Safety instructions for users

This pump was designed in compliance with the


standard relating to the safety of the pumps.
x Parts subject to temperature variations and
those where contact with them can be
dangerous must be protected by suitable
devices.
x Safety devices against accidental contact with
moving parts (e.g. coupling guards) must not
be removed from the machine while in
operation.
The pump must never be started without these
coupling guards.

The coupling guard is a safety component


designed for its function; in no case, it must never
be used as a step or other support point.

1.7.3 Integration
The pump may only be integrated into an
assembly intended for operation in explosible
atmospheres, in accordance with EC Directive
94/9 "Explosible atmospheres", if its nameplate
includes the information defined in para. 1.7.2
(pump marking).
If the pump is integrated into a complete system,
with other mechanical or electric components, this
complete system may only be validated if all its
components comply with EC Directive 94/9
"Explosible atmospheres". Only if this requirement
is met will the use of the pump in an explosible

Caution
x Respect the direction of flow of the fluid
(arrows on the pump flanges).
x The diameters of the pipes must not be
smaller
than
the
diameters
of
the
corresponding pump orifices (see data sheet).
x Check that cleaning of all pipes has been
carried out prior to installation of the pump.
x Adjust the piping positioning to ensure it does
not cause any stress on the pump orifices.
x Avoid abrupt changes of piping diameter and
short radius pipe elbows.
x In case of change of diameter, use
asymmetrical (eccentric) convergent transition
pieces in order to avoid the formation of air
pockets in the pipes.
x Install a flow stabilising length before the
suction branch of the pump; it should have the
same diameter as the pump and a length 10 to
20 times the diameter of the pump.
x The flow velocity in the suction line must not
exceed 1m/s.
x The pipe holders and anchoring must be
designed in such a way that thermal expansion
in the pipe system does not have any effect on
the pump flanges.
x Provide for connections for pressure gauges
and for filling of pump with liquid.
x In critical applications, (liquids with impurities)
the system must be protected by a finemeshed strainer.

x

The gate valve in the suction line must be


kept completely open when starting, as well
as during the operation of the pump.
The suction line must be protected and
insulated against heat.
A filter must be installed in the piping in case
of pumping of contaminated liquids.
Its
section must have at least three times the
diameter of the pipe section with a mesh size
equal to 0.1 mm.
Arrange a length of flow stabilising line just
before the pump. In case of changes in
diameter, use an asymmetrical convergent
transition piece to avoid the formation of gas
pockets.

Caution
Adjustment to the operating point of the pump is
to be carried out by the means of a gate valve
installed at the pump discharge line.
If there is a risk of exceeding the working
pressure, a protective device must be installed,
such as a bypass line with diaphragm or a
pressure relief valve.
working pressure = pressure at pump discharge
with zero flow + suction pressure
Installing a slow-closing non-return check valve
will prevent hammering in high pressure
installations with long piping.
Use constant diameter piping.

3.1.4 Installing a diaphragm

Caution
- Q-max-diaphragm
In order to avoid exceeding the permitted flow, a
diaphragm should be fitted into the pump
discharge line (see installation diagram).
This will prevent any danger of operating with
cavitation.

The installation of a relief valve or a


diaphragm in the by-pass piping will ensure
that the required minimum flow for the pump
is present (see installation diagram). This will
provide for sufficient cooling of the pump and
avoid mechanical overloads.

3.1.5 Pressure checking


Pressure checks will be carried out by means of
pressure gauges installed on the suction line and
on the discharge line of the pump (see installation
diagram).

Electrical connections

The connections and the protection system for the


electric motor will be made in accordance with the
requirements and regulations currently in force.

3.3

Accessories

Various accessories can be installed to contribute


to the safety of the equipment.

Doc.No.: CEH03ABE
Rev.: 01
Date: 02/04/2003

Chapter 3

These accessories make it possible to check, for


example:
x The power absorbed by the motor.
A load detector measures the power
absorbed by the motor. If this power is too
high, the motor is switched-off.
x The
fluid
temperature
(PT100).
The PT100 probe is a resistance thermometer
intended for checking the temperature of
bearings or pumped liquid. A threaded pipe
connection is essential for it to be installed.
The switch-off temperature has to be adjusted
10 C higher than the operating temperature.
x The
level
of
the
pumped
liquid.
To protect the pump from a possible lack of
liquid in the course of operation, it is possible
to use a level detector.
x The gradual starting of the motor.

