A major cost driver in refined product pipelines is the energy consumption of pumps and related equipment. Upgrading pumps with Vespel® CR-6100 materials for wear parts can increase pump efficiency, improve pump safety and reliability, and reduce or prevent pump seizure, vibration, and cavitation.
For NGL pipeline pumps, Vespel® CR-6100 is an ideal solution. These pumps need to handle fluids with changing vapor pressures caused by in temperature and product composition in the line. The change in vapor pressure can cause a pump which was once reliable to experience a dry running situation and potential seizure. Vespel® CR-6100 can help the pump survive these challenges, minimize damage, and keep product flowing through your pipelines.
Boulden Company has the materials you need to upgrade your pipeline pumps to DuPont™ Vespel® CR-6100 parts and components.
