Abstract:

A clear description of vibration in vertical non-clog wastewater centrifugal pumps is needed in the wastewater treatment industry to better understand vibration, its causes, how it should be measured and analyzed, and how its effects can be controlled. Clear and concise guidelines for vertical non-clog wastewater centrifugal pumps are provided for the application of this type of pump that are realistic to suppliers and end-users in the wastewater treatment industry. This is accomplished by providing an overview on how vibration is described, measured and analyzed in rotating machinery showing basic concepts of vibration and also actual examples from industry. The four basic machinery faults are also discussed. Detailed descriptions of vibration sources in vertical non-clog wastewater centrifugal pumps are identified to better understand vibration and how its effects can be controlled. This information is described in a clear and consistent document, providing a critical service to the wastewater treatment industry.
