Fuller®-Kinyon™ Screw Pump
- High performance
- Low maintenance
- Maximum efficiency
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 and areas of this screw, along with other parts of the pump in direct contact with the material to be conveyed, are made of hardened, wearresistant material and special hard surfacing where required. 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.
The materials to be conveyed enter the hopper by gravity and are advanced through the barrel by the screw. The material is compacted as it is advanced. Its density is further increased in the space between the terminal flight of the screw and the face of the non-return valve to form a seal against the transport line pressure, thus preventing blowback. The material then enters the discharge body, is fluidized by compressed air, and is conveyed into the transport line.
Since the invention of the Fuller-Kinyon pump in 1926, FLSmidth has delivered products and technology integral to the growth of worldwide industries such as cement, power, chemicals and minerals. The original Fuller-Kinyon pump began a long line of innovative products engineered for proven reliability and dependable performance. Thousands of Fuller-Kinyon pumps sold worldwide testify 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 MFuller®-Kinyon Pumps are heavy-duty, screw-type pneumatic pumps. These pump systems are most commonly used to convey dry, freeflowing, 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 4500 feet (1371 meters) are not uncommon.
