Why Pumps Fail: Compromised Lubrication Pressure

  • By manipulating lubrication pressure and flow rates, which are inversely proportional values, you can provide pump components with the appropriate lubrication to avoid premature failure.
  • Shell bearings, on the other hand, need low flow rates and high pressure to get a thicker film into tighter spaces, allowing them to withstand extreme operating conditions.
  • Built into the SPM® QEM 3000 Frac Pump, it optimizes pressure and flow for each component.
