It’s important to know how to extend the life of your pump. The life of the pump will vary depending on how it is used, what it is pumping and the level of maintenance but eventually it will require overhauling, rebuilding or replacing.
Pumps are an investment of your money and time and naturally you require the maximum return on your investment. You want the pump to last as long as possible.
One way of extending the life of your pump is through an application of a pump coating. Mostly this will be on the internal surfaces where the wear is taking place but in the case of say a borehole pump in a harsh environment, the external surfaces can be coated also, achieving an excellent result.
By using the ceramic epoxy compound right for the job, you can do a couple of things.
Firstly, you can rebuild badly eroded or corroded pump components. This can bring a worn component back to its original size and profile. See www.betterpumps.com.au.
Secondly, you can coat the working surfaces of a pump in good condition or even of a new pump. As the coatings applied are more durable than the pump’s original material, this will slow down the wear and tear on effected surfaces and minimize the deterioration of pump performance.
So, with the correct application of the appropriate coating, the pump’s performance can be maintained for an extended period of time. This can be an excellent investment in your pumping equipment.
