Project Description – The customer has been having problems with damage to their water pump shafts. 

Application - Repair Industrial Water Pump Shaft

Industry - General Industry: Machinery

ContractorCreative Maintenance Solutions, Inc.

Problem - The customer has been having problems with damage to the Water Pump shafts. 

Solution - We cleaned the shaft with brake cleaner and put the shaft in the lathe and prepped it by cutting rough threads into the shaft.  We cleaned the surface off again then mixed up the Belzona 1111 Super Metal.  We taped off the edges for the repair and then applied the repair material while the shaft was rotating at a slow speed.  We made sure to put enough material on the shaft to have extra to mill off.  We let the shaft cure for 24 hours before putting it on the lathe.  The shaft was cut down to the proper diameter to finish the repair.  Final sanding was done to polish the Super metal.  The part was repaired and ready for service.
