Pump Solutions Australasia Introduces New Fluid-O-Tech F-Soda Streaming System

Leading pumps provider Pump Solutions Australasia enables Perth area businesses and residents to make their own soda for a fraction of the price of bottled soda.

Pump Solutions Australasia is proud to offer the Fluid-O-Tech F-Soda water carbonation system to Australian homes and businesses. F-Soda is completely self-contained, and is easily integrated into many different appliances. F-Soda is compact but versatile, and has many applications. It can be used for vending machines, post-mix, soda dispensers, and home dispensers.

F-Soda’s patented design allows it to operate at low pressure, producing higher safety and reliability standards than the norm using existing technology. Despite the low pressure, it reaches high levels of carbonation. The F-Soda is highly adaptable, and it can be adjusted and set for carbonation level by using the CO2 pressure regulator. It can also be adjusted for various water to post mix ratios to adjust the taste of the soda.

Fluid-O-Tech F-Soda Streaming System

F-Soda is built sturdily but simply, and is very easy for professionals and non-professionals alike to use. The system is equipped with an integrated circuit board which seamlessly integrates and controls its various functions. This allows the user to get optimum results with minimal effort. The F-Soda is equipped with a low-noise pump that not only makes less noise, but consumes less energy than standard pumps.

The F-Soda is twice as big as a standard home use soda stream system, but still compact. It measures 430 mm in height by 146 mm in width, and has a 1.29 litre tank with an available fluid volume of 1.0 litre. The tank takes 90 seconds to refill, and the recommended water temperature is between 4° to 8° Celsius or 40° to 47° Fahrenheit.

Mike Hurlbatt, Owner of Pump Solutions Australasia, is excited to offer F-Soda: “We don’t just sell every product that comes into the marketplace. We do our research well, and only offer products that we feel provide above-average performance for their price points. We are very happy with the F-Soda, and we feel that small businesses and home users alike will be very satisfied with how quickly and easily it prepares great soda.”

Hurlbatt continued, “It is compact, but performs as well as the large, bulky machines used in restaurants. Best of all, the soda is every bit as good as that at your favourite restaurant. In some cases, it’s even better, because you can control the amount of carbonation and the mix ratio.”

Hurlbatt elaborated: “It is well-known that major restaurant chains make proprietary tweaks in mix ratios and psi values to produce tastes that are unique to their brand. The F-Soda allows users the opportunity to do the same thing when customising their own sodas. The basic adjustments are easy: more syrup, less syrup, more carbonation, and less carbonation.”

Hurlbatt concluded, “If you ever wanted fresh soda the way you like it, on your terms, at your time, and in your home or business, F-Soda will provide it for you. The F-Soda water carbonation system is truly a professional system that is now available for home use.”

Pump Solutions Australasia is an Australian firm that provides quality pumps for all your needs, from commercial and industrial water and waste pumps to home submersible pumps and soda dispensers.

Fluid-o-Tech Pumps: the Industry Standard for Aggressive Fluids

Fluid-o-Tech pumps have a sterling reputation in the food and beverage industry. But did you know that the same characteristics that make them so popular in the food and beverage industry also make them one of the best pumps in the world for aggressive fluids?

Fluid-o-Tech Pumps: the Industry Standard for Aggressive Fluids

Fluid-o-Tech direct drive rotary vane pumps are positive displacement pumps. They offer a high flow rate, with flow directly proportional to the speed of the pump. Rotary vane pumps feature some characteristics that make them highly appropriate for pumping aggressive materials.

Fluid-o-Tech direct drive rotary vane pumps are made of stainless steel, which is resistant to all but the most corrosive of fluids. They offer a pulse-free delivery that provide stability and consistency. Not only do they have a high flow rate, they also have high capacity for pressure, resulting in heads up to 180 metres.

They are compliant with NSF, EU1935/2004 and WRAS. The same power that produces such high heads also produces high rates of suction. They are also reversible and require no check valves. They are ultra-efficient, resulting in a long life cycle and low consumption of energy.

