The WBC pump’s patented design incorporates the latest hydraulic and wear technologies for heavy duty, high pressure applications. Its primary service is in ore transport lines that are subject to sudden pressure spikes.
The pump shell is designed to virtually eliminate bending moments and stresses that cause a structural failure during a pressure surge. Non-wearing, ribbed suction and hub plates assist in containing surges, commonly referred to as water hammer. The WBC pump design is augmented by the use of rugged Gasite® alloys for superior abrasion resistance.
