2. Pump should be stored after draining out the pumping liquid and preferably after flushing it with water. 3. A small amount of light oil should be injected in the stuffing box after loosening the gland. For food application pumps, use a compatible vegetable or edible grease. 4. Anti rusting oil or suitable agent must be applied on metallic parts to be stored. 5. Refer manufacturers instructions for storage of other items like gearbox, motor etc. 3 SYSTEM DESIGN AND INSTALLATION 3.1 SYSTEM DESIGN At the system design stage, consideration must be given for the provision of filler plugs and installation of non-return and/or isolating valves. ROTO PUMPS are normally installed in a horizontal position with base plates mounted on a flat surface, grouted in and bolted, thus ensuring firm fixing, thereby reducing noise and vibration. After bolting down the base frame, unit should be checked for correct alignment of the pump to its prime mover. If the pump is mounted in any other way than described above, confirmation of installation must be agreed with Roto Pumps Ltd. 3.2 ELECTRICAL 3.2.1 Electrical connections should only be made using equipment suitable for both rating and environment. Normally the Roto Pump should be installed with starting equipment arranged to give direct on line starting to ensure maximum starting torque. When the motor is being wired and checked for direction of rotation, ensure that the motor is not coupled with the pump. If any wiring or control device is to be fitted on the electrical equipment they must be set in accordance with their specific instructions. 3.2.2 Protection of all electrical equipment should be ensured for minimum safety requirements as per environment and fluid being pumped in accordance with applicable safety rules. 3.2.3 Earthing points of electrical equipments should be connected when the pump is fitted with electrical drives and it is essential that these be correctly connected as per the electrical equipment manufacturers recommendation. 3.3 DUTY CONDITIONS Your Roto pump has been selected based on process duty conditions (such as fluid, flow rates, pressure, temperature, etc.) at the time of order placement. Should any or more of these parameters change at the time of installation of the pump,

ROTO Std. No. RN-10-104-01

INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRESSIVE CAVITY PUMPS

customer is requested to inform Roto Pumps Ltd. immediately. Roto Pumps will study the changed duty conditions and will advise/confirm in writing on the applicability of the installed pump and interest of safety, plant efficiency and pump life. 3.4 ROTATION After installation, should the direction of the pump rotation need to be changed, please consult Roto Pumps or its authorized representative for recommendation/ confirmation in writing. 3.5 GUARDS 3.5.1 In the interest of safety of personnel and in compliance with statutory requirement of various countries, the pump pulleys and couplings must be enclosed with proper guards.

3.5.2 Specific pumps may have auger feed screws with a wide suction flange. If the pump installation requires that these cannot be enclosed, care must be taken to ensure that personnel cannot gain access while the pump is in operation and emergency stop devices be fitted nearby. 3.6 IMPORTANT SAFETY MEASURES. 3.6.1 DOS When re-starting after a prolonged stoppage, always fill the pump with fluid and give a few turns to provide necessary lubrication. 2. Always use a pressure relief device on delivery line for system safety. 3. Use only direct on-line starters for meeting starting torque requirement of pump. 4. Uncouple pump while motor is being wired and checked for rotation to prevent dry running of pump. 5. Always consult Roto Pumps in case of any change in operating parameters, like temperature, viscosity, percentage of solids, liquid composition etc. 6. Always use genuine Roto spares for sustained pump performance and longer life of critical parts. 3.6.2 DONTS 1. Never run the pump in a dry condition even for a few revolutions otherwise the rotor will damage the stator immediately. 2. Never run the pump against a closed inlet or outlet valve. 3. Never use foot valve for slurry applications. 4. Never vary flow rate by throttling suction and delivery line. 5. Never exceed recommended pump speed. 6. Never reverse the recommended direction of rotation of pump without consulting Roto. 1.

