Sand pump is an important kind of centrifugal pump in whole solid control equipment, it is popularly used in different oil drilling fields. As the basic item, centrifugal sand pump could be used in both solid control system and slurry oil recovery unit. In this post, we will share some necessary tips about sand pump’s troubleshooting in the working progress.
Sand pump troubleshooting 1: Pay attention to the wearing parts.
For centrifugal sand pump, the wearing parts are impeller, pump casing, mechanical seal, etc. Generally speaking, centrifugal sand pump is mainly used to transport the drilling solids in the drilling fields. For example, we could use sand pump to transport the solids to QJ mud cleaner to separate it as mud and sand; we could use centrifugal sand pump to delivery drilling solids to the surface of KS steel shaker screen, which is the core part of linear motion shale shaker and balanced shale shaker; for vertical cutting dryer, even if we could also use centrifugal sand pump, commonly, we would advise you to choose centrifugal screw pump or screw conveyor to feed the solids into the steel bowl shaker screen of vertical cutting dryer to dry the solids, which could have a good prevent of pollution of the drilling environment.
In the whole working flow, centrifugal sand pump is always playing the basic but important role in the onsite drilling work, therefore, we should pay more attention on those wearing parts. No matter it is pump casing, pump impeller, or mechanical seal, the best way for those troubleshooting is the exchange these wearing parts. Actually, as the original and professional sand pump manufacturer, WestPetro could provide you the full series of sand pump parts for you to exchange. Just feel free to contact us for more details.
Sand pump troubleshooting 2: Please choose the reasonable motor power for your centrifugal sand pump.
Just like other solid control items, the most important part for sand pump is still the motor power. While there are also some difference among sand pump and other solid control item; for example, the motor for high frequency vibrating screens is imported from Italy, which could provide a higher working ability to the whole oil drilling fields. Actually, for QJ mud cleaner and tricanter centrifuge series, the main motor is also imported from Italy. For centrifugal sand pump, the motor is made by China famous manufacturer, and it also could provide a higher working ability in the oil drilling fields.
In WestPetro, with over 16 years development and we have developed over 20 models centrifugal sand pump with different motor powers for choosing. Please find more sand pumps models here to find your reasonable centrifugal sand pumps.
