What is Pump Installation?
Pump installation can be defined as the procedures or steps required to employ in the placement, alteration, and preparation for the operation of the pump without difficulty. Pump installation refers to the process of setting up and placing a pump system in its intended location, ensuring it is properly connected to the necessary components, and making it ready for operation. The goal of pump installation is to ensure that the pump operates efficiently, safely, and reliably in its intended application. Proper installation is essential to prevent issues such as leaks, vibrations, misalignment, and premature wear, which can lead to pump failure and reduced performance.

SAFETY Guidelines
" A good pump installation improves safety, reliability, and asset life cycle cost."

  • Equipment location (Grade/ Mezzanine) ( Indoor/outdoor)
  • Proximity to personnel / work areas.
  • Prevailing wind.
  • Structural - Borne vibration.
  • Guarding CSA / OSHA Compliance.
  • Ambient Temperature .
  • Drainage ( Leakage) off to a safe place ( Sewers / dikes / trenches).
  • Personnel unobstructed access / egress needed around machinery, piping, structures, start/ stop, instruments, seal, pots,and valves.
  • Ergonomics of PM and PdM activities.
  • Adequate Lighting.
  • Housekeeping simplified.
  • Detectors (eg. LEL/H2S/Fire).
  • Adequate Ventilation.
  • Visible / Audible alarms.
  • Slips/ trips/ falls all hazards removed.
  • Adequate work area ( crane/ truck access) around machinery and building.
  • Signs / Instructions / Labels etc.
  • Noise Level Precautions.
  • Vents and drains piped ( to a safe place) ( Supports / bracing / gusseting).
  • Burn Hazards.
  • Floor Drain locations.
  • Provision for storage of working materials.
  • Preservation hazards.
  • Obvious tripping hazards (raised lip edges / lifting lugs / valve stems / etc).
  • Appropriate monitoring ( criticality ranking / reliability program ).
  • Mounting instrumentation on vibrating equipment.
