dc.description.abstractMarket pressures are demanding cost reductions in the process industries. Most operators are seeking to achieve substantial savings through reductions in the maintenance and “real” operating costs of centrifugal pumps of which seals, couplings and sealed bearings are critical elements. This paper reports on the variable lifetimes being currently achieved, the improvements that are being made through performance surveys and reliability improvement programs and the importance f cooperation between supplier and user. Data are often very difficult to get and to interpret. The paper discusses how detailed surveys in over 20 operating plants have been carried out and the results analyzed. Special software has been developed for the continuous monitoring and management of pumps, seals, couplings, and bearings in operating plants, and this is described.en
