Success Story: Nascote Industries - Paint Pumps
- In February 1996, this major automotive supplier had their first paint pump shaft and cylinder treated with Saturn's rod-form ceramic coating. Previously the OEM shafts, cylinders and seal/packings stacks were lasting only 3 or 4 months.
- 3 months after installation, the parts were inspected and showed no signs of wear to pump shaft OD, the cylinder ID or any of the seals/packings. Additional pumps were treated.
- After one year of monitoring and successful use, it was determined that pump inspections could reduced by 50%.
- Today, 6 years later, not one of Saturn's many coated shafts or cylinders have shown the slightest
evidence of wear and the seals/packings are lasting over twice as long.
