Just imagine a pump that had no couplings, screws, linings and so many other parts and components. Aside of the fact that it would be rendered pretty much useless, it will very well and dramatically fall apart. No doubt about it, surely. Couplings Ontario plants must by now be servicing hundreds of other plants, factories, yards, pipelines, even residential backyards for so many different reasons.
Pumps can be likened to the heart and lungs of your physical body. Take a good look at the heart, if you dare to. You will notice that attached to the heart are valves and other vessels. These components if you will work hand in glove with the heart. And the heart cannot function effectively without the support of its backroom staff if you will. And further, there can be the usual warning lights and symptoms forewarning the human mind that something appears to be out of place.
And should such warnings not be addressed in good time, well, you need no further imagining to know what could happen next. So it goes with the well-functioning pump. In order for an industrial pump to be firing on all cylinders if you will, it is of course, necessary for all other parts and components to be in the right place and the right time, each to its own functions, and working properly all of the time.
All it takes is just one minute for a screw to loosen and place the entire operation in jeopardy. Disappointingly, it is not always possible to notice such early warning signs owing to such delicate parts being hidden deep in the innards of the pump vessel. But through regular maintenance and inspections, such hidden surprises can be avoided.
