Henkel Whitepaper: Overcoming Four Common Obstacles to Predictive maintenance
Industries across the globe rely on pumping systems for their daily operations. They are essential to any application where material needs to be moved, such as water, oil, petroleum, wastewater, sludge, slurry, chemicals or food. Pumps account for about a quarter of the total motor system energy used in manufacturing, making them the second most frequently used mechanical devise.
The continued and rising use of pumps globally is indicative of how vital they are to industry. A recent market analysis revealed a compound annual growth rate of 5.9 per cent in industrial pump use for the period 2018-2025.1 The Australian Pump Industry Association has estimated that the annual expenditure on pumping equipment is $1 billion annually and is significant to all markets regardless of population or commodity.
Despite being a crucial component of so many industrial applications, pumps are often subject to break down, resulting in production losses and costly repairs. This white paper discusses the three most common causes of pump failure in industrial environment and offers solutions that specifically address these challenges. It also details how efficiency of the pumps can be improved by increasing the Mean Time Between Failures and reducing cost of repairs. Moreover, this paper provides a best practice guideline as to how Industries can improve reliability and safe operation of their pumps through the effective use of the esteemed LOCTITE product range.
