Self-Priming Pump Maintenance Method

Self-priming pumps are commonly used industrial equipment for pumping mixtures such as gas-containing liquids or slurries. Due to the harsh environment used by self-priming pumps, regular maintenance is required to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and extend the life of the equipment. This article will introduce the maintenance method of self-priming electric water pumps.

Self-priming pump maintenance method

First of all, the maintenance of self-priming pumps should start with daily maintenance. During the operation of the self-priming pump, it is necessary to keep the equipment clean and remove dirt and impurities in time. Before closing the self-priming pump, all the liquid in the pipeline should be drained, and the residue and particles in the liquid should be removed. If the equipment has not been used for a long time, all the liquid inside the self-priming pump and the pipeline should be drained to avoid corrosion caused by the stagnation of liquid inside the equipment.

Secondly, the seals of the self-priming pump should be maintained. The seal is one of the most vulnerable parts in a self-priming pump, and its damage will lead to a decrease in the performance of the pump, which in turn affects the efficiency of the entire production line. Therefore, regularly check the degree of wear of the seals and replace them in time. In addition, seals should be lubricated regularly to maintain their proper working condition.

Third, the motor of the self-priming pump also needs maintenance. During use, attention should be paid to the working status of the motor, and the electrical and mechanical properties of the motor should be checked regularly. If the motor is found to be abnormal or faulty, it should be repaired or replaced in time.

Finally, the maintenance of the self-priming pump also needs to pay attention to the choice of liquid. During use, the appropriate liquid should be selected and the use of unqualified liquid should be avoided. The use of unacceptable fluids can cause corrosion and damage to the interior of the equipment, resulting in reduced pump performance.

To sum up, the maintenance of the self-priming pump is an important measure to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and prolong the life of the equipment. Routine maintenance, seal care, motor maintenance, and fluid selection all need attention. Regular maintenance can effectively reduce the failure rate and maintenance cost of equipment and improve production efficiency.
