Pump

Pumps are indispensable for conveying liquid or solid media and for ensuring specified pressure conditions.

Pumps are indispensable for conveying liquid or solid media and for ensuring specified
pressure conditions. Pumps are used in the following applications:

  • Power generation
  • Chemical industry
  • Water supply
  • Sewage disposal
  • Steel production
  • Mining
  • Automotive industry
  • Environmental technology.


A central component of a pump is the impeller, which is equipped with blades and rotates
inside the pump. The most common use of a pump impeller is in a centrifugal pump, which
sucks up material and then discharges it. Typical disruptions that may occur, shortening
the service life of a pump, are the following:

  • Cavitation
  • Roller bearing damage
  • Unbalances
  • Misalignment.

 
Condition monitoring helps to avoid disruptions, to detect wear processes early on and to
optimize the service life of the components. The result: increased plant availability
and productivity. Corrective measures, such as shaft alignment, field balancing or measuring
foundation flatness, round up the implementation of active servicing for these machine types.
