Close-Coupled Positive Displacement Pumps

October 11, 2011
The Moyno® 1000 close-coupled positive displacement pump provides greater versatility and performance advantages over other types of positive displacements pumps, according to the manufacturer. The compact, close-coupled configuration is ideal where space is a premium. It is designed for a variety of services including shear sensitive chemical feeds, adhesives, lime, polymer metering, slurries and viscous crude oil transfer applications. The pin-type universal joint is sealed and lubricated, providing long life with minimum maintenance. A key feature of the Moyno 1000 Close-coupled Pump is a two-piece drive shaft which allows easy assembly, maintenance and mechanical seal access. This drive shaft configuration eliminates the need for complete pump disassembly when servicing the mechanical seal.
