In 1923, Homer A. Thrush committed himself to developing superior hot water heating systems. The Thrush Company Inc. Water Circulator was first introduced to the growing hydronics industry in 1928. This innovation brought the advantages of hot water heat to virtually every home and business. Mr. Thrush pioneered many innovations that have contributed to the comfort and well being of mankind..
Established in 1997, Thrush Co. Inc., which was named after Homer A. Thrush in commemoration of his innovative spirit, has been recognized as a leading pioneer in the hydronics industry.
Thrush Co. Inc., remains as dedicated to the hydronics industry as Homer A. Thrush was in 1923.
Our longevity, leadership, and reputation for superior quality testify to this commitment. We manufacture a full line of pumps, heat exchangers, valves, fittings, and accessories for residential, commercial, and industrial systems.
- Does Thrush offer the Hot-Pak in a horizontal design?
Yes. An example of this layout can be viewed in the current Thrush Hot-Pak brochure (PDF - 2.29MB) and the Hot-Pak product page. This layout is also available in a duplex option with two Hot-Paks on one frame. Drawings and dimensions are available upon request.Back to Top
- Does Thrush have heat exchangers in stock?
Yes. Thrush does stock some heat exchangers. All of the standard model Straitube heat exchangers are in stock. Models of popular u-tubes are also stocked in standard design construction.Back to Top
- Does Thrush offer heat exchangers made to custom dimensions?
Yes. Thrush can build to virtually any customer's needs and dimensions. We can design and build complete drop-in replacements for most u-tube and fixed tube applications. As standard we build to ASME section VIII, Division 1 standards and can also accommodate TEMA standards as well. Keep in mind that some dimensions or requirements may conflict with ASME codes and some compromises may be required.Back to Top
- Does Thrush offer replacement tube bundles for heat exchangers made by another manufacturer or to custom dimensions?
Yes. Thrush can manufacture replacement tube bundles for virtually any type or brand of u-tube heat exchanger. In some cases field measurements are required to insure proper fitment.(Download the replacement tube bundle dimension and data sheet.) Thrush offers various material and tube options to meet the most demanding operating requirements. Contact your local Thrush representative today to learn more.Back to Top
- What size gasket does my Thrush heat exchanger use?
It depends on whether it is a u-tube or a stock Straitube. The u-tube gaskets are based on nominal diameter of the heat exchanger and not the diameter of the gasket. For an example, a 12" u-tube uses a 12" heat exchanger gasket. This gasket is the same diameter as the raised face of an ANSI flange. A Straitube gasket is model specific and should be chosen based on the actual model of the heat exchanger. For example a model 320 Straitube uses and model 260, 320, and 380 replacement gasket. Straitubes also have front and rear specific gaskets. Be sure to specify if it is for the front or the return head. Back to Top
- Can Thrush supply a replacement heat exchanger head or channel with custom dimensions?
Yes. Thrush can build to virtually any customer's needs and dimensions. We can design and build complete drop-in replacements for most designs. As standard we build to ASME section VIII, Division 1 standards and can also accommodate TEMA standards as well. Keep in mind that some dimensions or requirements may conflict with ASME codes and some compromises may be required.Back to Top
- When do I need to use a double wall heat exchanger?
Double wall heat exchangers are design to keep the working fluids from cross contaminating if a tube wears or fails. Each tube is actually a tube within a tube and there are two tubesheets. The tubes are sealed to the tubesheet that it is in contact with and a gap between the tubesheets lets a leaking tube drip between the tubesheets to signal a tube failure. Many plumbing codes require this for heat exchangers being used to heat domestic water. Check your local codes to see if it affects your application.Back to Top
- Do I need to lubricate or oil my Thrush circulator?
It depends on the type of circulator and bearing used in the circulator bracket assembly. All sleeve bearing circulators require oil lubrication. Sleeve bearing bracket assemblies have a flip up oil fill cap on them. Check the operating instructions for your specific pump model to be sure. Don't forget to check the motor as well. Sleeve bearing motors have similar oil cups located on top of them as well. (Place instructions or link to the location on the website of operation and maintenance manuals here).Back to Top
- Can my Thrush circulator or pump be installed with the shaft in the vertical position?
Only if it is a vertical circulator or pump. All Thrush circulators or pumps that may be installed with the shaft in a vertical position have a "V" for "Vertical" in their model designation. Example models: V, 22V, GTV, TV2g, ect.Back to Top
- Where can I get price and availability on Thrush products?
You can get price and availability through your local Thrush representative or they may direct you to a stocking distributor in your area. Representative LocatorBack to Top

Aar-O-Vent now has US Patent
Oct 26, 2012
The Patented Aar-O-Vent® Has ‘The Best’ and Possibly 'The Only' 3rd Party Test Results
The Aar-O-V® by Thrush Co., Inc. is proven to be the most efficient air and dirt separator on the market. After third-party testing by an independent laboratory, the Aar-O-Vent® was found to consistently remove greater than 99.7% of the dissolved oxygen content in a closed piping system and can remove up to 99% of the dirt particles in the 17-65 micron size range. The high rates of air and dirt removal by the Aar-O-Vent® will virtually stop corrosion in piping systems and eliminate heat transfer and numerous pumping problems.
Now patented under US Patent No: 8,177,975, the Aar-O-Vent® is recognized as high performance, unique, and accredited equipment in the air elimination and dirt separation industry. Not only is it the most efficient in the market, the Aar-O-Vent® comes standard with ASME Stamped Section VIII, Division I shell, stainless steel coalescing medium, sight glasses, removable bottom, non-existent pressure drop, vacuum resistant air vent, and is proudly made in the USA. Further, all models up to 8" are in stock for immediate delivery.
