Pump Casing:

  • The casing utilizes sanitary clamps to lock the pump casing on the pump frame and to lock on the front cover.  The clamps allow easy rotation of the entire casing to easily position inlet/outlet nozzles where you need them---Clamp design provides 360 degree compression sealing on O rings. 
  • US-FIP® mounts the pump vertically on its shaft axis to allow rotation of inlet and outlet and to make disassembly/assembly easy!  No other manufacturer utilizes sanitary clamps for casing retention --- so even if the competition mounted their pumps vertically, they would have none of the advantages of US-FIP® ! 
  • Standard casing fittings are Tri-Clamp (bevel seat fittings are pictured, however, Tri-Clamp are standard) 
  • 3" and 2.5" pumps---large enough for any wineries tough must applications---2" pumps ideal for juice and wine transfer 
  • Simple, clean and innovative---US-FIP® 

 

 

backplate                     

 

Back Plate:

  • The unique US-FIP® back plate locks into place against the bearing frame and provides positive alignment to the pump housing.  This feature ensures an easy reassembly or impeller or seal change out.

  • Once locked onto the bearing frame, the operator no longer needs to struggle against the seal spring while attempting to clamp the housing in place

Bearing Frame:

  • Sealed Bearings! Our bearing frame features sealed bearings, there is no need to grease anything! No need to worry about the tough environment of your vineyard or winery, in addition, we have a lip seal in front of each bearing to ensure no dirt or water washdown gets to the bearings. 

  • Bearing frame features a front-pull-out design. The bearings are press fit to the shaft for cooler, longer operating life. Simply remove one snap ring and the shaft with bearings come out as an assembly.
