Slurry Pump Maintenance

Slurry Pump Maintenance

Slurry Pump Maintenance

I am a maintenance engineer intern. My first project is to improve our preventitive maintenance program here at our facility. I am focusing on 10 slurry pumps in particular. Most of them are Warman, a few are Galigher and range in sizes (6/4 DAH, 350SL, 3X4). Our slurry consistancy is made of mainly a silica and paper pulp mixture. My main concern is proper preventative maintenance practices. More specifically, more objective instructions. For example, what is the right temperature for running bearings? How often should we grease the bearings running at 24 hrs?

I understand this data varies depending on bearing frame size, bearing rpm, etc. I have done a lot of research on warman pump manuals, but lack the data and information that I am looking for. I am really hoping to get some feedback and some personal experience on this information.
Any info on preventative maintenance for warman pumps will help.


RE: Slurry Pump Maintenance

Contacting Warman pumps and asking for the preventative maintenance information would help as well.
