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.

Limiting end float of a sleeve bearing machine

  • April 2019
  • Number of views: 65
  • Article rating: No rating
Article

There are applications where the end float inherent to a sleeve bearing machine is not desirable, and some means of limiting the axial movement is needed. This is usually accomplished by selecting an appropriate coupling and relying on the driven equipment to prevent axial movement of the motor shaft. 

The gear-hub style of coupling can be end-float limited by installing a “hockey-puck” spacer. The grid-style coupling can be limited by spacers inserted on both sides. 

Regardless of coupling style, unless the driven equipment has some internal means to limit end float, there are circumstances where some external means of preventing axial movement is needed.
