Pump Refurbishment and Improving Fluid Efficiency 

In most cases the cost of pump repairs will pay for themselves in less than 18 months.

This is why !

Deep pitting and modular growth caused by corrosion deposits will result in poor performance of your pump. It is common to find surface roughness and casting defects quickly deteriorate pump efficiency. You will find lining will benefit laminar flow, increasing fluid efficiency anywhere between 3-10% through combined mechanical and internal coating applications.

 

 

We have had some independent tests conducted. Comparing the before and after performance on hot and cold water pumps. Pumps were coated using either Ceram-chem™RP 500 or Hot-cote™RF 900

 

Results showing increase in pump efficiency
Results showing increase in pump efficiency

The results clearly indicate that power consumption is reduced, the flow rate is increased hence the improved efficiency. Imagine the costs savings in power consumption, and extended life of the asset.
Refurbishment cost of a pump is a small % compared to replacing with a new one.

Ceram-chem™ RP 500

 

Ceram-chem™RP 500 is a ceramic filled solvent free epoxy coating.   It is designed as a top coat for our anti-corrosion coating systems suitable for all types of fluid flow environments. Once fully cured it creates a low friction finish which results in proven improved efficiency.  To compliment the system is Cerpofix™RH 500 renewal compound which is designed to fill voids and deep pitting. It is fully machinable and has superior adhesion with Ceram-chem™RP 500. Suitable for environments operating up to 70°C.

 

Ceram-chem™ RU 500

Ceram-chem™ RU 500 is a solvent free epoxy Novolac. It was specially formulated to resist high temperatures, fluid flow enhancement and aggressive chemical environments. Incorporating Cerpofix™ technology it is able to withstand abrasives stresses and is extremely hardwearing. Pit filling and voids can be filled using Ceram-chem™RT500 Suitable for environments operating up to 130°c

 

Hot-cote™ RF 900

Hot-cote™RF 900 is your first choice for high temperature resistance. An extremely robust ceramic filled epoxy coating that is specially formulated for temperatures up to 220ºC in extreme chemical environments. Effective solvent free one coat system  to provides a low friction finish which results in improved efficiency and lower running costs. To compliment this system we have formulated Hot-cote™ RE 900. This will fill the voids and deep pitting if required. It is fully machinable and adheres very well to Hot-cote™ RF 900. Suitable for environments operating up to 220°C
