(Material Handling Pump, FK Pump, Screw Pump)
The original Fuller-Kinyon pump, invented in 1926, began a long line of innovative products engineered for proven reliability and dependable performance.
Fuller-Kinyon pumps are well-known for their:
- Heavy-duty construction
- Ease of maintenance
- Design simplicity
- Cost effectiveness
- Ability to handle high capacities
- Versatility and flexibility
- Fuel efficiency / low power consumption
The Type M Fuller-Kinyon Pumps are heavy-duty, screw-type pneumatic pumps. These pump systems are most commonly used to convey dry, free-flowing, pulverized materials from grinding mills, transfer materials from silo to silo, transfer dust from collectors, and load and unload railcars, ships and barges. The materials are conveyed literally anywhere a pipeline can be run and to any number of delivery points. Distances of up to 4,500 feet (~1,375 meters) are not uncommon.
Fuller-Kinyon Type M Pumps are constructed of cast iron and steel, and mounted on a cast iron base. Type M pumps are equipped with ball bearings that support a pump screw at both ends to help provide a smooth, balanced operation. The screw is dynamically balanced. Areas of the screw, and other parts of the pump that are in direct contact with the material to be conveyed, are made of hardened, wear-resistant material and special hard surfacing. The screw is directly coupled to the driving motor but can be v-belt driven.
Standard equipment on Type M pumps includes a pressurized seal and bearing assembly that extends the service life of the discharge seals by preventing the material being handled from entering the bearing area. Each pump system includes the pump, drive motor and compressed air source.
