How Liquid Systems Helped You: Saved by a Snap Ring

Sometimes it might not be obvious HOW Liquid Systems can actually help you or your business save money.  So here I will recount some of the Liquid Systems success stories:

Saved By A Snap Ring: community deep well pump

A customer brought a deep well pump to Liquid Systems.  This particular well pump was one of a few supplying a particular community in Roatan.

The owner of the pump had previously brought it to another place for repair.  This other place told them that parts were not available and nothing could be done for this pump, but maybe to bring it to Liquid Systems “as a last resort”.  Now just to be clear, the other place was not a dedicated pump repair center, but they would have taken on the repair regardless.  Liquid Systems provides free estimates, guaranteed repairs, and ever increasing inventory suited to meet your needs – including factory parts and generic parts.

At Liquid Systems we determined:

  • The electric motor was working AOK, the problem must have therefore been in the pump end.
  • Upon opening up the pump, we found each impeller and diffuser to be completely encrusted in “Roatan Red Clay”, which caused significant drag – the pump would not perform correctly with this extra material on its main “water moving parts”
  • The impellers were not turning correctly together inside the pump housing; the problem was a missing part – a “snap-ring” or retaining ring.  This is a generic part that Liquid Systems keeps in stock in a variety of sizes (metric and standard)

With the pump and motor combination retailing at several thousand $$, they got their deep well pump cleaned up, repaired and tested all for an unusually low 4% of the cost of new!  This included a FREE estimate – the customer decided to go ahead with the repair.

With our knowledge and our preparation – this community saved money…Maybe yours can too!

Bearings, Pullers and Presses

Bearings/Balineras

Rotating equipment typically has bearings in its construction.  Changing the bearings when they are worn, can prevent more catastrophic failures such as burned motors, which keeps your repair/maintenance cost lower.

At Liquid Systems we carry a selection of common bearings of various sizes at competitive prices. We can also order custom bearings or unusual sizes.  For the commonly used ball bearings, we try as much as possible to get double shielded (metal), for longer durability in heavy use conditions.

There is definitely a RIGHT way and a WRONG way to install or remove bearings.

The difference between us and other places is that Liquid Systems has the RIGHT TOOLS.  With our years’ experience operating these tools, we can remove and replace bearings without damaging your equipment, or your new bearing.

 

 

For example: a new bearing should absolutely NOT be beaten onto the shaft.  If you don’t have a bearing press, there isn’t really another great way to do that.

 

Pullers

We have a 10-ton straight jaw puller, and a hammer slide puller to help us with the removals.
