The Fluid-o-Tech FG100 Series pump-motor unit may be small, but it packs a big punch, and it is one of the most versatile pumps in the market, and we are proud to be able to make it available to our customers across Australia.
The FG100 is a type of gear water pump. It is called a “pump-motor unit” because the pump and motor are housed together in the same unit. The unit has a stainless steel housing that protects all of the non-metallic parts. This allows the pump to comply with even the most stringent sanitary requirements in the food and beverage industry.
It has an electromagnetic drive and a brushless DC motor. The drive transmits the rotation in a smooth and efficient manner, with almost silent operation. The housing not only helps the pump adhere to sanitary regulations, and is sealed off from the electronics. The pump can be controlled by the logic of the machine. The end results are ultimate flexibility and complete control.
We feel that combining external gear pump technology with a rotor-less, brushless DC motor, gives you the best of both worlds. The pump ends up being simple, powerful, and light, with consistent and long-lasting performance. In other words, it does a great job for a long time with minimal maintenance.
The FG100 is adaptable to many different uses and for many different machines. In the food industry, its main uses are in espresso coffee machines and food processing equipment. It provides a powerful, consistent stream of sanitary water, and enough pressure for tasty espresso coffee.
This pump is also approved for use in medical equipment. Once again, its adherence to the most stringent of sanitary standards makes it a natural for equipment that needs to be copacetic more often than not.
When it comes to cooling systems, its steady and powerful output from a compact space makes it perfect for cooling use. It’s even used to cool laser systems. In addition, it can be used for laboratory instrumentation and lubrication.
The FG100 is extremely compact; it measures only 57 mm X 57 mm X 82 mm. It is also very light, weighing only 675 g. Despite its size, it puts out up to 50 watts of power. The 24 V motor has a speed range between 500 and 5000 rpm. The maximum static pressure is 20 bar, with a maximum vacuum pressure of 724 mmHg.
Because it is so compact, it can be easily integrated into a lot of devices. The ports are 1/8”GAS, but with adapters and hoses, it can be retro-fitted to almost any application.
So, what does this mean to you? It means that we are now offering one of the most reliable and versatile pumps in the business. One wouldn’t think that espresso coffee and lasers have very much in common, but they are two of the most common applications for this pump.
Really, we’re not surprised that Fluid-o-Tech has come out with a product that is so compact, versatile, and powerful. Fluid-o-Tech has been making quality products since 1948. The company, originally called Andreis s.r.l. was established by Franco Andreis in Italy, and Vittorio Andreis, his son, took over the company in 1964.
In its original format, Andreis s.r.l. served the automotive, aeronautic, textile, and computing industries. In 1976, Andreis formed Fluid-o-Tech to concentrate on the production and design of fluid handling systems. They started with rotary vane pumps and oscillating piston pumps.
They would eventually establish a US division in 1991, and a Japan division in 1997. In 2006, they established Fluid-o-Tech Asia in Beijing, China, and in 2009 they established Fluid-o-Tech Engineering North America. They now produce gear pumps, rotary vane pumps, solenoid pumps, proportioning pumps, and other pump systems.
We are proud to carry their products, and we value their years of experience in production, engineering, and in being able to come up with the right products for the right uses at the right time.
For you, this is the beginning of another long line of high-quality products. We announced earlier that we are carrying the Fluid-o-Tech F-Soda stream system, and we will continue to make more of their products available, for both home and business applications, Australia wide.
As we continue to evolve and find more great products to give you even more choices, you, as our valued customers, will continue to benefit from these. We take our stated mission of improving our value to customers by offering a comprehensive product range and attentive service very seriously, and we will continue to do our due diligence and find even more solutions and a wider range of reliable pump products in Australia.
In the end, we all win. We become a better company, and you get better products and services.
