The quality of bearings present in an Archimedes Screw Pump is directly related to the pumping efficiency and profitability of operations. As these bearings are hard to access, a low maintenance and high performance solution is required. In addition, a competent maintenance partner can exponentially improve service life.
As a turnkey service provider for Archimedes Screw pumps in the UK, ECS Engineering Services offers full support for associated top and bottom bearings. Full replacement and maintenance services are available, backed by decades of experience supporting Tier 1 Water Industry contractors.
Lower bearings on Archimedean Screw Pumps are vital to ensuring the continued performance of an installation. To provide maximum service life, ECS offers Landustrie Eco Bearings, which are zero maintenance in operation. Sealed for life and constructed from hard wearing stainless steel, Landustrie lower bearings eliminate the need for checking grease pumps or lubrication lines.
Supplied as standard with a 3 year warranty, the bearings also feature 3 dimension self-alignment, ensuring that the unit can absorb expansions and contractions triggered by varying temperature levels. Bearings can be retrofit to existing installations, dramatically improving service life and maintenance costs.
Traditional lower bearings can also be accommodated, with full refurbishment and replacement available depending on requirement.
Furthermore, ECS delivers complete support for upper bearings. Located near the motor and gearbox, these bearings require periodic maintenance, which can be carried out by ECS. Specialist services such as the installation of automatic grease cartridges can be specified to reduce maintenance demands, while also improving service life. In addition, ECS can specify and install durable replacements if required.
Assessments of bearing wear and efficiency are available for operators, which can inform maintenance or replacement strategy. Ultimately, ECS engineers will work with you to define the optimum bearing recommendations to boost efficiency, increase profitability and reduce maintenance.
