Cutting-Edge Components: Rerated Impeller

Hydro Parts Solutions has just produced three impellers for a rerate project at Hydro’s Rocky Mountain service center in Denver, CO. Hydro Global Engineering determined the new hydraulic design for the rerated pump, which required modifications to the casing and new impellers.

The end user chose to have the new impellers manufactured out of CA6NM using investment casting, which provides a smoother surface finish to slightly increase the impeller efficiency. Hydro Parts Solutions drove the project from casting package design through final machining, with the impellers being cast and finish-machined within 6 weeks.
