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 pumps

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.
