The work involved: fabricating replacement pump dome covers, rebuilding the guide vanes, grit blasting the pump bodies to standard Sa 2.5, then applying Corroglass 200 and finally a coating of Fluiglide.
The combined use of Corroglass 200 and Fluiglide offers dual benefits. The system not only reduces fuel consumption by achieving notable increases in overall efficiency levels, but also provides an effective corrosion barrier, preventing early fall-off in performance due to nodular growth and surface corrosion.
The Fluiglide coating system makes it possible to increase the effective life of a jet pump operation by between 4 and 5 years. Because severe operating conditions mean that erosion and cavitation problems are always present, it is vital that pumps be constantly maintained. In many cases, the cost of pump replacement is far greater than refurbishment with Corrocoat.
