Henkel offers pump maintenance guide

Henkel North America’s Loctite® brand offers its Loctite Industrial Pumps Rebuild and Maintenance Guide. The two-part guide has been developed to assist maintenance personnel who service industrial centrifugal pumps to achieve pump reliability, longevity and cost reduction.

Part 1: Pump Assembly points out that during the assembly of a pump many simple steps can be taken to help reduce or eliminate common failures and that will also make future disassembly much easier. The Part’s sections discuss proven reliability applications and techniques starting with the bearing housing of a common type of centrifugal pump all the way to the final assembly of the pump casing, attaching the coupling and grouting the base.

Part 2: Pump Repair notes that repairs are a critical element in pump maintenance. Because of the harsh environments and operating parameters, pump parts are subject to wear, erosion, corrosion, leaks and so on. In addition to preventative measures, Loctite brand products can be used to restore pump parts rather than using alternatives such as scrap and replacement or other repair technologies which may be too costly. Henkel says that using Loctite brand products to restore parts is cost-effective because users can be assured of the consistent quality, performance, availability and support it provides.
