What is the main cause for a pump seal failure?
95% of the time seal failures are caused by a dirty system. Mud on a seal face shortens the life of the pump seal.
I’ve got a Bell & Gossett, end suction pump with a 40 HP motor and I can’t seem to get the flow and head it was designed to do. What am I missing?
The first thing to check is motor rotation. A centrifugal pump will move water even when it is pumping backwards. Many times this problem is solved by changing rotation.
My pump sounds like it is pumping gravel. What is wrong?
First thing to check in the suction pressure. Install a pressure gauge on the suction side of the pump and compare the reading to the required net positive suction head (NPSH) requirement of the pump.
