MFV “Atlantic Quest”

Overhaul of existing Vacuum pump system.

Original system was, unable to pump efficiently. We replaced the complete pump with a new Samson V15, converted the hydraulic controls to pneumatic. 

Fitted a blow back system and replaced existing 4” stainless steel piping.

Commissioned and tested


We employed KER Group to carry out a complete upgrade of the Vacuum pump system on board the MFV “Atlantic Quest”

  • Replaced existing Vacuum Pump
  • Supplied and fitted a Pneumatic Stainless steel 4 way valve
  • Removed existing 4” piping and replaced with stainless steel, incorporating a blow back system.
  • Removed the hydraulic controls and changeover to air and electric controls.

The pumping system is much quicker since the upgrade.
