Coating Pump Impellers for Longer Service Life

It's a rough environment for pump impellers! Impeller Coatings


Even if you're pumping fresh water, there's going to be some amounts of grit and debris. Obviously, if you are pumping waste-water, the impeller is going to wear even faster.

TigerTek can coat your impellers with a ceramic, or sprayed coating

to greatly extend the life of your pump.

Ask Darryl

"How much motor shaft run-out is acceptable?" Shaft Runout

If the shaft on your electric motor appears to be "wobbling", the shaft may be bent, or the motor bearings may be failing. Place a dial indicator at the tip of the shaft to check the run-out.

NEMA standards allow 0.002" shaft extension run-out for shafts 0.1875' to 1.625"; and 0.003" for shafts over 1.625".

As a good practice, it is suggested to limit shaft runout to no more than 0.002" for shafts rotating above 2500 rpm.
