The Scamont FXG pump is a smaller class of pump that operates on the basis of double action technology within the fluid end.

This pump is ideally suited for applications that require less volume and lower pressures. The Scamont FXG is firmly established as the pump of choice in the early stages of mining development projects when space and mobility are key requirements. The FXG is also widely used on drilling rigs.

Recommended Motor Size: 30 kW
Larger motors can be installed however maximum pressure cannot be exceeded

Max Recommended Pressure: 6.3MPa

Recommended Crank Speed: 80 RPM
Speeds can be altered by changing the pulleys. Greater speeds result in greater flow which requires more power. Contact a Scamont representative before attempting to change flow rates

Recommend NPSH: 1m
This is measured from the fluid surface level to the centre line of the pump. Suction lines longer than 6m will result in a greater NPSHR. Please contact a Scamont representative to assist. Negative suction heads are possible when pump is properly primed, contact Scamont representative for assistance.

Max Particle Size: 8mm
Use a mesh screen to remove any particle which is larger than 8mm. This mesh must be cleaned regularly to avoid suction problems

Pump Weight: 1500 kg
This is complete with motor and base frame. Pump without motor and base frame weighs 1150 kg

Pump Accessories:
Scamont offers a full range of accessores for the FXG pump. This includes and is not limited to:

Non Return Valves (Installed in order to limit slip flow on discharge valve)
Shear Relief Valves (necessary in every installation to limit max. pressure)
Plug Valves (used at start-up to obtain operating speed with load)
Accumulators and Air-chambers (used to obtain steady flow in discharge line)
Valve Seat Pullers (used to remove valve seats)
Starter Panel (Designed to be used with the FXG pump, details obtainable from Scamont representative)

Material of Construction

Scamont Engineering can alter the materials of construction for any application including mud and acid water.


The five different sized pistons are interchangeable to provide for varying capacities and pressures.