3.4

Pumping of liquefied gases and


condensates

For the pump to handle liquefied gases and


condensates it is especially important that the
design and installation is carried out by
specialists. Incorrect operations during starting
causing dry operation - lead to damage to pump
parts.
Please follow the instructions below:
x The loss of pressure must be reduced to a
minimum in the suction line.
x The suction must not be disturbed by
bends, filter, gate-valve or changes in diameter
x A length of stabilizer pipe must be installed
with a length 10-20 times the diameter of the
suction flange (see installation diagram).
x The available NPSH (net positive load at the
suction flange) scheduled for the project must
allow for a safety factor compared to the
required NPSH.
x The by-pass piping is to return to the tank
and not to the pump inlet.
x The supply line must be as short as possible.
With longer lines, which may be exposed to
strong sunlight, correct insulation must be
provided.

Chapter 3

x As liquefied gases may give off oxides,


suitable filters must be provided to prevent
oxides from entering the pump. These must be
cleaned at regular intervals.
x Degassing piping must be installed between
the flow stabilizer piping and the gas phase of
the tank at the suction end (see installation
diagram). This piping must be 25 to 50 mm (1
to 2) in diameter
x If the pump is to be used for several tanks
with various mixtures of liquefied gases and
different vapour pressures, high performance
non-return valves must be mounted on the
pump discharge end. This is to prevent the
liquid which is being pumped from returning to
the suction end when gate-valves are
actuated.
x When draining several tanks with only one
pump, a device allowing for isolation of the
empty tank must be installed, to prevent any
gas from entering the other tanks.
x Before each start-up, make sure that the pump
is filled with liquid. It is recommended to fit a
degassing lever valve below the outlet valve.
When filling the pump this valve is kept open
continuously, until the liquid comes out.
x In order to check the liquid level, a level detector must be installed to prevent the pump from
dry operation. A special design exists which
makes it possible to add a retention stage directly on the pump (CEH..../7).
x Keep the pressure balance line open at the
end which supplies to the tank.
x When using the pump in explosion hazard
areas, make sure that the various ancillaries
are in conformity with the current safety
standard.
x At pump start-up, the outlet gate-valve is to
remain half open. If this valve is fully opened,
there is the danger that the pump will operate
beyond its specification range and this leads to
the formation of vapour in the pump.

months. Moreover, it is advised to turn the pump
shaft over manually and periodically to avoid any
risks of seizing of mobile parts.

4.3.2 Long-term storage


If the storage duration exceeds three months, in
addition to the precautionary measures specified
in 4.3.1, it is necessary to wash the pump with
fresh water and to re-apply the preserving fluid
every three months. Make sure that the product
used is compatible with the pump materials and
complies with the environmental protection and
personnel safety regulations currently in force.

4.3.3 Lengthy installation stoppage


In the event of installation stopping for more than
3 weeks (this period could be much more shorter

The following instructions for couplings need


especially to be followed for pumpsets which are
manufactured in conformity with Directive 94/9/EC
for operations as category II equipment in
hazardous areas.
Limitations
Only the coupling type BDS and HDS is released for
pumpsets in conformity with 94/9/EC.
These couplings are designed to be operated
according the following parameters:
o Max 25 starts per hour
o Daily operating cycle up to 24 h
o Operation within the specified alignment
o Temperature range -30C to +80C in the
immediate vicinity of the coupling
Storage
If coupling parts are stored as spare parts, the
storage area must be dry and free from dust. The
flexible elements must not be stored with chemicals,
solvents, motor fuels, acids, etc.. Furthermore they
should be protected against light, in particular direct
sunlight and bright artificial light with high ultraviolet
content.

