PumpMan Socal also offers Planned Maintenance Plans for your municipal pump systems. We can help your city keep on top of the maintenance that is required to keep its pumping systems running efficiently. We will evaluate and design a Planned Maintenance Program around your pumping system’s needs. Our program will look at all the conditions of your system and address the regular operational needs of preventative maintenance as well as looking for signs of possible future issues to avoid reaching a point of pump system failure. This may be seeing unusual sign of wear, heat generation, lubrication usage, vibrations, pressure, speed, noise, flow, strain, leakage, fugitive emissions, or power consumption.
Keeping pumps operating successfully for long periods of time requires careful pump design selection, proper installation, careful operation, the ability to observe changes in performance over time, and in the event of a failure, the capacity to thoroughly investigate the cause of the failure and take measures to prevent the problem from re-occurring. Pumps that have been: properly sized, are dynamically balanced, that sit on stable foundations with good shaft alignment, with proper lubrication, where operators start, run, and stop the machinery with care and where the maintenance personnel observe for unhealthy trends that begin to appear and act on them usually never experience a catastrophic failure.
Breakdown or Run to Failure Maintenance
“The basic philosophy is to allow the machinery to run to failure and only repair or replace damaged equipment when obvious problems occur. Studies have shown that the costs to operate in this fashion are about $18 per horsepower per year.”
Pro-Active or Prevention Pump Maintenance
“This philosophy utilizes all of the predictive / preventive pump maintenance techniques discussed above in concert with root cause failure analysis to not only detect and pinpoint the precise problems that occur but to insure that advanced installation and repair techniques are performed including potential equipment redesign or modification to avoid or eliminate problems from occurring.
