QuaX 3H50 power pack

Hatz provide the power behind new 3H50 industrial submersible pump power pack from QuaX

QuaX, the pump division of Burton-based Active Engineering, have designed and built a brand new 3H50 power pack for industrial submersible pumps.

The power pack, which was officially unveiled at Hillhead 2018, is powered by a Hatz 3H50TIC engine and ready to drive 4in and 6in hydraulic submersibles.


With the new EU Stage V emission regulations set to be enforced in early 2019, Active Engineering say they began designing the power pack in readiness to meet with these new rules.

The Hatz 3H50TIC is a three-cylinder diesel engine that is fully compliant with the current emission regulations both in the EU and the US, and is part of the H50 family that will meet the stringent EU Stage V regulations from 2019.

The 3H50 power pack produced by Active Engineering is part of their QuaX pumps range. It is very compact and fitted with a 24h diesel tank.

The power pack also features automatic high oil and low level shutdown, making it safe to run unattended. The complete unit is mounted on a skid with fork pockets and a safe lifting lug for easy movement around site.

The QuaX range of power packs is well known in the pumping industry; they are designed specifically to power the company’s line of submersible pumps. The new 3H50 power pack will complement the existing range of 10hp, 20hp and 35hp power packs.

Commenting on this new development, Active Engineering’s Allan Boast said: ‘Hatz GB have been very helpful to us in producing this power pack. We have matched our hydraulic system to the Hatz engine to make this great new unit. In addition, we are also very pleased to note how quiet the unit runs. We have used Hatz engines for many years and we know that they are well liked in the construction industry.’

Based in Burton on Trent, Staffordshire, Active Engineering are highly experienced pump manufacturers who, over the last 20 years, have designed and built more than 1,000 high-performance pumps for a range of demanding environments.

Hatz diesel engines have been around since 1910. From their manufacturing base in Ruhstorf, Germany, Hatz produce a range of modern diesel engines from 3kW to 55kW. Their UK subsidiary, Hatz GB Ltd, is centrally located in Hinckley, Leicestershire.
