Venting the seal chamberVenting the seal chamberThe seal chamber has a separate vent hole. This allows the pump to be vented easily and correctly during startup.
Wear reducing surface treatmentWear reducing surface treatmentA special heat treatment of the pump housing minimizes friction and wear.
Optimal cooling and lubricationOptimal cooling and lubricationThe application specific design of the balancing cylinder ensures proper cooling and lubrication of the sealing surfaces of the mechanical seals.
Self-purgingSelf-purgingVenting between the positive pressure side and the negative pressure side directly depends on the mechanical seal. In this way, it’s ensured that the air buffer through the medium in the vent line can be eliminated, even for vertical installation.

KRAL K Series Screw Pumps

The most sold KRAL pump

Universal use up to 16 bar
K series pumps are universal screw pumps, making them the most sold KRAL pump. The pump has a housing made from nodular cast iron. They are approved for use on board ships. In addition, they are equipped with sealed external bearings that are pre-lubricated for their lifetime so they are not stressed by the material being pumped and require no maintenance.

How the K series screw pump fits into the KRAL product program

The screw pump is available with DIN flanges in an inline configuration, and the KFT series screw pump is available with DIN flanges at the top. Various installation methods are possible for flange-mounting, pedestal and base screw pumps.

 

Advantages of three screw pumps

Compared to other types of pumps, KRAL screw pumps offer high capacity without taking up much space. This applies in particular at high differential pressure. The screw pumps are self-priming, with low pulsation delivery and can be easily regulated. The single screw  pumps, single stations and double stations are extremely compact. All K series screw pumps have an internal safety valve.

 

Stop coupling damage

With some liquids, residue can build up, which may cause the pump to fail. A typical spot for residue to build up is at the mechanical seal. The residue damages the ball bearing, which runs hot, melts the elastomeric ring and damages the coupling. With the K series screw pump, there is a weep hole next to the mechanical seal, to prevent the fluid from collecting and building up as residue.

 

KRAL offers the advanced quality of SiC mechanical seals, which contain graphite, as a solid lubricant to reduce the coefficient of friction in dry running conditions. The O rings with high fluorine content are suitable for higher temperatures and are chemically stable. The K series screw pump offers innovative seal concepts. A proven selection of radial rotary shaft seals, mechanical seals and a hermetically sealed magnetic coupling are available as standard. A robust and compact design rounds off the profile.
