Typical applications for the Johnson Pump CM100 include buses and trains; forklift trucks; and heavy-duty systems in agricultural equipment, construction and mining vehicles. More recently, the pumps are also finding applications in Thermal Management Systems for hybrid and electric vehicles.

Featuring a brushless 24V DC motor designed for a 40,000 hour service life, the CM100 eliminates brush maintenance and related motor failures. Its magnetic drive means there are no shaft bearings that can deteriorate or leak: a factor which assists in making the pump resistant to damage from dry running and prolongs service life.

Two pump options are available:

  • The CM100HP for high pressure applications is suitable for system pressures of -0.2 to +2.5 bar at 100°C. It offers either 25 mm (1") or 38 mm (1½") ports, both of which deliver a flow rate of 85 l/min at 1 bar.
  • The CM100HF for high flow applications features a 38mm (1½") port and offers a nominal flow of 135 l/min at 0.4 bar. It is designed to withstand ambient operating temperatures of -40°C to +105°C at liquid temperatures of up to 93°C.

The CM100 is rated to IP6K9K and IP67, ensuring a high degree of reliability in the most demanding environmental conditions. These IP ratings confirm the pump to be waterproof, dustproof and to withstand salt and high-pressure/steam jet cleaning. The pump is also tested and approved according to applicable standards to withstand shock and vibrations. In addition, the metal design of the CM100 allows it to meet the flammability rating UL 94 Class V0, which is required in train applications. It is also EMC R10

Multi screw pump moves highly viscous heavy oil at low NPSHa

22.02.2024 -

At a tank farm in a Brazilian sea port, two centrifugal pumps were used for transferring heavy oil from storage tanks to road tankers or vessels until February 2020. This required the high viscosity of the medium to be reduced by means of diesel injection, costing the owner at least 2,000 US dollars each day. In addition, the centrifugal pumps regularly broke down due to cavitation damage. The owners decided to initially replace one of the two centrifugal pumps with a NOTOS multi screw pump from NETZSCH. Due to its very good suction capabilities, the selected four-screw 4NS is also suitable for highly viscous media with up to 200,000 cSt, achieving a flow rate of up to 3000 m³/h.
