Apollo-AC Electric: Reliability, convenience, lower cost

Grid power for small-draw applications

GLEN ELLYN, IL – Blackhawk Technology Company, the industry's pumping-innovation leader for more than 25 years, introduces a new line of low-profile electric piston pumps for applications not requiring the performance metrics of Blackhawk’s popular Anchor Electric models

The Apollo-AC Electric Piston Pump™ is designed in response to customers’ desire for a grid-power version of the highly regarded Apollo Solar Piston Pump™ and its simple, linear-rod driver.

In addition to lower prices and lower amp draws, the Apollo-AC combines the convenience and constancy of 24/7 grid power with the reliability, low maintenance and easy installation that define Apollo pumps. Model 101 operates to depths of 230 ft (70 m) with flows to 1.4 US gpm (5.3 lpm). Model 102 offers flows to 3.5 US gpm (13.5 lpm) at depths to 100 ft (30.5 m).

As with other Blackhawk top-head-drive piston pumps, all power and driver mechanical components are cleanly and safely above the wellhead. There is no high-pressure air or electricity introduced below surface grade. The pumps, which are not affected by changes in differential pressure either in the bore or on the surface, are environmentally friendly and do not emit greenhouse gases.

The Apollo-AC Electric employs a 3/8-hp, DC motor operating from converted AC grid electricity. The unit can be installed at any angle to horizontal and pumps virtually anything flowable.

Blackhawk Technology Company is the originator and the No. 1 manufacturer of above-wellhead, positive-displacement piston pumps – leading-edge technology refined by 25 years of customer-driven improvements. Blackhawk continues to introduce innovative products to the industry’s most comprehensive line of electric, pneumatic and solar piston pumps and pump supplies, all designed to withstand the harshest weather and downhole pumping environments.

Founded in 1990, the company originated landfill and groundwater remediation piston pumps now covered by several patents and marks, with others pending. No company offers more real-world piston-pumping experience in tough landfills, chemical facilities, hydrocarbon production and remediation sites throughout North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia.
