Composite Pump Components
Composite components can be used for a wide range of rotating equipment components.
Non-metallic composite wear components can significantly increase the life of bearings, bushings, wear rings, and similar pump and rotating equipment components. The reduced friction of a non-metallic component results in longer component life, fewer mechanical failures, and increased time in service for the machine.
At Boulden Company, we supply and manufacture premium composite wear components that prolong the life of your pumps and other rotating machines, saving you time and money. Our experienced professionals will identify the composite non-metallic pump components that are best suited to your pump’s needs, effectively eliminating the frustrations that accompany a downed pump.
