GENERAL
1.1
 
This booklet covers instructions for all Models of VARAT Ring Casing Self-Priming Pump1.2
 
When the pumps are received sometime before the use of the pump it should be located in dry place. Thecoupling should be rotated once in a month to prevent pilling of bearing surfaces.1.3
 
To avoid jamming of the rotating components, do not keep the pump idle for long period. If so required, put some quantity of preservative – washable with water and rotate the shaft several times so that it gives athin film on the internal faces.1.4
 
To avoid damage to the components, select proper size of tools to open plugs, bolts, nuts etc.
2.0 INSTALLATION
2.1
LOCATION
The pump should be located as near the liquid source as possible. This will minimise the suction lift and pump will give better performance.Ample space should be provided on all the sides so that the pump can be inspected while in operation andcan be serviced conveniently whenever required.
2.2
 
FOUNDATION
The foundation should be sufficiently substantial to absorb any vibration and to form a permanent rigidsupport for the base plate. This is important in maintaining the alignment of a direct connected unit. Aconcrete foundation on a solid base is advisable. Foundation bolts of the proper size should be embeddedin the concrete located by a drawing or template. A pipe sleeve about two and one-half diameter larger than the bolt should be used to allow movement for the final position of the foundation bolts.
2.3 ALIGNMENT
Pumps and drivers that are supplied by the manufacturers, mounted on a common base plate are accuratelyaligned before despatch. All base plates are flexible to some extent and alignments are likely to bedisturbed during transit to some extent and therefore must not be relied upon to maintain the factoryalignment. Re-alignment is necessary after the complete unit has been leveled on the foundation and againafter the grout has set and foundation bolts have been tightened. The alignment must be checked after theunit is piped up and re-checked periodically.2.4
LEVELLING
When the unit is received with the pump and driver mounted on the base plate, it should be placed on thefoundation and the coupling halves disconnected. The coupling should not be reconnected until allalignment operations have been completed. The base plate must be supported evenly and placed closed tothe foundation bolt. In each case, the supports should directly under the part base plate carrying the greatestweight and spaced closely enough to give uniform support. A gap of about 25 to 50 mm should be allowed between the base plate and foundation of grouting. Supporting will be such that it will not be distorted or sprung by the uneven distribution of the weight. Adjust the wedges until the shafts of the pump and driver are in level. Check the coupling faces, suction and discharge flanges for the horizontal or vertical position by means of spirit level.
2.5 FLEXIBLE COUPLING
A flexible coupling will not compensate for misalignment of the pump and driver shafts. The purpose of the flexible coupling is to compensate for temperature changes and to permit the movement of the shaftswithout interference with each other while transmitting power from the driver to the pump.

MISALIGNMENT
There are two types of misalignment between the Pump shaft and the driver shaft:(a)
 
Angular misalignment: Shafts with axis concentric but not parallel.
(b)
 
Parallel misalignment: Shafts with axis Parallel but not concentric. The unit can then be granted byworking soft concrete under the edges.
 
The faces of the coupling hardens should be spaced for enough apart so that they cannot strike each other when the drive rotor is moved hard over towards the pump. Due allowance should be made for wear of thethrust Bearings. A minimum gap of 3 to 4 mm should be maintained. The necessary tools for approximately checking the alignment of the flexible coupling are a straight edge and a taper gauge or a setof feeler gauge. For pin bush coupling disconnect coupling halves before proceeding with alignment. Acheck for angular alignment is made by inserting the taper gauge or feelers at four points between thecoupling faces and comparing the distance between the faces at four points spaced at 90degree intervals around the coupling, the unit will be in angular alignment when the measurement showthat the coupling faces are the same distance apart at all point (FIG 1). A check for parallel alignment ismade by placing a straight edge across both coupling ring at the top bottom and at both sides. The unit will be in parallel alignment when the straight edge rests evenly on the coupling ring at all positions. Care must be taken to have the straight edge parallel to the axis of the shaft (FIG-2). Angular and parallelmisalignments are corrected by means of shims under the motor mounting feet. After each change it isnecessary to re-check the alignment of the coupling halves. It should not be necessary to adjust the shims,if used, under the pump.
2.7
 
GROUTING
When the alignment is correct, the foundation bolts should be tightened evenly but not too firmly. Workingsoft concrete under the edges can then grout the unit. Foundation bolts should not be fully tightened untilthe grout is hardened, usually 48 hours after pouring.
