A major international automotive OEM was experiencing premature and unpredictable failures with their pumps that provided insulating compound directly to the assembly line, costing them time and money. Partnering with a premiere machinery rebuilder, Wyatt Seal performed a complete analysis of the pump components, maintenance practices, and failure mode. Per our suggestions, several hard part upgrades and a complete revision to the pump vee packing assembly was undertaken. Both materials and geometry were upgraded and improved.
The results have been outstanding! Pump performance has been extended 6x and is more predictable than ever. The automotive OEM has specified this new design and is investigating other applications where Wyatt Seal Inc. can provide extended MTBF.
