Seamless Changeover Cartridge Seal
No machining is needed to change the
Fristam FKL from a single mechanical
to a double mechanical or O-ring seal
arrangement in the field. The same
cartridge* is used for both the single
and double mechanical seal.

CIP without
Performance Loss
The FKL is the first close tolerance pump that can be
cleaned-in-place without losing any performance.

Oil Bath Extends Bearing Life
Fristam’s FKL Series oil bath gearbox design simplifies
and reduces maintenance. The oil bath extends bearing
life, eliminates the need for bearing grease and grease
clean-out, and reduces oil change-out to only every
4,000 hours of operation.

Split Gearbox Makes Assembly Easy
Currently available on FKL models 15 and 20, a split
gearbox design simplifies the maintenance, disassembly
and assembly of the pump’s gearbox. Shaft assemblies
can be easily removed to save time.
