Pump refurbishment completed

Published:  31 July, 2015

A leading petrochemicals company had serious concerns about a badly deteriorated HSC pump. Prior to entering into the costly process of scrapping and replacing with new, it was sent to a leading corrosion protection and engineering services contractor Corroserve for a free no-obligation ‘Strip & Report’.

The subsequent report highlighted the elements of the pump and impeller that required rebuilding, replacing or cleaning and as a result of this report, Corroserve was contracted to proceed with the work. Having stripped the pump casing and impeller they were blast cleaned to identify areas of serious 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 rebuilt.

Corroserve says this full pump refurbishment was completed at a fraction of the cost of purchasing a new unit.
