Constantly abraded, the paddles of the grit chambers are prone to wear and abrasion by the debris in the raw sewage. Another problem is the build up of grease on the paddles and the spindle. These issues can be prevented by using LOCTITE brushable ceramic. The smooth, low friction surface will resist abrasion and grease build up.
Highly abrasive grit damages pump impellers and housings. Grease can build up on the mixing paddles, and grit can damage the mixing mechanisms.
Following repair with metal rebuilding epoxies, LOCTITE Brushable Ceramic wearing compounds can protect the pump parts and grit chamber mixers against the damaging effects of grit abrasion.
The parts can be used for longer and withstand mechanical attack.
