5 Installation Tips For A Procon Rotary Vane Pump

Installing a Procon rotary vane pump is a necessary evil. Even though it can be a bit tricky, doing it right makes sure the pump components work well. A rotary vane pump finds wide applications in HVAC systems, laboratory equipment and industrial processes, thereby exposed to extreme pressure and temperature conditions. So, despite the challenges, proper installation will make your Procon pump work better, need fewer repairs and save money in the long run.

1. Use Caution When Unpacking A Procon Pump

Even before you start unpacking the pump and its components, inspect the packaging for any visible damages. If the packaging appears damaged or compromised, document it and contact the manufacturer or supplier immediately.

If everything looks fine, start removing the components one by one. Remove protective materials, such as foam, plastic or cardboard, to safeguard delicate components (end shaft) during shipping. Remove these materials gently to avoid any damage to the pump. Also, before you put the pump in place, check for any sharp edges or bumps. Smooth them out to make sure the pump fits and works correctly.

2. Wear Appropriate Gear

Furthermore, prior to pump installation, wear safety glasses to protect your eyes from debris. Use gloves to shield your hands from sharp edges or chemicals. Moreover, put on dielectric footwear and earplugs to prevent potential foot injuries and if working in a noisy environment, respectively.

3. Ground Procon Rotary Vane Pump

Ensure proper grounding to prevent the risk of electrical shocks and static discharge. Grounding helps dissipate any static charges and ensures a safe working environment. Moreover, the grounding keeps sensitive electronic components from failing.

4. Provide Adequate Clearance and Accessibility 

Allow enough clearance around the Procon rotary vane pump for servicing before installing it. This open space will make it easier to access delicate parts and inspect the pump. It also allows for more timely maintenance and decreases the danger of mishaps due to restricted access or crowded conditions.

5. Secure Procon Rotary Vane Pump

Ensure that the pump is securely mounted or placed on a stable foundation. Use appropriate bolts, nuts and mounting brackets to fasten the pump. This secure connection will limit vibrations and avoid potential accidents. Also, you should consider using Procon 1113 V-band clamp for leakproof connections.
