GBM Lube Pumps - Akkerman

Equipment

Akkerman Inc.

When it comes to mud/fluid mixing, what matters most is aggressive agitation, a homogeneous blend, capacity, and powerful pump flow.

Our Bentonite and Lubrication systems are designed to fully hydrate your mixtures in less time with the pumping capacities required to enhance distances. They’re used on various projects, including guided boring, microtunneling, tunneling operations, conventional auger boring, HDD, and any application involving high viscosity heavy fluid mixing.

Safety and reliability are at the forefront with each design with features like a shrouded agitator, no belts, step‐up access to the tank, a mud supply platform, an in‐line suction strainer, and tank. A simple control panel and an in‐shaft control pendant complete the package.

Features:
  • Pump water or water with mud for fluid mixing
  • Aggressive in‐tank agitator maintains a homogeneous mixture by continuous mixing, independent agitation or agitate and pump
  • Hydraulically‐driven, high pressure with relief valve
  • Pressure is adjusted to match tooling requirements
  • In‐shaft control pendant comes standard with each assembly and allows operators to vary flow and pressure as needed
  • Sized to provide enough supply for the duration of the shift
  • Easy connection to mud/fluid supply

Testimonials

Our interaction with Akkerman began on a project where we were struggling with their competition’s machine. Changing machines during a project to their machine required a leap of faith on our part. That project completed 20 years ago turned out to be successful and propelled us into 20 years of completing scores of successful micro tunnel projects throughout North America. Providing many innovations throughout this time has allowed us to mine many geology types and increase drive distances with curves to over 2500 lf. I can attest 30 years ago, technology did not exist that today allows us to complete projects efficiently and at a lower cost. Their leadership in providing technically superior AMERICAN made equipment is second to none in the world today.
