This would include switching of main/stand-by units. and add oil as necessary. Units remaining idle should be jogged once a month to prevent the bearings from brinelling and to prevent internal rusting. buffer fluid must be pressurized before suction pressure is applied to the pump.

follow the start up procedures for your desired configuration. Adjust the relief valve on the auxiliary pump to provide 25 psi (1. 3. If an auxiliary lube system is installed. It should run for a minimum of 5 seconds at minimum pressure before the main driver is started. An increase in oil pressure should be observed. Note: Sundyne recommends installing separate bypass loops around each pump for additional operational flexibility. Adjust the heat exchanger cooling flow to regulate the gearbox sump temperature between 140° and 160°F (60o and 71°C). Note: Do not operate the pumps at their peak head capability. Non-operating units should be started/used every 9-12 months on an alternating basis. If the process fluid is near its vapor pressure. Pressure switches and time delays can be used if automatic start sequences are desired. c) After the start of the main driver. Sundyne recommends that separate flow controls be used on each pump to provide a lower minimum flow range than is achieved by pressure control. Approximately one hour may be required to stabilize the temperature. 2. 8. Maximum recommended temperature is 180°F (82°C). Single Operation Start the pump with the suction valve open while throttling the discharge valve. 1. This will ensure that the pump will reach the design flow operating point. etc. a) At the initial startup or after changing the lube oil. Start the second unit with the bypass valve set to maintain the flow above minimum flow. b) The auxiliary system is intended to provide oil before starting the main driver. Controlling the Pump During Startup To ensure control of the pump during start up. oil pressure will be supplied by the main lube pump inside the gearbox. Open the discharge valve on the second unit so that the design flow of both units is maintained. open the supply vessel seal cavity vent so that the pump can fill with liquid.

Entrained gases can cause damage to mechanical seals with the exception of double seals. • Liquid reaching the impeller eye must have enough vapor pressure to prevent the fluid from flashing to a gas in the impeller. centrifugal pumps can tolerate up to 2% of gas (by volume). Resonance in the discharge line can accentuate noise. Two conditions must exist to prevent turbulence at the eye of the impeller. • Proper suction piping. System Head Curve The point of intersection between the system curve and the pump characteristic curve determines the flow or operation for the centrifugal pump. and damage to the pump. primarily when a control valve is located an excessive distance downstream from the pump. For steady flow to occur. operation must be suspended until the cause is determined and corrected. In high speed. The following diagram gives examples of satisfactory and unsatisfactory angles of intersection. see suction piping section. Entrained Gases The head and capacity of centrifugal pumps will be reduced by gas that is drawn in with the liquid. this sound may not be discernable. it will cause cavitation. Continued use may cause damage to the pump. Suction Conditions Improper flow of liquid into the impeller is the most common operational abuse of centrifugal pumps. contact Sundyne for further instruction. If you have entrained gas. single stage pumps. 17 . If this condition occurs. When centrifugal pumps cavitate the noise sounds like the pump is “pumping gravel”. Under normal operating conditions.Instruction and Operation Manual OPERATION & CONTROL Operation of Sundyne Pumps Under normal operation. Experienced pump operators will be aware of jeopardizing factors and their effects. Typical Operation Minimum Flow Conditions Vibration and noise will occur during operation of centrifugal pumps if either of two conditions exist: • • Internal flow separations Recirculation at low flow conditions If the operator is noticing excessive noise or vibration. several factors must be taken into consideration to ensure successful pump operation. which can damage the impeller and inducer. Cavitation can be prevented by maintaining suction pressure at a high enough level and suction temperatures low enough to maintain Net Positive Suction Head (NPSHa) available greater than Net Positive Suction Head (NPSHr) required by the pumps.

When the control valve is partially closed to create system curve E. During internal boiling. At the same time. The pressure in the manifold is set at P1. This is demonstrated on the following diagrams. However. the curve E and lower pump curve B are practically parallel. Since pump B would effectively be deadheaded. Parallel Operation FLOW Figure 10. then flows through pump A and B are A2 and B2 respectively. it is assumed that pump A produces a slight amount more head than pump B. The system curve D could represent a system with the control valve wide open while curve E could represent the same system but with the throttle valve closed to reduce flow from flow 1 to flow 2. The pumps are arranged with a common manifold as shown in Parallel Units Common Valve figure. then pump B would cease to flow entirely. unrestricted manifold connects two pumps at the discharge head. the flow through pump B is indicated as B1. If the throttle valve were closed even further. it could encounter liquid slugging and probable damage to the pump. If a simple. All pumps will see the same discharge head at a given time. pump flow is likely to fluctuate erratically and not respond to control valve position. The lack of a significant angle of intersection means that the system is unstable. will provide only flow 2. Proper selection of a control system can prevent this situation.Instruction and Operation Manual Note: The curve for pump A has a significant angle of intersection with system curves D and E. Figure 9. Pump curve B. if the throttle valve is closed to cause the manifold pressure P to rise to P2. the fluid in it would heat up and boil. The characteristic curves of two pumps designated A and B are demonstrated in the Parallel Operation figure. One pump can overpower the other in regards to head at a lower total flow. the discharge head of one pump is imposed on the other. Since no two pumps will have exactly the same performance. on the other hand. 18 . even with the control valve wide open (curve D).
