In the US, the pump industry is worth $29 billion a year. Industrial pumps form a critical part of other industries such as food processing, pharmaceutical, and water waste treatment. Like any other industrial equipment, they tend to degrade in the long run and would break down eventually. When the pump ceases to function, your entire system operation is naturally affected.
Common Problems Of Industrial Pumps
The most common type of industrial pumps is the centrifugal pump. It uses rotational energy from the electrical motor to rotate the impeller and provide pressure and movement to the fluid that passes through. If you find your pump stopped working efficiently, here are the common suspects.
The impeller is a rotating part of the pump that generates flow and pressure of the liquid. A worn out or damaged impeller would result in low or no liquid to be delivered by the pump. A damaged impeller can also lead to the pump drawing too much power.
Leakage and blockage are also common issues that plague industrial pumps. This also affects the delivery and pressure of the liquid. The pressure of different points in the part is usually measured to identify the area of blockage or leaks. In certain cases, youll find that prolonged corrosion is the reason why your pump stops working.
Repairing Industrial Pumps
We strictly discourage you from inspecting and repairing a faulty pump on your own. Industrial pumps involve electrical and moving parts that may risk injury or loss of life for untrained personnel. Instead, we recommend that you engage our experienced technician to evaluate the pump before evaluating if any repair should be carried out on-site or in-house.
Our team would perform a quick check on common parts of the pump that usually require service or repair. We look for excessive leakage on the packing gland and would attempt to tighten it. A new packing would be replaced if necessary.
Another part of our inspection involves the bearings of the pump. We look for signs of overheating and determine the cause of that. Well inspect the bearings in detail to check if any of them have been worn out and require replacement. Our service personnel also ensure that there are no dirt particles trapped that will lead to damaged bearings.
We also check for any unusual vibrations that could point to more problems in the pump. Ourservice team follows a systematic checklist and would document every anomaly that they identify. Based on that, we would recommend the best course of repair action for your pump.
