Water Pump Refurbishment Works

Cost: $46,000

Contractor: Coastal Works

Client: Bellingen Shire Council

Client Referee: Allan Kenny

Coastal Works were engaged to refurbish two Super Titan split case water pumps supplying water to Bellingen via their main pump station number 1.

A noticeable drop in flow and bearing noise was observed in both pumps was indicating they were in need of refurbishment prior to failure. Considering water supply to the township was to be maintained at all times, each pump was removed from service, transported to our workshop and fully refurbished prior to being placed back into service.

All bearings, mechanical seals and wear rings were replaced in each pump ensuring continued reliability. On recommissioning a vibration signature is recorded to help with future predictive maintenance.
