VANE PUMP NOZZLE LOADS

Effective Replaces Section

Piping systems should be designed and installed by qualified personnel only. Improperly installed systems can result in excessive strain on the pump, resulting in reduced seal and bearing life.

Piping Strain
The suction and discharge pipe flanges must be aligned concentric and parallel to the pump flanges. The piping must be supported independently near the pump, and all flanges must match so that no strain will be transmitted to the pump after the nuts and bolts have been securely fastened. When tightening the nuts and bolts, always tighten bolts 180° opposite from each other in an alternating pattern to achieve even gasket compression. Do not draw the piping into the pump by force. The piping system should be designed with sufficient inherent flexibility to withstand thermal expansion without creating excessive forces at the flanges. The piping must also be arranged and supported so that no excessive stress can be transmitted to the pump, either due to the weight of the pipe and fluid, or to its expansion and contraction. Excessive strain on a pump may be the result of: 1. Thermal expansion and contraction of the piping. This indicates improper piping design. Expansion joints or loops may have to be installed. 2. Improper pipe support. Frequent problems arise from indiscriminate use of rod hangers (instead of spring hangers), anchors or restraints used during the pipe installation. 3. Misalignment of the pipe flanges to the pump suction and discharge flanges. The table on the next page shows the maximum Forces and Moments allowed on Blackmer pump nozzles.
