Technology of gas-shielded robotic arc surfacing of sealing surfaces of pump impellers with flux-cored wire of ARTINIT DUR 500 grade was developed. Corrosion resistance testing of deposited metal of this type according to GOST 9.912–89 showed that it is on the level of 12Kh18N12M3TL steel. Application of flux-cored wire ARTINIT DUR 500 for surfacing these parts is envisaged by the respective standards: GOST 31901–2013 (Appendix H) and GOST 33258–2015 (Appendix B). Technology of plasma-powder surfacing of sealing surfaces of pump impellers in automatic unit PM-302 with application of powders of cobalt alloys (stellite) was also developed. A particular method of surfacing the sealing surfaces of pump impellers is selected proceeding from the conditions of their operation and economic parameters. 9 Ref., 2 Figures.