The storage area must not contain


any ozone-generating equipment, e.g. fluorescent
light sources, mercury vapour lamps, high voltage
electrical equipment. Damp storage areas are
unsuitable. Ensure that no condensation occurs.
The most favourable atmospheric humidity is below
65%.
Installation
Type B and H couplings shall never be operated
in pumpsets category II.
The flexible elements are delivered in different
materials and are then differently couloured or
marked with stripes in different colours. Only
elements of one type must be used in one
coupling.
When assembling a pumpset with a coupling,
the fits of the bores and shafts must be checked,

Failure to observe these instructions


may result in breakage of the coupling. Danger from
flying fragments! The coupling then becomes an
exlosion hazard.
Mounting the coupling parts
Before beginning installation, the shaft ends and the
coupling parts must be carefully cleaned. Before
cleaning the coupling parts with solvent the flexible
elements must be removed.
If necessary, heating the coupling parts (to max
150C) will facilitate fitting. With temperatures over
80C the flexible elements must be removed from
the coupling part s before heating.

Coupling parts must be fitted with


the aid of suitable equipment to avoid damaging the
shaft bearings through axial joining forces. Always
use a suitable lifting equipment.
The shaft ends must not project from the inner sides
of the hub. Axial securing is effected by means of
the set screw.

Tightening the set screws to a


tightening torque in accordance with the table 5.C.3.

Failure to observe these instructions


may result in breakage of the coupling. Danger from
flying fragments! The coupling then becomes an
explosion hazard.
After fitting the coupling parts onto the shafts the
flexible elements, if previously removed must be
fitted. Previously heated coupling parts must have
cooled down again to a temperature below +80C. It
must be ensured that the flexible elements are of
identical size and colour or have identical marking.
Move together the components to be coupled.

Danger of squeezing!
Alignment
The couplings connect the 2 shaft ends of the driver
and the pump. The alignment of the shaft ends
needs to be adjusted within the following tolerances.
The errors of alignment are differentiated into:

Axial misalignment: the allowable


difference between maximum and minimum
axial gap S between the two coupling halfes is
given Table 5.C.2.
Angular misalignment: this can
usefully be measured as the difference in the
gap dimension S = Smax Smin. The allowable
values are given in Table 5.C.2 depending on
coupling size and speed
Radial misalignment is the radial
offset
between
the
shaft
centers.
The allowable values are the same s values
like for the angular misalignment given in Table
5.C.2..

The method to adjust the alignment is:


first correct the angular misalignment
then correct the axial gap
then correct the radial misalignment.

Operation:
If any irregularities are registered
during operation (vibrations or noise) the pumpset is
to be switched off immediately. Determine the cause
of the fault using the fault list in Chapter 8. This list
contains possible faults, their reasons and
succested actions.
If the analysis is not possible then contact the
Sterling Service.
Maintenance:
regular control of the torsional
backlash is necessary to prevent breakdown.
The torsional backlash is to be measured in the
following way: One coupling part is rotated against
the other with no torque to a stop. Then this position
of the two coupling halfes is marked as shown in the
left had picture of figure 5.C.3. Then the coupling
parts are rotated into the other direction as far as
possible without torque. The distance between the
two marks is the backlash measure delta sb. The
maximum values for this measure are given in table
5.C.4 by coupling size. If this measure is exceeded,
then the flexible elements need to be exchanged.

the flexible elements must be


replaced in sets (all elements of one coupling at
once, independent of the individual wear) Only
identically marked flexible elements must be used.
Only spareparts from the original equipment
manufacturer is allowed for replacement.

Checking before switching-on

Caution
Before switching-on the pump unit, ensure that
nobody can be endangered by starting the pump
unit.
It is mandatory to check the following points:

Chapter 6

If the pumping pressure does not constantly


rise with increasing speed, stop the motor
again and bleed the pump carefully again.
5. After reaching operating speed, adjust the
operating point of the pump by means of the
regulating gate-valve in the discharge line.

