How Does a Pump Motor Work?
For starters, what’s the difference between a motor and a pump? A motor or drive is typically a device which converts electricity into mechanical energy for the purposes of moving objects or doing work. A pump is really just a specialized type of motor. Pumps are designed to help transfer fluids from one location to another, usually through a series of connected pipes. In industrial settings, heavy-duty pumps are utilized to move a wide variety of fluid materials and products, including water, oil, petroleum, natural gas, chemicals, wastewater, sludge, slurry, and more.
Two of the most common pump designs for industrial applications are positive displacement pumps and centrifugal pumps. There are many varieties of positive displacement pumps, including diaphragm or pneumatic pumps, hydraulic pumps, gear pumps, peristaltic pumps, lobe pumps, and piston pumps. Centrifugal pumps, on the other hand, are a design of dynamic pump which is the most commonly used around the world. Centrifugal pumps make use of spinning impellers to accelerate the flow of a fluid, and also increase the fluid’s pressure.
What Can Lead to Pump Motor Failure?
Industrial pumps and commercial pumps are designed to be heavy-duty devices, but even the best-designed and best-engineered pumps can eventually develop some problems over time. But with proper attention and maintenance, some of these issues can often be prevented as well. Here are five of the most common issues we see with electric pump motors at AES:
Excessive heat is one of the most common factors leading to premature pump motor failure. Running a pump motor at excessive heat conditions can easily cut the life of your electric motor in half, or worse. Maintaining your pump within prescribed heat levels will greatly extend your pump’s longevity.
Just as is the case with other motor applications, pump motors have to be maintained for lubricant levels on a regular basis. Too little lubrication results in excessive friction and wear, while too much lubrication can blow a seal. You also need to make sure you’re using the right lubricant for your particular motor.
Moisture and humidity can wreak havoc on any electric motor, and this is even more of a potential threat for a pump motor which is used to move fluids. Moisture intrusion will shorten the life of any electric motor or pump.
Other contaminant infiltration
Unless your pump motor is hermetically sealed, then dust intrusion can be a constant threat. Abrasive particles like sand can quickly wear down a motor’s contact components. Other intruding chemicals or other contaminants can also help bring a pump motor to a grinding halt, if left unchecked.
Power supply issues
Sometimes heat, lubrication, and contaminant intrusion really aren’t the issue. Sometimes the issue with your pump motor may simply be a result of an improper power supply. All it takes is one significant power surge to essentially fry your motor. For this reason, it’s very important that you manage and regulate your pump power supply properly.