Other Applications for Fluid-o-Tech Direct Drive Rotary Pumps

Fluid-o-Tech Direct Drive Rotary Pumps are also used in many other industries. They combine the ability to keep fluids uncontaminated due to their stainless steel construction and their design. That makes them valuable and versatile, not only for aggressive fluids, but for any situation in which sanitation is a must and cross-contamination is forbidden.

They are used in the environmental industry, food service, scientific applications, medical environments, for the transport of inks and paint, in water treatment and in many other industries. They can be used for transfer of fluids, pressurisation and circulation.

How to Make the Best Coffee in the World

Coffee MachineWater pumps come in all shapes and sizes, but Fluid-o-Tech has come up with a way to make your coffee infinitely better.

It is called the F-Caffe, and it is a nanofiltration system that you can install on your coffee machine. The F-Caffe is technically a reverse osmosis pump.

Your water affects the way your coffee tastes. If you can remove all impurities from water before it goes through your coffee grounds, you are eliminating a lot of particles and chemicals that keep your coffee from tasting as pure as it could. Not only does removing impurities from water make your coffee taste better, but it keeps the impurities from crystallising inside of your coffee machine.

Water is known as the “universal solvent,” and for good reason. Rainwater goes through the ground into underground pools where it is called “groundwater.” By the time it comes back up from underground, it has absorbed a lot of organic substances. These are both good and bad; the good news is that your water has plenty of minerals. The bad news is that it also has heavy metals and bacteria.

Even some of the minerals which would normally be good can make coffee taste terrible. In the case of magnesium and calcium salts, they make the water “hard.” This makes it more difficult for the water to help release many subtle flavour enhancers present within coffee. However, removing these impurities allows your coffee to fully release its flavour.

The F-Caffe removes these impurities by their nanofiltration process, which is a highly effective form of reverse osmosis. The short version of how reverse osmosis works is that when you push water through a semipermeable membrane, the water gets through but the impurities don’t.

By the time the F-Caffe’s filtering process is finished, the water has become softened, and is free of all impurities that can foul the taste of coffee. The water’s salinity has been reduced, contaminants are gone, and the pH is still the same.

No matter what application you are using this for, from espresso to a large, industrial coffee-maker, the F-Caffe will remove impurities and improve your coffee. The F-Caffe is compatible with any coffee machine. For more information, call 1300 922 973.

Product Improvements from Fluid-o-Tech and Grundfos Ring in the New Year

First of all, we’d like to wish everyone a happy and prosperous 2013. We’d also like to thank the best people in the world for making it a great 2012: our customers.

The New Year is a great time to reflect on the past, learn from it, and look to the future. At Pump Solutions Australasia, we are constantly tweaking and adjusting our product line to meet the demands of the present and future, but we never forget who we were or who we are.

We started in 1990 as Pumps and Services Australia. Originally, we developed hydraulic and vacuum solutions for many different industries, including mining, manufacturing, and fishing. We designed and custom-built an automated vacuum system that the Geraldton Fish Markets would use to vastly decrease the time it took for fish to be transported from the fishing vessel to the wharf to be processed.

In 2000, we decided to stop manufacturing pumps and take advantage of our connections with the finest manufacturers in the world, including elite German and Italian companies, to provide Australians with a wide range of the best pumps in the world.

Finally, in 2008, we would become Pump Solutions Australasia. And now, we are Australia’s leading wholesalers and distributors of residential, commercial, and industrial pumps. We carry an incredible range of pumps for every situation and every need, from small residential buildings to large factories to large water processing facilities.

Two of our popular brands are Fluid-o-Tech and Grundfos. We’d like to tell you about a few changes and new products from both companies. Just as we are tweaking and adjusting our product lines, so are the great manufacturers. Fluid-o-Tech and Grundfos are always on the cutting edge of technological advances.

We’ll start with Fluid-o-Tech. Last year, Fluid-o-Tech changed the profile on their PO/PA 70-400 series pumps. They used to be built with the classic, finned profile, but they are now built with a completely smooth profile. Fluid-o-Tech had already adjusted the rest of their pumps to smoother, sleeker profiles to improve efficiency and aesthetics. The PO/PA 70-400 series is the latest in their product line to undergo this change for the better.

