The AR® (Abrasion Resistant) line offers superior abrasion resistance and is less harsh to mating hardware compared to competing materials. The AR® line extends the service life of pumps and reduces downtime for pumps handling media-containing abrasives such as sand, coal ash, and other solids, which can wreak havoc in pumps.
Greene Tweed’s AR® family of materials can operate in subzero temperatures up to 121°C (250°F). The AR® 1 material is filled PTFE, while AR® HT is a blend of PTFE and PEEK.
AR® 1 provides general abrasion resistance and is particularly suitable for vertical pumps, while AR® HT is suitable for high-temperature, abrasive-resistant applications, such as vertical water feed pumps in nuclear facilities.
