Pumps for fish
Good circulation is decisive for profitable aquaculture
Fish farming has become an important factor in the food industry. Water is a natural part of the fishery production and therefore our core competence – conveyance of water – is in demand in this area.
Operating costs in the production may quickly become high and unnecessary. This affects the bottom line and does not create value. As all propeller pumps from Lykkegaard A/S are customised, these costs are minimised and therefore the cost is not only a reflection of the quality of the product but also a guarantee for low operating costs.
We are specialists in the manufacture of corrosion-resistant propeller pumps. Therefore, our solutions can be installed in water with 0.5 – 40‰ salinity and water temperatures up to 30° Celsius. Lykkegaard propeller pumps ensure the best circulation in sea and land-based installations, which also contributes to the fish thriving during the entire production process. Our pumps are manufactured in HDPE (High Density Polyethylene) with propellers, hubs and shafts in Duplex steel.
Recirculating aquaculture systems (RAS systems)
Customised recirculating systems are in demand to a greater extent. We are experts on this and therefore we are often used as both consultant and supplier to national and international projects.
The advantages of Lykkegaard propeller pumps for RAS systems are that our solutions can deliver high productivity, operational reliability, a long service life and a minimum of energy consumption. These are some of the most essential arguments when you use sustainability and energy equations in your business models.
Fish farms at sea and in ponds
Our pump technology is recognised in the field of fish farming. Our product development and ideas as to technology are based on the idea that everything we do should be simple and easy to handle. The less complex our design of a pump solution is the more certainty our customers will have that the pump can always supply or remove the quantity of water needed in the fishery production at the lowest cost.
