Our pump specialist Tom Mitchell, above, is busy at present with a variety of pump repairs. The latest involves a large, horizontal split-case water pump.
As well as the routine repair, which involves a thorough cleaning and replacement of the bearings and gaskets, he will be modifying the mechanical seal arrangement in a bid to improve it.
All the critical internal dimensions will be measured and any re-work to bring them back to tolerance will be undertaken in our machine shop. We will then balance the impeller to ensure longevity, particularly within the bearings.
