GRAPHALLOY Provides Advantages in Pump Bushings and Wear Rings

GRAPHALLOY®, a graphite/metal alloy, is used extensively for pump bushings and wear rings.  It offers two key advantages for pumping applications:

1. GRAPHALLOY enables pumps that run dry, flash, or handle extremely low viscosity fluids to survive without damage.  Numerous case histories and pump manufacturer test results confirm that GRAPHALLOY performs where plastics are unable to stand up and metal parts seize disastrously.

2. GRAPHALLOY enables rings and bushings to be designed with tighter clearances which can improve efficiency, increase output, reduce vibration, throttle seal cavities, or act as a seal backup.  GRAPHALLOY is non galling and dimensionally stable and enables pumps to operate at tight fits without the risk of metal-on-metal rubs or seizure.
