Visual Inspections Increase Centrifugal Pump Life

While there are many reasons why centrifugal pumps fail, a large percentage can be attributed to bearing failure caused by lubrication issues. Key factors that induce tribological failures include contamination, insufficient lubricant quantity, unsuitable lubricant and overextending relubrication intervals, all of which are preventable. Des-Case’s Mark Barnes discusses the factors that can make a big difference in centrifugal pump life in the April 2022 edition of Pumps & Systems magazine.
