Wow—Now That’s a Big Pump - On Site Machining a 96" Pump Bore
Eight Foot Diameter Pump Bore--That's a Nice Pump Bore
One of our faithful Wisconsin Utility Power Plant customers recently hired us to machine a 2” wide, 96” diameter pump sealing face, which we handled with our typical pose and grace. We are readily equipped to handle large diameter on-site machining pump faces, stay rings, head covers and other enormous ID machining projects to 37 foot swing—now that’s some swing—444” inches of pure swinging. The photos show the damaged pump face, the setup and machining of the pump bore sealing face.
Below is what the face looked like before we machined it.
