Viking Pump now offers three hardened material options for high-wear stationary components on its abrasive liquid pumps. The new material options include the proprietary Vitek(R)-hardened cast iron, Austempered ductile iron and tungsten carbide coated cast iron. Viking's pumps have always had hard rotating parts available, which provided long service life on tough applications. Now, with the pump casing and head available in hard materials, the company has been able to extend the service life of its abrasive liquid pumps by more than 50%, even on highly abrasive liquids.
