Precautions for installation and use of twin-screw pumps

Publish Time: 2023-10-31
The twin-screw pump is a common fluid transportation equipment with the advantages of compact structure, smooth operation, and stable flow. When installing and using a twin-screw pump, you need to pay attention to the following issues:
Installation site selection: The twin-screw pump should be installed on a solid flat surface and avoid use on soft or rugged sites. Also, make sure the site has enough space for future maintenance and upkeep.
Selection of installation tools: During the installation process, use appropriate tools, such as wrenches, screwdrivers, etc., to avoid using inappropriate tools that may cause equipment damage or personal injury.
Pump positioning: During installation, place the pump in the correct location and ensure that it is properly connected to pipes and other equipment. At the same time, ensure that the inlet and outlet directions of the pump are correct to avoid poor fluid flow or equipment damage.
Starting of the pump: Before starting the pump, make sure that all valves are closed, and then slowly open the inlet valve to allow the fluid to fill the pump chamber. After that, slowly open the outlet valve to allow the pump to operate normally. If you start the pump directly at full speed, it may cause excessive impact on the equipment and cause damage to the equipment.
Pump maintenance: During use, the operation of the pump should be checked regularly, including checking the wear of bearings, seals and other components, cleaning the pump cavity, and replacing lubricating oil. If an abnormality is discovered, it should be dealt with in time to avoid equipment failure or safety accidents.
Routine maintenance and upkeep
In order to keep the twin-screw pump in good operating condition and extend its service life, routine maintenance and upkeep is required. Here are some suggestions:
Check the main components: Regularly check the main components of the pump, such as bearings, gears, etc., to ensure their normal operation. If components are found to be severely worn or damaged, they should be replaced in time.
Clean the pump cavity: Clean the pump cavity regularly to remove accumulated impurities and dirt. This helps keep the fluid clean and extends the life of the equipment.
Change the lubricating oil: Change the lubricating oil of the pump regularly to ensure good lubrication of bearings and other moving parts. At the same time, ensure that the oil level is appropriate to avoid too much or too little lubricating oil causing poor operation of the equipment.
Check the seals: Regularly check the pump seals, such as packing, mechanical seal, etc., to ensure that their sealing performance is good. If the seal is found to be worn or damaged, it should be replaced in time.
Preventive maintenance plan: Develop a detailed preventive maintenance plan, including regular inspections, cleaning, lubrication and other maintenance work. At the same time, the plan must be strictly implemented to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and extend its service life.
Record maintenance records: Record the maintenance records of the equipment, including maintenance time, maintenance content, replacement parts and other information. This helps track the maintenance history and maintenance results of the equipment and provides a reference for future maintenance work.
In short, correct installation and use as well as daily maintenance and upkeep are the keys to ensuring the good operation of the twin-screw pump and extending its service life. During use, it is necessary to pay close attention to the operating status of the equipment and perform regular maintenance and upkeep work to ensure the normal operation of the equipment and the smooth progress of the production process.
