Centrifugal Pump Maintenance
Proper centrifugal pump maintenance can extend the life of your system and ensures your system effectively maintains the proper discharge pressure. Some common centrifugal pump maintenance tasks include:
◉ Overfill bearing housing to bottom of the shaft and rotate several turns.
◉ Self-flush pumps – Hand check the flush line temperature to determine flow
◉ Verify the integrity of the pump’s foundation and check the hold-down bolts
◉ Bearing vibration spectrum on all pump and motor bearings
◉ Check the shaft alignment

Rasmussen became my “one stop shop” for ALL my boiler needs. All I had to do was call and explain what was going on and then sit back. Parts were ordered in a timely fashion and Techs arrived when they said they would. Work was always done quickly and second to none! Great feeling knowing I have a company that has my back and has proven it over and over for the past 21 years.

We needed (help with) mechanical projects; welding, boiler, steam, condensate, compressed air, in different areas around our plant. Rasmussen Mechanical Services helped us evaluate our options and save us a lot of time and money to get back on line – ASAP.
Matt StrysonPlant Engineer, Hughes Brothers Inc.
I wouldn’t recommend anyone else… We had issues that other technicians couldn't get to the bottom of so Rasmussen came in and did the repair work and followed up with preventive maintenance.

We get all of our help from Rasmussen. I can call on the phone and talk with somebody and they are local.

Jeremy ChristiansenSuperintendent, Laurel – Concord – Coleridge Schools
You were by far the best outside contracting crew we have ever had the opportunity to work with. The knowledge and expertise was superior. Your guys did an outstanding job replacing our boiler's burners.

Rasmussen does the job right the first time.

I’ve worked in facilities all my life, for 35 years. I would recommend Rasmussen Mechanical because of their outstanding service and reliability... If my boilers break down I know who I’m going to call and who’s going to show up.
David McAteeDirector of Operations, Boystown National Research Hospital, Omaha, NE
I would recommend them to work with other people just based on the quality and craftsmanship of their work. We went from 75%-80% efficient to 92%-94% efficient. A 12%-15% gas savings for the plant.
Conrad BaldwinFacilities Utility Planner, Kelloggs, Omaha, NE
They’ve done a tremendous job for us. Not only are they there to do a job, but they can break it down to layman’s terms, so that as an operator, I can practice what they teach me. We’ve learned from their experience so it’s kind of a win-win for all of us.
Robert StilesUtility Technician, Mars Petcare, Aurora, NE
They do more than what’s expected and we have one contact we can call for many different services.

After the first boiler, we were so pleased with their service and quality that the second one was a no brainer.

A routine centrifugal pump maintenance program not only extends the life of your system, but also reduces operating costs. Consistent maintenance also ensures there is enough maintenance history recorded to identify the source of the problem faster.
Boiler feed pumps provide the boiler with the appropriate amount of water needed to maintain safe operation. The water being pumped into the system may be feedwater, condensate returns or a combination of the two depending on the system.
