When you’re in the field with a broken down hot thermal centrifugal pump, you can be hard-pressed to find a suitable replacement. You could try and reach out to the OEM or another manufacturer, but the turnaround—by itself—could cost you significant time and money. What you need is a reasonable pump replacement, fast. Vulcan Pumps offers aftermarket hot oil and hot water pumps well-suited to replace many different manufactured thermal pumps.
About Our Hot Oil and Hot Water Pumps
Vulcan Pumps’ hot oil and hot water pumps are available in two main types: CombiTherm and CombiTherm+. Specific application requirements will inform which type is right for your site. For instance, the foot-mounted, 150-pound CombiTherm pump is used often for hot oil – asphalt applications as it excels at pumping therminol to heat up asphalt.
Our CombiTherm pump is a 150-pound, foot-mounted flange pump at 232 PSI. The pump ensures process temperatures are uniform and damaging heat stays clear of seal bearings and faces, which avoids the need for external cooling when used properly. Core features include the throttle bush, journal bearing, and seal placement—all of which work to decrease circulation and temperature along the pump.
The pump works well in a number of industry settings and applications, including food preparation, asphalt, roofing and roads, rubber and plastics, paper and wood, and high-temperature hot water heating systems.
Our CombiTherm+ pump is a center-mounted, 300+ pound flange pump at 360 PSI. While both CombiTherm and CombiTherm+ can handle the same kind of hot oil, water, and/or glycol applications, CombiTherm+ has the capacity to handle the most stringent requirements. It’s built to handle hot water glycol mixtures, and is specifically made to eliminate expensive mechanical seal and seal support systems. CombiTherm+ boasts key service-life features, including a high efficiency impeller, single mechanical seal balanced with EPDM O-rings, optimized cooling fans, and life-saving magnetic drain plug for seals and bearings.
