Sizing Pumps & Pump Motors

  • July 2021
  • Number of views: 1513
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

Service centers are often called on to provide replacement pumps or pump motors or to advise on pump retrofit and re-application projects. A good understanding of the parameters that govern pump performance is essential to help customers with these opportunities. The information here relates to rotodynamic pumps (centrifugal and axial flow impellers) and not to positive displacement pumps.

Help Customers Save Energy & Money with Power Drive Systems

New study shows major savings potential with power drive systems on commercial pumps

While adding variable speed capability in commercial buildings is not a new idea, a new analysis confirms major energy and cost savings is available by pairing those products with a power drive system (PDS) – regardless of a pump’s load variability. A PDS combines an electric motor, adjustable speed controls and sensors that provide feedback to the equipment, allowing the equipment to slow down or speed up to meet current demand. This idea and the added flexibility a PDS can provide may be even more important as we move forward in uncertain times.

Centrifugal pump failures are most commonly attributed to seal failure, impeller damage and bearing failures. A good understanding of failure modes for seals, impellers and bearings is essential to providing customers with reliable pump repairs.

The Pump Repair Option for Service Centers

Article

EASA service centers looking for options for expansion, or to replace evaporating existing electric motor repair markets, have seen pump repair as a good fit. A majority of EASA service centers currently repair roto-dynamic pumps. Pumps are by far the largest category of machines driven by electric motors. If a service center is repairing electric motors, then it is almost certain that some of those motors are driving pumps, and the prospects for pump repair are its existing customers.

La Opción para la Reparación de Bombas en los Centros de Servicio

  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

Los centros de servicio miembros de EASA que buscan expandirse o que estén interesados en reemplazar los mercados de reparación volátiles existentes, han visto en la reparación de las bombas algo idóneo. Por lo general, la mayoría de los mismos repara bombas roto-dinámicas. Por mucho, las bombas son la categoría más grande de máquinas accionadas por motores eléctricos.

Working with moisture sensors in submersible pumps

  • June 2019
  • Number of views: 3930
  • Article rating: 3.6
Article

Submersible pumps may have any of several types of internal sensors or protective devices. These may include temperature sensors, vibration transducers or moisture sensors. The type of temperature and vibration devices are identical to those used in non-submersible style motors, so only the moisture sensors are of special interest regarding submersible pumps. It is important for technicians involved in the repair of submersible pumps to be aware of their presence in any specific pump they may encounter, and understand the manner in which they function to ensure they work properly after repairs are completed.

Uso de sensores de humedad en bombas sumergibles

  • Article rating: 4.5
Article

Las bombas sumergibles pueden tener diferentes tipos de sensores o dispositivos de protección internos, los cuales pueden ser sensores de temperatura, transductores de vibración o sensores de humedad. Los sensores de temperatura y de vibración son idénticos a los utilizados en los motores no sumergibles, por lo que solo los sensores de humedad guardan especial relación con las bombas sumergibles. Es importante que los técnicos involucrados en la reparación de las bombas sumergibles sean conscientes de su presencia en cualquier bomba en los que se puedan encontrar y que comprendan como trabajan para asegurarse que funcionan correctamente después de terminar los trabajos de reparación.

Wear ring considerations for centrifugal pumps

  • October 2018
  • Number of views: 3842
  • Article rating: 5.0
Article

One of the most common repairs on centrifugal pumps is replacing worn or damaged wear rings. For pumps with closed style impellers (impellers with a front shroud as described below), there will be a casing wear ring and possibly an impeller wear ring which is fitted to the outside diameter (OD) of the impeller suction eye. Impellers may also have rear wear rings which are important for controlling axial thrust. Pumps with open style impellers generally do not have suction eye wear ring clearance concerns, but they often have rear wear rings. The clearances between the stationary casing wear ring and the rotating impeller wear ring are critical to proper pump operation. Although many pump manufacturers will provide proper clearances and dimensions, some do not; there are plenty of old pumps around from now defunct manufacturers where dimension data is simply not available.

Best practices for vertical turbine pump repair

Learn warning signs of needed repairs and avoid common mistakes

  • June 2018

Trade press article — Pumps & Systems

Vertical turbine pumps (VTPs) are workhorses in the petrochemical, power generation and manufacturing industries, and prolific in municipal water applications that handle the primary intake load. Although these machines are ruggedly built, abrasive sediments in the pumpage take a toll, particularly on line shaft and pump bowl bearings, so periodic overhauls are often necessary. Rather than simply replacing the bearings, however, it is important that repairs address all of the issues needed to restore maximum operating life.
