Hydraulic Sources of Vibration in Centrifugal Pump Systems
Keith Menges, ITT Plant Performance Services
Wednesday, March 13, 2013.
The subject of hydraulic phenomena that occur in centrifugal pumps and their corresponding vibration characteristics will be presented. The operating principles of centrifugal pumps including performance curves and the relationship of operating point to vibration severity will be reviewed. The root causes of various hydraulic phenomena will then be shown by examining the behavior of the pumping system. Multiple case histories will be presented to illustrate the various phenomena and their origins. The objective of the presentation is to provide knowledge of the root causes and potential corrective actions for hydraulic induced vibration in centrifugal pumps. Questions from the audience regarding past or current pump vibration issues are encouraged.
Keith is the Program Manager of Reliability Services for ITT's Plant Performance Service division, part of ITT Goulds Pumps in Seneca Falls, NY. He has been employed at ITT Goulds Pumps since 2007 and has held several positions within the company. Previously as an Application Engineer for the Monitoring and Control product line, and then as a Warranty Service Engineer until joining the Plant Performance division in 2012. Keith holds a B.S. in Engineering Technology and M.S. in Professional Studies from the Rochester Institute of Technology and is a Certified Maintenance and Reliability Professional and Category III Vibration Analyst.
