Quick Turnaround for a Hot Oil Pump Replacement

In the fast-paced world of industrial engineering, timely solutions can make all the difference. A Lead Mechanical Engineer at a Chemical Manufacturer in Decatur, Alabama, approached our company with an urgent request from the plant: they needed a replacement pump for a Dean 2096RA hot oil pump. Understanding the critical nature of this requirement, we acted swiftly to provide an effective solution.

Our trusted partners, Rotech Pumps, came through impressively. Within the same day, we received a quotation for a direct drop-in replacement pump from Rotech. The pump selected was a Rotech 1196 1×1.5-6, STR model, specifically designed for pumping Paratherm NF at 375°F without requiring any additional cooling.


Here’s a closer look at the specifications of the pump we provided:

  • Type: Rotech 1196 1×1.5-6, STR pump
  • Seal: Flexaseal Welded Bellows Cartridge Seal with F-V-D Gland
  • Seal Faces: A.I. Carbon vs. Silicon Carbide
  • Bellows: FFKM/A276 Hastelloy
  • Metallic Components: 316 stainless steel
  • Additional Feature: Bearing fin cooler assembly on the bearing frame

As a Fluid Handling Distributor, our speed of our response was crucial. We managed to quote the pump and receive a purchase order before our competition even acknowledged the inquiry from the customer. Our efficiency didn’t stop there; we delivered the pump just one week after receiving the order.

The results speak for themselves. The customer has been running the pump 24/7 without any issues. This successful quick turnaround highlights our commitment to providing fast, reliable, and high-quality solutions to suit our customers’ needs.

This instance is a testament to what can be achieved when everyone works together towards a common goal: keeping our customers up and running without difficulty.
