What are Carbon Vanes?

Carbon Vanes are used in a variety of applications including pumps, oil meters, compressors in fuel meters in a range of sectors including industrial , mechanical and automotive. Often our products are used in dry running rotary compressors and vacuum pumps, mobile compressors on bulk delivery tankers, printing machinery, spray paint equipment, packing machinery, food processing equipment, wet running vane pump and meters, automotive diesel fuel pumps, drink vending machines and fuel tanker meters.

Our carbon vanes are made from resin bonded graphite and designed for use at temperatures up to 180°c. Due to the nature of carbon, the likelihood of a chemical reaction between the pumping solution and the carbon vane is almost non existent.

One of the main advantages of this type of product is that they are self lubricating and therefore very useful for pumping liquids with poor lubricative properties such as petrol. The lack of lubricative grease means that the liquid being pumped is free of contaminants.
