FMP™ Farrel Melt Pump

Available from FARREL POMINI

The FMP™ provides melt pressurization with minimal temperature increase and great efficiency due to a positive displacement feature, minimal back flow and limited energy dissipation. It is connected directly to the finishing reactor flange (for “hot melt” discharge) or to a FARREL POMINI Continuous Mixer (FCM™) for granular or powder reactor discharge. The Side Discharge FMP™ does not alter the rheological properties of the polymer, assuring consistency in physical characteristics.

Key Features Include:

•Custom designed inlet flange of the pump housing distributes the polymer melt over two intermeshing gears
•Tangential feed pockets force the polymer melt into the tooth cavities and the intermeshing, high precision gears carry the polymer melt along the periphery of the housing bores
•Where the gears intermesh, the polymer is squeezed from the gear tooth cavities. Because of close tolerances, a high volumetric efficiency can be maintained over wide ranges of pressure and temperature
•Double helical gears for pulse free operation
•For standard polymer finishing line applications, the FMP™ employs a single drive shaft connected to a variable speed motor and gearbox. With this arrangement, the driven gear shaft turns the idler gear in the pump housing
•For high viscosity applications both shafts are driven
