Hernon pipe sealant immediately improves the quality for water pump manufacturer QuantumFlo

Hernon pipe sealant immediately improves the quality for water pump manufacturer QuantumFlo.

The Problem: One of the largest and best-known manufacturers of variable speed water pumping systems in the US, QuantumFlo, was facing leakage issues during final tests. Only 75% of finished systems were passing hydro pressure tests during the final inspection. Failing systems would be sent back to production stages to be resealed resulting in loss of time and money to re-work. Originally, QuantumFlo was applying coatings of pipe sealant on threaded...

How To Make Better Oil Seals

Oil seals are an integral part of rotary applications. They ensure consistent and reliable performance of mechanical equipment such as gearboxes and hydraulic cylinders as well as in other power transmission and automotive applications. They do this by closing spaces between stationary and moving components of an engine which helps stop lubricant from leaking. They also prevent harmful contaminants, such as other fluids or dirt from entering machinery. Traditional Problems...
