SETTIMA designs and manufactures hydraulic three screw pumps and helical rotor pumps.
Since ever, SETTIMA has focused on reducing the noise emissions, both through design choices and through constructive accuracy. This means not only low noise, but also longer lifetime and increased reliability. The SETTIMA pumps are reliable, because they work without producing vibration, ensuring to your applications very long lifetimes.
The SETTIMA screw pumps, coupled to electric motors for external or submerged use, are used in a wide range of hydraulic systems by engineers and designers from all around the world.
SETTIMA screw pumps are positive displacement pumps designed with axial flow. Inside the pump there are only three moving parts. The main screw is the only driven part and transmits the motion to the satellite screws. The satellite screws play also the role of creating pressure sealing areas.
Born from the tradition of SETTIMA, the CONTINUUM® PROJECT is the flagship of our ability of research and innovation. Bringing the helical form into the rotors of gear pumps we got CONTINUUM®, a unique mechanical component, able to provide incomparable performance and silent operation.
To meet the growing demand for power, designers and manufacturers of hydraulic devices have explored every opportunity for containing the noise and reducing pulsations.
When the lifespan of the system, environmental conditions, fuel consumption and functionality are critical, the only solution is to cut the problem at its root.
From the small steering system, up to the big garbage collection equipment, from the lubrication system, to the lift truck, the hydraulic systems are pivoted on hydraulic pumps that generate noise. Difficult to contain, the noise of the pumps, in most cases, is further developed by the system, which amplifies the pulsation of pressure. The resulting losses are a significant source of energy consumption and overall inefficiency.
The SETTIMA screw pumps meet the need of having a silent hydraulic component, but it was necessary to go further and provide a pump that had the characteristics of a gear pump and the silence of a screw pump. For this, SETTIMA created Continuum®.
Even under the most demanding conditions, Continuum® enables the system designer to implement new functions and properties, avoiding the need of expensive attenuators, flexible pipes and containers. Noise is removed at the root.
Equipped with the size and flanges of the most common hydraulic devices, such as gear pumps, Continuum® is ready to transform the way in which the end user perceives the hydraulic device. The ultimate solution to preserve the experience of silence. SETTIMA, introducing the Continuum® product line, paves the way for a sustainable fluid power.
