Gear pump assembly
Vol. 22 #3, Dec. 1995

When assembling an extrusion gear pump, be sure to use molycote or some other equivalent lubricant.

Since the pump will rely on this lubricant until sufficient polymer lubrication film is available, failure to do this could result in pump failure due to a loss of lubrication.
