How to Improve Chemical Pump Performance and Reliability?

The average annual maintenance and operating costs of the pump are higher than other types of rotating machinery. As the main force of the factory, its energy consumption accounts for one of the highest proportions among many industrial equipment. Especially in the chemical industry, because it relies on chemical pumps to transport some corrosive liquids, the time and expense spent on operation and maintenance cannot be underestimated during the entire life cycle of the chemical pumps. Therefore, how to reduce the damage rate of the chemical pump and increase its production capacity has become a common topic for all factories.


Of course, it is well-known to try our best to achieve ‘energy saving’. However, in addition to saving energy consumption of chemical pumps, if we want to have a great effect in reducing costs and increasing factory output, we must also improve the ‘reliability’ of pumps. In order to make the chemical pump run more smoothly, the following methods can be adopted. To save pump energy, these are the ways: 10 Tips on Energy Saving in Pumping Systems

1. Proper Design and Equipment


Using the proper pump is the first step in building a reliable pumping system. The specifications should meet the operation requirements. Many factors must be taken into consideration, such as flow rate, head, fluid characteristics, operating temperature and pressure, etc., and then accurately select the most suitable model according to the pump performance curve, even under dynamic operating conditions. It can also prevent the chemical pump or parts from overloading and excessive vibration to shorten the service life.

In addition, fatigue wear and cracked surfaces of components are the root causes of pump failures. The fatigue life of components under cyclic or dynamic loading can be programmed to be infinite. For those components that have previously broken, the design can be redeveloped to increase the expected fatigue life as the cyclic loading and associated stresses are reduced.


2. Operational Status Monitoring


As we often mentioned, the pump needs regular health checks, but in order to grasp its performance in a more timely and comprehensive manner, preventive maintenance must be done, and use the professional status monitoring tools. The purpose of continuous monitoring is to prevent failures such as process delays or downtime, and expensive repair costs.


3. Prevent Leakage Problem


If a chemical pump leaks when delivering fluid, it will be a hazard to the operator and the environment, and you will also have to bear the cost of cleanup and material loss. The sealless magnetic drive pump completely seals the fluid in the chamber, which can successfully avoid leakage concerns. The simple structure makes maintenance more convenient and the maintenance frequency can be reduced. In addition, its excellent corrosive fluid handling ability can help your factory to improve productivity. In terms of fluid delivery, the sealless magnetic drive pump can provide an absolutely reliable solution.


4. Pump Packages and Transport


The size of the wooden box for packing the pump must match the size of the product. For different pumps, the transport boxes are different. Try to avoid

damage to the pump and parts during the process of moving and transporting. If you consider environmental protection and operation, you can also replace disposable materials with reusable materials

 

If you want to build a reliable chemical pump system, please refer to the above four methods to improve pump performance and reliability, but it is also recommended to consult professionals in advance to achieve the desired results.
