Installation

Setup of the pump assembly on concrete foundation

Pre-alignment of motor with the pump

The three requirements


for a conforming
alignment

The equipment, once aligned, must meet the following requirements:


The faces of the coupling holves (1 and 3) must be perfectly parallel.

Spacing
of half-couplings

Coaxiality
of the output shafts

COMPANY CONFIDENTIAL

The spacing (D.B.R.F) between the faces of half-coupling must be adjusted for
disassembly and reassembly without difficulty of the "spacer" (2), while avoiding:
- An excessive clearance in the coupling,
- Any tension or compression on the coupling once assembled
- The spacing dimension must follow the value indicated by the coupling supplier
The axes of the output shafts (A and B) of the equipment must be perfectly aligned and at
360.

Installation

Connection and testing before startup of assembly


Connection of auxiliary
pipes

Connection of different API plans of the auxiliary pumps of the client


network.

Checking of alignment
of equipment

Check again the alignment of equipment after the connection of all the pipes
to the pump assembly.

Connection and
checking of drive
system

Before its coupling to the pump, connect the drive system


and check the direction of rotation of drive system.
For the drive of pumps carried out by an electrical motor, mark the
connections on the terminal box.

Checking of sealing
and lubrication
systems

Ensure that the mechanical seals and their auxiliary systems (respective API
plans) are correctly filled in. Check the levels of filling in of pump bearings
and motor.

Instrumentation check

If the pump group is delivered with instruments, check only the proper
tightening of sensor box on their respective sub-assemblies (bearings, seals,
motor).
