ITT Goulds Pumps identifies 4 critical factors to prevent premature pump failure: oil contamination, oil viscosity, air cooling, and monitoring bearing failure
An ITT Goulds Pumps expert details how four (4) critical factors have the greatest impact on a pump’s lifespan; therefore, understanding and monitoring these elements will result in effective pump operation over a maximum period of time. These factors include oil contamination, oil viscosity, air cooling, and monitoring bearing failure. Approximately 90 percent of pump failures result from malfunctioning seals or bearings, so understanding what to look for and how to maintain these components will extend the life of your equipment. Ultimately, if you successfully and consistently prevent pumping errors, you’ll maintain efficient operations without facing halted production due to repairs. Read the full paper here.
