Common Pumping Mistakes
End users must understand the conditions that lead to early bearing failure to choose the best technology for their needs.
If power is interrupted, lubrication continues without causing major problems to pump bearings.
A large petrochemical plant increased the service life of its equipment from six months to three years.
The materials are able to withstand dry-run conditions.
Achieve pump and motor longevity by providing proper storage, avoiding pre-service damage, and conducting sound handling and maintenance procedures.
Modern labyrinth bearing protection seals can protect precision elements from contamination.
This equipment exploits the elasticity of synthetic rubber and ensures stable bearing behavior.
A thermoplastic composition in abrasive applications helped bearings meet end user specifications.
These recommendations can help end users prevent equipment degradation in pulp and paper applications.
Last of Two Parts
These components do not have to be sealed from harsh operating media.
This material stands up to pump upsets such as cavitation and dry running.
From storage to dismounting, every aspect of a bearing’s service life can impact its performance and reliability.
Discharges flowing through the bearings put motors at risk.
