LONGER RUN TIMES, INCREASED EFFICIENCY, LOWER ENERGY CONSUMPTION, REPAIRABLE
Components subjected to dynamic and environmental forces benefit from Chrome’s unique High Hardness and Low Coefficient of Friction. Hard Chrome is ideal when trying to extend the life of a new part or salvage worn Pony Rods and Plungers. In both cases CHROME CUTS COST. Industrial Chromium is one of the most popular coatings used by engineers to improve equipment performance and increase the life of a part. A chrome plated part also has the added benefit of being Repairable.
HARD CHROME IS THE MOST UNIQUE AND DIVERSE METAL FINISH COATING IN THE INDUSTRY
- High Hardness – RC 70-72 – Spray Metal RC 56-58
- Very Good Wear Resistance.
- Lowest Coefficient of Friction.
- High Melting Point – 1907 Celsius – 3464 Fahrenheit
- Extremely High Corrosion Resistance.
- Expect to see Longer Run Times, Lower Packing temp, Longer Packing Life , Longer Seal Life and Less Energy Consumption.
CHROME IS SUPERIOR TO SPRAY METAL
Chrome is HARD and SLICK. Spray is hard, but NOT slick. Because of Chrome’s unique combination of being both hard and slick, Chrome will Outperform spray metal in high friction, galling, seizing environments.
Chrome does all that Spray Does…PLUS it has the added benefit of having the lowest coefficient of friction that cannot be matched by spray metal.
Pony Rods and Plungers that have been Chromed can be Replated Several Times, giving a much longer life than the One Time use of the spray metal counterparts.
