Pump Shaft Quality Stainless Steel Bars
Precision shafting for use in pumps requires an extremely high degree of exactitude. When a shaft does not meet the requirements of an application, equipment fails to function as expected, costing the operator both time and money while the problems are corrected. The use of steel bars that are pump shaft quality will give you the peace of mind that the part has been machined to the most exacting standards, and that your equipment will benefit from longer life and decreased down time.
What is A Pump Shaft Quality Bar?
Pump Shaft Quality (PSQ) refers to the fact that a shaft has been turned, then ground and polished, and is suitable for use in the rotating industries. Grinding helps to achieve high diametrical tolerances and reduces the amount of wear and tear on the shaft, while providing it with more controlled qualities. Each shaft is also straightened in order to minimize vibrations that may occur throughout the length of the shaft.
Whether you use our stainless steel bars in shaft or other applications, you can be sure that it has been machined to the highest quality specifications for straightness and diameter.
