Advanced polymers for pump applications
Our dures® brand of proprietary thermoplastic polymer composites materials have proven success in improved pump reliability, increased efficiency, reduced maintenance costs, increased mean time between repair, and reduced equipment down time.
dures materials were developed specifically for manufacture of bushings, bearings, shaft sleeves, and wear rings for pumps handling a wide range of liquids including those that contain solid matter. The dures range of materials enables pump operators much tighter clearances – improving reliability, enhancing efficiency, and savings in life cycle costs.
With 1000’s of successful applications, major OEMs are experiencing long-term results from using dures materials
Many OEMs are experiencing the dures® advantage:
- Outstanding performance
- Durable wear characteristics
- Excellent abrasive resistance
- Dry run capability
- Superior vibration dampening with negligible hydrolysis or swell
Materials Selected for Peak Performance
Using a broad range of materials approved for API 610 centrifugal pumps, EGC pump components can improve reliability, efficiency, and pump performance.
During long operating cycles, the metallic mating parts of your pump can sustain damage – resulting in costly repairs and delays. As the abrasive surfaces brush past one another, critical components experience fatigue and even product failure due to wear, galling, and seizing of pump equipment.
