Universal Parts ImageA stator and rotor, from Mono’s Universal Parts range, was installed into a progressing cavity pump in order to test the integrity of the Mono parts against OEM parts.

Two Widethroat pumps, one installed with the OEM stator and the other with the Mono Universal Parts stator and rotor, were set up side by side to pump very abrasive and arduous sludge cake seven meters to either a storage tank or a trailer via large bore pipework.

Martyn Dillon, Catchment Manager for Kelda Water, which is the operation and maintenance partner for Welsh Water, commented: “We installed the Mono Universal Parts to provide a direct comparison against our current supplier’s parts. The duties were identical and the numbers of hours run were all logged and checked on a real time basis.
“Over and above the performance of the OEM parts, which has now been replaced, the Mono parts are still going strong after an extra 500 hours, with no drop off in performance. As well as performing better, Mono’s pricing is in the region of 30% less expensive than the OEM part.

“We are very happy with the results of the stator and rotor from Mono’s Universal Parts range and we soon hope to be holding consignment stock of these parts.”
