Consider Unusual Pump Mounting Methods

Process pumps can be found mounted in many ways. While there are situations in which a pump can be adequately mounted at least cost, there are also instances when process pumps need to be mounted with uncompromising diligence and quality of workmanship. It is therefore important to understand how a pump should be mounted.

Transient Pressure Monitoring on the Rise

Transient pressure monitoring is quickly becoming a standard across multiple industries and applications. While it was once used almost exclusively to record pressure from occasional water hammer events, industry experts now recognize the benefits of continuous transient pressure monitoring to ensure optimal fluid system operations.

Heat Exchanger World Americas, Last Days to Register!

Heat Exchanger World Americas is less than one month away! The largest North American heat transfer event will be taking place on November 16th & 17th at the Pasadena Convention Center in Pasadena Tx.

The Benefits of Additive Manufacturing for Pump Operators

Pumps are involved in every major industrial sector. The diversity of their functions is matched by the variety in their design. Keeping these vital pieces of equipment in optimum condition ensures continued efficiency and reliability.

Torque Optimization & Its Purpose in Pumps

Some of the challenges end users face with pumping systems are the natural frequency and vibration that occur during operation. Having a torque force that is consistent with the speed of the pump allows for smooth operation and effectively avoids the recurrence of troubleshooting. It is important operators are aware of the consequences of failing to optimize the torque in pumping units and the differences between speed and torquing.

Increasing Pump Investment for the Semiconductor Industry

Water scarcities in Arizona, Taiwan, China and many locations where new semiconductor plants are being built have underscored the need for water conservation. Additionally, water reuse may be more economic than bringing surface water to the ultrapure level.

Unclogging a Pump with Just a Variable Frequency Drive?

For years, the changing nature of wastewater has posed challenges for pump operators at utilities, municipalities, and industrial wastewater process plants. To help preserve freshwater resources, reduced-consumption devices such as toilets, shower heads, and water-consuming appliances have become the standard. This progression has had the effect of making the wastewater more solid than fluid. When disposable wipes were introduced, the content of solids in the wastewater systems increased further. This has caused a significant increase in ‘clogged pump’ events causing many operators frustration and additional budget impact due to the costs to clear these clogs.
