Diamond America recently completed the design and remanufacture of a competitor’s extruder gearbox for a manufacturing firm in the petro-chemical catalyst industry. The company was experiencing high degrees of wear to the gearbox’s bronze bushings due to the fact that the catalyst they were processing was passing through the seals and corroding the bronze.

Diamond America’s solution was to use double seals and replace the bronze bushings with roller bearings, which are non-corrosive.
