Wear and tear is natural, but servicing the equipment regularly can ensure operational reliability and helps maintain performance. Preventive maintenance reduces unplanned stops, increases equipment lifetime and reduces workplace accidents.
For valves, make regular service and maintenance on valves for them to be able to perform optimally. The most cost-effective approach is following a simple preventive maintenance programme, which will prolong the lifespan of valves.
For rotary lobe pumps, the oil level in the gearbox should be checked regularly and re-filled whenever necessary. Check the manual for re-lubrication schedule. Regularly maintain the tank equipment following scheduled service intervals. This will always keep tank equipment in a good condition.
For centrifugal pumps, check to make sure water has been connected so that the shaft seal does not run dry. Dry running will damage the shaft seal and could lead to a damaged pump.
