Precision, efficiency, and customisation to large-scale irrigation projects

In the world of large-scale agriculture, water management is not just a task—it’s an art. Efficient irrigation is crucial for sustainability, productivity, and the very success of Australian farming operations. Calpeda Pumps Australia understands this intricately, which is why our MXV pumps and I-MAT systems are designed not just to move water, but to bring precision, efficiency, and customisation to large-scale irrigation projects.

The Challenge of Scale:

Large-scale irrigation projects face unique challenges: diverse crop requirements, vast areas needing coverage, and the need for precise water application to avoid wastage and ensure growth. The key to tackling these challenges lies in a bespoke approach to irrigation solutions, where every aspect of the system is tailored to meet the specific needs of the operation.

MXV Pumps – The Heart of Your Irrigation System:

At the core of these effective irrigation systems are the pumps. Calpeda’s MXV series multistage pumps offer unparalleled efficiency and reliability, making them the ideal choice for large-scale applications. Here’s why:

  • High Efficiency: Engineered for maximum hydraulic performance, MXV pumps reduce energy consumption, a critical factor in large operations.

  • Multistage Design: This allows for higher pressure and flow rates, essential for distributing water across extensive agricultural landscapes. The large range of flow and pressure of MXV pumps offers suitable selection for a variety of projects with different scales.

  • Durability: Built to last, MXV pumps withstand the rigors of continuous operation, ensuring your irrigation system runs smoothly season after season.

The Calpeda MXV series exemplifies durability and performance in water pump technology. Constructed from stainless steel, these vertical multi-stage in-line pumps are designed to withstand corrosive environments, ensuring longevity and reliability. The pumps feature corrosion-resistant bearing sleeves, which are lubricated by the pumped liquid, enhancing the operational life of the unit.

Additionally, the hard face mechanical seal provides superior sealing capabilities, which minimises maintenance needs and protects the pump from potential failures. The robust design of the MXV series, coupled with these features, make it a dependable choice for various applications, truly embodying the Calpeda promise of “built to last”.
