The carbonator motor mounting uses a circular clamp, similar to a hose clamp, as means of attaching the pump to a specially machined hub on the motor. This concept was ﬁrst developed for the vending machine industry to pump carbonated beverages in soft drink dispensers. The main advantages are compactness and economy due to the elimination of the adapter casting. Carbonator motors are readily available from electric motor distributors.
The rotary gear pump features an all bronze design and 303 stainless steel shafts with options of non-metallic gears and a variety of shaft seals. The built-in relief valve is available in multiple options; internal recirculation to suction side or external connection for return line to supply tank.
