Pump acceptance testing – now online

Wednesday, February 21st, 2018 von admin

At this year’s Ifat trade fair (14 to 18 May 2018) the KSB Group is introducing a trade fair novelty to its visitors: the newly created online pump acceptance testing. When purchasing large pumps, hydraulic acceptance tests and a final inspection are an essential proof of compliance with the guaranteed values. In the past, customers always had to travel to the test facility to witness their purchased pump being tested.

As testing usually takes place at the manufacturing plant, this is a time-consuming and costly trip, especially for international projects or those that are far away. Online acceptance testing is KSB’s answer, developed as a process enabling reliable and standard-compliant pump acceptance testing. The tests conducted are transmitted live via a specially protected part of the Internet. In an online meeting between pump manufacturer and customer, the customer can see the live camera view of the pump in the test facility as well as the characteristic curve measurement during testing.

Large pumps, such as those operated in the

  • oil and gas,
  • power generation and
  • water industries

perform a crucial role and represent a significant investment by the owner. Safeguarding these assets and maintaining efficiency and reliability are vital for the continued productivity of the application. Very often, when it comes to maintenance, the choice is between the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) or an independent service provider (ISP), but John Murray describes here that it is possible to have the best of both worlds.

Sulzer doubles capacity of high voltage testing to improve repair times

Thursday, January 11th, 2018 von admin

Performance testing of high voltage motors and generators is usually carried out to determine benchmark data following a major repair. However, increasingly, customers are requiring this information as part of a problem diagnosis or to verify performance figures for a component when its essential data has been lost. To keep up with growing demand, Sulzer has made a major investment at its Falkirk Service Center (Scotland) that will enable the test-bed load capacity to be doubled.

Until now, the Falkirk site has used a 1,250 kVA diesel generator that operates through two step-up transformers to provide 3.3 – 11 kV via high voltage switchgear to the test cell. This setup ensures a reliable power source for testing that is not affected by local demand on the power grid. The new investment will add a 2,000 kVA and a 700 kVA generator to the site that will be synchronized through a 4000A LV switchboard, as well as a new 2,500 kVA transformer, that will double the capacity of the test bed.
