Fybroc

Fluid Engineering is the proud distributor of Fybroc fiberglass centrifugal pumps for all of Alabama and the following counties in Florida: Escambia, Santa Rosa, Okaloosa, Walton, Holmes, Washington, Jackson, Bay, Calhoun, Gulf, and Liberty.


Fybroc manufactures ANSI process, self-priming and sealless mag-drive horizontal end-suction centrifugal pumps as well as vertical centrifugal sump pumps and cantilever sump pumps.

The Fybroc Advantage lies in its 35-year commitment to nonmetallic pumps and a continual spirit of innovation worthy of its title as the first manufacturer of fiberglass-reinforced pumps. Fybroc is the first manufacturer to adopt the resin transfer molding (RTM) method for production of its fiberglass-reinforced castings.

The major advantage of this process is that it allows for controlled placement of long strand fiberglass reinforcement in high stress areas providing components with excellent physical properties, allowing the design of thinner-walled structures, permitting the use of nearly pure resin systems for optimum corrosion resistance.

Ordinary compression molding methods, however, utilize chopped glass random reinforcement that provides comparatively lower strength characteristics. In addition, the inherent physical properties of this technique and the exothermic properties of the highest quality resins force the inclusion of large amounts of clay filler in the bulk molding compound. These fillers detract form the corrosion resistance of the base resin and certainly add no strength.

While the compression molding approach sacrifices both corrosion resistance and strength, the RTM method optimizes both.

Fybroc pumps include many other innovations that are industry firsts. Contact your Fluid Engineering sales or applications engineer today to learn more Fybroc fiberglass pumps.
