The Hydraulic Institute (HI) has published a new guidebook titled Reliability of Pumping Equipment. The publication provides reliability insights such as expected reliability levels, monitoring approaches, and methods of improvement. Information also includes how to identify satisfactory operation for different pump types, classes of service, and importance.
- Provides an overview of initial equipment selection relative to the product life expectation as well as installation recommendations that will improve system reliability
- Classifies methods of quantifying reliability using computer maintenance management systems and identifies how to improve the reliability of bad actor systems
- Identifies how to achieve optimal life of pumping equipment when it is correctly designed, sized, and selected for a given application and operated (and maintained) as specified
- Categorizes solutions for analyzing, improving, and replacing existing equipment as well as defining the importance of life cycle cost analysis for new equipment
The Hydraulic Institute says its guidebook on pump reliability and maintenance is a good for those with an interest in improving the cost, safety, and reliability of pumps and related equipment.
"This guide is a great tool for reliability professionals looking to establish upfront objectives, life expectations for pumps, expand on existing knowledge of reliability, quantify and document current reliability metrics and ultimately improve plant reliability, " says HI Technical Director, Pete Gaydon.
The guidebook is available in the HI eStore. HI members receive a 25 percent discount.
