The Verus 850 is Pentair Aquatic Eco-Systems’ latest addition of large pumps aimed at aquaculture facilities and commercial aquaria. With a non-corrosive all plastic design and stainless steel internals the pumps are saltwater rated, and the pumps feature “breakthrough” impellers for increased longevity and higher more efficient performance. The pumps are available in one phase models for those that wish to run the pumps at 230 volt or three phase models for those wishing to run the pumps at higher voltages.
As can be seen in the flow chart the Pentair Verus 850 pumps come in a quite large variety of flow rates with the smallest pumps of the series, the VREK5-12, pushing around 350 gallons per minute, and the largest pumps models, the VREK-60, and REC-60 pushing around 850 gallons per minute. The VREK5-12 and VREK-60 and REC-60 retail for $2995.00 and $3950.00 respectively, although the latter are currently on sale for $3555.00.
