Fuller®-Kinyon Kompact pumps require only a low-pressure, low-velocity air supply to efficiently meet its large throughput capacity.
Material to be discharged from a hopper bottom rail car enters the pump hopper through a boot lift rail car connection by gravity and is advanced through the barrel by a dynamically balanced impeller screw which is driven through a V-belt drive arrangement with an overhead mounted drive motor.
As the material advances through the barrel, it is compacted by the decreasing pitch of the screw flights. It is further compacted by by the space between the terminal flight of the screw and the discharge check valve disc to create the material seal. (This seal serves as the air lock to prevent the conveying air from blowing back through the barrel.)
The material then enters the mixing chamber, where it is fluidized by compressed air introduced through air nozzles. From there, the material and air mixture enter the transport pipe.
