Reclaiming & Cladding Polymers
Advanced, high build repair polymers for precision reclaiming,
metal filling, and high build wear cladding
Erosion and cavitation can cause damage to pump bearings, wearing rings, and seals. It can also result in excessive pump vibration. Centrifugal pump bearings are typically subjected to high axial loads, marginal lubrication and high operating temperatures and vibration – all while attempting to minimize friction. While these moving parts are engaged, foreign objects can enter, friction rises, metal loss from corrosion and debris start taxing the metal and system. Although the consumables can be replaced easily, the fixed assets, and static cast or forged parts, housing areas or casings will require a more creative method of repair, outside the realm of replacement. This calls for rehabilitation and repair to reclaim the shape and integrity of the fixed metal part – precisely where MCOR can help.
If uncontrolled, friction can result in power loss, excessive heat generation, increased vibration and /or wear, including premature bearing failure. All of these dynamics can dramatically affect the service life and reliability of bearings and pumps.
MCOR repair, reclaiming, and cladding compounds include:
- MCOR 3115 | mClad mFill
Multipurpose, general metal filler, resurfacing and restoring compound.
- MCOR 3310 | mClad Metal
A fully machinable-grade, all-metal-filled product for most ferrous applications.
- MCOR 3330 | mClad Ceramic Metal
A fully machinable-grade, all-ceramic-filled product for repairs requiring inert fillers.
Common problem areas where MCOR’s Metal Reclaiming Compounds provided a “Cold” rebuilding and repair solution:
Reformed sloppy key ways (mold-in-place)
Eroded impellers and cut-waters
Worn and cracked pump casings
