When components such as the bearings and seals start to wear, the pump will begin to lose efficiency. Pump efficiency can be measured using a graph, showing the efficiency of a pump at a variety of points along its lifespan.
The best efficiency point (BEP) is when the efficiency of the pump is at its highest.
Correct Water Pump maintenance in your area of Eight Mile Plains ensures the pump’s reliability and performance, plus the ability to meet its design standards are maintained at the original specifications.
There are 3 Kinds:
– Corrective Maintenance (aka Reactive)
– Prevention (aka Predictive)
– Monitoring (Both Proactive & Predictive)
Failure is when the product is not performing as expected or at all. Your Eight Mile Plains water pump could exhibit reduced efficiency, leakages, pump stopping etc, leading to reduced or lost production. These failures may require replacement parts.
Preventative maintenance is an inspection or repair schedule that is made on a regular basis. It is carried out by dismantling the machine, replacing seals, and checking mechanical parts for wear and the like.
Pressure – Monitoring any differences between inlet and outlet pressures, ensuring the water pump is operating according to specs.
Vibration – Checking for minimal vibration, within the design limits
Noise – The noise of the pump will be one of the most noticeable changes – always check for changes in noise levels.
If your motor overheats, you may be able to detect the problem without dismantling the machine. If your bearing and casings are too hot, this can cause damage to the unit, so it is important to be able to identify the problem.
Corrosion – Look for corrosion on the casing and impeller.
Gaskets – monitor water or wear in the casing
All of the components that make up the motor should be checked to make sure that the motor is working correctly. If it isn’t working properly, you should repair or replace the components as necessary.
Mechanical seals are barriers which prevent contamination from entering the sealed area. They prevent leakage of fluid and are used in a variety of different applications.
It is best to inspect components before they fail; a monitoring device can detect when the pump is in danger of failure.
Frequency range – We recommend using a high frequency spectrum of data, which will allow you to react more quickly. If you have a low frequency unit, you may need to wait longer to detect a problem.
The system continuously monitors the data and reports to the control unit.
The use of Artificial Intelligence (AI) forecasting helps predict the future. This is helpful in many ways, for example, it helps predict repair needs and ensure provision of adequate funding. AI forecasting is also used to reduce stress in support teams.