ROTO Std. No. RN-10-104-01

INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRESSIVE CAVITY PUMPS

7. Never use local made or spurious spares that look alike but do not meet material standards or dimensional accuracy affecting life of critical components and performance of pump. 8. Care is required when adjusting the gland while pump is running. 4. COMMISSIONING All nuts and bolts, securing flanges and base mounting fixtures, must be checked for tightness before operation. To eliminate vibration, the pump must be correctly aligned with the drive unit and the guards must be securely fixed in position. All the pipelines must be independently supported and use of expansion joints is desirable to eliminate the transmission of vibrations and stresses to the pipelines. When commissioning the plant, all the joints in the system must be checked thoroughly for leakage. If on starting, the pump does not appear to operate correctly, the pump must be shut down immediately and the cause of the malfunctioning must be established before operations are recommenced. It is recommended that depending upon plant system operation either a combined vacuum gauge and pressure gauge, or a vacuum gauge only, be fitted to the pump inlet port and a pressure gauge fitted to the outlet port to continuously monitor the pump operating conditions. It is further recommended that a pressure relief valve of adequate capacity should be installed on the discharge side of the pump. 5. START UP/RUNNING: 5.1 DRY RUNNING Pumps must be filled with liquid before starting (A threaded plug has been provided on the top of the pump housing for this purpose). The initial filling is not for priming purpose, but to provide the necessary lubrication of the stator until the pump primes itself. When the pump is stopped, sufficient liquid is normally trapped between the pumping elements to provide the necessary lubrication for restarting. If, however, the pump has been left standing for a long time or has been dismantled, it must be refilled with liquid and given a few turns before starting, to get sufficient lubrication between the rotor and stator. If the pumping liquid is hazardous, then extreme care must be taken while initial filling of the pump using all safety and precautionary measures. NEVER RUN THE PUMP IN A DRY CONDITION EVEN FOR A FEW REVOLUTIONS OTHERWISE THE STATOR WILL BE DAMAGED IMMEDIATELY. 5.2 GLAND PACKING 5.2.1 The pump is normally fitted with gland packing, which required final adjustment during initial running period. Under normal working conditions the gland rings are to be tightened in a manner to permit a slight drip from the gland. This enhances life of the shaft as well as of gland packing. It is important to note that the gland packing should never be over tightened to arrest the leakage completely. This can lead to excessive heat generation that can cause permanent damage to shaft and packing. Adjustment by

ROTO Std. No. RN-10-104-01

INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRESSIVE CAVITY PUMPS

Iom-01 Issue: 06/Jul/02 Page 5

tightening should only be made when the pump is running. Indication of slight drip from the gland packing will only be evident if the pump is running delivery on gland or with suction on gland with a flooded suction. If the pump runs with a vacuum on the gland, a flushing connection (or greaser) with lantern ring is recommended. 5.2.2 5.3 Where lantern rings are fitted in stuffing box; the flushing liquid inlet or outlet should be connected for proper circulation of the liquid.

MECHANICAL SEAL When the pump is supplied with mechanical seal, it may be necessary to ensure proper flushing & quenching arrangement as per the seal manufacturers recommendations, enclosed with this manual.

5.4

GLAND GUARDS In the interest of safety of personnel and in compliance with statutory requirements of various countries, the pumps are fitted with gland-guards that can be easily removed for adjustment of gland sealing. It is responsibility of the user to make sure that the guards are placed back in position after necessary adjustments have been made.

5.5

PUMP OPERATING TEMPERATURE The surface temperature range depends upon factors like ambient temperature and temperature of the fluid being pumped. If the external pump surface temperature goes above 500C, personnel must be made aware of this and suitable warnings must be issued or guarding must be employed.

INSPECTION 6.1 ADJUSTMENT OF GLAND PACKING The gland packing should be inspected every day after starting the pump. Remove the gland guards to check the leakage. If the sealing is not proper, tightening or loosening of gland nuts to attain the preferred level of sealing must adjust it. Excessive tightening should be avoided, as it would result in excessive heat generation leading to permanent damage of both the packing and the drive shaft. Experienced personnel should carry gland adjustment carefully so that safety of the personnel is not endangered. 6.2 PERIODIC INSPECTION To avoid unexpected failure of the pump, it is important that the pump is periodically dismantled and routine inspection of the pump is carried out as follows:

ROTO Std. No. RN-10-104-01

INSTALLATION, OPERATION & MAINTENANCE INSTRUCTIONS FOR PROGRESSIVE CAVITY PUMPS

Iom-01 Issue: 06/Jul/02 Page 6

1. 2.

Inspection of the pumping elements for wear and tear, after every six months or if the discharge falls below acceptable levels. Periodic bearings and universal joints inspection is necessary to maintain optimum performance. The most appropriate time to inspect is during periods of regular scheduled downtime for routine maintenance or for any other reason.

