Topic: industrial pump repair sarasota pump repair pool pumps pumps

Electric AC motors operate at a fixed speed and are ideal for applications where a constant output is necessary. However, many motor applications have a level of varying speed demand. In the past, applications that needed precise speed control used expensive direct current (DC) motors or hydraulic couplings in machine speed regulation.

Pool pumps play a critical role in helping to keep your pool water fresh and clean. This is why you should ensure your pool pump is properly maintained to keep it running well. However, even with regular maintenance, the appliance can still develop problems. Some of these issues can be repaired while others will call for pool pump replacements. But how will you know it is time to replace your pool pump?

Below are some signs to look out for.

Is Connecting A Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) Onto A Single-Phase Motor Possible?

Topic: industrial pump prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair control, motor and pump service center

The use of 3-phase motors is commonplace but sometimes using a 3-phase motor is unsuitable or one is just not available.  A single-phase motor will just have to do.  

The one thing that they both have in common is that, sometimes, the motors will require a speed adjustment for whatever application they are positioned for.  To do this, a Variable Frequency Drive (VFD) is needed.

Topic: industrial pump prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair control, motor and pump service center

Design and innovation is alive and well and there are some areas of industrial technology that have seen exponential growth and development in 2020.

Given the current state of affairs, that would be rather difficult to conceive. But thanks to the fourth industrial revolution, it would seem that there are several areas between tech and manufacturing that are about to go through some significant changes. And changes for the better.

So, for the purpose of this post, let's take a look at just exactly what the fourth industrial revolution is and how it is affecting the trends of today's current electric motor market.

Pumps operate mainly through converting electrical power into motion. The performance of a pump can be measured using 3 main analytical models; flow rate (Q), head (h), and efficiency (n). These 3 models allow users to gain an overall sense of how the pump is performing during operation.

If you were to take an informal survey of the pump types in use today, you would probably find that many of them are split case horizontal pumps. These industrial workhorses, while not as flexible as many other designs, have been known to continue to work year after year, even decades, without failure. Let's look at the split case horizontal pumps and what makes them special.

All About Explosion-Proof Pumps

Topic: prevent industrial pump from needing repair pump repair explosion-proof motors pump motors pump technologies

In certain pumping applications, there can be sensitive hazardous conditions. It could be that the environment around the material to be pumped is explosive for one of several reasons. Or the material to be pumped itself could be considered hazardous. In both cases, the situation may call for a particular type of pump, known as an explosion-proof pump. This type of pump is designed to protect both the environment and the material to be transferred from pump related conditions that could cause detonation.

Avoiding the "Run to Failure" With System Pumps

A November 2017 article by Pumps and Systems points out that many industrial plant maintenance crews have become experts at corrective pump maintenance procedures. Replacing seals and bearings or the entire pump itself often becomes routine for these workers because of sheer repetition.

Plant maintenance teams need to be able to monitor flow rate, temperatures, and pressures and know how to interpret that data to prevent pump problems before they occur. The lack of adequate sensors on many pumps prevents any detection of the potential pump hazards in the system. Even when information is available from sensors, lack of training could cause a failure to recognize a problem in time to take action.
