30 HP CENTRIFUGAL PUMP AT A WASTEWATER PLANT
Problem: The customer had to change the seals on the pump every 5 weeks due to overtightened belts. They also experienced high level noise where ear protection was required. Drive End Bearing issues in the motor were a constant problem.
After the Belt Tensioner: Seals and bearings lasted over 4 years. Noise was reduced to a level that a normal conversation could take place in front of the machine. Belt replacement became a non-issue. The plant put the Auto Belt Tensioners on the remainder of their pumps at the facility
