Pump Engineering

Pump Engineering

Pump engineering is our core competency. We specialize in:

  • Root cause failure analysis
  • Field testing and vibration analysis
  • Plant rerate support
  • Upgrade recommendations
  • Repair/upgrade/replace economic analysis

Our analytical tasks include:

  • Full pump performance testing:
    • Hydraulic and mechanical integrity
    • Power usage optimization
    • Vibration and modal analysis
  • Reliability-centered maintenance life predictions
  • Redesign to eliminate causes of failure
  • Stress and failure analysis

A pump and system design audit is a review of a pump and system installation, including original design parameters, actual operating conditions, and maintenance history. The audit typically includes a walkdown of the pump and system to collect operating data as well as discussions with plant personnel on operation issues and maintenance history. The audit can:

  • Identify and resolve pump or system abnormalities
  • Optimize pump operations and predictive maintenance
  • Recommend potential energy savings

ProPump Services will supply experienced personnel to perform a full range of pump, driver, and system testing and solutions analysis. System and pump design audits can be performed for most pump types and OEM brands.

Typical Scope of Work

System Walkdown

  • Collect pump installation data
  • Review piping parameters
  • Inspect pump environment

Maintenance History Review

  • Review past and present mean-time-between failures
  • Interview responsible departmental personnel
  • Evaluate system components and their characteristics
  • Analyze and make recommendations for improvements

Design Review

  • Identify design weaknesses/ corrections
  • Analyze pump application to system requirements
  • Review operating procedures
  • Provide technical support information
