Vertical Pump Motor Reliability

IMC-2017 Learning Session 33:02
by Tod Baer, Minnkota Power Cooperative

Are your vertical pump/motors operating smoothly, reliable (10+ years MTBF) and not impacting the O&M budget with unplanned failures?

If the answer is yes, than great you’ve found the solution! If not, this presentation will provide information on the use of vibration analysis to help understand and create vertical pump/motor reliability. Discoveries and lessons learned over the past 25 years to solve vertical pump/motor problems will be presented.

A typical scope of work, inspection forms and assembly forms for a multi-stage vertical pump will be provided to those attending. The goal of this presentation is to think vertical and to help obtain a 10+ year MTBF on vertical pumps and motors.
