Plenty Magmo sugar pumps are designed principally to handle high viscosity abrasive sugar products, such as Molasses, Massecuite and Magma.
- The bearing and sealing arrangement has been designed to deal with the wear and leakage problems associated with high viscosity abrasive duties.
- The inner portion forms a general divider between the liquid in the pump and the grease in the bearing. The outer portion, which has longitudinal grooves, forms the bearing.
- Greasing the bearing is a flushing operation and consists of introducing fresh grease at the outer end of the bearing and displacing contaminated grease through a drain at the inner end.
- The drain valve is simply interlocked to the grease nipple to ensure that both are open during greasing.
