“Increased reliability and condition monitoring intelligence gets to the heart of our most important customer requirement -- reduced downtime and equipment life cycle cost,” said Patrick Prayne, product manager, ANSI Process Pumps, ITT Goulds.
In addition to the condition monitor built into the pump, the patent-pending i-Frame design incorporates many other standard features designed to increase reliability and the life of the pump. Features include premium severe-duty thrust bearings that increase fatigue life by two to five times that of standard bearings; dual stainless-steel, bronze-bearing isolators for improved corrosion resistance and contaminant exclusion; and an optimized sump design to improve heat transfer and collect and concentrate contaminants away from the bearings, resulting in longer bearing life.
