On 2003 Audoli&Bertola, already FM Approved Fire-Pump Manufacturer since 1993, became the Division of Gruppo Aturia S.p.A appointed to design and manufacture Fire Pump Packages and Systems in accordance to European and International Standards.
After the integration with Gruppo Aturia, Audoli&Bertola Fire-Fighting Division further developed the Horizontal Split Case Pump series based on Rotos experience also FM Approved Fire-Pump Manufacturer since 1983.
Today Audoli&Bertola is the sole Italian FM Approved Fire-Pump Manufacturer for Vertical Turbine and Horizontal Split-Case pumps and with its high-flow pump series (from 500 upto 5000 USGPM) has consolidated its experience in Off-shore, Oil&Gas, Petrochemical, Chemical, Power-Gen and Industrial sectors.
The continuous collaboration with FM Approval grants the high quality of our products, with their routine schedule shop surveys. Packages and systems are tested in our Italian workshop which allow clients to verify performance and operation before shipment.
Thanks to the wealth of experience acquired with the Guinard Group, ROTOS operates in sectors involving extremely heavy-duty services that require high-tech pumps compliant with international standards required for such applications.
Pumps manufactured in compliance with the API 610, ISO 2858 and ISO 5199 standards find their natural application in chemical and petrochemical plants, as well as in oil refineries.
API 685 and ISO 2858 magnetic drive pumps are used for applications that require top reliability and safety to pump hazardous chemical products (toxic, flammable).
Liquefied gases and volatile liquids can be conveyed with “barrel” pump versions.
For other special sectors, such as geothermics, reverse osmosis, desalination, off-shore, cryogenic fluids, ROTOS’ range of
pumps is suited to meet any specific application requirement.
The installation of submersible electric pumps for the past 60 years allowed Gruppo Aturia to acquire a wealth of application experience in a range of sectors. Submersible electric pumps, designed to lift water from wells, have replaced vertical axis pumps. By using diversified materials such as bronze, stainless steel and Duplex, today they are successfully used for heavy-duty applications that require great reliability, such as the Industry, Off-shore infrastructures, Mining and Naval sectors.
Using pumps submersible in special vertical or horizontal cylindrical tanks allows to design systems to increase pressure by reducing space and operating noise compared with traditional solutions with surface pumps. To offer Costumers hydraulic features with the best performances, the wide capacity and head range is covered with more than five hundred types of pumpsets.
In recent years Aturia introduced a range of submersible motors suitable for hot water by adopting new design solutions.
Gruppo Aturia offers a wide range of surface pumps that meet the needs of a range of top manufacturing sectors. Monobloc pumps are used in the civil sector for water supply, heating and air-conditioning purposes. Single-stage pumps and split case pumps are used for pumping systems in water systems and fire-fighting services and in the clean-water industry when large capacities and limited heads are required.
As well as for pumping stations, multistage pumps are also used for artificial snowing, reverse osmosis and for more sophisticated services such as boiler feeding. Vertical turbine pumps are used in recirculation systems for industrial water, power plants, steel mills, in drainage systems and in fish-farming sites.
