White Iron Rotor Assembly

Reverse engineered to meet or exceed OEM specifications in float cell applications

OEM design of a steel rotor used in a float cell, coated in neoprene. Average life approx. 6 months

Float Cell

Float Cell assembly converted to high chrome, replacing all neoprene. Expected life of 2-4 years, currently passing the 6 month mark.

Internal rotor was machined, threaded, and dynamically balanced without the use of mild steel inserts.

Walls and floors outfitted with Chrome Carbide Overlay (CCO) plate

White Iron Pipe Spool Insert

24” ID pipe spool, where the first 36” of neoprene was removed and replaced with an 800BHN cast HCWI insert. 

Projected to outwear current vendor by approximately 20% 

Supplied at a cost LOWER than leading competition
