Learn About Pumps

The earlier problems are detected, the easier they are to fix! During routine maintenance checks, if you find any problems with your industrial pumps contact us as soon as possible.

For example, check for drips and patches of water underneath your water pump. A leaky pump is a clear sign that it needs servicing right away.

One of the most common problems associated with water pumps is overheating. To avoid the need for costly pump repair, clear the dust off cooling fans on a regular basis. A buildup of debris makes it difficult for water pumps to cool down causing them to overheat.

About Submersible Pumps  |  About Sump Pumps

Submersible Pumps

A submersible pump ( SP or sub pump or electric submersible pump) is a device which has a hermetically sealed motor close-coupled to the pump body. The whole assembly is designed to be submerged in the fluid to be pumped.

A submersible pump has a series of mechanical seals to prevent fluid from getting into the motor.

The main advantage of this type of pump is that it prevents pump cavitation, a problem associated with a high elevation difference between pump and the fluid surface. Submersible pumps push fluid to the surface as opposed to jet pumps having to pull fluids. Submersibles are more efficient than jet pumps.

Submersible Pumps (SP) cover a wide range of applications where efficient water pumping is required, including; Water supply, Irrigation, Mining, Fountains, Reverse osmosis, Dewatering, Ground water lowering and many more.

Most Common Problems with Sumbersible Pumps

A submersible pump may fail for the following reasons; Significant changes in temperature, Tank size is too small, Short cycling, Running dry, Lightning strikes, Improper selection of high head pumps in low head applications.

The following is a short list of possible reasons for Submersible Pump failures:

  • Significant changes in temperature
  • Hydraulic Loading / Water Hammer
  • Voltage unbalance
  • Voltage spikes
  • Tank size is too small
  • Short cycling
  • Running dry
  • Lightning strikes

FAQ's - Sump Pumps

A sump pump is a small pump installed in the lowest part of a basement or crawlspace, to help keep the area under the building dry and to prevent it from flooding. Usually, sump pumps are installed in specially constructed sump pits.

Water flows into the sump pit through drains or by natural water migration through the soil. The sump pump's job is to pump the water out of the pit and away from the building so the basement or crawlspace stays dry.

There are two types of sump pumps; Submersible and Pedestal. A submersible pump is completely concealed inside the tank. A pedestal model has a column that protrudes up through the tank's cover; the motor is mounted on the column, above floor level.

Both types draw water in through a filter trap (this should be cleaned periodically). They pump water out through a discharge pipe and/or hose. As soon as an automatic pump empties the tank to a certain level, the motor turns off.

Sump Pump Cycles Repeatedly Won't Turn Off

A sump pump constantly running will most likely burn out the motor prematurely, so it's important to resolve the issue promptly. Before calling a professional determite whether the problem arises from a faulty sump pump float switch, which controls the power to sump pump. If so, you may be able to replace it yourself.

The following is a short list of possible reasons for sump pump running continuously:

  • Defective check valve on your discharge pipe
  • Missing Valve
  • A sewer leak near sump pump
  • A clog or break in the underground discharge pipe
  • The size and location of your sump pump may be affecting performance

Pump Sounds as if it is Pumping Gravel

It is likely cavitation. Cavitation means that cavities or bubbles are forming in the liquid being pumped. Symptoms of cavitation include excessive noise and vibration and loss of capacity, pressure and efficiency. Cavitation can cause damage to the pump.

Solutions include changing the operational parameters or even replacing your pump with a pump better suited to the application.

Pump Starts and Stops

Every time the motor starts, the windings see a high inrush current of up to about 10 times the nameplate amps (locked rotor code M). The motor dissipates the inrush of energy as heat. If you start the motor too many times, a build up of heat can cause damage to the motor.

Pump Shakes With Loud Noises

It maybe as result of what is commonly referred to as "water hammer" which has to do with the changing velocity of the water inside the pipeline.

When moving water accelerates or stops, it applies a force to whatever it contact with. If the high velocity water hammer hits a pipe fitting hard enough, it can actually burst the pipe.

Can I Install Mechanical Seal on Packed Centrifugal Pump

In most cases, yes but there must be enough room to install one. Machining work may be done to "true up" corroded surfaces or unmachined surfaces initially designed to be packed.

Pump is not Priming

The pump is likely not being fed properly or there could also be Net Positive Suction Head (NPSH) issue related to the temperature or type of fluid.

Unless the pump is a "self priming" pump, it will not prime until pump is full of water and no air trapped inside the pump.

Mechanical Seal Burning Up

If mechanical seal is being used with hot water, the water may be evaporating (flashing off), leaving the seal faces with no lubricant.

You can either change to a mechanical seal specially designed for hot water applications or install a water cooling device to avoid flashing.

The problem could also be caused by materials incompatibility, improper installation, running dry due to lack of water or the systems application.
