Who is Salvatore Robuschi?
Salvatore Robuschi is an Italian Pump Manufacturer building customer-orientated Centrifugal Pump systems since 1935. They pride themselves on developing modular Centrifugal Pumps, tailored to individual customer needs in various material and hardware combinations.
What’s different about Robuschi Centrifugal Pumps?
Salvatore Robuschi has developed a heavy-duty modular design pump featuring core products that can then be built up per each customer’s demands. Numerous impeller designs (Closed, Open, Channel & Vortex) can be fitted to the same size of pumps which can also be configured in up to 15 different sealing combinations and the following executions, as well as vertical immersion and cantilever types.
By using micro-casting technology for components such as their impellers and casings, Salvatore Robuschi can deliver their pumps with high energy efficiencies and low NPSHr values, even when fitted with open impellers, which are generally inefficient when compared to closed impeller designs.
Robuschi stock components enable them to produce almost any size of the pump in either Stainless Steel AISI 316 or Cast Iron within a few weeks, enabling them to respond quickly and effectively to a wide variety of customer demands and applications, which other manufacturers would struggle to achieve.
More exotic materials of construction are also available on request to cater for more arduous applications. Some of these include:
- Duplex Stainless Steel with wetted parts in SAF 2205
- Super Duplex with wetted parts in SAF 2507
- AISI 304L & 904L
- Sanicro 28
- Hastelloy C & B
- CA6NM (Wear Resistant Material) with a 400 Brinnel Hardness
What applications can be Robuschi Centrifugal pumps be used for?
Robuschi Pumps are ideal for large industrial applications, such as:
- Chemical Transfer
- Tanning & Textiles
- Waste Water Treatment: Preliminary Screening, Primary Treatment, Clarification, Dissolved Air Flotation (DAF), Ultra-Filtration, Demineralisation (UF & RO), Back Washing
- Anaerobic Digestion: Digester Recirculation, Anaerobic Digestate Concentration, Forced Circulation Vacuum Evaporation, Multiple Effect Evaporation
- Wet Scrubbers: Blast Furnace Scrubbers & Wet Scrubbers
- Open Pit & Sump Unloading
- Pumping process fluids & slurries with suspended solids
- High-Temperature Transfer up to 500ºC
- Solvent & Fuel Transfers
What are the benefits of using a Salvatore Robuschi Centrifugal Pump?
- Quick delivery times (average of 15-35 working days) on the whole range
- Quick & readily available spares availability; shipment of spare parts (including seals) can be made within 24/72 hrs
- Modular Design
- The commonality of Spares across various sizes and configurations means lower spares holding costs.
- Pumps can be upgraded or modified to different applications without changing the whole pump.
- Through their Micro-Cast (Lost Wax), castings absorbed powers and efficiencies of their units are less than their traditionally cast counterparts. This means a reduction in the cost of operation, which typically represents up to 65% of the total cost of ownership.
Can Robuschi Centrifugal Pumps run dry?
Salvatore Robuschi’s surface-mounted centrifugal pumps, fitted with mechanical seals, cannot be run dry as standard. However, various flushing systems can be fitted to these units to enable the mechanical seals to be constantly lubricated.
Robuschi’s Vertical Immersion and Cantilever Pumps are Sealless and therefore do not feature a mechanical seal; therefore, these pumps can be run dry indefinitely. This means that they can be used in-pit and sump evacuation without the need for level controls.
Can they be hygienic or only for industrial applications?
Salvatore Robuschi Pumps are not supplied according to sanitary certification levels. However, FDA approved seals and elastomers can be fitted as well as DIN 11851 hygienic connections and motor shrouds to enable them to be used in many food applications such as:
- Fruit & Tomato Processing Lines: Receiving, Washing & Sorting, Rotary Drum Filtration, Hot Break, Forced Circulation & Evaporation, Tube In Tube Pasteurisation, Cooling Towers
- Meat / Fish & Poultry: Fishmeal Stick Water, Meat & Offal Processing, Slaughterhouses
- Distillation & Wine Production: Distillation, Stillage & Cross Flow Filtration
- Vacuum Fillers
- Spiral Pasteurisers
- Dirty Hot Oil Transfers
- Dissolved Air Flotation
- Effluent Treatment
