I think you are right about Sulzer. I remember hearing that when I was on hold. We do some work with Crown Pumps. It was disappointing when Crown was moved or bought out or whatever.
This thread just grows and grows, great.
Are oil lube pump still legal in your area? We still use them, but I am surprised.
Since this thread is just all over the place I have anther question. This last season we had several Goulds turbines that were just hammered. The funny part is they were all shipped out the same year (around 1998) and they all had about 7500 hours on them. These pumps were hammered way beyond our expectation for that age of pump. There was no amount of ceramic coating and brass rings that would have brought these pumps back around. The thing that made us wonder was that they were all the same age. Have any of you experienced this with Goulds bowls of that age?
