Pumps send messages to their monitoring systems notifying them of anything abnormal like a drop in fluid pressure, fluid volume or motor amperage draws. Sometimes companies can provide visual feedback on municipal pumps that are above the water. These issues include leaks, vibration, noise, locked or broken shafts. Submersible pumps need to be removed from service to identify the cause.
When a pump comes to CMT, it is disassembled and evaluated for wear. CMT inspects all clearances to manufacturer recommendations, impeller tolerance issues, voltage, housing, seals and shafts. Submersible pumps get a complete motor evaluation.
Once a pump is repaired and reassembled at CMT, it undergoes rigorous testing before it’s ready to be sent out back in the field.
