Time to Read: 1m 36s
Inefficient pumps are a drain on your system, as they can increase energy costs, CO2 emissions, and overall life cycle costs. There are many fixes for pump efficiency problems, but one of the simplest and most effective methods is to reduce the pump’s running clearance by replacing its existing components with those manufactured from Vespel® CR-6100 material.
Improve Pump Efficiency with DuPont Vespel® CR-6100Vespel® CR-6100 is a unique composite material developed by DuPont. Made from Teflon® PFA resin and long carbon fibers, it can be machined into almost any shape. It exhibits numerous beneficial physical characteristics that make it an ideal solution for pump efficiency challenges. These include, among others:
- Wide operational temperature range (-238°F/-200°C to 500°F/260°C)
