Fluid Motion Solutions has added a host of new features to its Mono EZstrip range of progressing cavity pumps. This is aimed at simplifying in-situ maintenance for wastewater sludge applications.
The smooth-profile Positive Torque Split Coupling Rod of the EZstrip pumps already alleviates potential ragging issues to reduce maintenance and assembly times.
Designed with Maintain-in-Place, EZstrip pumps only need a spanner and an Allen key for quick and easy disassembly, de-ragging and servicing. With 360o access to the coupling rod and drive shaft for easy inspection, there is now the advantage of a captive support foot. If required, the full drive-train – including rotor, stator, shaft, rod, and seal – can be removed, without physical electrical disconnection.
Available in cast iron or stainless-steel with a choice of rotor and stator materials to suit individual applications, the EZstrip range also benefits from a tie-bar-free design. EZstator clamps lock the stator securely into place, not only reducing stator removal time by over 50%, the company claimed, but improving the safety of common maintenance operations.
