Colfax Corporation, a global leader in fluid-handling solutions for critical applications, announces its new Alldur® stators, developed through the company’s Fluid Handling business platform. Alldur stators are designed specifically to meet the aftermarket replacement needs of North American wastewater treatment plants.
Stator replacement is one of the major contributors to total cost of ownership of a progressing cavity pump. The new Alldur stator material dramatically extends the service life of this major wear part and offers a rapid payback to wastewater plant operators.
“The new Alldur stators provide up to three times the service life of existing progressing cavity pump stators, stand up to dynamic loads and offer high-impact resilience,” said Todd Kierstead, Product Specialist, of Colfax Fluid Handling. “This allows operators to reduce downtime and increase maintenance intervals.”
The elastomer’s new proprietary chemical composition make Alldur stators capable of handling dynamic loads, providing high-impact resistance to mechanical wear, even when used in applications with extremely contaminated, high-solids content wastewater. This significantly reduces stator wear and helps to repel solids with little or no damage to the stator, which is designed to assume its original shape.
Alldur stators are manufactured at Colfax Fluid Handling’s Allweiler facility in Bottrop, Germany
