Abstract

The protection of the flow-passage components of pump by using coating is an important method to increase wear resistance. This paper aims at examining abrasion resistance and cavitation erosion resistance of three typical non-metallic coating materials for pump including epoxy resin mortar, composite resin mortar and polyurethane. A wear-resistance test bench was built, using ultrasonic vibrating air eroding machine. Meanwhile, the main relative raw materials and formulas were introduced. The results indicate that: (1) The accumulated volume reduction of abrasion of composite resin mortar changes in an oblique waveform, and its abrasion resistance is better than that of epoxy resin mortar in a short period of time. The wear rate of epoxy resin mortar and composite resin mortar is higher than that of polyurethane. The total wear volume of epoxy resin mortar, composite resin mortar and polyurethane is decreased by 8.74%, 9.89% and 0.58% respectively within 30h of anti-wear test time; (2) The accumulated volume reduction of cavitation erosion of epoxy resin mortar is proportional to the time. In anti-cavitation erosion test time of 26 h, the erosion volume of composite resin mortar, polyurethane and epoxy resin mortar cavitation is reduced by 0.44%, 0.29% and 0.35%, respectively. It shows that cavitation erosion resistance of three coating materials is similar, while polyurethane materials have the best abrasion resistance.
