ROOT CAUSE ANALYSIS OF PUMP FAILURE & RECONDITIONING
The J.A.C. Pump Services root cause analysis procedure identified the issues responsible for pump failure, allowing modifications to be made during refurbishment to maximise future performance.
Design and manufacturing of bespoke modern bearing assemblies.
Manufacture and upgrade/replacement of lineshaft and bushing assemblies.
Manufacture gland sealing arrangement suited to environment and operational factors.
Restoration of casings, impellers and clearances etc.
Ceramic coating of internal cast surfaces. Epoxy coating of external surfaces.
Electric motor overhaul.
Thorough investigation and condition reporting indicated the sequence of events eventually
leading to component failure. Rectification work to ‘engineer out’ these failure modes was
undertaken. Additional improvements and modifications were also made whilst bringing the pump back to
specification, enhancing the future serviceability of an ageing but very capable piece of capital
