Think of any industry in the world where a gas or a liquid is involved and you will find some type of pump in use. A pump is a mechanical device that creates the momentum to move a fluid or gas from one place to another. They can be simple pieces of machinery or complex pieces of equipment. No matter the size or application, pumps will at some point break down.
When a pump stops working, it can be a minor problem or catastrophic. The water pump in your car, washing machine or dishwasher can break down and leave you inconvenienced. If a pump breaks down at water pumping station, on board a sea-going vessel or at an oil refinery, the business can shut down causing lost profits. It can put people out of work and in some cases, can put lives in danger. Keeping a pump running can be an important part of a plant manager's job.
Often a pump can be repaired with spare parts. These can be bought from the manufacturer or an authorized dealer. Sometimes pumps cannot be repaired and a new one must be purchased.
