Tools to help you improve your pump operability, reliability, and efficiency
Our favorite material recently passed a milestone. The first pump ever fitted with Vespel® CR-6100 was upgraded 20+ years ago in November 1997.
The first pump was a vertically suspended condensate pump at a refinery in California. The pump was notorious for running dry, and it had failed once or twice per year for as long as the maintenance records went back. An engineer at the refinery “found” Vespel® CR-6100 and decided to put it to the test on the condensate pump. The pump survived repeated episodes of running dry and subsequently ran for many years without failure.
Since then, over 10,000 pumps across the globe have been upgraded with Vespel® CR-6100.
