The customer was forced to replace each condensate pump multiple times per year due to extremely high vibration caused by thermal expansion of the pump shafts.
- MagnaDrive proposed the installation of VTX-11 couplings as replacements for the existing rigid couplings. Removal of the old couplings and installation of the VTX-11 took less than one hour.
- Instead of being forced to replace each pump 3-4 times per year, the pumps have thus far not been replaced at all.
- Vibration levels dropped by 70%
- Each VTX-11 coupling has saved the customer approximately $24,000 in maintenance costs since they no longer require multiple pump replacements per year.
