Abrasive products may wear out the stainless steel parts of a circumferential piston pump during its service life. If such wear causes the tight clearances between the body, cover and rotors to open up, the pump will no longer be able to work efficiently, which usually means it has to be replaced – unless it is reconditioned by Ampco Pumps.
The remanufacturing program provided by the Krones subsidiary offers an affordable, sustainable alternative to buying a new pump. In the remanufacturing process, Ampco can re-machine a slightly larger cavity in the worn body and cover and then mate them with slightly larger rotors to achieve “like new” tolerances and performance. In other words: The worn-out pump sent to Ampco for a makeover can now no longer be distinguished from a new one, both in terms of visual appearance and hydraulic efficiency.
