Fuel Cell Coolant Pumps

Barber-Nichols designs and produces custom cooling pumps for fuel cells used in aerospace or other specialty applications. These compact pumps are typically hermetically sealed with canned motors if the fluid cannot be in contact with the motor stator. The simple design philosophy usually incorporates the motor rotor and pump impeller on the same shaft with pumped fluid compatible bearings. The goal for customized designs is for maximum efficiency and reliability in the smallest volume possible.
