A poultry and meat processor was having issues with several competing PD pumps that were in service. The processor was experiencing premature wear issues and shaft failures when pumping meat from a de-boning machine.
Ampco’s solution; a complete re-manufacture of these under-performing pumps. Ampco replaces all internal components during remanufacturing; one piece 17-4 shafts, alloy 88 rotors, helical gears, bearings and more.
Ampco Pumps also suggested that the pumps be upgraded with a special protective coating to reduce wear from the de-boning operation.
The customer was so pleased with the performance of the first re-manufactured pump that they have sent 3 additional pumps to Ampco. The special coating used by Ampco has greatly reduced the premature wear on the internal pump housing.
