Pumping 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
- control elements,
- bearing sleeves,
- plain bearings,
- and hubs,
which are exposed to abrasive media.
