Monitoring Repairs To Your Pumps
MetadataShow full item record
Many centrifugal pumps are doomed to premature failure because the total pump installation was not evaluated or the repair activity coordinated to correct the basic cause of the initial failure. Pump users have a great need for guidance in repair techniques as pump maintenance is the most expensive aspect of turbomachinery utilization. Because of hazardous nature of the hydrocarbon processing industry, government regulations require repair facilities to maintain detailed instruction manuals, according to manufacturer, and style of pump to guide the repairs. Some owner companies are also developing guidelines to ensure that quality repairs are achieved. Some basic guidelines to be followed in making repairs are discussed. This presentation intended to serve as an aid in developing detailed guidelines.
