Kirloskar Pumps Distributors

Pumps are one of the most universally used equipment to boost pressure or lift fluid in households, industries and emergency situations. We use a range of different pumps for different types of work such as electric-driven pumps, rotary pumps, multi-stage pumps, etc. As leading Kirloskar Pumps Distributors and experts in pumping, we talk about all the do’s and don’ts of the pumping world that you as a pump owner need to be aware of.

Do’s and Don’ts of Electric Driven Pumps:

Do’s ––

• Have all the proper control devices in place before starting the pump.

• Always keep the installation and operation manual for the pump, motor and control panel handy for instructions on proper use.

• Secure all the electrical connections and avoid having loose connections as this could be dangerous for operators.

• Secure all the piping connections properly to avoid leakages in the pumping system enabling it to perform optimally.

• As soon as the water supply begins, make sure the direction of rotation is correct.

Don’ts ––

• Don’t allow any unsupervised operation of the pump, especially by inexperienced personnel.

• Do not ignore the safety and health precautions as mentioned in the manual provided by the supplier.

• Do not continue to run the pump despite unusual vibrations and sounds.

• Don’t continue to run it if the pump is drawing extraordinary power.

• Don’t make the cable accessible to unauthorised personnel.

Do’s and Don’ts of Rotary Pumps:

• Keep the suction lift at a minimum to support all the piping as well as hoses as needed.

Do’s ––

• Fill the tanks and pumps with water before operating the pump.

• During winter or freezing season, drain the pump of all water to avoid freezing and subsequent damage. Remove maximum water by rotating the pump end while draining.

Don’ts ––

• Never lift the pump with suction or discharge hoses still attached.

• Don’t run the engine at a faster or slower pace than recommended.

• Don’t stop or start the pump while in a high-speed or engaged state.

Do’s and Don’t of Multi-Stage Pumps

Do’s ––

Don’ts ––

• Don’t carry out any repair or maintenance work while the pump is still hot or running.

• Don’t operate the unit with the discharge lines obstructed or the valve closed.