Caution
1. The pipelines are all connected and the unions
are leak proof.
2. The pump and pipes are correctly filled and air
has been bled.
3. The cooling system supply (if applicable) is
open and its system has been bled.
4. If the installation is protected by a relief valve
make sure that its adjustment is correct,
particularly in accordance with the pressure
rating of the pump housing.
5. The regulating gate-valve at the discharge
end is fully opened.
6. The gate-valve at the suction end is completely
open.
7. The coupling alignment has been checked and
is correct (see chapter 5).
8. The coupling guard is in place.
9. The motor is ready for operation.
10.At this point check the direction of rotation
of the motor (short pressure on the switch), the
rotation of the CEHA pump is anti-clockwise
when facing at the end of the pump drive shaft.

6.8

Commissioning

For commissioning proceed as follows:


1. Open the gate-valve at the suction end fully.
2. Open the regulating gate-valve at the
discharge end fully.
When pumping
condensates, only half-open this valve (see
3.4).
3. Switch on the motor.
4. Check the pressure on the pressure gauge at
the discharge end.
Doc.No.: CEH06ABE
Rev.: 01
Date: 02/04/2003

Operating with the gate-valve closed at the


discharge end, even for short durations, is
possible only if the installation is equipped with a
by-pass providing for circulation of the minimum
flow necessary for the correct operation of the
pump. If not, operating with the gate-valve closed
at the discharge end quickly causes destruction of
the sealing and seizing of the moving parts.

6.9

Frequency of switching on/off

The CEHA pump may be switched on up to 15


times per hour.

6.10

Checks during operation

Caution
During operation, the following points must be
checked:
x Constant rotation speed and pressure at the
discharge end.
x The pump runs regularly, smoothly, and
without vibration.
x Check the liquid level in the tank at the suction
end.
x Check the temperature of the pump bearing
(maximum temperature 80 C or 50 C above
the ambient temperature).
x Check the temperature of the shaft sealing
coolant.

x If shaft sealing is provided by a stuffing box, 10


to 20 drops per minute leakage is necessary
and normal to avoid overheating of the sealing
system.
x If shaft sealing is provided by a rotating
mechanical seal, a slight leak is possible at the
first startup; if the conditions allow it, let it run
for 30 minutes so that the components take up
their positions. If the leak persists, dismantle.

6.11

Chapter 6

Decommissioning

When decommissioning the unit, proceed as


follows:
1. Shut-off the motor power supply.
2. Close the regulating gate-valve at the
discharge end.
3. Close the gate-valve at the suction end.
4. Close the shaft sealing coolant inlet.
Drain the pump if there is a risk of freezing.

Caution
In the event of significant leakage, stop the pump
as soon as possible, and check the shaft sealing.

Doc.No.: CEH06ABE
Rev.: 01
Date: 02/04/2003

If draining the pump produces explosive, harmful,


or crystalline products, take the necessary
measures to protect persons and the
environment.
If the pump has to be dispatched elsewhere, it
must be free of any dangerous product.
In the event of prolonged stoppage of the pump, it
must be rinsed and then protected internally with

7.6.2 Repair instructions

Caution
The following parts must be checked carefully:
1. Ball bearing 3210
Since the bearing is lubricated for life, it does not
require any maintenance. Check it for wear
and change it if necessary.
2. Lip sealing ring 4210
If the shaft is marked at the corresponding location, change the lip sealing ring; pay attention
to the correct mounting position to prevent the
grease from escaping and to prevent dirt entering.
3. Stuffing box packing rings 4610
Change the rings in accordance with the directions given in 7.7.4.
4. Shaft 2100
Any pronounced mark on the shaft, at the stuffing
box rings, at the lip sealing ring or bearing
bush positions requires it to be changed.
5. Shell bearing 0241
In the event of severe wear on the shell bearing
0241 (play >0.2mm), carry out its replacement
as follows:
x Extract the worn shell bearing.
x Degrease the bore of the body 1080 using a
solvent. Spread adhesive on the parts according to the instructions of the adhesive manufacturer (Loctite 640 or equivalent).
Cold-press the bearing bush 0241 into the body
1080; ensure that the lubrication groove is correctly orientated (Fig 7.1).

