FLM / FLMF
Electrically operated vane pumps for use in oil circulation systems
The SKF FLM vane pump unit is a simple and reliable solution suitable for usage in small oil circulation systems with low pressure and low viscosity range. Because of its high suction capacity of up to 3 m (the SKF FLM pump unit is often used as a sump pump.
SKF vane pumps can deliver both oil and oil/air mixtures and provide a higher suction capability than gear pump units. Two different pump designs of the pump unit are available: one allows the pump to be mounted separately from the reservoir (FLM) and the other allows the pump to be flange-mounted on the reservoir (FLMF) both vertically and horizontally. When installed on the side (horizontally), ensure that the unit is mounted above the maximum lubricant level. Special designs with a sealed flange for mounting below the lubricant level are available on request.
