Pumps used by the military are refurbished after a period of service. The military require pumps to be operationally ready when pulled from stores.


Following their refurbishment they are preserved from corrosion using a mix of Mil Spec and commercial off-the shelf (COTS) materials.

In this case the pump has been protected aganist corrosion using the following components:

  • vapor capsule inside the electrical control box
  • plastabs inside junction boxes
  • high performance desiccant inside the package to absorb water
  • barrier film to Mil Spec on the outside


  • pump is preserved in the same state as it is after refurbishment
  • operational ready
  • no rework required
