The AIMS SeaSim is a world class marine research aquarium facility for tropical marine organisms.  Using the SeaSim Australian and international scientists can research the impact of complex environmental changes with large, long term experiments in which they can manipulate key environmental factors.  With a reliable, consistent supply of seawater, SeaSim provides fine control over many environmental variables including: light, temperature, acidity, salinity, sedimentation & contaminants.
SeaSim’s design specifications include:
  • 3 000 000 litres filtered seawater pumped per day (at full capacity)
  • 3 650 000 litres of bulk seawater storage capacity
  • 3022 m2 of floor area
  • 28.2 km of pipework
  • >140 seawater pumps
  • 33 seawater processing tanks.

Supplied by Pumpspec Ltd:

30 CorroPump non-metallic close coupled pumps were installed on-site.

The use of thermoset synthetic resins for all wetted parts on these pumps was important for the elimination of metallic ions from the simulated marine environment. 

The legendary reliability of the CorroPump product was an important factor in the selection process for this fairly remote site.
