Gear pumps are commonly used to move fluids. This gear pump, located on an oil tanker, was used to transport gasoline, fuel oil and other petroleum products. When a previous coating began to fail, a stable solution was necessary to bring the pump back in service.
To begin repair, all loose debris had been removed and the surface was cleaned. All damaged areas were fully repaired and resurfaced with CeramAlloy using CeramAlloy CP+AC and CeramAlloy CL+AC. These products provide outstanding protection for almost any fluid flow component. The transport company’s engineers were completely satisfied with the successful, much needed long-term repair.
