Corroserve has carried out a pump refurbishment for a leading petrochemicals company at a fraction of the cost of replacement.
Following a free no-obligation ‘strip and report’, which highlighted the elements of the pump and impeller that required rebuilding, replacing or cleaning, Corroserve was contracted to carry out the necessary work.
After the pump casing and impeller were stripped, they were blast cleaned to identify areas of internal pitting and erosion. Once pre-machined, the casing internals and the impeller were coated with Corroglass 600 Series, which allowed the damaged areas to be reconstructed.
The refurbished impeller was balance checked to BS6861 – g2.5, the pump casing externals coated with Plasmet ZF and Corrothane AP1 and a new shaft, sleeves and casing rings manufactured. The pump was then reassembled using new gaskets and packings.
This full pump refurbishment was completed at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new unit. The life span of the reconditioned pump, which otherwise would have been scrapped, has now been extended by at least 10 years.
