NECO IS PUMPED UP FOR SERVICE

Every skid-mounted system that NECO Equipment Company fabricates at its plant has been serviced, tested and fully documented to assure all required specifications have been met prior to shipment*.

NECO also services all the systems they manufacture and is happy to service systems made by others.


NECO SERVICES INCLUDE:
  • Start Up service on-site, if requested
  • Annual Preventive Maintenance contracts
  • On-site repair services
  • Depot repairs
  • Equipment modifications
  • Laser Alignments (New Service – See below for more information)

COMMITTED TO KEEPING YOUR SYSTEM RUNNING SMOOTHLY:
Qualified NECO field service personnel are always available to perform the following services and repairs:
  • Pump rebuilds - Replacement of bearings and seals
  • Pump/Motor Replacement – Install, re-plumb, and fully test
  • PRV's – Rebuild and adjustment of Pressure Regulating Valves
  • Control Adjustments – Readjustment of pressure, flow and temperature settings
  • Upgrades – Pumps & controls, component replacement
  • Annual Preventive Maintenance – For Boosters, Circulating Systems & Heat Transfer Systems
    (Service includes: checking voltage, current draw, pump alignment, control adjustments & gauges)
With a NECO Preventive Maintenance contract, should any new or rebuilt parts be required following a service call and inspection, a discount on parts and labor will apply.


LASER ALIGNMENTS – NEW NECO SERVICE
In skid-mounted pumping systems, proper alignment is critical to achieving a long useful service life and leak-free operation. That's why NECO now uses the very latest laser alignment technology to insure correct tolerances are achieved and maximum pump life is realized.

Misalignment will cause many problems, among them:
  • Increased forces on shaft, bearings, and couplings - causing premature wear and pump failure
  • Increased friction – creating heat, efficiency loss and extra operating expense
  • Soft foot – causing vibration and failure


ACCEPTABLE PUMP ALIGNMENT TOLERANCES ARE:
3600 RPM 1800 RPM     3600 RPM
Parallel alignment     002" .004"
Angular .004" .006"

Traditional pump alignment methods are not accurate enough to achieve these stated tolerances, regardless of the technician's skill level.

At NECO, all frame-mounted pump packages are aligned at the factory prior to shipment. However, as all base plates are flexible to some extent, they should not be relied upon to maintain their factory alignment. Shipping and installation can often cause pumps to be misaligned. Realignment may be necessary:
  • After the unit has been set level on the foundation
  • After the grout has been set and the foundation bolts tightened
  • After the pipes have been connected and insulated
Accurate alignment is absolutely essential and as part of NECO's Start Up service, alignment is always rechecked in the field.

* Proper mechanical operation of the equipment cannot be guaranteed unless factory alignment has been maintained in the field.
Any realignment, if necessary, should be made by moving or shimming the motor. The flexible coupling compensates
for temperatures and permits end movement of the shafts without them interfering with each other; it will not compensate
for misalignment. Faulty alignment will result in noisy pump operation, reduced bearing life, excessive coupling wear and wasted power.
