• Durable cast iron pump housing built to withstand the wear and tear of rough operating environments• Removable junction box allows for easier installation• Thermal overload protection prevents motor from overheating during abnormal usage• Pump is capable of pumping fluid out of an 8' deep storage tank at sea level• Rugged switch lever is designed to endure heavy abuse
In July of 2020, Tuthill released the H Series revision to all Fill-Rite 600, 1200, 2400, 4200, and 4400 series models. The H Series replaces the older G series version of the pump. With the updated version, a removable junction box to make installation easier was added and a more robust heavy duty switch lever was installed to ensure the pump withstands the abuse of rough operating environments. While there was no change to the performance specifications, Tuthill is extending their protection coverage from 2 years to a limited lifetime policy (details can be found in the new Tuthill policy located on each product page). Finally, customers will have access to 4 new complete system based models that were created....

Nextec Intelligence is an exclusive array of design advancements, technologies and user functionalities that take pump performance to unprecedented levels. Fill-Rite's NX25 series is the first complete product line to offer the Nextec Intelligence platform. The NX25 is a self-priming continuous duty pump (no duty cycle) that is able to run dry in bypass mode without damage, allowing fuel to be dispensed all day with less downtime due to short duty cycles or overheating. Bung or foot mounted, NX25 series come in the following model configurations: pump only, standard accessories, digital meter package, or arctic package. Available with both DC (dual current 12V/24V) and AC (120V or 240V) options, this product delivers fuel more efficiently and cost effectively than its competition. Predicts. Protects. Performs.
Rotary vane technology is a positive displacement (fixed volume) pump design that utilizes an offset rotor with sliding vanes that rotates on a motor shaft inside the pump. The vanes move outward against the pump cavity to form individual chambers (positive displacement). Fuel enters into the pump cavity through the inlet port on the rotor side where the vanes are fully extended. As the rotor turns, the vanes collapse inward creating the pressure that forces the fuel into the discharge port and through the hose.
Advantages of rotary vane technology…..
The maximum suction lift rating refers to the maximum vertical distance that a pump can lift fuel out of a tank. On rotary vane pumps, suction lift is created due to the offset of the rotor in the pump cavity, which increases the volume in the chamber between the vanes, thus lowering the pressure on the pump’s inlet. Atmospheric pressure, which is now greater than the inlet pressure in the pump, moves the fuel from the tank to the pump cavity (self-priming).
Suction lift is determined by the pump specifications, the type of fuel, and the altitude of the location where the pump is installed. Higher altitudes reduce the suction lift of a pump due to the reduced atmospheric pressure.
To achieve maximum suction lift, the inlet plumbing should be as straight as possible with no elbows or bends in the line. Accessories, such as filters, should not be installed on the inlet side of the pump. Valves should be set with minimum spring pressure and must contain a pressure relief valve.
Discharge pressure refers to the systems pressure while dispensing. It effects flow-rate based on the pump’s design - the lower the discharge pressure, the higher the flow-rate.
Variables that increase discharge pressure/decrease flow-rate:
To lower discharge pressure/increase flow-rate, remove or limit restrictions. Examples include, moving from a 10 micron filter to 30 micron filter, changing from a 800 series to a 900 series or TT10 series, limiting the use of elbows in system design, or increasing the diameter of your discharge hose/pipe.
