Inspecting pump components designed for hydrotransport in the Oil Sands.


Castings for the Pump Industry – Hydrotransport Oil Sands

Penticton Foundry specializes in abrasion resistant alloys (ASTM A532) for the pump industry (see testimonial below). We know that our customers need durable, abrasion resistant castings that allow them to pump a wide range of fluids including abrasive slurries and dense media. One of our greatest success stories is how our innovative approach significantly improved wear performance for the hydrotransport of oil sands’ slurries.

Our design, metallurgical and casting expertise yields abrasion resistant castings and parts that are structurally superior and permit full machining prior to hardening. We ensure that these complex shaped parts are soundly made and provide the wear characteristics for any application.

All components can be designed, engineered and fully machined.  Advances in machining technology and tooling in recent years have reduced the cost of the design process, while increasing the versatility of hard chrome white iron components.

We also help our customers achieve their lead time goals by offering customized inventory programs.
