Aftermarket Pump Solutions

Celeros Flow Technology are able to claim a 140-year history in pump design and manufacture through their world-renowned brands, known today as ClydeUnion Pumps and Plenty Pumps. Our engineering expertise was honed in shipbuilding, before progressing into synergistic applications in the burgeoning oil & gas sector and beyond.

We are committed to supporting our pumps throughout their operational lifetime – which can be in excess of 60 years. This means we not only provide customer aftersales services for our current ClydeUnion and Plenty pumps, but can also act as your lifecycle partner for our many heritage brands: Allen Gwynnes, David Brown, Girdlestone, Harland, Mather & Platt, Plenty Mirrlees Pumps, Pompes Guinard, S&N Pump, Union Pump, WH Allen, and Weir Pumps.

1. OEM Supplier of Choice

System longevity and ensuring maximum return on investment are key priorities for all Celeros Flow Technology’s customers. With this in mind, we strive to supply and maintain pumps that are capable of setting new benchmarks in terms of uptime, as well as specification compliance.

We appreciate that specifying and installing flow control equipment is just the start of the journey. Even the best pump needs regular maintenance to make certain it continues to achieve required performance specifications. General wear and tear, as well as other factors like changing operating conditions, can lead to pumps delivering less than peak efficiency over time.

Our highly adept engineering staff are ready to attend to all your operational needs. Their activities cover servicing and maintenance, parts repair and replacement, the upgrading of pumps to address new process requirements, holistic system optimization, etc. They are also able to identify and resolve potential problems at the earliest possible stage.

2. OEM Parts

Thanks to centuries of engineering heritage across our pump product lines, our long-established brands offer OEM part supply capabilities that have both exceptional scope and effectiveness. This continuity of supply is paramount in critical applications - where parts availability, along with guarantees that the same material specifications and original performance parameters can be adhered to, are essential for long-term compliance.

4. Analytics & Tech Support

Due to our extensive experience, our aftermarket team can offer guidance on when it is best to upgrade or replace pump component parts. This means that high efficiency levels and safe operation can always be depended upon, even if conditions change over time. To assist us in this work, we have invested in a variety of sophisticated analysis methods and advanced software tools. These are relevant from both a trouble-shooting and a predictive maintenance standpoint. Consequently, our customers can have full confidence that their deployed pumping equipment will continue to function as expected.

5. Engineered Replacement Parts

Thanks to our replacement part program, we can address customers’ problems when it comes to getting access to pump components that are no longer readily available. Our skilled engineers can propose an alternative solution that will match or even enhance pump performance levels as stipulated.

The retrospective installation of cutting-edge components and sub-assemblies into already deployed legacy pumps allows customers to benefit from new engineering advances without the cost of total replacement. This approach can keep the disruption to a minimum and maximize the return on investment too.

Raising Pump Efficiency Levels

Raising Pump Efficiency Levels

The largest contributor to the cost of running a pump is the energy that it consumes. So, any factor that has the potential to lower the pump’s operational efficiency will push running costs upward.

There are numerous different reasons why pumps may run less efficiently than they should, which can significantly increase the associated energy costs. Here are some examples that you should be aware of:

  1. A change in process parameters or operational conditions (such as heightened throughput or increased exposure to vibrational forces).
  2. Alternations in the ambient surroundings in which the pump operates (subjecting the pump to higher temperatures, increased humidity levels, etc.).
  3. General wear over time. This can be influenced by the duty cycle of the pump, presence of contaminants in the fluid and numerous other variables.
  4. A change to the properties of the fluid being pumped (such as increased viscosity).

Celeros Flow Technology has access to sophisticated analysis tools, which make it possible to accurately estimate the effectiveness of prospective improvements. This allows different upgrade scenarios to be investigated prior to investment. These analysis tools can not only be applied to our own equipment, but third party equipment too. Such an evaluation can lead to marked efficiency improvements – helping to reduce day-to-day running costs and extending operational lifespan. The return on investment here is very short - in many cases just taking a few months to pay for itself.

Material Upgrades to Prolong Pump Usage

Material Upgrades to Prolong Pump Usage

Universally recognized as one of the world’s foremost pump manufacturers, Celeros Flow Technology are responsible for many thousands of units deployed globally, across hundreds of different applications. As a result, we are uniquely positioned to advisese on potential metallurgy upgrades, with the objective of ensuring that the operational longevity of the equipment involved is maximized.

Case study example:

Excessive erosion on a KSMK pump in an oil extraction plant was having a negative impact on Mean Time Between Failures (MTBF). The pump had been in operation for less than 4 years but was demonstrating signs of excessive wear. ClydeUnion Pumps proposed a triple solution to upgrade the existing BB2 pump, including the application of advanced tungsten carbide coatings to mitigate erosion. Compared to expensive equipment replacement, our solution delivered cost savings for the customer, and the increase in reliability means that maintenance costs and downtime have also reduced.

Rapid Parts Supply to Minimize Downtime

Rapid Parts Supply to Minimize Downtime

Celeros Flow Technology’s pump brands are able to respond to parts enquiries promptly. We leverage a combination of OEM facilities and our network of service centers, plus global supply chain resources, to ensure our customers’ needs are met. Not only can genuine replacement parts be sourced quickly, but proprietary features have also been integrated which allow these parts to be installed in an extremely short period of time, and without the need for specialist torquing equipment.

Hydraulic Re-Design to Address Process Changes

Hydraulic Re-Design to Address Process Changes

Essential to any pump’s operation is its hydraulic performance. This is measured in flow, pressure and power consumed. Celeros Flow Technology’s unrivalled technical expertise means that we are able to re-design any installed unit in order to optimize its operational requirements. In the majority of cases, this can be done by finding an alternative hydraulic setup that already exists (taken from the extensive portfolio of legacy designs we have available). We can also supply fully optimized clean sheet designs, using the latest software tools, if required.

Case study example:

Our US oil & gas customer required a hydraulic re-rate of a third-party multi-stage pump to new hydraulic conditions whilst maximizing efficiency. We identified that the most cost-effective means was to trim the impellers to match the desired flow and restore running clearances back to API 610 standards. The hydraulic re-rate achieved a 20% reduction in operating costs, a 30% reduction in energy consumption and an ROI in little more than 12 months.
