A true mainstay of heavy manufacturing, the Fuller-Kinyon® (F-K) Pump has reached a 100-year milestone, passing the test of time amidst a century of unprecedented transformation. And its future today looks just as bright as its history.
– by FLSmidth Inc, USA
With the first prototype built in 1918, the Fuller-Kinyon® (F-K) Pump became the standard conveyor of the cement industry in the 1920s, establishing a solid foundation for its value to the industry. It profoundly changed the layout of cement plants constructed from about 1930 through to the 1980s. Today, the F-K Pump continues to be a major system conveyor in the cement industry, handling Portland cement, dry cement raw material or raw meal, precipitator dust, pulverised coal and clinker dust. It is also occasionally used to convey alternative fuels for burning in a rotary kiln. FLSmidth currently sells about 90 new F-K Pumps every year to cement and mineral production plants worldwide.
