Spooky Sightings!
Goblins, Ghouls, and Ghosts. Those are fun sorts of scary. What's really scary is what happens when you compromise quality and experience. EPG doesn't do that when we design and manufacture our Pumps & Controls because it's what we value. Now beware as you proceed to witness the horrors of those that shall not be named!



These pumps were eaten alive. Yikes!

 


That motor felt the heat snugged up against that cap. Any cooling flow stopped dead. Frightening!

 

Motor lead splices below the liquid surface? Both motors perished. 
Is this a Trick or a Treat?

Boo! Scary Story Time.
 
Problem: A landfill in the state of New York was having to repair their pumps every year. It was found that they were removing the factory installed check valve so that the pump discharge line would drain back through the pump to prevent freezing during cold weather. This drain back at the time was great enough to cause the pump and motor to turn backwards. During wet weather the level in the sump would rise fast enough that the level sensor would send a signal to the pump to start while it was still turning backwards. This caused damage and wear to the coupling between the pump and the motor.
 
Consequence: A coupling wears and the pump will start to vibrate. This vibration will cause the pump and motor to wear faster and faster until there is a failure.
