Cement Feeding Systems are constructed of mild and structural steel, and mounted on a base. FS pumps are equipped with pedestal blocks that support a pump screw which helps to 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, wear-resistant 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 FS 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.
It is the most versatile and speedy method of transferring bulk material from one point to another within a defined area.
