Vesconite Hilube performs in challenging Nile river conditions
21 Oct 2019

A Turkish OEM that supplied a Nile River project with one of its pumps that had been fitted with Vesconite Hilube polymer components in late 2018 reports that the line shaft bushings continue to operate well.

The OEM uses Vesconite Hilube in many of its most challenging projects, and this is why it elected to use the polymer bushing material in a project to pump river water from the Nile River.

The project is associated with abrasive water with a large proportion of sand particles, which hard-wearing Vesconite Hilube would be ideal for, says Vesconite Bearings technical sales representative Phillip de Villiers.

In addition, since Vesconite Hilube is chemically inert and does not react with mild acid or alkaline chemicals, it would be useful in the Nile which, while it has acceptable water quality, is known to be polluted with agricultural, industrial and household waste, he comments.
