Die Pumpe kann zu Wartungszwecken herausgedreht werden
Explanation: I think this is the right meaning, the pump may be turned out, but it is still held on a tray or something, so that you get access to it for maintenance purposes (Wartungszwecke). There is no proper word in German, you have to describe it.
