ABET 24/7 Field Service Technicians traveled to location, diagnosed the leak and discovered the root cause of the problem
Industry: Power Generation Equipment
Type of Equipment: End-Suction Centrifugal Pump
Brand of Equipment: Peerless Pumps
Problem: Pump was leaking from the volute of the pump.
Solution & Service Performed: Due to operating temperatures of below 0 degrees Fahrenheit, the iron components of the pump slightly shrunk from the original size. BRRRRRRRR! When this happened, the bolts that were once tight, began to loosen which separated the two faces that were once snugly bolted together. Our guys tightened the bolts and the pump is now running with no problems.
