Better Uptime, Low Maintenance

Are you looking to improve uptime without reducing the life of your engineered components? Greene Tweed’s AR® (Abrasion Resistant) line is designed to protect centrifugal pump systems from sand, coal ash, and other solids. AR® components can operate in temperatures from subzero up to 121°C (250°F).

AR® 1 provides general abrasion resistance typically used in vertical pumps, while AR® HT is more suited to high-temperature, abrasive-resistant applications like vertical water feed pumps in nuclear facilities.

For a detailed look at AR® capabilities, explore our Thermoplastic Composite Chemical Compatibility guide.

Features and Benefits
