A pump for life
Talking with Inge Hemansen during a break, we wondered how long a pump can last? ”A Framo pump can last as long as the vessel – probably longer. But you need to have absolutely clean
(hydraulic) oil in the system. Even the smallest amount of metal or pollution will damage the system, reduce the lifetime and even cause break down. So, please,use the option you have in the service agreement with us, and send samples of the hydraulic oil to our laboratory on a regular basis. It is like taking a blood sample – the analysis can tell you a lot about the patient’s health. That’s my main message in terms of maintenance,” Inge Hermansen replied.
After a long day with pumps, the participants were given their diplomas and their expertise was duly improved or recalibrated. And in the (unlikely) event something unexpected happens, you can always do what pumpmen and officers all over the world do: Call Inge.
