Basic Pump Installation and Maintenance: Industry-Recognized Methods for Long-Term Pump Reliability and Performance

Date: July 25, 2024
Time: 1:00pm EST
PDH Credits: 1.0


This webinar covers the basics of pump installation and maintenance, focusing on ensuring efficient, reliable, and safe operation. Participants will learn industry-recognized methods to install and maintain key components, minimizing downtime and extending the pumps' service life. Key installation topics include pump location, foundation, baseplate/soleplate installation, grouting, system piping, pump-driver alignment, and lift (clearance) setting for vertical pumps. The session will also discuss basic maintenance practices, including reactive, predictive, and preventive maintenance, with a focus on bearings, packing, seals, and vibration.

Ideal for professionals, this webinar aims to enhance participants' understanding of pump installation and effective maintenance practices. The session will conclude with a concise summary of key insights, followed by a Q&A session to provide additional clarification.

Learning Objectives

  • Learn industry-recognized methods and considerations for pump installation, including ideal pump location, foundation, baseplate/sole plate, grouting, system piping, alignment, and lift (clearance) setting for vertical pumps. 
  • Utilize maintenance practice metrics such as mean time between failure (MTBF), mean time between repair (MTBR), and availability to improve maintenance procedures, thereby minimizing downtime and extending the service life of pumps.
  • Understand the distinctions among the three basic maintenance practices: Reactive, Preventive, and Predictive. Grasp their application according to the criticality of the pump, failure patterns, and manufacturer recommendations.
  • Gain insights into essential preventive maintenance practices, including monitoring seal leakage, adjusting packing glands, checking vibration levels, inspecting lubrication systems and bearings, and performing regular inspections, all aimed at ensuring long-term pump reliability and performance.