6.3

LUBRICATION The pump should be inspected periodically for lubrication of bearings to see if grease replenishment is required, and if so, grease should be added in accordance with the instructions given in assembly procedure.

6.4

PERIODIC CLEANING FOR FOOD PUMPS When a pump has been supplied for a food application it is important to ensure that the pump is cleaned prior to initial operation of the pump. The cleaning operation is executed on the pump when any of the following occur: 1. 2. 3. 4. When the pump is first commissioned for use. When any spare component is fitted into the wetted area of the pump. When the pump is used after a long time. When the pumping fluid has bacteriological contamination, cleaning frequency will depend on the pumping fluids properties.

A recommended Clean-In-Place (CIP) procedure is as follows: 1. 2. 3. 3. 2.5% W/V sodium hydroxide for 20 minutes at 80C. Clear water for 20 minutes at 80C. 2.0% V/V nitric acid for 20 minutes at 80C Clear water for 20 minutes at 80C.

These four stages constitute one cycle and it is recommended that this cycle be used for cleaning the pump before commencing the next batch of production. Once the pump has been commissioned the cleaning process will depend on the application. The user should ensure that appropriate cleaning procedure is followed. 7. MAINTENANCE OF WEARING COMPONENTS 7.1 ROTOR AND STATOR The wear rate of these components depends on many factors, such as product abrasiveness, speed, pressure etc. One or possibly both items will need to be replaced, when the pump performance has reduced to an unacceptable level.

The wear rate under gland area of the drive shaft depends on various factors like product abrasiveness, extent of tightening of the packing and speed of the pump. Periodic inspection and maintenance of the gland will maximize the life of the shaft. Replacement of the gland packing or both the gland packing and the drive shaft will be necessary when the shaft sealing becomes difficult to achieve. 7.3 UNIVERSAL JOINT Universal joints should be examined when the pump is dismantled for any reason or for routine maintenance during periods of regular scheduled equipment down time. The joints should be cleaned and renewed with fresh grease before assembly. Use only recommended grease as per specifications in this manual. 8. PUMPSET When a pump unit is disassembled and reassembled, it has to be ensured that the following steps, wherever applicable, are followed: 1. 2. 3. 9. Correct alignment of pump and driver. Use of appropriate couplings and bushes. Use of appropriate belts and pulleys.

EXPLOSIVE PRODUCTS/ HAZARDOUS AT MOSPHERE In certain instances, the product being pumped may be of a hazardous nature. In these installations, considerations must be given to provide suitable protection and appropriate warnings to safeguard personnel and plant.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR RNA SERIES


1. ROTATION The RNA/RNB Series pumps are capable of taking rotation in both the directions but if a change of direction is required, consult Roto pumps or its authorized agents before doing so. 2. LUBRICATION Bearings: Pumps should be inspected periodically to see if grease replenishment is required. If so, bearings should be cleaned and repacked with grease until the bearing chambers are one third full with grease. Use one of the following recommended or equivalent grease. 1. 2. 3. 4. SHELL Alvania R3 BP Energrease LS3 Castro Spheerol AP3 Mobilux 3

Universal Joints: The pin type universal couplings should be lubricated when the pump is dismantled due to some reason. To do so, pack entire space between the coupling rod head and rotor or drive shaft bore with one of the following recommended or equivalent grease, after cleaning the components. 1. 2. 3. 4. 3. Shell Alvania Grease 2 Mobilux 2 MP Grease 2 Castrol Spheerol AP2

PUMP HOUSING ASSEMBLY While assembling the pump housing care must be taken that the pump housing does not rub against the rotor or the coupling rod as the scratches may substantially reduce the life of the rotor/ coupling rod. Also ensure that the rotor is supported at a comfortable height and is not left freely hanging during assembly.

4.

ALIGNMENT OF BUSHES. For alignment of the coupling rod bush in the coupling rod use the marks made on the coupling rod and the bush for alignment of the elongated hole axis of the bush with the coupling rod axis. The alignment is extremely important as misalignment will make the pump noisy and can severely reduce the life of the coupling rod/ bush to the extent of instant snapping of the coupling rod on starting the pump.
