A Hale Impeller AP is a type of impeller used in Hale brand firefighting pumps. These pumps are known for their reliability and durability, making them a popular choice for fire departments around the world.
Here are some key things to know about Hale Impeller APs:
- Types: There are two main types of Hale Impeller APs: AP and APS. The AP series is designed for lower flows (up to 500 gallons per minute) and pressures (up to 350 PSI), while the APS series is designed for higher flows (up to 700 gallons per minute) and pressures (up to 500 PSI).
- Design: Hale Impeller APs are made of hard, fine-grain bronze for corrosion resistance and are hand-ground and balanced for maximum performance. They feature a mixed-flow design, which combines centrifugal and axial flow characteristics, resulting in efficient pumping at both high and low flows.
