How to Prevent High Temperatures in High-Pressure Pumping Applications

Pumping applications that generate high pressures present a number of unique challenges. Increased pressure can damage the equipment or compromise the process fluid if the operation is not managed carefully. High pressures often lead to higher heat generation as well. Temperatures can rise within the pump and lead to overheating. This issue must be properly […]

5 Ways to Minimize Pump Downtime

Every pump system will require some downtime for general maintenance, replacing parts and making repairs. It’s inevitable you will have to shut the equipment down from time to time. The key is to minimize how much downtime is required. This will increase uptime with a more efficient and productive pump system. So, how do you […]

Improve Pump Safety and Efficiency with Preventative Maintenance

Maintenance is critical when operating any type of equipment. You get the oil changed in your car or truck and you replace worn parts like brake pads and tires. Why wouldn’t you apply the same care to your pump systems and other industrial machinery? You depend on your pump every day.  The proper preventative maintenance […]

5 Tips for Pumping Corrosive Liquids

Pumping corrosive liquids, abrasive materials, hazardous fluids, and harsh chemicals presents many challenges. Corrosive liquids degrade, damage, and even destroy specific pump system components. In addition, certain metals, plastics, and glass can experience significant corrosion when pumping these fluids and chemicals. There are several concerns when it comes to pumping corrosive liquids. First, your equipment […]

6 Reasons Why You Need Proper Pump System Training

Pump system training is critical in any municipal or industrial facility. You need suitable operators to control, monitor, and maintain the equipment. And, of course, they need to be appropriately trained to handle anything involving the pump system. Let’s take a look at 6 of the top reasons why you need proper pump system training: […]

What is a Regenerative Turbine Pump?

Liquid petroleum gas (LPG), ammonia, refrigerants, and hydrocarbons are a few of the volatile liquids and hard-to-handle fluid applications that deserve our attention. These liquids are not only volatile to move, but generally have low viscosities and higher vapor pressure,  leading to cavitation concerns and other pump system problems. Protect yourself and your operation from […]

How to Create a Program for Pump Safety

Safety needs to be of the utmost importance in any operation. Complying with OSHA regulations is a necessity to avoid fines, but oftentimes the minimum standards do not go far enough to mitigate workplace hazards. Making extra efforts to ensure safety reduces the risk of workplace injuries, lowers the incidence of workers’ compensation claims, reduces […]

Improving Safety Conditions in Wastewater Industries with Explosion-Proof Pumps

When it comes to managing wastewater, there are certain safety standards that are important to keep in mind. Most commonly, these safety issues arise when wastewater treatment facilities are located next to a landfill. In these cases, federal safety standards are put in place to protect the groundwater from contamination by leachate, which is the […]

How to Optimize Your Pump System

“…Anywhere from 25-60% of the energy used in an industrial plant comes directly from the pump system itself.” There are many different reasons to optimize your pump system performance. For instance, if you optimize or make it the best and most effective pump system it can be, you will increase the uptime of your process, […]

Industrial Pump Safety Tips

Cortech understands that, for the most part, industrial pumps make applications a breeze when you have the right one. However, when you have a pump that works efficiently to tear apart solids found in liquids, there are many dangers that can come with those pumps as well.
