Buying a new industrial pump is a huge investment, and it is important to do your homework before putting money down on a new pump. Here are some factors you should think about before making a purchase:
This determines how fast a pump can pump a specific amount of liquid (gallon or liter) per minute. This is the most basic measurement of the effectiveness of the pump.
The inlet size determines how fast a liquid can be sucked in and displaced. The bigger the inlet, the faster liquid can be processed through the pump.
Most industrial pumps are for water, but some pumps such as pumps for waste water treatment, crude oil or almost any other liquid, have specific requirements when handling that type of liquid. Be sure to select a pump from a vendor who is familiar with that particular industry to make sure that these requirements are met.
The maximum head for pumps is the longest distance (in terms of height) that a pump will be able to move a liquid. You need to have a pump that has a maximum head that is higher than the height where you intend to pump that liquid.
The brand and motor quality are important factors to consider when selecting a new industrial pump. Do the research and read reviews on the pump to make sure you make a good selection.
No matter how reliable an industrial pump may be, a day will come when it will break down, or require routine preventative maintenance. For this reason, you should consider the availability of a nearby industrial pump repair service. An excellent industrial pump repair service should have a fast response time and be available to provide service at any time: 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week, 365 days a year.
