This bearing material has an excellent abrasive resistance and coefficient of thermal expansion, equal to stainless steel. CREACOMP® LTE-1 is a proprietary thermoplastic material with non-metallic bearing holder assembly, developed for use as bushing in pumps, handling abrasive media from -50°C up to +180°C continuous service temperature into pump applications. ...
Material technology for pumps
CREACOMP® PEEK/carbon fiber composites have excellent mechanical properties and high temperature resistance. Compared to metallic materials, PEEK/carbon fiber composites have excellent corrosion, high wear resistance and good tribological properties.
The excellent dry running properties of CREACOMP® PEEK/carbon fiber composites reduce the risk of catastrophic pump failure and protect the rotor, impeller and housing in case of contact with the rotation partner. The reduction of running clearances improves the efficiency of the pump, reduces energy consumption and thus leads to significant cost savings in pump operation.
