Lets Talk About Pumps

End suction pump interally lined
The process of pumping fluids and slurries puts equipment under constant strain and can result in several deterioration mechanisms including erosion, corrosion, abrasion and cavitation.  These issues are some of the main causes of pump deterioration and wear, leading to efficiency losses, increased power consumption and overall higher asset lifetime running costs.  If not addressed in time, the integrity of the component may be jeopardized, ultimately leading to equipment failure.  To learn more, click the link "Enhance the Efficiency".

Solutions for Pumps

Approximately 70 to 90 percent of the energy used in surface water treatment is for pumping. Pumps use mechanical forces to move gases, liquids, or slurries from one place to another; this fluid handling accounts for the largest use of energy worldwide; however, the efficiency in pumps decreases after years in service. The main problem is increased turbulence, caused by the detrimental effects of erosion-corrosion.

Repair and Protect Chiller Units

Galvanic corrosion is a major battle for building owners and managers to maintain the integrity of chillers in HVAC systems. Caused by the dissimilar construction metals, it can lead to severe metal loss on chiller tube sheets, casings, end cover flange faces and division bars... To read more, click the link below.
