Powerful Pump Gear Joint
According to Moyno®, the unique crowned- gear universal joint drive-train configuration of its 2000 Progressing Cavity Pump offers exceptional torque and control and the versatility for fluid-handling applications ranging from shear-sensitive chemicals to difficult-to-process slurries and sludges. Grease-lubricated, these gear joints run at 180 F, far cooler than oil-lubricated units. Patented seals effectively protect the joints from pumpage contamination. The rear gear-joint location reduces the radial load on the drive shaft and bearings and requires minimal pump disassembly to service.

Certification For A ‘Green’ Workforce
Targeting one of the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. workforce, the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) has joined with the Purdue University Technical Assistance Program (TAP) to launch a Green Manufacturing Specialist Certificate Program. SME developed the outcome assessment; Purdue TAP developed the extensive training program. These components have been designed to work together or independently, creating what the partners characterize as “a highly flexible workforce development solution.” SME’s outcome assessment can be used by individual practitioners or organizations to measure current knowledge levels and identify areas where training may be needed. Training can be provided by Purdue TAP or other qualified resource(s), such as SME’s online Tooling U. Trainees can then choose to sit for the certification exam.
