Durit: Increasing wear protection, reducing maintenance costs

Thursday, June 25th, 2015 von admin

DuritImage_2015_04Pumping of abrasive slurry or chemical reagents demand for maximum efficiency and work pace increasing wear of the applied components and thus all associated maintenance costs in pump technology as well. More and more frequently, seal and packing rings of pumps are made of ttungsten carbide – a sinter material. Additional fields of application for tungsten carbide components in pump engineering include

  • rotors,
  • control elements,
  • bearing sleeves,
  • plain bearings,
  • and hubs,

which are exposed to abrasive media.

Waukesha: Tilt pad thrust bearings for up to 300 °C

Tuesday, October 14th, 2014 von admin

WB_HidraxHTThe new Hidrax™ HT thrust bearings are developed for high-temperature applications in electric submersible pumps. These pad bearings can sustain unit loads of 8 MPa (1160 psi) at oil bath temperatures up to 300°C (572°F).

Technological advances in steam-assisted gravity drainage are increasing operating temperatures and placing increased demands on the thrust bearings located in the motor seal/protector section of the electric submersible pumps string.
