Screw Pumps

These screw pumps are volumetric self-priming pumps suited to handle oils and liquids with a minimum lubricating quality. The design simplicity makes these screw pumps intrinsically reliable and efficient.

epicycloidal screw pumps
Three epicycloidal screws rotate inside a replaceable casing with close tolerances, so forming sealed chambers and provoking the axial displacement of the fluid.

The idler spindles rotate without contact with the driving spindle because of the fluid itself, therefore being free from radial forces.

The accurate hydraulic balance and the special profile of the screw thread guarantee a continuous flow with minimum pulsations and turbulance, resulting in extremely low noise levels even at high rotational speed.

The screws epicycloidal profiling is developed through a complex computerised calculation which not only perfectly defines their shape, but also controls the production with continuous monitoring of machinery process, consequently assuring a high degree of repeatable quality.

The high quality level of these screw pumps is guaranteed by a final testing on 100% of the manufactured products.

2) Screw pump applications

Lubrication Applications

» Lubricating system for: speed variators, turbines, gearboxes, papermill machines, hot forming machines.
» Lubrication system for the petrochemical, iron and steel, and mining industries as well as shipbuilding.

Driving Applications

» Machine tools, bed traversing.
» Hydraulic presses.
» Hydraulic units for elevators.
» Hydraulic supporting.
» Rolling mills.

» Test benches.
» Sheet metal machines.
» Plastic molding machines.
» Medical Units.

Recirculation and Filtering Applications

» Cooling Lubrication: deep hole drilling, pipe boring, chip conveyors.
» Filtering: mobile filtering systems, off-line filtering systems for process machines and machine tools, hydrualic presses, textile machines, grinding machines.
» Heat Exchanging: injectors heating for plastic molding machines, heat exchangers.
» Flushing and Boosting: piping systems washing, hydraulic systems flushing, boost circuits.

Fluids to be pumped

» Hydraulic oils.
» Lubricating oils.
» Diathermic oils.

» Oil-in-water emulsions (min. oil percentage 5%).
» Light and heavy fuel oils.
» Phosphoric esters.

3) Characteristics

» Compatible with a wide range of viscosities from 1 to 12,000 cSt and above.
» Efficiently working also at very low temperatures (-20°C).
» High self-priming capacity.
» High rotation rates = minimizing the size and cost of the pump.
» Steady flow rate = maximum efficiency in heat exchange applications.
» Special design for systems with entrained air in the lubricant = minimizing the vibrations and noise caused by air.
» Minimum sensitivity to particle pollution = longest life of the pump and circuit.
» Continuous operating pressures up to 130 bar, peak 200 bar.
» Pulsation-free = maximum efficiency of filtering applications.
» Extremely quiet.
