Whether you have a pump or blower (regardless of size), our engineers can rebuild/remanufacture your vacuum equipment to bring its operation back to OEM specifications. Our technicians have been factory trained in the repair process of vacuum systems. After the repair or remanufacturing process is complete, each item is system tested to ensure proper operation, OEM specification verification, and extended operation under load. If a pump has been repaired, we run it in a system with a blower to duplicate real world applications.
When testing blowers, we utilize a pump again, to duplicate field applications. All test equipment used in the vacuum system area is factory approved and calibrated regularly to ANSI standards to maintains accuracy.
Underperforming Hydraulics Can Lead to Vacuum Pump Problems
It’s always exciting to see new equipment run for the first time. It’s also a bit saddening to realize that it may never run that well again. Naturally, with continued use, equipment becomes a little less efficient and productive. That is where K+S Services comes in. K+S Services repairs and restores hydraulic vacuum pumps to peak efficiency.
Friction Causes Wear on the Pump Interior
Hydraulic pump manufacturers machine the internal parts to tight tolerances. Lubrication by hydraulic fluid keeps the parts moving and cuts down on wear. Still, there is no type or amount of lubrication that will keep pumps running forever. Eventually, pumps become less efficient and fluid leaks become a serious problem.
Dirt, Moisture and Industrial Chemicals Damage the Pump Exterior
Industrial settings don’t have a reputation for cleanliness. Exposure to moisture, dirt and chemicals is common. Such substances can cause corrosion and wear on the exterior surfaces. Not attending to these problems can shorten the life expectancy of the equipment.
Incorrect or Contaminated Hydraulic Fluid Promotes Wear
Substandard or contaminated hydraulic fluid is a major cause of failure. The wrong fluid can affect the operating efficiency of the pump. Contaminated fluid can speed up the wear and tear of internal components. Purchasing hydraulic fluid from reputable sources minimizes the potential for this situation. Unfortunately, too many people don’t understand the importance of using the correct fluid.
It’s Not Like You Can Just Go Out and Pick Up a New Unit
Hydraulic pumps and accessories have long service lives. They may have been standard catalog items in the beginning but, today, they are obsolete. Retrofitting your system with different units would be costly and time-consuming. The best option is to breathe new life into your existing equipment. That means rebuilding or remanufacturing it to the original equipment manufacturer (OEM) specifications.
Hydraulic pump repair services can rebuild or completely remanufacture hydraulic vacuum equipment. No unit is too large. Final hydraulic pump testing at K+S Services occurs in a simulated real-world application. At the end of the extended test, a supervisor reviews the unit. If it is operating properly and conforms to OEM specifications, the repair is complete.
