CHAP. 4: OPERATION

FORESEEN USE OF THE MACHINE
The MP7 motor pump was designed for professional use. This means that, when the machine is
delivered the operator needs to be appropriately instructed by the yard foreman or the person directly in charge.
Our product comes under the category of yard or building site machines and is used for JET GROUTING and solidification operations where water injections or cement mixes are requested,
up to 400-450 bars with a delivery of up to 500 l/min.
The motor pump, fed with a mixture of water and cement, enables, by means of an alternating 3piston movement, that the mixture is pumped under high pressure into a pipe that supplies the cement feed head and the drilling rod battery.

MOTOR PUMP MP7 720 CV

one is 3200 mm long and is to be positioned on the pump side and the other is 4200 mm long (engine side). it's possible that the container is treated with a protective paraffinic wax. This lugs are 2 couple equal.). 4 lugs are used to hoist the motor pump container. 4: OPERATION HANDLING AND POSITIONING THE MACHINE NOTE Prior to leave the factory. 4 Wash the container with a steam cleaner and detergent to remove the possible wax residue. etc. in order to protect the varnished surfaces against atmospheric agents and dirt (bugs. Having fixed the 4 lugs to the mullions of the container you must control that the container is hoisted correctly (it must hold its horizontal position). It is important that the suction pipe is regularly washed with water to prevent the cement that gets stuck to the inside walls blocks or reduces the flow through the suction and causes cavitation in the pump. since these. MOTOR PUMP MP7 720 CV 51 . It is very important to check that inside the suction pipes there are no leakages. When positioning the machine on site.CIMA GROUP CHAP. WARNING During hoisting operation. remove the protective wax from the surfaces using the proper dewaxer for paraffin supplied with the container. To remove the protective wax please act as follows: 1 Run a dewaxer soaked rag on the surface to be treated 2 Wait 5 minutes and remove the most part of the wax from the surface by means of a plastic palette knife without damaging the paint. To hoist the motor pump. would cause a volumetric loss in the performance of the pump and the suction valve would become very noisy. The suction pipes between the pump and the cement bath must be without curves. letting the air into the pipe. a lift truck and skilled personnel are needed. before positioning the container. This is so that the motor pump can be unloaded from its means of transport then positioned in the operating area. make sure that the ground is solid and that the motor pump is rested on a flat area as this gives good cross head lubrication even at slow engine speeds and stops the motor pump from sinking or moving during the pumping phases. 3 Run again the dewaxer soaked rag on the surface and remove the wax completely. never stand or pass under the motor pump. The cement tank must be placed as close as possible to the pump and the height of the suction mouth must be 300 mm higher than the pump collector. Remember that on the mullions of the container it is marked the weight of the whole machine. without bottlenecks and the inner diameter must never be less than 100 mm. In this case. salt.

CHAP. All the MP7 motor pumps must be washed with an over feed pump connected to the delivery. Furthermore connect the fittings of the cooling coil for the piston lubrication oil to the external water socket. 4: OPERATION CIMA GROUP With this is in mind you are strongly advised to connect the water suction pipe as close as possible to the cement suction mouth so that the pipe is thoroughly washed during drilling phases. 52 MOTOR PUMP MP7 720 CV .
