What makes Trident Pumps different?

At TPI, we have utilized our “patented” drive system and pump design to create a revolutionary light weight water pump that can outperform the competition in all aspects of firefighting, flood mitigation, mine dewatering, tailings pond aeration, just to name a few!

 Current high volume water pumps like the one depicted, which weighs 8,000 lbs; utilize diesel engines because they create high torque at low rpm (they can’t spin much higher than 2,000 rpm). Models like this one can output 800 Lb. Ft. of torque at low RPM (2,000), but, these engines are very heavy  and require reinforced skid frames. 

Trident pumps

 Our patented design utilizes a 110 lb. high rpm engine combined with a custom CVT system that converts the engines rpm into high torque (up to 1,313 lb. ft. when the engine spins at 8,000 rpm and impeller is spinning at 2,000 RPM).  Our pump design allows us to push up to 80,000 lbs axially, which is up to 10 times more than other comparable diesel pumps. It is for this reason that we can use our 600 lb pump to push water great distances. Please see the attached graph, depicting how we used our 1,500 gpm impeller to flow over 600 gpm @ 7250 linear feet, up a gradual 24′ incline and on another job, over 500 gpm up a 240′ vertical hill, then 1 mile horizontally. Although we have more testing to do, we have found that for long distance pushes, our 1,000 gpm impeller works best.

Our engine is rated to last up to 15,000 hrs
• Built to handle 600 HP
• 329 ft. lbs. torque @ 8,700 rpm, with a max rpm of 13,200
• Our CVT multiplies the engine torque variably, giving us as much as 1,313 ft. lbs at the impeller

  • De-couples the engine from the pump, giving the system added protection from sudden pressure spikes, water hammer and accidental valve closure, which would destroy most pumps and engines that are directly coupled

Tier 4 Compliance and Trident Pumps

Tier 4 final compliance came into full effect on January 1st 2019 and as a result, Diesel engines become more expensive, with added exhaust regen, particulate filters and DEF, which cuts output power and increases fuel consumption.
Trident pumps utilize gas powered engines; have adjustable AFR, fuel pressure regulators, adjustable turbo waste gates, all of which combine to give you the ability to tune the engine for an optimum Stoichiometric ratio.

A  brief  overview  of  Trident  Pumps.

Thanks to our patented design, Trident Pumps:
• Eliminate the destructive results of Water Hammer  by De-Coupling the pump  from  the  engine, which  also  prevents  engine  failure  from  sudden  exerted  loads
• Have the potential to decrease industry emissions involved with fluid pumping by as much as 75%
• The pump assembly is comprised of Hardened Steel Alloys, then nickel coated and hardened for durability, but can be rebuilt “infield”, which eliminates the need for 3rd party transport to manufacturer, saving the customer time and money
• Weigh 1/25th as much as its current competition
• Consume approximately 5 gph of regular pump gas, as opposed to 25 gph of Diesel for a comparable pump
