The pump is the heart of the plant
It keeps the process moving and therefore requires increased attention. This is because regular maintenance is the only way to ensure smooth operation of the system and guarantee long service lives. Gear pumps are the simplest pumps in the genus of positive displacement pumps in terms of their design because they usually have only two moving parts, the gears.
Despite the use of materials of the highest quality and durability, regular inspection of the pumps is elementary. This is because trouble-free operation can only be guaranteed if the gears, bearings and sealing parts are checked regularly.
Gears and bearings are often exposed to aggressive fluids, which leads to these components being attacked. This causes wear and tear, and the pump no longer achieves the required performance. It is therefore important to regularly check the pumps and replace the wearing parts accordingly to avoid serious damage to the housing.
