Screw pumps are positive displacement pumps and operate in a rotary manner, normally primed. The pump presented here can be used for a number of different fluids. These include any non-aggressive fluids with lubricating properties, with viscosities between 2…1500mm²/s, such as lubricating oil, vegetable oil, hydraulic fluid, glycols, polymers and emulsions. Typical applications include: lubricating diesel motors; gears; gas, steam and water turbines; and cooling and filtration circuits in large-scale machines and hydraulic systems.
The MT 182 kit forms part of the GUNT Practice Line for assembly, maintenance and repair designed for training at technical colleges and in company training centres. A close link between theory and practice is key to the learning content. The kit is ideally suited to project-based learning with a particular empasis on ‘hands-on’ work. Independent working by the students is assisted and encouraged. Learning in a small team offers a useful learning format.
MT 182 enables a typical screw pump to be assembled and maintained. Students become familiar with all the pump components and their modes of operation. The parts are clearly laid out in a toolbox. Systematic assembly and disassembly of a pump is practiced.
The accompanying material details the individual steps involved in the exercise, and provides additional information on the areas of application, mode of operation and design of the pump.
