QED has created a pump which can operate in the most extreme landfill conditions. The new AP4 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 vortex inducing auger. The auger creates a spinning motion to the incoming liquid to help keep particles suspended and moving. This field proven vortex action has resulted in a additional ten-fold improvement in pump service times. The combination of AP4 Ultra coating and continuous internal scouring means a reduction of over 50% of time spent cleaning the pump internal components. The AutoPump Xtreme lets you redirect important labor resources to more critical tasks. The new AutoPump Ultra Xtreme is available as either a standard Ultra pump or the QED Ultra High Temperature pump (for temperatures up to 250F / 120C).