6. Body 1090, 1140, 1141
Body surfaces in contact with the wheel may be
re-machined to a max. of 0.5 mm with a plane
parallelism defect of 10 m in relation to the
mating surfaces. The max. admissible roughness height of the re-worked surface will be Rt
= 6 m. The mating surface of the body 1090
has to be re-machined also, in such a way that
the depth is greater by min. 0.10 mm to max.
0.13 mm (sizes 1200/3100/3600) and by min.
0.15 mm to max. 0.20 mm (sizes
4100/5100/6100) in relation to the thickness of
the vane impellor. Since hydraulic performance is linked to the depth of the bodies, do
not re-machine more than necessary.
N.B.: For multi-stage pumps and for a complete
overhaul, it is preferable to mix new stages
and old re-machined stages to avoid out-ofline keying, losses of efficiency or out-of-line
pump mounting brackets in relation to the base
plate mounting holes.
7. Vane impeller 2350
Re-machining the wheel produces uncontrolled
changes in specifications and interchangeability is no longer guaranteed.
8. Body shell bearings 0242
(Sizes 4100 to 6100 only)
In the event of severe wear, they must be
changed. These shell bearings have to be
cold-pressed and glued with a product like
Loctite 640 or equivalent.

Make sure that all the parts have been


checked and are perfectly clean (mating
planes, faces of the bodies).
Coat all sliding surfaces with molybdenum
disulfide paste, except for carbon surfaces.
Sealing of the mating surfaces on the hydraulic part bodies is done by:
- Adhesive EPPLE 33 or equivalent for cast
iron pumps.
- Soft Teflon cord for stainless steel pumps (
0.75 mm for sizes 1200, 3100, 3600 / 1 mm
for sizes 4100, 5100, 6100).
It is mandatory to ensure that the bodies are
correctly orientated to ensure correct operation of the pump (use the bodies assembly diagram attached). The reference marks traced
before disassembly simplify this aspect.
For pumps which require adhesive, immediately coat the mating faces of the bodies 1140,
1141, 1080, and 1090 so as to allow the adhesive to cure slightly before assembly.

Suction body 1090

Discharge body 1140 / 1141


Fig.9.5

The suction bodies 1090, and discharge bodies 1140 and 1141, together with a vane impellor, form a stage.
The foundry marks I, II, III, IV, are visible on the external sides of the bodies. Assembly is carried out by
juxtaposing the marks with the upper generating line as indicated on the assembly drawing; for this purpose,
use the foundry groove visible outside the bodies. The foundry groove in body 1080 is always located
opposite the foundry groove in body 1090 which precedes it.
CAUTION
If the specified angular position of the stages, as defined, is not respected, pump performance will be
adversely affected.
CEHA pumps can comprise up to 8 stages in regular models.
In models with a cooling chamber or a retaining stage, the latter take the place of a hydraulic stage, so the
pump will be able to take only 6 or 7 hydraulic stages (depending on the case concerned); this fact must be
taken into account when evaluating the desired specifications.

**These limits are not valid for all products or all types of construction. For use in conformity and complete
safety, take into account the existing requirements (standards) concerning the type of sealing and cooling.
Maximum permissible temperature of pumping liquid
The highest temperatures usually occur on the pump casing surface, on the bearing housing in the area of
the anti-friction bearings and on the casing cover near the mechanical seal. A dry running must be prevent.
The temperature occurring on the pump casing is almost the same as that of the liquid handled
A maximum temperature of 80C, if grease lubricated, can be expected in the area of the anti-friction
bearings, provided the requirements for appropriate pump operation are met and regular
maintenance on the bearings is provided. Insulation of the bearing housing is not permissible.
If the pump is adequately filled with liquid, the temperature of the liquid handled in the shaft seal area
should not increase by more than 15C for dead end operation with a single acting mechanical seal.
Thus, the following theoretical maximum temperature of the liquid handled as a function of the temperature
class according to EN 13463-1 is obtained. The maximum operating temperature of the pump as well as the
operating limits of the mechanical seal must be observed (if there is any doubt, please contact Sterling SIHI
or the mechanical seal manufacturer).
