PES 107 XL for Reinforcement of Impellers with Erosion
In days past, this much damage to a pump part would end up with a trip to the scrap yard.
However, with breakthroughs in polymeric technology, we can refurbish parts using materials that don’t corrode or erode as easily as cast or carbon steels. Plant Equipment and Services offers our Polymeric Engineered Solutions products, along with know-how, to make these repairs.
Application of PES 107 XL and Reinforcement Fabric
The erosion was so severe in this example that forming new threads was necessary, as well as coating bolts with 2 coats of a release agent. In addition, we mixed PES 107 XL and forced it into cavity.
Then, we had to screw treated bolts back down and applied more product. Lastly, we applied reinforcing fabric in addition to more PES 107 XL to build up this area.
Rebuilding Eroded Guide Vanes
This job is achievable by rebuilding eroded guide vanes using extended life PES 107 XL and layers of reinforcing fabrics.
Vane erosion on the end is more obvious.
Rebuilding Eroded Areas
This is an example of areas we rebuilt with PES 107 XL and reinforcing fabric.
