Vespel® for Pumps
One customer installed Vespel® CR-6100 wear rings, throat bushings, and pressure reducing bushings in two multistage gasoline shipping pumps. This conversion resulted in a 7% efficiency gain and a 90% reduction of overall vibration levels. The pumps have been in service over four years without failure, where the previous MTBR was 12 months.
Vespel® CR-6100 wear components have been successfully used in thousands of centrifugal pumps in major refineries, chemical plants, power plants, pipeline terminals, and municipal water utilities.
