Alignment pump - coupling - motor
Special attention must be paid to the following points when operating the pump, PLEASE REFER to DICKOW NCL maual:
Never operate pump without correctly installed coupling guard.
When maintaining the pump, power supply to the driver must be interrupted and secured against unauthorized restart.
5.3 ALIGNMENT OF BASEPLATE / BASEFRAME ON THE FOUNDATION
Pre-condition for a proper and troublefree operation of the pump is the accurate assembly of the entire unit. Improper installation inevitably results into increased vibrations (6.4.4) and thus, to damage on the elastic coupling and the antifriction bearings. Therefore, the pump should be assembled by specially trained personnel only or by our own fitters. If the pump is delivered completely mounted with motor a careful assembly is guaranteed. After examining the unit on site for possible transportation damage, the following steps should be taken:
Alignment of baseplate or baseframe by means of a water level.
Elimination of unevenness in the foundation by suitable supports.
Checking respectively realignment of the coupling acc. to 4.4 after tightening the foundation bolts.
The proper alignment of the entire unit prior to start-up is the responsibility of the owner only.
