Al Huda Corrosion Treatment, our partners in Qatar, took delivery of a severely damaged sea water pump in need of complete refurbishment and a protective lining. Al Huda’s client; a specialist pump company described the pump as having severe corrosion and erosion damage and metal loss, all of which needed to be addressed.
Abrasive blast cleaning revealed the true extent of the damage and Al Huda’s technicians used Corrofill E and Plasmet HTE at a DFT of 1200μm to repair and line the pump internals. The external required a combination of weld repairs, composite lamination to add strength and Corrofill E before a final top coat of Plasmet ZF was applied to offer all round protection.
The shaft was cleaned and reinstalled in the pump along with a new impeller and new mechanical seals, before a pressure test to 1.5 times its service operating pressure to ensure the quality of the work completed.
The client was extremely pleased with the quality of workmanship as well as the significant cost saving achieved when compared to purchasing a new pump.
