The only thing standing between you and your goal is the bullshit story you keep telling yourself as to why you can't achieve it.
The wear ring is often used as a shielding measure to prevent the wear and tear of both the housing and impellers. The high abrasive wear of soft rubber in the wear ring collects sand and dust particles and enhances the lift of the machinery.
Rubber wear rings consist of metal inserts for stiffness during installation. Usually, wear rings are advised in sandy areas where higher abrasion is expected and spare parts can be quickly replaced.
Pump wear rings are considered as essentials as they have a significant effect on pump reliability, performance and safety.
Many of the centrifugal pump designs have removable rotary wear rings on the impeller and stationary wear rings inside the housing (case wear rings). The wear rings fulfil three primary purposes:
The wear ring clearance affects pump discharge pressure, flow, performance, energy consumption, vibration and coalescence. The use of wear rings with decreased clearance has a positive effect on both of these aspects.
Long-term, large-scale field trials have shown that wear rings can increase pump life by up to 100%, minimise friction and reduce seal leakage. Field experiments and pump test stands have also shown that decreased clearance will increase pump performance anywhere from 2 to 5 percent for traditional process pumps. The additional advantages of the wear ring pump include:
