Key Reasons to Choose SIMSITE® Impellers and Casing Rings
SIMSITE® products DO NOT corrode in Seawater and many other fluids; therefore, the efficiency and performance of the SIMSITE® Impeller & Casing Rings will not deteriorate over time.
When the metallic pump parts begin to wear from corrosion, efficiency and performance drop drastically. This drop in efficiency and performance not only has a significant impact on energy consumption but also increases the cost of maintenance. The life of the pump can be reduced to months instead of years as originally intended.
SIMSITE® Impellers are designed with state of the art CFD Techniques to maximize efficiency and they are engineered to operate at the Best Efficiency Point (BEP).
Because SIMSITE® Impellers are 100% machined on the inside as well as the outside, the SIMSITE® Structural Composite Impellers are optimized using CFD engineering techniques for maximizing the performance and efficiency in which the pump is operating in the field.
It is an all too common problem – You purchased a pump for one specific performance, yet when you put the pump into service in your plant or ship, the pump operates at another point entirely different from the original design point of the pump because of your system requirements. In addition to being very costly and inefficient, when you operate the pump away from the original design point or best efficiency point (BEP), it causes a multitude of problems. These problems include excessive noise and vibration of the pump, shaft oscillation, cavitation, and premature wear, and failure of the mechanical seals, bearings, rings, sleeves, and impellers. In extreme cases, the pump shaft will break right behind the impeller from the excessive radial forces that occur when you operate a pump away from the original design point.
Operating a pump away from the Best Efficiency Point (BEP) has a detrimental effect on pump efficiency and longevity, and wastes both energy and money The larger the pump, the more energy, and money are wasted!
Worn pump impellers cost money in energy and extra maintenance expenses! Fortunately, these problems can be easily resolved by installing SIMSITE® Structural Composite Pumps and/or SIMSITE® Impellers & Rings which have been “engineered” for your system requirements. Not only is the efficiency of the pump enhanced, but also the reliability and longevity of the complete pump is substantially improved and the maintenance costs are eliminated!
