Meeting the corrosion challenge

Published:  01 August, 2014

Sarum Hydraulics, Salisbury based specialist manufacturer of Micropac hydraulic hand pumps reports it has been working with offshore wind turbine hydraulic manufacturers to combat harsh maritime environments. The company says it has developed expertise to fight corrosion on critical hydraulic components and can see wider application than just wind turbine hydraulics.

“Don’t risk components seizing up by the time they come to be used” says John Foster, MD of Sarum Hydraulics. “If you are using commercial hydraulic components, you can paint or coat but inevitably are left with problems on moving parts such as spindles, mechanisms and actuators.”

“Our 316 stainless pumps have an enviable reputation for long term reliability and corrosion resistance in offshore and sub-sea applications.”

“Where you cannot manufacture in 316 stainless, we offer mainstream corrosion protection plus well engineered solutions using the right materials and finishes in the right area”

“The throw away pump, seized in a matter of weeks is no longer an issue.”
