Why Pumps Fail

Convention presentation

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

  • February 2020
  • Number of views: 481
  • Article rating: No rating

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

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

  • Article rating: 3.0

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

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

  • Article rating: No rating

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

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.

Preparing for the new focus on pumps and pump systems

Everyone is probably familiar with the impact of energy efficiency efforts on our industry. For electric motors, this has been both a concern and an incentive for innovation. EASA members and manufacturers have been shaped by the governmental and market forces aimed at reducing electrical energy usage. Electric motors are a primary target of these “green” efforts.

But the commercial and regulatory landscape is ever evolving, and the horizon coming into view includes a new focus on pumps and pump systems. The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is implementing efficiency standards for rotodynamic pumps (centrifugal and axial flow pumps). The standards will have little effect on the pump repair market, while pump manufacturers are directly affected. But pump efficiency is very different from electric motor efficiency.

Preparándose para el nuevo enfoque en bombas y sistemas de bombeo

Probablemente todo el mundo se encuentra familiarizado con el impacto de los esfuerzos de la eficiencia energética en nuestra industria. Esto ha sido una preocupación y un incentivo para la innovación en los motores eléctricos. Los miembros de EASA y los fabricantes han sido moldeados por las fuerzas gubernamentales y del mercado, destinadas a reducir el uso de la energía eléctrica. Los motores eléctricos son un objetivo primordial de estos esfuerzos "verdes".

Pero el panorama comercial y regulatorio se encuentra en constante evolución y el horizonte que se vislumbra incluye un nuevo enfoque para las bombas y los sistemas de bombeo.
