As we learned last month, carbon/graphite fiber packings have proven to be effective solutions to many common sealing applications.
Why question the PLC? For many, questioning the application of a PLC to the pump station panel is surprising. After all, the pump station panel was once controlled with a range of relays, timers, and other devices - the exact type of application where the PLC has had such success in industrial automation. pump efficiency
Ensuring your sodium hypochlorite chemical feed system is properly set up and maintained is crucial to effective operation.
Using root cause failure analysis to address equipment design and manufacturing deficiencies that increase pump reliability and reduce equipment failures.
With the wide use of variable frequency drives in the pump industry and increasing unit size, it is becoming more difficult to design mechanical systems free from natural frequencies within operating speed range. If such an occurrence is allowed in the field, a resulting resonance condition threatens to significantly impact performance and longevity of the equipment.
In an era of conserving energy and increasing sustainability, the MCWA is attempting to reduce energy consumption, greenhouse gases and operations and maintenance costs.
A crucial triumvirate for improving the bottom line. pump system optimization, pump efficiency
The minimum required bolt load divided by the number of bolts in the flange will determine the minimum f, or force, needed to use the torque equation.
Given time, every component of the rotating machinery will eventually fail, even when operating in a perfect environment.
Identifying the source of vibration by following the amplitude: the case of a company that thought the problem was a pump impeller, but, in fact, the problem was over 15-ft away and not a pump at all.
