SPX FLOW offers safe transfer of hot liquids

1 min read

The pump is available in two configurations which are suitable for the pumping of hot oil or hot water. It keeps fluid temperatures uniform to ensure processes are efficient and predictable and its design protects seal faces and bearings from the heat of the fluid which ensures durable, low maintenance, long life operation.  It can be used in a number of applications including injection molding, chemical processing, asphalt or bitumen and tar processing, deep frying systems, steam generators, fuel heaters and heat recovery systems.

The pump design provides enhanced cooling using optimized cooling fans and large fins to keep the temperature around the shaft sealing below 220°F even at high process temperatures up to 660°F. The heavy duty centrifugal pump is centerline mounted which allows thermal expansion without affecting shaft alignment. The combination of low temperature and alignment protects seals and bearings means unit provides long life while minimizing maintenance overheads. The pumps are designed to handle high pressure throughout their flow range with hot oil pumps operating up to 360 psi and hot water pumps up to 450 psi.
