "in the ground" times. The combination of AP4 Ultra coating and continuous internal scouring means a reduction of over 70% of time spent cleaning the pump internal components. The AutoPump Xtreme lets you redirect important labor resources to more critical tasks. The new Xtreme is available as the Short, Bottom Loading model of either the standard AutoPump Ultra pump or Ultra High Temperature pump (for temperatures up to 250F / 120C).
