Pumps and Pump Parts

Although a range of products are kept in stock, we have an excellent working relationship with most of the leading pump manufacturers, thus enabling us to satisfy customer requirements on OEM spares.   

We are also in the fortunate position to supply new pumps from various manufacturers at competitive prices.   


Our range of Products available to Clients include the following:    

  •  o   New Mechanical seals 
  •  o   Cartridge unit Mechanical seals 
  •  o   Gland Packing 
  •  o   Reconditioned Mechanical seals 
  •  o   Pump spares 
  •  o   Reconditioned Wear parts 
  •  o   Manufactured spares for discontinued and obsolete pumps 
  •  o   New pumps   

In addition to new and reconditioned mechanical seals we also have the ability to manufacture parts on obsolete and discontinued pumps. This would include casting of products should the need arise.

Common Elastomers

Nitrile

Nitrile rubber (NBR) is the general term for Acrylonitrile Butadiene Copolymer and there are a number of common variations of nitrile compounds. NBR is one of the most commonly used sealing elastomers due to its resistance to petroleum-based fuels and lubricants, silicone greases, hydraulic fluids, water and alcohols. It provides a good balance of desirable working properties including low compression set, high tensile strength, and high abrasion resistance. It is also priced relatively low.


Temperature range:


Standard Low Temp: -35 ˚C

Standard High Temp: 120 ˚C

Viton

Viton rubber, a specific fluoroelastomer polymer (FKM), was introduced into the aerospace industry in 1957 to fulfil its needs for a high-performance elastomer. Following its introduction, the usage of Viton spread quickly to other industries including the automotive, appliance, chemical, and fluid power industries thanks to its natural resistance to both fuel and oil. Viton has a strong reputation as a high-performance rubber in high temperatures, ozone, weather, oxygen, mineral oils, hydraulic fluids, aromatics and many organic solvents and chemicals.


Temperature range:


Standard Low Temp: -26˚C

Standard High Temp: 232˚C

EPDM

Ethylene Propylene Rubber (EPR) is a Copolymer of ethylene and propylene. EPDM is a terpolymer or ethylene and propylene with a small amount of a third monomer to permit vulcanisation with Sulphur. This rubber is useful for a number of industries, such as automobile assembly and water purification systems, due to its excellent resistance to ozone, sunlight and weathering. It also has very good flexibility at low temperatures, good chemical resistance and electrical insulation property.


Temperature range:

Standard Low Temp: -55˚C

Standard High Temp: 125˚C
