components on screw pump

1. Screw pump rotor

One of the key components of the screw pump is the rotor. During the operation of the screw pump, the rotor is required to complete the suction, compression and discharge of fluid. Since the rotor is one of the core components of the screw pump, its performance and quality directly affect the working efficiency and life of the entire pump. There are many types of materials used to make rotors, each with their own advantages and disadvantages.


1) Some of the most common material types used for screw pump rotors:


(1) Stainless steel

This is one of the most popular materials used for screw pump rotors due to its high strength and durability. The stainless steel rotor is corrosion-resistant and high-temperature resistant, making it ideal for use in harsh environments.


(2) Bronze

Bronze is another common material used for screw pump rotors. It is known for its excellent wear resistance, making it ideal for applications involving abrasive fluids. The bronze rotor is also corrosion-resistant, making it suitable for use in corrosive environments.


(3) cast iron

Cast iron is a popular choice for screw pump rotors due to its high strength and low cost. Cast iron rotors are typically used in applications involving low to moderate pressures and flows.


(4) Plastic

Plastic rotors are becoming increasingly popular due to their low cost and corrosion resistance. They are often used in applications involving the transfer of corrosive fluids or in environments where stainless steel or bronze may not be suitable.

Regardless of the material used in the rotor, it is important to choose a quality progressive cavity pump from a reputable manufacturer. This will ensure that the pump is designed and built to meet your specific application requirements and provide reliable and efficient operation for years to come.


2) Several points to note when replacing the screw pump rotor


(1) Select the appropriate rotor.

There are many types of screw pump rotors, and different types of rotors are suitable for different fluids and working conditions. When replacing the rotor, you need to select the corresponding rotor based on the model and working parameters of the original pump. Improper selection may lead to problems such as reduced pump performance and unstable operation.


(2) The pump needs to be thoroughly cleaned and inspected before replacing the rotor.

Because dirt and impurities accumulate inside the pump during prolonged operation, these substances may adversely affect the use of the new rotor. Therefore, before replacing the rotor, it is necessary to clean out the impurities and dirt in the pump, and at the same time check the condition of other parts in the pump to ensure that all parts of the pump are in good condition.


(3) When replacing the rotor, pay attention to the installation position and direction.

The rotor is the core component of the pump, and improper installation may cause pump operation failure. Therefore, when replacing the rotor, you need to pay attention to the installation position and direction of the rotor to ensure that it cooperates well with other parts of the pump and can operate smoothly.


(4) Trial operation and debugging are required after replacing the rotor.

The purpose of the trial run is to detect the working status of the new rotor and make timely adjustments if problems are found. The purpose of debugging is to adjust the parameters and working conditions of the pump to achieve the best working conditions. During trial operation and debugging, it is necessary to pay close attention to the operation of the pump and find and solve problems in time to ensure that the pump can work normally.

In short, when replacing the screw pump rotor, it is necessary to select a suitable rotor, conduct thorough cleaning and inspection, pay attention to the installation position and direction, and conduct trial operation and debugging. Only by replacing the rotor according to the correct method can the normal operation and long-term stability of the pump be guaranteed.

2. Screw pump stator

During use, the stator is one of the important components of the screw pump, and its normal operation has an important impact on the delivery efficiency and service life of the screw pump. When there is a problem with the stator, it needs to be replaced in time. The following will introduce the methods and steps for replacing the stator of the screw pump.

(1) Turn off the power supply of the pump and the pipeline system, remove the screw pump from the pipeline, and place the pump body on a flat workbench.

(2) Remove the stator cover of the screw pump, and clean the stator cover and stator cover sealing ring to ensure the smooth progress of the next operation.

(3) Use professional tools to remove the stator, and clean and inspect the stator and rotor. If obvious wear or cracks are found on the stator and rotor surfaces, they need to be replaced.

(4) Check the sealing ring at the bottom of the stator. If the sealing ring is aged or damaged, it needs to be replaced with a new one.

(5) Install the new stator into the screw pump, and use professional tools to align and fix the stator and rotor. At the same time, note that the gap between the stator and rotor should be appropriate to ensure the normal operation of the screw pump.

(6) Install the stator cover sealing ring to the stator cover, install the stator cover to the screw pump, and use a wrench to tighten the screws evenly one by one.

(7) Reinstall the screw pump into the pipeline system, turn on the switch of the pipeline system, and start the power supply of the pump.

In short, the replacement of the screw pump stator is a relatively complicated operation that requires professionals to perform the operation, and the operating steps need to be strictly followed during the operation. Timely replacement of the screw pump stator can effectively improve the service life and efficiency of the screw pump and ensure the normal operation of the screw pump.

3. The necessity of selecting screw pump accessories

During the use of a screw pump, the selection and use of its accessories are crucial, which not only affects the performance of the screw pump but also affects its service life and safety.

The main accessories of the screw pump include inlet flange, outlet flange, bearings, seals, etc. Among them, the inlet flange and the outlet flange are two important components of the screw pump. They carry the conveying capacity and pressure capacity of the screw pump. When selecting the inlet flange and outlet flange, you need to choose based on the specific usage scenarios and usage requirements, such as the characteristics of the conveyed medium, temperature, pressure and other factors.

Bearings are also an indispensable accessory in screw pumps, which can support the rotation of the pump shaft. Choosing the right bearings can improve the stability and service life of the screw pump, while also reducing energy consumption and maintenance costs. Generally speaking, bearing selection needs to consider factors such as the pump’s speed, load, and working environment to ensure that it can withstand the pump’s operating conditions.

Seals are important accessories to ensure the normal operation of the screw pump. They can prevent the medium inside the pump from leaking out and the medium outside the pump from entering, thereby ensuring the safety and efficiency of the pump’s operation. The selection of appropriate seals needs to be based on the nature of the medium and working conditions. For example, mechanical seals are generally used for liquid media, and packing seals are used for gas media.

In addition to the above accessories, there are some other screw pump accessories that are also very important, such as couplings, driving devices, etc. The coupling connects the motor to the pump shaft, and the drive provides power to the pump. When selecting these accessories, you need to consider their applicable power and speed range to ensure the normal operation of the pump.

To sum up, the selection and use of screw pump accessories have a vital impact on its normal operation, service life and safety. Therefore, when selecting screw pump accessories, you need to choose them according to the actual use conditions and requirements to ensure that they can operate normally and achieve optimal performance. At the same time, regular inspection and maintenance are required during use to ensure that each accessory is in good condition. For example, bearings need to be lubricated regularly, and seals need to be checked for wear and ageing. When replacing accessories, you also need to select the appropriate brand and model and replace them according to the corresponding operating procedures.
