Choosing the Right Pump

Industrial pumps are inevitable in everyday operations today, and the market is buzzing with new products. The range of pumps is so versatile that one might get overwhelmed. Choosing the right pump for the efficient functioning of your business facility is crucial. You should consider several factors before investing in an industrial pump. These include:

  • Material of construction
    The choice of pump material is pivotal in determining its longevity and effectiveness in handling specific fluids. Different materials exhibit varying resistance levels to corrosion, abrasion, and chemical reactions. For instance, pumps constructed with corrosion-resistant materials such as stainless steel become imperative when dealing with corrosive substances. 
     

  • Nature of fluid to be processed
    Understanding the nature of the fluid being processed is important. Density, temperature, and the presence of solids are key factors influencing the type of pump required. We recognize the diversity of fluids encountered in industrial settings and provide pumps designed to handle various materials, from water and chemicals to slurries and abrasive substances.
     

  • Power requirements and availability
    Efficient pump operation hinges on aligning power requirements with the available resources. At Yukon Pump Ltd, we acknowledge the importance of evaluating power specifications and ensuring compatibility with the site's power infrastructure. Energy-efficient pump models, tailored to the specific power constraints of industrial facilities, are readily available to optimize performance and minimize operational costs.
     

  • Pump mechanics
    Examining a pump's mechanics is fundamental to guaranteeing its reliability and longevity. Factors such as pump type (centrifugal, positive displacement, etc.), maintenance requirements, and ease of repair contribute to the system's overall efficiency. 

You do not have to worry about getting confused with Yukon Pump Ltd; our team is well-versed in the usage and functionality of all pumps and can help you choose the right product for your needs.

Maintenance Tips for Industrial Equipment

Downtime is a peril no business wants to encounter, whether in logistics, oil and gas or food and beverage industrial equipment. Unanticipated downtime can cause considerable monetary losses and even take your business's competitive edge.
 

Heavy machinery is the basis of operations for companies in many industries. Without the equipment, everything comes to a standstill. Proactive upkeep of heavy equipment helps dodge unplanned downtime, prevent severe workplace mishaps, and extend the life of your machinery.
 

Here are some tips to help you maintain your business’s industrial equipment.

  • Review the equipment manual thoroughly:
    First, read the equipment usage instructions for each industrial pump. Equipment manuals provide guidelines for keeping the equipment in the prime operational state, including routine maintenance.
     

  • Follow a maintenance timetable:
    If your industrial equipment is well-maintained, unplanned downtime will not occur. So, it is important to undertake maintenance per the schedule proactively. Why wait for some part to break? Follow a supervision schedule to enjoy optimal machinery performance. Monitor the Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF) for insights into the performance and dependability of your equipment.
     

  • Keep proper records:
    Along with performing maintenance, it is essential to keep upkeep records. This helps map the exact date when the repairs/maintenance occurred and gives information about the parts needing replacement soon. These records also indicate when equipment costs too much in repairs and should be replaced.
     

  • Keep equipment clean and accessible:
    Routine equipment cleaning is an important maintenance task often overlooked. Ensure you use manufacturer-recommended cleaning methods. Also, remember to keep the machinery easy to access so it can be inspected, cleaned, and serviced on time.
     

  • Use technology for tracking:
    There is no replacement for pen-and-paper notes, but an online checklist is best for industrial equipment maintenance tracking. Advanced tracking tools can help track and notify you of the maintenance program's due date. Nowadays, business management systems have such trackers embedded. Use them for proper equipment upkeep.
     

  • Ensure regular lubrication monitoring:
    Most industrial pumps require lubrication to minimize friction among the machinery's moving parts. However, this lubrication is not permanent. A vital maintenance procedure is to routinely monitor the lubrication levels and assess the oil for any signs of contamination. For instance, if particles are present in the oil, it’s essential to identify the cause and rectify the issue.
     

  • Conduct machine calibration:
    For pumps in high-precision applications, machine calibration should be part of your standard maintenance routine. This guarantees that every component functions within its designated specifications. The calibration frequency varies based on the machinery’s type and application.
     

  • Regular safety feature checks:
    It’s critical to examine the safety mechanisms incorporated in many industrial pumps frequently. This encompasses reviewing alert indicators and emergency stop controls during maintenance. Testing these safety measures is crucial; malfunctioning could cause severe mishaps and harm.
     

  • Monitor for wear and tear:
    Conducting daily equipment inspections before use can avert unexpected failures. Additionally, it’s advisable to plan comprehensive internal evaluations of industrial pumps. This should involve thoroughly inspecting gears and belts to identify any deteriorating components or experiencing irregular friction that needs attention.
     

  • Maintain a stock of spare parts:
    It is beneficial to have a selection of fundamental spare parts readily available for emergencies. These could range from simple items like filters and oil for your pumps to more complex components such as replacement motors, belts, and other crucial parts.
     

  • Adhere to machinery specifications:
    Each industrial pump is designed with specific operational limits, including maximum allowable temperatures and pressures. It’s vital to know these specifications for each piece of equipment and ensure they are not exceeded to avoid safety hazards and potential damage to the machinery’s efficiency and structural integrity.
     

  • Comprehensive training for employees:
    Proper employee training in using your company’s industrial machinery can significantly reduce the risk of equipment damage. Training should cover safe and correct operations and educate workers on identifying signs of malfunction for timely intervention.
     

  • Proper storage of equipment:
    Industrial pumps used sporadically and stored between uses should be maintained carefully to extend their service life. The machinery should be stored in a protected, cool, and dry environment. Additionally, it’s advisable to operate the equipment periodically to ensure the internal components remain well-lubricated.
     

  • Collaborate with a skilled service provider:
    One of the top maintenance recommendations is to partner with a reliable service provider to ensure optimal care for your equipment. Choose a company with extensive expertise in this type of equipment and a proven history of providing superior service to its clientele.
