A Roto-Jet High Pressure Pitot Tube Pump.

The Backward Pump

Roto-Jet® is built on the pitot tube pump concept which, because of its unique rotating case design, is sometimes referred to as “The Backward Pump”. Over the decades, the pitot tube’s simple design and versatile performance have achieved a reputation as the solution to many high-pressure pumping problems.

Designed to Handle Your Tough Applications.

We are proud that our high-pressure, single-stage centrifugal pumps, with advanced pitot tube technology, are successful for demanding low-flow, high-head applications.

Roto-Jet pumps are designed to handle tough applications across multiple industries. And because of this, the Roto-Jet pump has earned a global reputation for reliability and robustness by meeting the demanding requirements of these applications. We focus on specific industries and ensure your standards are met.

Simple Yet Effective.

The operating characteristics of the Roto-Jet pump are simple and similar to a conventional centrifugal pump. Energy is added to the fluid via the rotor, and the stationary pitot tube converts the fluid velocity energy into static pressure.

Features and Benefits:

  • No external lube system required
  • No wear rings or close running clearances
  • Robust design is insensitive to process upsets
  • Pulsation free flow over the entire head-flow curve
  • Reduced life cycle cost by optimizing hydraulic efficiency
  • Process seals exposed only to suction pressure for maximum seal life
  • High heads achieved in a single stage at low operating speeds compared to other low-flow, high-head pump
  • Adjustable performance with change in pitot tube for high flexibility
  • Only two basic working parts for simplicity
  • Hydraulically stable along the entire performance curve and beyond BEP
  • API 610 design available

A Broad Operating Range.

The Roto-Jet pitot tube pump has been specifically designed and manufactured to achieve a broad operating range without creating damaging hydraulic forces in the pump. The pitot tube is stationary in the 12 o’clock position to facilitate venting of the rotor during start-up.

Its unique attributes make the Roto-Jet pumps an excellent choice for severe low-flow, high-head process applications to continually increase the time between failures.

Roto-Jet RO-FT API 610

Roto-Jet RO-FT API 610 pump works specifically for demanding low-flow high-head services fully meeting the requirements of API 610.

The RO-FT between-bearing configuration provides a reliable, robust and easy to maintain pump for the midstream and downstream refining, petrochemical and chemical processing industries. Designed specifically for demanding low-flow high-head services, this pump fully meets the requirements of API 610. The operating characteristics of the Roto-Jet® RO-FT API 610 pump are simple and similar to a conventional centrifugal pump. Energy is added to the fluid via the rotor, and the stationary Pitot tube converts the fluid velocity energy into static pressure. In addition, the Roto-Jet® RO-FT API 610 pump has been specifically designed to achieve a broad operating range without generating damaging hydraulic forces during a process upset. These attributes result in improved mechanical seal and bearing life to maximize Mean Time Between Failure, and decrease operational and maintenance costs, which make the Roto-Jet the most cost effective choice for low-flow high head process applications.

Key features/benefits

API 610 11th Edition compliant, Standard API 682 cartridge seals, No external lube system required, No wear rings or close running clearances, Low NPSH3 without the use of an inducer, Robust design is insensitive to process upsets, Pulsation free flow over the entire head-flow curve, Integral gearbox is isolated from process seal leakage, Reduced life cycle cost by optimising hydraulic efficiency, Process seals exposed only to suction pressure for maximum seal life, Between bearings arrangement minimises shaft deflection at the seals, Bearing L10 life exceeds API 610 requirements using rolling element bearings, Patented rotor eliminates radial and axial thrust as a function of flow rate and suction pressure, High heads achieved in a single stage at low operating speeds compared to other low-flow, high-head pumps.
