The Hydrolift is a portable, electrically operated device that is used to automate the operation of the Waterra Pump System. This actuator is perfect for purging and sampling 50mm diameter monitoring wells up to 60m deep. In special circumstances it can lift up to 90m. This electrical Tubing Actuator is optimized to operate with the Standard Flow System up to its maximum effective depth and will operate with the High Flow System up to a depth of 45m.
This Tubing Actuator is the ideal choice for the frequent user of the Waterra Pumping System with moderate to extreme pumping requirements (Low, Standard and High Flow). Using the Hydrolift will result in a big boost to your field sampling program.
The Hydrolift is powered by a 3/4 horsepower (560 watts) electric motor and generates a 4 inch (10 cm) stroke at up to 140 cycles per minute. The Hydrolift weighs about 16 kg and requires an electrical power supply of at least 1000 watts. *Please note the Hydrolift requires a generator to power it.
