Located at a wastewater treatment facility in Romania, the shaft of this impeller was badly worn after years in service.
The facility’s engineers purchased a new shaft/impeller for $8,500 and were going to discard the old shaft/impeller. ENECON Romania suggested to the engineers that they repair the old shaft instead of discarding it.
The new impeller sits on the shelf after 6 months of the repaired shaft being in service. The cost to repair this shaft was under $1,000.
