Designed for emptying or storage tanks or RTU tanks processed in batches.
The pumping rate will vary with the viscosity and head pressure of the glue being pumped (see specifications). Glue is fed into the ‘snail,’ an impeller provides for high flow rate, with outflow at the top of the snail.
The Pump has an access cover for maintenance in place or the impeller housing may be removed, leaving the motor in place, and the snail connected to piping. Maintenance is rare, but after long use seals need replacement, after very long use the impeller may need replacement.
Users with oil lubricated pumps kept forgetting to change the oil. The Holte Glue Pump is water lubricated. Connect it to your standard plant or city water line and it stays automatically lubricated (small amount of water enters glue).
The pump is sealed so it does not leak under normal operation and it can operate in wet, cold, or hot environments. It does not contain a packing and will keep running even if flooded.
