PUMP LEAKAGE – CASE STUDY
EVENT REPORTED by SAM GUARD®
- SAM GUARD® detected a problem with a temperature increase in a pump which was monitoring the pumps mechanical seal.
- There were three pumps in operation and the issue was with Pump C as the temperature increased from 30°C on 15.08.22 and immediately was alerted.
MAINTENANCE TEAM FINDINGS
Mechanical seals ensures that the pumped media cannot escape, and the issue was prominent for the plant engineers to do an on-site inspection.
On the inspection, the defective seal was replaced.
COST / DOWNTIME AVOIDED
Earlier alert helped with easier planning of repairs by planned communication to the maintenance team and minimal impact on plant operation.
“Excellent alert by SAMGUARD with comparative analysis between the three pumps on site and without it the issue would be noticed much late on site. “
