ICS-200 Ceramic Epoxy was used with Protec repair compounds to extend the service life of aging Warman® abrasive duty pumps at a mineral sands operation in western Canada.
One challenge faced by this operation was holing through to re-enforcements, typically on the elastomer impellers and parts, which led to catastrophic parts failures with chunking out of material.
ICS Wear Group drew on the company’s thorough understanding of slurry wear mechanics to find a solution which more than doubled component service life. The addition of ICS-200 Ceramic Epoxy dramatically improved the service life of both Warman® and after-market parts.
No change was made to maintenance cycles. The only change was the use of ICS-200 Ceramic Epoxy.
