Electrically operated vane pumps for use in oil circulation systems

Electrically operated vane pumps for use in oil circulation systems FLMF12
FLMF vane pump unit with reservoir

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.
