Best Practices for Increasing the Lifespan of Submersible Pumps

Submersible pumps are unlike any other type of pump, as they’re entirely immersed within the fluid they transport. Lengthening their lifespans requires understanding the applications they often use and how they operate. Submersible pumps are designed so that the pump and its motor remain fully submerged within a processing solution or other liquid, which requires that they remain sealed. The impermeable nature of this enclosure surrounding the motor protects these pumps from failure. To keep submersible pumps operating properly in harsh conditions, certain best practices should be followed to ensure they last as long as possible.

What are Heat Exchanger Plates Used For?

Sometimes referred to as a plate heat exchanger, plates used to facilitate the indirect transfer of heat between fluids have been around for about a century. The first ones were invented in 1923 by Dr. Richard Seligman. Heat exchanger plates were introduced to pasteurize milk at high temperatures for shorter periods, which has since become the standard method for pasteurizing milk. Unlike other heat exchangers, plates expose fluids to considerably more surface area, which speeds up temperature changes. Now used globally for multiple other applications that include pasteurization, heat exchanger plates have since developed to the point that more recent models are made with thin metal plates designed via computers, with certain types even utilizing laser technology.

Seven Reasons for a Vertical Pump System Design

Spacing saving vertical pump system design reduces footprint in university’s mechanical room.

A major North American university needed a new science building to address the space requirements based on evolving educational needs. The new laboratory building was constructed to LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) standards. An advanced mechanical room was required to ensure the building would operate sustainably and efficiently. The engineering firm faced the challenge of designing a multi-million-dollar system that would adjust to new requirements in terms of flexibility, while maintaining a small footprint. The system, consisting of six layers of piping and 16 pumps, required a specific sequence of installation, and had to meet specific seismic mounting and vibration requirements.

Mission Communications SCADA Webinars Free

Mission Communications hosts free, informational webinars every Wednesday.  Everyone interested in learning more about the fully pre-packaged, cost-effective, turnkey SCADA is encouraged to join.

These interactive webinars are designed for users to ask live questions about any monitoring or Mission subject they would like addressed. The focus of the webinars will vary week-to-week, with the general subject matter repeating on a month-to-month basis. Customers are welcome to ask questions about monitoring and Mission-related topics even if they are not covered by the topic of the week. When signing up for the webinar, GotoMeeting software will be automatically loaded to the desktop, laptop, or mobile device. Users can use the microphone and speakers of their device to listen to the audio and ask questions or dial into the toll-free number that is provided at the start of the event.

How did a Chemical Processing Plant Save Nearly 1.8-Million Gallons of Water Annually

Water Waste Reduction Solution

A chemical processing plant wanted to reduce the amount of water it used to process lithium hydroxide used in batteries.  The water waste was linked to packing used on a pump in the hydroxide and limestone slurry process, leaking onto the concrete floor and red clay soil.  Excessive water consumption, constant packing service, EPA concerns and facility structural heaving damage were among the reported issues.
