One of the most tested and approved gear
pumps in the world the TYRONE P16 series has atrack record for efficiency,
durability and dependability that's second to none.
One reason for its great reputation,
especially with many of America's leading OEM's, is the amount of thought
and innovation put into its design and construction.
The heart of the P16 is its unique
journal bearing configuration that gives it high speed and pressure
capabilities, and provides a solid arc of contact across the entire shaft
bearing surface. This means the shaft is completely and constantly
supported, thus reducing stress and metal fatigue to produce longer life.
This stem-to-stem support automatically provides for an overhung load
capability, without the added expense of outboard bearings.
The "outside story" of the P16 is
equally impressive. Its simple, 3-piece construction allows for easy
maintenance and servicing. And, as an example of the amount of thought
that has gone into its design, only the pumping section is made of heavy
cast-iron. The other two sections are made of aluminum to give you the
best of both worlds: toughness where you need it, and lightness for easy
handling and mounting.
