Everything You Need to Know About Pumps

Published by Bachus Company, Inc.

 

Very few industrial pumps go into the maintenance shop because the volute casing or impeller split down the middle, or because the shaft fractured into four pieces. The majority of pumps go into the shop because the bearings or the mechanical seal failed.

 

The focus of industrial plant maintenance has always been that the system design is correct, and that the operation of the pumps in the system is as it should be. In this book, you will see that in the majority of occasions, this is not true. Most of us in maintenance spend our valuable time, just changing parts, and in the best of cases, performing preventive maintenance, trying to diminish the time required to change those parts.We almost never stop to consider, What’s causing the continual failure of this equipment? This book will help you to avoid frequent, mysterious, emergency pump failure.

 

This book is directed toward the understanding of industrial pumps and their systems. It won’t be a guide to design pumps, or repair pumps. There are existing books and courses directed toward those themes. By understanding the real causes  for pump failure, analyzing those failures, and diagnosing pump behavior through interpretation of  gauges and instrumentations, you can achieve productive pump operation and contain maintenance costs. This book serves  as a guide to STOP repairing industrial pumps.

 

 

Bombas Centrífugas, Todo lo que Necesita Saber sobre Ellas

published by Bachus Company Inc.

 

Muy pocas bombas van al taller mecánico porque se partió la voluta o el impulsor, o porque se fracturó el eje en cuatro piezas. La mayoría de las bombas van al taller porque fallaron los rodamientos o el sello mecánico.

 

El enfoque del personal de mantenimiento de las plantas industriales ha sido que el diseño del sistema es correcto y la operación del sistema de bombas es como debe ser. En este libro verá que en la mayoría de las ocasiones NO es así. Nos pasamos la mayoría del tiempo cambiando piezas y en el mejor de los casos haciendo mantenimiento preventivo para disminuir el tiempo requerido para cambiar esas piezas.  Casi nunca nos detenemos a pensar ¿Porque rayos la bomba sigue fallando? Este libro le ayudará a evitar esas fallas contínuas, imprevistas de las bombas industriales. 

 

Este libro se dirige a la comprensión de las bombas y sus sistemas. No será una guía en como diseñar bombas, ni reparar bombas.  Ya existen libros y cursos dedicados a esos temas.  Al comprender las causas reales de las fallas, y por diagnosticar el comportamiento de la bomba por interpretar los manómetros e instrumentación, usted puede lograr la operación productiva de sus bombas a costo bajo de mantenimiento.  Este libro es  una guía de cómo DEJAR atrás la reparación contínua de bombas.
