Numerous case studies over the last 30 years have shown how ceramic enhanced coatings not only protect pumps from abrasion and corrosion, but improve energy efficiency. The glass-like finish of ceramic coatings is ten times smoother than polished stainless steel, and increases efficiency by 2% to 14%. According to a continuing study by the Monroe County Water Authority (MCWA) in Rochester, New York, conventional pump repairs, i.e., mechanical refurbishment and sandblasting, achieve, on average, a 50% return back to manufacturers’ specifications. Sandblasting combined with coating the internal pump casing restores the remaining 50%. This study documents the effects of tuberculation on pump performance, which has not been previously studied. With nearly 20% of all electricity consumed by pumps, power plant managers and engineers will not want to miss this presentation on how to reduce their utility bill, improve reliability, lower their lifecycle cost and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
