Remove coupling pins.
Rigidly tighten any driven equipment to its base. Slightly tighten
the bolts holding the driver to its base.
To correct horizontal and vertical alignment, shift or shim the driver
to bring coupling halves into position so no light can be seen under a straight edge laid
across them. Lay the straight edge in at quarter points of the circumference, holding a
light in back of the straight edge to help ensure accuracy.
Check for angular misalignment with a thickness or feeler gage
inserted at the same four places to make sure that the space between coupling halves
is equal at all points.
If the equipment is properly aligned, coupling pins can be put in
place easily (using only finger pressure). Do not hammer pins into place.
If the equipment is still misaligned, repeat the procedure.
Lubrication. Use lubrication procedures and lubricants recommended by
the manufacturer and in par. 11.6.
pump and drive assembly. The method used is prescribed by local command. In
general, records will contain entries for routine maintenance (lubrication, equipment
checks, etc.), as well as scheduled overhauls and nonscheduled repairs. A description
of the work done, the date, and the name of the person doing the work are minimum
entries. Since a pump's condition is best evaluated by comparing its current
performance to its original performance, a record of flow, pressure, pump speed,
amperage, and other test data determined immediately following installation is
Pump Safety. Specific hazards related to operating and servicing pumps
include rotating equipment, lifting heavy machinery, using hand tools, working with
electrical devices, and fires.
Always stop machinery before it is cleaned, oiled, or adjusted. Lock out
the controlling switchgear before any work begins, so that the machinery cannot be
started by another person. Post a conspicuous tag on or over the control panel, giving
notice that the equipment is under repair and should not be restarted. Also note the
name of the person who locked out the equipment.
