Positive-displacement pumps

October 26, 2005




Fristam's FKL series high-performance, positive-displacement pumps are available with stainless steel rotors to handle a range of products. The pump's tight clearances provide better efficiencies and gentler handling of shear-sensitive products than comparable rotary lobe pumps, says the company. The FKL is CIP-able with no performance loss and is designed for ease of maintenance. Its oil bath gearbox uses no bearing grease and requires oil change-out every 4,000 hours.
