Greene Tweed Highlights Dry-Run-Resistant Pump Wear Part Solution at Turbomachinery & Pumps Symposium 2019
Composite with almost universal chemical compatibility to replace metallic wear parts for centrifugal pumps to be showcased at Booth 3136
Kulpsville, PA – Greene Tweed, a leading global manufacturer of high-performance seals, thermoplastics, composites, and engineered components, announces it will showcase its dry-run-resistant wear part solution and capabilities in large seal manufacturing at the Turbomachinery & Pumps Symposium 2019, held September 10th – 12th at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, TX, at Booth 3136.
Greene Tweed will be highlighting WR®650, a next-generation PFA composite with superior dry run characteristics designed to replace metallic wear parts in centrifugal pumps and any other application where wear resistance is required. Also on display will be AR®HT and AR®1, thermoplastic materials developed for specific applications.
Greene Tweed’s WR®650 delivers high chemical compatibility, excellent wear characteristics, and operability from subzero to 500°F (260°C). The advanced material with 3D carbon-fiber architecture provides a coefficient of thermal expansion comparable to steel over a wide range of temperatures, offering a constant running clearance, no interference, and no efficiency drop.
The WR®650 solution may be applied as stationary wear parts in vertical, horizontal, single, and multistage centrifugal pumps. Greene Tweed products can be used to improve reliability and efficiency in refineries, chemical plants, power plants, pipelines, and water treatment plants. WR®650 is available in a broad range of stock shapes, ranging from ID1” to OD12.”
Greene Tweed will also display its capabilities in large seal manufacturing, including the G-T® Ring, a unique seal configuration for centrifugal compressors that enhances resistance to rapid gas decompression (RGD) at higher pressure compared to traditional elastomeric o-rings.
