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 fittings and adding Teflon tape followed by more sealant. This process was time consuming, messy, and failed to meet QuantumFlo’s high-quality standards.

The Solution: QuantumFlo received a sample of Hernon’s Dripstop® 940 pipe thread sealant which they applied to their threaded fittings between stainless steel and bronze substrates. Dripstop® 940 is specifically formulated to react to metal ions and cures quickly at the exclusion of oxygen for an instant seal. After applying Hernon’s Dripstop® 940, QuantumFlo saw an immediate improvement in quality results and after fully adopting Dripstop® 940, their finished systems now pass the hydro pressure test at a rate of 98%. By using Hernon’s Dripstop® 940 only, they saved time, energy and money.

Hernon technicians“We were pleasantly surprised when Hernon® technicians directed us to use only a small amount of their Dripstop® 940. We were able to significantly reduce the amount of sealant we applied to our fittings and still saw a massive gain in quality.” Said David Carrier, President & CEO, QuantumFlo. “With nearly 100 years of combined industry experience, QuantumFlo is a pioneer of variable speed pumping technology and we have become the standard of the plumbing industry worldwide. We don’t compromise on quality which is why we are so pleased to be using Hernon’s Dripstop® 940.”
