Westcan’s Improvements for Industrial Pump Technology Can Reduce Customers’ Costs

Pump technology improvements have been greatly strengthened through a combination of metallurgical developments in materials, and design, by Westcan. This applies not only to shafts, sleeves and impellers, but also within foundries and steel suppliers who now have improved casting and raw material quality in many of the pump components supplied.

Impeller Repair Program

Impellers, previously discarded after being in service for normal duty cycles, then were replaced with new – are now repaired by us with better welding technology and procedures that surpass the ‘life performance’ of just a short time ago.

In fact, Westcan’s Impeller Program, was started at the request of customers who were benefiting in huge savings from the Recovery and Repairs we had done to their impellers. Now it assists many of our clients save millions of dollars in annual operating costs, which also helps them improve their competitiveness in the global market.

With the dramatic increase in the cost of metals, especially 316SS, 2205SS, Nickel and Molybdenum based alloys, the importance of ‘life extension’ of recyclable parts by repair is more important than ever to reducing costs.

Pump Database

Accumulated and well documented over the last 50 years, Westcan has an extensive database of pumps and component parts of all OEM makes and models that is second to none.

Westcan’s Pump Database has grown significantly since its inception in 1964. With more than 50 OEM Pump Manufacturers detailed, and in excess of 110 models, we have created a database of over 25,000 parts from the smallest washer to complete pumps – supplied in any and all materials.

Quality Assurance and ISO Certified
