Would you drive a car off the lot without taking it for a test drive first? Probably not. And yet so many end users “drive” their pumps off the lot and expect them to work exactly to specification.
Pump testing is an essential step in evaluating the hydraulic and mechanical performance of a pump before installation. Testing is applicable to new pumps, refurbished pumps or re-engineered pumps and offers insights into equipment reliability and performance and can measure the effect of design changes.
Understanding the power and benefit of aftermarket testing can be confusing. Especially without the knowledge of the various testing capabilities available. Hydro’s testing facility is designed in compliance with Hydraulic Institute Standards and API 610. It’s capable of testing horizontal, vertical and submersible pumps up to 5,000 horsepower. This webinar will focus on aspects of aftermarket testing on problem pumps by diving deep into several case studies where issues were found with a pump prior to assembly—helping save time, headaches and money.
