SMT8B series are three screw pumps ideal for heavy duty cooling and chilling applications. The extremely compact design enables to use this pump also in applications where there is no space for traditional screw pumps. SMT8B pumps are very often used for gear box lubrication, hydro power, jacking oil systems in the wind energy, industrial and mobile sectors.

One of the most important request from the industrial world is to create a better work environment, which is synonymous of better efficiency, lower cost of production and better quality of life for workers. The reduction of operation noise goes with no doubt toward that direction.

Hydraulic pumps, above all those for high pressure, entail noise and/or vibration level that are unacceptable for certain new applications. This is the main reason why Settima has designed a new gear pumps generation capable to eliminate acoustic emissions.

Parameters influencing emissions of hydraulic noise are:
- cavitation
- pressure peaks rising from trapping fluid between gear teeth
- ripple or flow pulsation

Continuum® (the low noise gear pump) is capable to eliminate these noise causes.


Internationally patented (patents approved and pending):
- the rotors profile
- the screw step
- the inner force balancing

The especially studied rotor profile does not trap any fluid volume (no encapsulation chambers).
The helical course (there is just a single point of contact between rotors) of the Continuum® rotor profile makes a gentle transmission of movement and a minimization of any pulsation. Internal hydrostatic mechanisms are put in place in order to avoid trade-off with efficiency.


Pulsation is harmful

- In Hose and Pipe design pressure pulsation is paramount; because pressure pulsation affects the hydraulic system lifetime.
- Noise is not only generated by the pumps but, in most cases, the systems generate noise by amplifying the ripple. Consequent pressure drops are a noticeable energy consumption and a reduction of overall efficiency.

Continuum® pump is the right answer to avoid all problems due to system pulsation. The special design of the internal rotors eliminates any cavitation and any pulsation, driving to no noise, long life of the pump and the systems and energy loss reduction.


The volumetric efficiency of Continuum®pumps is depending on both pressure and speed. Continuum® pumps achieve high volumetric efficiencies.

Magnetic coupling

A hermetically sealed magnetic coupling is available (as option) for all pump models (please contact SETTIMA for more info on the pump model chosen) to replace standard seals.

It is a permanent magnetic synchronous coupling able to transmit torque through magnetic forces between the internal and external rotor. Applying a magnetic coupling, the drive and the driven sides are hermetically separated. In case of critical media the magnetic coupling is a reliable seal and prevents any serious leaking.

The magnetic coupling is the containment shroud that is fixed to the driven sided power unit and separates internal and external rotor from each other. The vibration torque transmission are very low, due to the absence of mechanical connection with completely leak-proof separation of product and atmosphere.

The magnetic coupling therefore is used to ensure no media leaking or when pumps are used hazardous areas such as explosive areas.

Zero pump maintenance: there is no more the requirement to periodically check /change the sealing. The maintenance cost drops down drastically

NO leakage: there are no rotary parts sealed, but only static sealing

Component protection: the magnetic coupling also protects the motor from damages. If the pump requires a torque (power) bigger than the maximum allowed, the magnetic coupling automatically detaches the power transmission.

Magnetic coupling technical data

Max temperature: 80°C standard, up to 300°C on request
Max RPM: 3600
Inlet pressure: 16 bar standard, higher on request

About us

Company details

Settima was established in 1978, thanks to the ideas and commitment of Eng. Cagnani, who wanted to produce silent, high-technology and limited cost screw pumps.

The entrance of his sons in the firm, close to 2000, saw extending a long tradition centered on continuous improvement of manufacturing processes and constant product innovation.

In almost fourty years of history, Settima was able to achieve several records and designs of excellence, such as the introduction of helical rotor pumps (first on the global market), and numerous international patents, including the famous continuum ®, the first silent pump in the world.

The organization of Settima is constantly focused on obtaining the best allocation of resources and expertise.

More than 80 employees, experts in precision machining, are the heart of Settima manufacturing, organized in three shifts, for the best use of the production systems.

A network of 30 qualified suppliers, all certified ISO 9002 and located near production facilities, ensures the optimal flow of semi-finished products, according to the production schedules, and the possibility of continuous technical assistance.
An engineering department, equipped with advanced design tools, allows to quickly respond to the needs of developing special projects, dedicated to solve specific design needs of customers.

Settima has a constant R&D activity, which enabled the creation of innovative products, such as the Continuum® pump, a unique mechanical component, able to provide unmatched performance and silence. For the realization of this project, the original corporate structure was enlarged, giving life to a company, Settima Flow Mechanism, that made a reality the possibility of a pump combining the characteristics of gear and vane pumps with the silence of screw pumps. In 2013 Settima Flow Mechanism was incorporated to Settima Meccanica and uses the proven experience and commercial structure of Settima to develop its market, experiencing tremendous market success, as evidenced by the received awards and the growing volumes of requests.

Attention to the market, care for the detail, development of the staff are the key factors of a growth that has been able to overcome even the most critical moments of the Italian and world economy. Today Settima is a leading European manufacturer of screw pumps and has more than 1,000,000 installations worldwide.
