Corrosion of Nonleaded Pump Impeller Alloys in Chlorinated Potable Water - 4658
Completion Year Research Value Research Manager Principal Investigator Contractor
2018 $60,000.00 Mr. Jonathan Cuppett Marc Edwards Virginia Polytechnic Institute & State University
This project collected corrosion performance data for current metal alloys recommended for pump impellers. This project also quantified the performance of several new and emerging lead-free alloys that are attempting to break into the municipal water market. This data will allow water utilities to make better-informed pump design decisions. The recommendations of this project provide guidance to pump impeller end users and could refine existing alloy manufacturing methods to develop more lasting materials for these applications. Tailored Collaboration Partner: San Jose Water Company. Published in 2018.
