PSQ / TGP Round Bars

Pump Shaft Quality / Turned Ground Polished Bars

Pump shafts require a high level of accuracy with respect to mechanical properties, dimensional tolerances and straightness. Close dimensional tolerances and precision straightness ensure that the bars have minimum vibration through the length of the each bar and have minimum wear during the life span of the shaft. At ALOK we produce the finest quality of Pump Shaft materials in grades like 1045, 416, 431, 430F, 304L and 316L.

The well-experienced team at ALOK ensures that only those bars that pass stringent quality checks are dispatched from the factory. Careful handling and packing of the bars on the shop floor ensure that the bars are not damaged during transit from our factory to the customer’s warehouse.
