SCREW PUMP CLEARANCE ..

SCREW PUMP CLEARANCE ..

(OP)
HOW CAN WE CHECK THE INTERNAL CLEARANCES OF SCREW PUMP (ONE DRIVE SCREW & TWO IDLER SCREWS)??

RE: SCREW PUMP CLEARANCE ..

Ask the manufacturer.

It is a capital mistake to theorise before one has data. Insensibly one begins to twist facts to suit theories, instead of theories to suit facts. (Sherlock Holmes - A Scandal in Bohemia.)

I MEAN THE COMMON METHODS...

RE: SCREW PUMP CLEARANCE ..

There is no need to shout, you were heard the first time.
You can always check the operating / service manual or do an internet search.

If this is, say, a Colfax (IMO) product, I'm willing to bet you won't get them to tell you.

RE: SCREW PUMP CLEARANCE ..

The only accepted way to evaluate the pump's internal condition is to _measure_ the process fluid flow under operating conditons, and compare it with the pump's performance when new.

Disassembling the pump is the wrong way to start.
