Benefits of Chrome Plated Helical Rotor PumpsDecember 12, 2016
Top quality chrome plating techniques have been in use for some time. If you doubt our word, pop into a local hardware store. There are literally thousands of screws using the tough coating in there. Interestingly enough, these products look like pocket-sized versions of the helical rotor pumps we're about to surface coat.
Pump Rotor and Stator Refurbishment: Knowing the Right Signs When This is NeededDecember 9, 2016
The relationship between a pump rotor and stator is unforgiving. They share a load. That load is felt as mechanical abrasion, as an electrical overload, and as bearing stress. Pump rotor and stator refurbishment procedures check the pump for these right signs, identify the telltales, and record them so that the refurb department can regenerate the aged mechanism.
The Effects of Water Temperature in RotorsNovember 21, 2016
Fluid heating cycles cause pump components to age. In effect, the impeller becomes warped or brittle. Perhaps a fin then breaks off and jams the mechanism so that the volute and impeller are ruined, hence the rotor no longer spins.
Pump Calibration and Its Importance in Helical Rotor Pumps PerformanceNovember 8, 2016
Unlike the flat operating profile of a radial displacement pump, the generation of shear-free pockets of linearly transmitted fluids takes some finesse. Pump calibration, therefore, is an important duty, especially when helical rotor pumps are expected to meter viscous fluids.
Limitations of Helical Rotor PumpsOctober 27, 2016
An unbiased review can't help but side with the numerous benefits built right into helical rotor pumps, but that doesn't mean these invaluable pumps are perfect. Like any other real world machine, they have limitations. Not to worry, one of the jobs of a design engineer is to overcome limitations. This is done by getting down to the so-called nitty-gritty so that each drawback can be intimately known and comprehensively neutralized.
Common Causes of Abrasion Problems in Helical Rotor PumpsOctober 17, 2016
Buried within the heart of a top-notch helical rotor pump, the continuous cavity formed by the screw-like drive is efficiently channeling shear sensitive slurries towards their final destination. The pump is robust and particulate resistant due to a toughened material build, but abrasion problems are persistent beasts.
Pump Rotor Refurbishment and Reconditioning Services in MelbourneSeptember 27, 2016
Curiously, pump rotors use several contrasting forms, not a universal shape. There's the standard wound rotor, of course, a polyphase induction armature that uses a laminated core. Conversely, progressive cavity rotors employ a solid helical drive component, a corkscrewing segment of hardened steel.
Rotary Vacuum Pumps and Their UsesSeptember 14, 2016
The unique build of this positive displacement pump features a principle that's closely related to helical rotors, but it's a smaller eccentrically installed rotor that induces fluid displacement here, not a rotating helical rotor. Indeed, rotary vacuum pumps displace fluid on a smaller scale than their progressive cavity cousins, but this reduced scale does have its advantages, including an ability to fill many challenging pumping applications.
Significance of Rotary Actuators in PumpsAugust 23, 2016
Flow regulation is the bane of modern pump design. Electronic controls can help here by altering the electromagnetic field rotating within the pump stator, but there's another way to solve this problem. Rotary actuators in pumps use a feedback system to monitor fluid pressure.
What is Back Pressure and Its Effect on Pumps?August 9, 2016
Pump design mastery tends to intelligently work within the boundaries of fluid dynamics, but back pressure is one force that can topple this balancing act. We suppose an ideal system would exhibit ideal flow characteristics and zero resistance, but we live in the real world, a place where physics-based constraints will have their way.
Significance of Rotary Pumps for Sludge and Sewage TreatmentJuly 25, 2016
Challenging conditions test our waste disposal pipes when their transported fluids are loaded with sludgy currents. Glutinous liquids are carrying suspended particulate matter through the waste line while an adjacent waste disposal channel funnels effluent streams full of semi-solid chunks toward a sewage processing plant.
Symptoms of Worn RotorsJuly 15, 2016
Helical rotor pumps provide gentle turning force, which means they act as a low-mix mechanism that can move the thickest sludges. Large volumes of particulate matter are carefully channelled in this manner, as are nasty streams of semi-solid sewage.
Benefits and Limitations of Helical Rotor PumpsJune 28, 2016
Screw-like rotating parts pump productively within our best helical rotor pumps to generate pulseless discharges. The application-specific mechanism excels in such tasks, but it does have limitations.
Cost and Budget Benefits of Reconditioning Pump Wear PartsJune 16, 2016
Let’s face it; a new pump can be quite expensive if not outrageous in price. However, reconditioning pump wear parts can save you tremendous amounts of dollars. Not only does reconditioning pump wear parts improve efficiency but it help lengthen the shelf life of your device.
Most Common Pump Rotor ProblemsMay 31, 2016
Pumps are determined mechanical beasts. They work day and night, actuate on command when a manual switch is turned over or automatically when a float switch triggers. Still, pumps are as susceptible to wear and damage as any other piece of equipment.
Investment Benefits of Choosing a Reliable Pump Rotor BuilderMay 19, 2016
Pump components spin around the clock, maybe turning off and on every so often as a float switch or sensor dictates. At the heart of the mechanism, a toughened rotor provides rotational momentum on its drive shaft.
Purposes and Functions of Drive ShaftsApril 28, 2016
The single goal of a stator and rotor, the purpose of the electromechanical relationship induced by wire-bound electrical currents, is to move one or more drive shafts. Defined as little more than a solid cylinder, the thin tube rotates at great speed. Speed pairs with torque, which causes forces to be generated as radial motion.
Pump Rotor Service: Inspection, Maintenance, Repair and Replacement PartsApril 15, 2016
Pump Rotor Service: Inspection, Maintenance, Repair and Replacement Parts. Every revolution of a pump rotor equals wear, a cumulative decline in mechanical functionality.
Maintenance Recommendations for PumpsMarch 30, 2016
Engineering principles suggest a natural relationship occurs when mechanical parts partner with electrical circuits. Unfortunately, at least in the case of pumps, this relationship often takes place in harsh environments.
Tips in Finding the Best Pump Wear Parts SupplierMarch 16, 2016
Your partner in pumping should cover more than making a final sale. There are key points to consider when selecting the pump, engineering peculiarities that will influence wear and functionality.
Functions of Pump RotorsFebruary 29, 2016
A rotor is a series of parts made to rotate on a shaft inside a special housing. In the case of pump rotors, the shaft of the rotating assembly incorporates electrical windings, varnished coils of wiring that contain electrical power.
Pump Services, Repair and Maintenance: Your Guide to Choosing the Best for Your BusinessJanuary 29, 2016
In this guide, we're looking at solutions, potent pump services that keep your fluids on the move. The pump you use is, in all likelihood, designed to function according to its application, but mechanical problems and electrical faults can develop without warning.
Industrial Pump Reconditioning: Alpha Pumps Can Do The Job For You!January 27, 2016
A cutaway view of an operating pump shows off dozens of smoothly meshed electro- mechanical components. Pipes and waterproof housings bolt on to the drive section, and a series of vanes can just be seen spinning as a blurry within the impeller housing.
