Transfer pumps must be kept in optimum shape to handle harsh chemical processing operations
Edison Brito, Pump Solutions Group
One of the key components in the operational success of chemical process industries (CPI) facilities is the transfer pump. These pumps must handle a wide variety of materials under a broad range of operating conditions. Pumps will perform at their very best only if proactive steps in both preventive and protective maintenance are established and implemented. This article demonstrates how attention to a strict maintenance routine can keep pumps running reliably in chemical-processing environments that put the pump’s operation under constant threat, with the ultimate goal of optimizing pumping-system efficiency and effectiveness. Specifically, centrifugal and air-operated diaphragm pumps are discussed here....
