DESIGNING AND PROTECTING PUMP SYSTEMS

Many manufacturers offer pumps in standard materials that can be shipped quick at a minimal cost.  For some applications, this may be an attractive option.  For many applications in corrosive and/or erosive environments, a carefully planned design that considers the environment and requirements of the pump may reduce costs and fallout later. Factors to consider…

Alloy K500 Nickel Copper

  Nickel Copper alloys are known to have excellent corrosion resistance in certain media and good physical properties. When most think of Nickel Copper alloys they think “Monel5”, and when they think “Monel5” they are more than likely thinking of Alloy 400. But there is another Nickel Copper alloy, one that with a slightly different chemistry…
