Q – How long should a chemical pump last?
A – Crest Pumps are built with a design life of 25 years but the life of a pump can vary considerably depending upon the application it has been built for. The 3 most important factors to consider are:
- Material compatibility of the pump components with the corrosive liquid being pumped
- A well-designed pipework system that will maximise efficiency and prevent shutdowns
- Regular preventive maintenance as per the manual to replace wearing parts
Your chosen pump supplier should have the knowledge and experience to recommend material suitability. A good pump supplier should also be willing and able to help guide you and prevent common pump faults from occurring. And finally, regular maintenance can be planned with the aid of the pump’s manual, along with smart monitoring devices.
