Established in 1947, Brecks International, Inc. manufactures and distributes a wide range of fishing lures from its plant in Sherbrooke, Quebec. Their products consist of high-quality fishing lures plated in 24k gold and genuine silver. A special protective coating is incorporated in the plating process of all silver-plated lures adding extended life to the precious metal reflecting qualities.
MDM Pumps was recently contacted by Brecks Chemical Plating Department General Manager looking for help sourcing a pump to have on hand as a replacement for a 20-year-old MDM pump still in operation. The pump needed to be compatible with both acids and cyanides, as both are used in the plating process. After a few quick emails, MDM staff were able to perform a system audit to size and spec a modern pump solution that fit Brecks needs. An Advance Non-Metallic Thermoplastic (Noryl®) 1000 Series pump coupled with a 1/3 HP motor was then selected as the optimum backup replacement for the 20-year-old pump still in operation.
