The repair cost of a pump constitutes a significant fraction of the maintenance expenses. However, if carried out precisely, it will help the user cut on ongoing operating costs. This is why, to gain maximum economic benefits, the pump user should check if the power consumption of the repaired pump matches the technical requirements for efficiency. Otherwise, the user risks facing high operating costs due to excessive power usage.
The testing station on the site enables the check-up of a pump’s parameters after repair. This allows the customer to ascertain if the repair has delivered the required results. Such a check-up is done during the acceptance tests after the repair itself. The testing procedure includes a check of the operating parameters such as vibration level, temperatures of selected structure nodes, tightness, rundown time after shutoff, etc. The main goal of the acceptance tests is to measure the hydraulic parameters of the repaired pump, such as efficiency, delivery head and power efficiency, and to make the end user rest assured that the repair has been carried out according to the required quality parameters. This has a huge impact on the reliability of the repaired pump and the cost of electricity consumption.
