Fluid-o-Tech Brass and Stainless Steel Magnet Drive Rotary Vane Pumps: TH 500-1000 Series

Fluid-o-Tech are a world-renowned manufacturer of rotary vane pumps. One of their more popular is the TH 500-1000 Series Stainless Steel Magnet Drive Rotary Vane Pumps.

The TH 500-1000 Series pumps work on the principle of positive displacement. They are available with stainless steel or brass housings. They are available in ½ inch NPT or GAS ports combined with internal relief valves.

They have nominal flow rates from 500 l/h to 1000 l/h at 1500 rpm. You can operate TH 500-1000 pumps at speeds up to 1725 rpm. They will deliver a flow range that is proportional with the speed of operation, maxing out at 320 GPH. The 500-1000 Series delivers a maximum discharge pressure of 14 bar.

Their design features sealless, magnetic coupling of the pump to the motor. This makes them more reliable and helps them provide you with a longer service life. TH 500-1000 pumps are easily mounted to the popular NEMA 56C or M80 IEC frame motors, but you need an adapter.

Fluid-o-Tech TH 500-1000 pumps are self-priming pumps that are set up for quiet operation. The magnetic coupling, as mentioned above, doesn’t require seals. They are NSF and WRAS listed, making them appropriate for all sanitary applications.

Fluid-o-Tech makes a full line of pumps for a host of industries, including food service, medical, scientific, environmental and water treatment applications.

Why Fluid-o-Tech?

Fluid-o-Tech were founded in Italy in 1948. They were originally named after the original founder, Franco Andreis. He handed the company off to his son Vittorio in 1964 and Vittorio is still overseeing the operation today.

They have transitioned from a small family business to a global enterprise, but they have kept their early core values: commitment to excellence, innovation and constant research and improvement. They have become so proficient that they only average 3.4 manufacturing defects for every 1,000,000 pieces manufactured.

That is amazing.

Fluid-o-Tech 4000 Series Pumps

The Fluid-o-Tech 4000 series consists of rotary vane pumps made of stainless steel. They feature the patented Fluid-o-Tech Rotoflow technology. The 4000 Series pumps are the largest Rotoflow pumps available from Fluid-o-Tech.

They are available in seven different levels of displacement. The rotor, the pump housing and all metal components are made of AISI 303 stainless steel. The vanes and the pumping chamber are made of high impact carbon graphite.

Fluid-o-Tech Pumps - 4000 Series

When carbon graphite combines with stainless steel, it is self-lubricating. This not only makes the pump extremely efficient, it also makes it great for water-based solutions.

The 4000 series pumps have female-threaded 1” NPT inlet and outlet ports. GAS ports are available upon request. They are available with Vitron or NBR seals. The maximum operating temperature is 70 degrees. The maximum motor speed is 1725 rpm. The maximum system pressure is 20 bar.

When operating at 1450 rpm, 4000 series pumps produce nominal flow rates starting at a low of 1000 l/h to a high of 2300 l/h. When operating at maximum speed, or 1725 rpm, they produce approximately 20% more output, maxing out at 2700 l/h.

4000 Series pumps can be mounted to M80, M90 IEC motors or they can also be mounted to NEMA 56C motors. You will need the correct adapters and the coupling has to be appropriate.

All pumps in the 4000 Series run quietly, are self-priming, have pulsation free flow and have a long service life.

Why Rotary Vane Pumps are Essential for Espresso

At Pump Solutions Australasia, we carry Rotoflow rotary vane pumps. They are made by Fluid-o-Tech, a world-renowned company that was founded in Italy in 1976.

A rotary vane pump is classified as a positive displacement pump. It contains vanes mounted to a rotor inside of a cavity. The basic design is one circular rotor mounted inside of one circular cavity. The circles can be concentric or they can be offset. The vanes slide out and keep contact with the cavity wall due to centrifugal force. This creates an inlet chamber and a discharge chamber, with fluid flowing from the inlet chamber to the discharge chamber.

Why Rotary Vane Pumps are Essential for Espresso

Besides espresso, rotary vane pumps are used for applications such as hydraulic pumps. In addition, your car or truck may have rotary vane pumps for your automatic transmission, power steering and supercharging units.

Why Rotary Vane Pumps are Popular for Espresso Machines

While they are occasionally used for espresso systems that have reservoirs or reserve tanks, rotary vane pumps are usually used for espresso machines that have a direct connection to a water line. One of the main advantages of rotary vane pumps is that they are nearly silent. Vibration pumps can be noisy and detract from the atmosphere of a restaurant or coffee shop. Rotary vane pumps are preferred in high-quality food and beverage operations.

When a rotary vane pump is engaged, the pressure is almost instant. Other pumps can take a minute or two to “ramp up,” wasting valuable service time. Rotary vane pumps are lower maintenance than many pumps because the motor is separate from the pump. This causes less downtime and less chance for a sanitation hazard.

The other big advantage that usually sways restaurant owners and those who manufacture espresso units: rotary vane pumps have a larger capacity than other pumps used for espresso machines. They can pump hundreds of dollars more worth of espresso each day. This can turn a “break even” proposition into a huge moneymaker.
