An equivalent was matched to replace a Viking Gear Pump as a direct dimensional replacement. The unit was designed and will be used to pump tallow at various temperatures.
The client was faced with an increase in demand, for a new installation. The customer wanted to reduce downtime when repairing gear pumps. Upon the success of a trial in another application, the customer decided to trust a Tuthill Gear Pump on their new line.
Tuthill’s engineering of a back pull out design gear pump makes it extremely easy to service the pump in full in place. The seal flush design included as standard maintains the integrity of the mechanical seal in arduous applications. The temperature rating was another critical factor, carbon bushings allow the pump to sustain higher variants in temperature.
Overall the pump is stronger, the gears are constructed from ductile iron and supported by oversized shafts.
My expectations have been exceeded, while we have improved the installation on-site with our new lines the Tuthill pumps are very reliable and have so far been very easy to service… over the next few years we look forward to transitioning over to this product. Thanks to the team at All Pumps!
