Rotary vane pumps: Procon , Fluid o Tech Nuert
Found on plumbed machines or top end home machines.
Rotary vane pumps have a life span of 4-6 years depending on use. They can get blocked when debris in the water gets into the ball bearings and prevent the shaft from rotating. Always best practise to fit a sediment filter on the water inlet part on the pump to prevent pump blockage and a pre sediment filter in the case of seasonal debris getting into the water table.
Your rotary vane coffee pump may need replacing if:
- You are still loosing cream after adjusting pressure nut at the side
- Pump, pumps dry when fully plumbed and water pressure gauge is at 3-4 bars - sounds noisy and no water from the group.
- Machine not in use during winter months and sited near the sea - bearings will be rusted with lack of use particularly if near the sea.
Rotary vane pumps are easy to replace, approx 30- 40 minutes. Before replacing check that the shaft rotates - sometimes they can be stiff and you may have to use a pliers if shaft is stiff.
