A DECADE OF RESEARCH

For optimal results in performance and durability under various conditions we use a variety of materials to make the EcoVizor. Over the years we have accumulated a comprehensive database of the friction, wear and environment resistance of different materials in the EcoVizor design. This experience allows us to make the best choice of materials for each individual pump after careful assessment of its future work environment.

TOOL STEEL

Due to its distinctive hardness, resistance to abrasion and resistance to deformation at elevated temperatures combined with availability and competitive price, tool steel is the material of choice for general-purpose EcoVizor pumps. Depending on application, steel parts are coated or surface-treated to improve aesthetic appearance and avoid corrosion.

STAINLESS STEEL

Corrosion resistance and antibacterial properties make stainless steel the ideal material for equipment used in food processing and chemical industries. We also use stainless steel for explosion-proof EcoVizor models. Since stainless steel does not require coating to withstand the environment, the inox EcoVizor is shipped with brushed or polished finish.

BRASS

We use brass as a replacement for ferrous metals in special applications. Despite its relative softness, brass is spark-proof, offers low friction and high resistance to corrosion. The primary use of brass parts is in pumps designed for water management systems, seawater applications, and chemically aggressive environments.

ALUMINIUM

Aluminium can be used where weight is the primary concern, primarily in the aerospace industry and other areas of transportation.

ALLOYS
COMPOSITES
CERMETS

Occasionally, the intended application of an EcoVizor warrants the use of special alloys and composites in our pumps. The most prominent of those are the tungsten carbide and graphite parts used in our seal assemblies to reduce friction and improve durability.

PLASTICS

Plastics, primarily UHMWPE are used to make laboratory equipment and small industrial models for their see-through properties and easy machinability.
