It features a series of finger mechanisms mounted on two counter-rotating shafts. Positioned above the pump''s auger feed, this bridge breaker device prevents the accumulation of material in the throat of the pump. The bridge breaker is independently driven for flexibility in controlling pump and bridge breaker speed to meet specific application requirements. The 2000 Model G3 Pump features Moyno''s crown gear-type universal joint — the heaviest duty drive train configuration available in the industry. It is capable of accommodating exceptionally high torsional and thrust loads. Patented joint seals effectively protect the gear joints from pumpage contamination. The Moyno 2000 Model G3 Pump offers flow rates to 400 gpm and pressure capabilities to 350 psi.
