Corrosion Resistant Coating for Submersible and Immersible Pumps

In order to understand the benefits of corrosion resistant coating. We must explore the different types of corrosion. Water pumps, submersible pumps and centrifugal water pumps all eventually get affected by corrosion. It’s virtually impossible for a pump to be immune to corrosion. With years of use on a pump, there’s a good chance it’s underperforming due to pump corrosion. Here are the top reasons for why your water pump, diaphragm pump, centrifugal pump or immersible pump is underperforming.

Top 3 reasons why your heavy duty industrial pump is underperforming.

  1. Mechanical losses form friction In bearing, worn wear rings or seal problems
  2. Leakage losses from recirculation through wear rings, seal and balancing devices
  3. Energy loses/hydraulic losses represent most of the efficiency reduction

Above just briefly describes what potentially could degrade a pump. In order to grasp the problem with your pump we should consider all different forms of corrosion and erosion.

What is pump corrosion, types of pump corrosion and what causes it?

Corrosion occurs in pumps made out of metal, stainless steel, cast iron and bronze. It is the act of materials and metals degrading. There are two main categories uniform corrosion and localized corrosion.

Uniform corrosion sometime referred to as oxidation of the entire surface is the most common form of corrosion. This type includes tarnishing, active dissolution and polishing n chemicals, anodic oxidation and passivation. Passivation alloys such as stainless steel and aluminums stabilize and prevent corrosion much better than other metals but can still suffer from bi-metallic corrosion.

Localized corrosion means just one area of the pump is corroding faster than other areas. When you have anodic and cathodic areas defined, it can still be difficult problem to solve because corrosion is either in one spot or several different areas. Localized corrosion does lead to component failure if not taken care of properly.

Mircolon Series 3300 Pump Coating System

Mircolon Series 3300 – All cast Iron pumps from Pump Solutions #1 Corporation can be coated with Tefcote™, a rust proof coating material designed to effectively resist chemical, climatic, and physical damage or effects. Tefcote™ will eliminate the iron oxide scale (rust) often associated with cast iron pumps. Tefcote™ also offers a corrosion resistant alternative to expensive nonferrous applications. Tefcote™ is applied to each component over the entire surface for corrosion protection inside and outside of pump. Using the Mircolon Series 3300, you will add years of usability while decreasing maintenance costs for repair in the future.
