All 3D and 6D positive displacement pumps are hydraulically balanced to cancel axial and radial thrust loads due to discharge pressure. The design features replaceable rotor housings, a single mechanical seal, and external grease-packed ball bearings. They are all repairable with minor and major repair kits, and available in the Applied Process Equipment regional Arizona warehouse as needed with special arrangement.
