Cat Pumps High Pressure Plunger Pumps Diagnosis and Maintenance

In the high-pressure system, the most important step is to establish a complete regular maintenance, which depends on the different using conditions of each system. To reduce many potential issues occurred, check carefully necessary entrance to the situation and protective equipment before installing system. The following guidelines will help us to make sure the cause and remedy various operating accidents.

Problem Cause Solution
Low pressure Nozzle damage Nozzle replacement
Loose belts Tighten or replace belt
Inlet pipe pieces leak/td> Use PTFE liquid or raw material band to fasten device and hoses.
Gauge failed or inaccurate Check with the new gauge, replace the damaged gauge
Relief valve clogged or improperly adjusted Clean/ regulate relief valve, replace the damaged bearing、valve and O-ring环
Water filter clogged or improper size Clean the filter, choose suitable size of filter and regularly check
Particles in the pump fluid medium Install suitable filter system
Water pipeline leak Replace the water pipeline
Sufficient supply of liquid medium Pressurize Inlet and install C.A.T.
Serious cavitation Exanimate water input situation
Seals aging Replace with new seal repair kit, strengthen maintenance
Inlet / outlet valve damaged ,impurities or too dirty Check filling pressure situation. If lower pressure, please re-pressurize or replace it
Pulse damper Pulse damper failure  
Inlet/outlet valve clogged Clean inlet/outlet valve and components, replace if necessary
The Bottom of pump head leak Hi or low pressure seals abrasion Replace seal repair kit and strengthen maintenance
  Bearing O-ring abrasion Replace O-ring
Water seepage into the crankcase Humid air in the crankcase condensed into water Install protective cover , replace lubricant clear crankcase
  Hi/low pressure seal abrasion Replace seal repair kit and strengthen maintenance
Abnormal sound    
Entrance components Insufficient water supply Check fluid supply, increase pip size , pressurize or install C.A.T.
    Check the shaft key and tighten screws
