A cylinder block for piston pumps was originally being made from sand castings. The manufacturer was experiencing material quality issues, including porosity, which caused them to look for a different solution for their component needs.
Dura-Bar 100-70-03, due to our continuous casting process, has a dense fine-grained
microstructure free from porosity and other tool wearing inclusions typically found in sand
castings. Our Zero Defect Guarantee proves that we stand by our material.
Dura-Bar improved the material quality and wear resistance of the cylinder block, therefore
reducing the total part cost.