Building on the success of the first generation of their TMFR and TSFR lines, Fluid-o-Tech has produced a second generation of the entire TMFR and TSFR product lines. The first generation was an evolution in the industry, as it integrated a magnetic drive rotary vane pump with what would turn out to be a brilliant improvement: a DC brushless variable speed drive.

Since Fluid-o-Tech refuses to ever rest on their laurels, they have improved the line again for the second generation models, to optimise the series for every possible condition. New changes include a more versatile electronic controller, a lighter and more efficient motor, an external control board, and a wider speed range. The TMFR and TSFR can now adapt to changes in the pressure or temperature of their immediate environments.

Grundfos has also been busy. They introduced the new, Renewable Solar Inverter, which allows pump and pumping stations to operate with nothing but solar power. This allows Grundfos to design and build pumps for situations involving the transport of extremely large amounts of water. Since their pumps can now run on solar power, they can also be installed in more isolated situations, and can be used for the largest jobs in the country.

Since the price of solar panels has gone down over the years, due to increased demand and more efficient production, Grundfos pumps can provide efficient but reasonably-priced solutions to nearly every need.

Grundfos also announced the new range of high-performing axial flow pumps with a feature called the “Unique Turbulence Optimiser.” The line is called the KPL Axial-flow Propeller Pump. The KPL is an axial flow propeller pump that is designed to produce high flow at low head. It has a flow capacity as high as 700 m3/min at a head of up to 9m. It is designed for flood control, but is quite versatile, and can be used for any situation where a lot of water needs to be pumped.

Grundfos custom-builds each KPL pump to ensure cost-efficient performance, and encourages customers to talk to their engineers in the planning stages to ensure that the pump is optimised to each customer’s individual needs. Some projected uses besides flood control: drainage and irrigation, raw-water intake, use in water parks to circulate large quantities of water, filling or emptying reservoirs, and even treated sewage.

Grundfos guarantees high quality, and a product that is both effective and cost-effective. They consider it to be the best value for your money; they individually test and register each pump.

That’s it for now: Happy New Year.

Manufacturer’s Spotlight: Fluid-o-Tech Rotary Vane Pumps

When it comes to rotary vane pumps, Fluid-o-Tech is known by many as the best manufacturer in the world. That’s why we import their high quality pumps to Australia. So, what sets Fluid-o-Tech apart from other manufacturers, especially when it comes to rotary vane pumps? Let’s take a look at Fluid-o-Tech’s history and values.

History of Fluid-o-Tech

Fluid-o-Tech Rotary Vane Pumps in Perth

Fluid-o-Tech was originally founded in Italy in 1948 under the name “Andreis s.r.l.” It was named after its founder, Franco Andreis. In 1964, he handed the reins of the company over to his son, Vittorio, who is still managing it. Vittorio Andreis created Fluid-o-Tech in 1976 to better serve the public. Vittorio has grown Fluid-o-Tech from a family operation to a major presence in the global marketplace, with annual revenues of more than 35 million euros.

In 1976, Fluid-o-Tech concentrated solely on rotary vane pumps and oscillating piston pumps from their location in italy. They now have facilities in Italy, the US, Japan and China.

Values of Fluid-o-Tech

Fluid-o-Tech was built on basic values such as innovation, a commitment to excellence and innovation in their field. They are known for integrity, high quality products and a culture of constant research and improvement.

Currently, they embrace the Six Sigma philosophy in which manufacturing defects are reduced to less than 3.4 for every million units produced. The Six Sigma process encourages “thinking outside the square” through two processes. The first process is called “DMAIC.” It stands for “define, measure, analyse, improve and control.” The second process is called “IDOV,” which stands for “identify, design, optimise and verify.”

What Sets Fluid-o-Tech Apart

Fluid-o-Tech employs advanced R&D and engineering techniques such as partnering with universities and research centres. They use 3-D modeling and maintain a constant focus on developing and innovating products.
