Wedge Pins Incorporated on Putzmeister Trailer-Mounted TKB Series of Hydraulic Ball Valve PumpsProven Effective Design Makes Clean-Out Easier
For an easier clean-out process, convenient wedge pins are now incorporated on all trailer-mounted TKB Series of hydraulic ball valve pumps from Putzmeister America.
Wedge pins will replace the existing nut-and-bolt design that secure the primary manifold (with hopper atop) to the secondary manifold (with surge chamber atop), as currently found on a Thom-Katt® TKB pump. By simply tapping the wedge pin with a hammer, it is effortlessly removed and the hinged manifold simply pushed to the side. This method, combined with the unique adjustable primary balls, allow a quicker, easier and more convenient clean-out process.
In countless applications over the years, this wedge pin design has proven itself highly effective during clean-out on other Putzmeister products, including truck-mounted concrete boom pumps and trailer-mounted P30 mechanical pumps. As a result, all new TKB orders with shipment this fall will have this more efficient design installed.
