Here's what you can expect from one of our precision repairs.
As an OEM-certified repair facility, Crane Engineering has a proven history of meeting and exceeding the most stringent requirements and standards set forth by manufacturers for pump rebuilds and repair.
When the maintenance manager at an ethanol plant noticed reduced flow and increased vibration from a bank of 4 vertical turbines feeding the cooling towers, he knew it was time to consider a rebuild.
A look inside the tank revealed that after years of service, the pumps were corroded and rusted. Certainly in need of repair.
Because preventive maintenance is a cornerstone of this ethanol plant's maintenance plan, they decided to have the pump refurbished as soon as possible.
The Crane Engineering Service Team took each pump, one at a time, to the Kimberly Service Center. Inspections revealed severe corrosion, pitting due to cavitation, missing suction strainers, and shaft and bearing wear.
Crane's Service Pros were able to re-use much of the existing components, like the discharge head and columns, and supplemented the remainder of the precision rebuild with new components and paint. The pumps were furnished with upgraded components, like bearings, to take advantage of technology advancements since the pumps' installation in 2008.
