If you’re in need of a big honkin’ propeller pump, look no further than the Abyzz Flow Cannon. Looking a lot more like an underwater Dive Scooter, and about as large, the Abyzz Flow Cannon moves so much water it’s clearly in a league of its own.
The Abyzz Flow Cannon, model name AFC 400, pushes up to 58,000 gallons per hour while using 400 watts of power. That kind of power and the force it generates requires very sturdy construction so the Flow Cannon has an all titanium internal framework.
Other parts of the pumps include carbon fiber and thermoformed plastic, but it still takes two hands to hold the Flow Cannon. Perhaps one of the most intriguing aspects to the design of the AFC 400 is the nozzle, which looks and functions very much like an eductor, working to multiply the flow that the pump natively generates.
Of course if you’re in the market for a pump that can empty a 55 gallon tank one thousand times per hour you won’t be shocked to learn that this machine sells for $8,000. Alas, while Abyzz does have smaller models of their centrifugal pumps available to hobbyists with large aquariums, it doesn’t seem like Abyzz is inclined to design a smaller version of their flow cannon, but we can still hope.
