Discover Reliability Facts; Rethink Old Assumptions [On-Demand Webinar]

In this 55-minute on-demand webinar with professional engineer, pump industry expert, and esteemed author, Heinz P. Bloch, viewers will be challenged to think about better ways to maintain pumps and equipment, with an emphasis on identifying and cost-justifying process pump upgrades.

Throughout this presentation, he touches upon important concepts covered in his book, “Optimized Equipment Lubrication, Oil Mist Technology, and Storage Preservation”, which was co-authored by Don Ehlert and Fred K. Geitner. Their book addresses lubrication issues from the vantage point of three experts with well over 130 years of the combined experience. Their laser-sharp focus is on optimally applying lubricant to all kinds of ‘general purpose’ machines. These include process pumps, electric motors, and other equipment incorporating rolling element bearings where traditional methods are usually very much out-of-step with best available practices. Because oil mist lubrication and large scale oil mist preservation are extensively used by best-of-class (BoC) user companies, these BoCs have long profited from high asset reliability and unparalleled maintenance cost avoidance. In addition to giving previously unavailable statistics, the book describes the methods and procedures employed in these successful pursuits as well as many cost justification calculations used by BoCs.

    One of the most important choices of an new or replacement pump is the application or of a new or replacement pump is the, What Where and Why and most important is the material being transferred. I can’t tell you how many pumps and impellers have failed as they were chosen because of price rather than the material. I will use sea water as an example: I had pumps that failed in a year or months when the should have last many years. I rebuilt them with Simms (Simmesite, or impellers and or complete pumps and they lasted for many many years and most seals wore out long before the impellers or body’s.) Other huge decisions are based on ( speed ) RPM and application. Many are based on a page in a catalog and or price. These cause the unit to fail and it leave the work to the plant shut-down with much greater cost to the owner. Always involve the operation and maintenance department on equipment choices.
