What are the Reasons for Pump failure in high pressure pumps?
Pump failure can cost a lot of money in terms of downtime, repairs, and damage. Understanding the causes of failure can aid in the selection of a pumping equipment, thus reducing the likelihood of failure.
i) Check to see if the equipment's high-pressure pump has failed, as well as whether the water treatment accessories and consumables are in good working order.
ii) It's possible that the pre-filter is clogged if neither waste water nor clean water is discharged, or if only a little amount of waste water is discharged.
iii) When only waste water but no clean water is discharged, the check valve becomes stopped.
iv) The solenoid valve has failed and cannot be started.
Reasons for Pump failure in high pressure pumps
When the water production problem is resolved, the high-pressure pump in the mineral water equipment operates normally. Thus, in this article, we'll look at four typical reasons for pump failure in high pressure pumps and how to avoid them.
1. Solids in the water induce abrasive wear
Because mineral water pump stations have higher degrees of filtration, this form of wear is normally decreased, although rocks or other debris might become stuck inside the pump and cause problems. The presence of this debris is far more common in raw water pump stations. Gravel occasionally finds its way into the finished water system, most frequently as a result of a building job.
2. Chemical reactions
Chemical reactions between the solution and the impeller material, result in corrosion and impeller degradation. Variables in the water, such as the chemicals used for treatment, cavitation, and water temperature, might worsen these problems. The corrosivity of the water in the pump impeller may be affected by how water operators chlorinate it.
Cavitation can weaken the metal, increase flow resistance, and reduce pumping efficiency by causing pitting and fractures in the impeller, volutes, and casing. The shaft and motor's service life may be shortened as a result of the shock loads caused by cavitation. Cavitation and the difficulties, it generates can drastically reduce the life of a pump, cutting it in half or more in extreme circumstances.
Particulate matter sticks to the interior surfaces of a pump, most typically in the distribution lines connected to the intake or outflow, causing fouling. Pumping efficiency and flow capacity are reduced as a result, and the system may finally fail. This is an unavoidable issue, although it is particularly common in applications where the pumped fluid contains particles. Various cleaning methods, on the other hand, can be employed to keep the pump in good working order and increase its efficiency and capacity.
Pumps will certainly require maintenance at some time, and having access to a pump engineer who can come to you directly to repair your pump is critical. The manufacturer is ideally suited to perform this maintenance, as well as evaluate and solve any issues you may be experiencing, because they will know the best solution for that pump.
