Vesconite Hilube pump applications
10 Jul 2020

Vesconite Hilube has been used for decades in a wide range of specialized pump bearing applications.

The material thrives in water, keeping to machined sizes without swelling and with zero delamination.

Other advantages are that it does not corrode, and helps prevent the corrosion between metal components especially in salt water; is resistant to oils and fuels; and is easy to machine, fit and remove – and prolongs shaft life.

In addition, it allows dry startup for up to 1 minute.

Vesconite Hilube is recommended for most pump bearing applications, such as: 

  • Vertical turbine pumps:
    Casing wear rings, top stuffing box bearings, lineshaft / spider bearings, bowl bearings and inlet bearings.

  • Vertical spindle pumps (sump pumps):
    Casing wear rings, lineshaft / spider bearings and inlet bearings.

  • Mixed flow pumps:
    Casing wear rings, lineshaft / spider bearings and inlet bearings.

  • Multi-stage surface pumps:
    Neck ring liners and diffuser bearings.

  • Submersible pumps:
    Neck ring liners, casing wear rings and diffuser bearings.

  • Split-case and centrifugal pumps:
    Casing wear rings and water flingers / deflectors.

  • Diaphragm pumps:
    Valve spools.

  • Gear pumps:
    Support bearings (external and internal).

  • Rotary vacuum vane pumps / exhausters:
    Vanes.
