Case Study – Submersible Pump protected against effluent environment in food manufacturing plant

Protection for Submerged Pump 

A Verderhus screw channel submersible pump required corrosion protection due to service in an aggressive environment. Subject to constant submersion in effluent produced at a food processing plant the pump was showing signs of corrosion on the external surfaces.

Corroserve recommended that the pump be abrasive blasted to Sa2½, and that a specified a surface profile of 50μm be achieved. The external surface of the pump was then coated with Polyglass VEF to a DFT of 1250μm.

Polyglass VEF is suitable for immersion environments where superior resistance to chemical attack is required within the full pH range. It also has excellent resistance to demineralised water and good resistance to many solvents.

The specialist coating will provide excellent ongoing corrosion protection for the pump and will ensure an extended service life in such an aggressive environment.
