Fuller-Kinyon Pump

April 3, 2013

Introduced in 1926, the Fuller-Kinyon (FK) pump technology provides lower power consumption, lower maintenance needs, and increased efficiency, flexibility, and reliability over other pneumatic systems. The FK pump is ideal for conveying fine powders without risk of blowback. A material seal is formed when product is compacted in the barrel and forced against the counterweighted flapper valve preventing convey-air leakage back through the screw. Only one moving part means less maintenance and high reliability in the most demanding environments. The FK Pump operates with line pressures up to 30 psig. Parts can be replaced without removing the pump from service. Recent technological improvements on the FK pump include the use of high-wear pump screws, and the pneumatic flap controller for optimization of throughput of the system. FLSmidth is ISO 9001 certified since 1995.
