A major international chemical manufacturing plant in Warrington suffered a severe coupling and pump shaft failure following works completed by another company on site.
This fire pump is critical to client’s operations as it provided the foam enhancement for high-risk areas.
Pure Power identified the root cause of failure to be an incorrectly specified coupling, which was undersized and not suitable for the high-power transmission required for these 3000 USGPM pumps.
A new, fully-listed-for-fire application coupling was sourced, the pump shaft repaired and rebuilt, laser aligned and fully commissioned in four days.
Pure Power’s requisite speed and high quality of workmanship produced a great result which the client was delighted with.
