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.
Proper field installation of pumps has a measurable positive impact on a pump’s life. Even a superb design will give poor results if poorly installed. Conversely, a moderately good pump design, properly installed, will give good results.
