Engineers and technicians looking to optimize their process for productive operation can start with protecting the pump against common hazards. Pump protection improves end-product or batch quality, reduces material costs, eliminates waste and lowers maintenance costs. Taking good care of your pump delivers a positive payback. Some simple strategies that can be employed-starting with an analysis of process media flow rates.




Taking Care of Your Pumps

Three preventative, proactive steps to take to avoid early pump replacement :
  1. When designing new plants or retrofitting old ones, be sure to consider pump requirements. Optimizing your process with your pumps in mind offers a wide range of benefits: higher capacity, improved quality, lower energy costs, reduced maintenance and increased equipment (pump) life.
  2. Consider inserting a flow conditioner to eliminate turbulent flow problems. Irregular flows caused by turbulence frequently result when the minimum pipe straight runs required between the point of pump suction and elbows, valves or other equipment are either ignored or pushed to the limits. Inserting a flow conditioner frequently eliminates turbulent flow problems.
  3. Another key safeguard is to protect your pump from accidental low flow or dry running conditions, which can lead to bearing or seal loss requiring expensive repairs. Inserting a dual alarm flow switch in your process loop not only protects the pump from damage, but will alert you to a potential problem and let you be proactive in evaluating the necessity of pump shutdown.
