The Fortis MC Ceramic Plunger Advantages

The Fortis MC ceramic plunger is just one of many high-quality, reliable parts that TPCI produces for reciprocating pumps used in the oil, industrial manufacturing, and food processing industries. TPCI’s proprietary manufacturing process eliminates the risk of pull-apart problems that often occur with ceramic plungers, and allows us to deliver sturdy, dependable parts that last for years.

Setting them apart from the competition, TPCI Fortis MC ceramic plungers feature a unique advantage: a two-part epoxy adhesive securing the ceramic surface to the metal adapter that screws into the pump. TPCI uses a special formula to mix the adhesive and cure it for a longer period of time. No ceramic plunger is perfectly concentric for the inside diameter, but TPCI machines the shaft so that it is a perfect fit.

This proprietary process allows them to produce ceramic pump plungers of unsurpassed quality and reliability. Competitors’ plungers experience more pull-aparts than TPCI’s, as the adhesive in lower-quality plungers does not hold up over time, causing the ceramic portion to separate from the metal piece. This can shatter the barrel and damage the pump.

Not only are TPCI’s Fortis MC ceramic plungers constructed with especially resilient adhesive, but both sides of the plunger are also thoroughly cleaned before it is applied to eradicate any contamination and enhance the adhesive properties. Both of these features virtually eliminate the risk of pull-aparts.

All of TPCI’s plungers are manufactured to tolerances confirmed by an inspector. After production and inspection, TPCI products go through an additional quality assurance process to ensure the metal and inside of the plunger are clean and ready for immediate use.

Simply put, TPCI takes the time to build a better product. While many manufacturers’ ceramic components appear rough and unfinished, the TPCI team builds each individual part with care; all parts leave the facility with a clean, polished finish.
