New abrasive liquid pump offers longer service life

November 14, 2003
Three hardened material options are now offered for high-wear stationary components on abrasive liquid pumps. New material options include the proprietary VitekĀ®-hardened cast iron, Ausstempered ductile iron and tungsten carbide coated cast iron. Pumps have always had hard rotating parts available, which provided long service life on tough applications. Now with the pump casing and head available in hard materials too, the company has been able to extend the service life of its abrasive liquid pumps by more than 50 percent, even on highly abrasive liquids.
