EXAMPLE 8: Fix Broken Cleanout Piston
The cleanout piston in this Gusmer high-pressure mix head broke and had to be replaced.
What we did:
- Disassembled, cleaned and inspected the mix head.
- Manufactured a new cleanout piston.
- Resized the mixhead block piston chamber to match the new piston.
- Reassembled the mix head with new seals.
- Hydraulically tested the mixing head to ensure that the seals held pressure and the new piston operated correctly.
