Delrin® vs. Sustakon®

Posted by Sam Kelton | January 21, 2020

Delrin® and Sustakon® are both semi-crystalline thermoplastics that are used in many industries today. In the reciprocating plunger pump world, these thermoplastics are used in the disc or valve seat of the plate valve, spherical valve, or Durabla® valve and can play a key role in the reliability, durability and longevity of these valves. Since the valves are exposed to a variety of often harsh environments, it’s important to understand which thermoplastic is better suited for each application. Let’s take a closer look at them individually, and then we’ll do the apple to apple test.

Selecting the Right Pump Valve for Reciprocating Pumps

Posted by Sam Kelton | October 24, 2019

When selecting a reciprocating pump valve, it’s important to understand many critical details about the pumping application, including the pressure rating and temperature, viscosity, and composition of the fluid being pumped. Is the fluid corrosive? Will it contain abrasive solids? If so, how large might the particulates be? For example, in some mining applications, it makes more sense to select a pump valve that is engineered to withstand small solids and other abrasive materials.

Common Causes of Cavitation in Pumps

Posted by Sam Kelton | May 16, 2017

Frequently occurring in pumping applications, cavitation creates bubbles or vapor cavities in a liquid as a result of rapid changes in pressure. These liquid-free voids typically form in low-pressure zones and can burst when subjected to high pressures, sending powerful shockwaves throughout the entire application.
