SPP Pumps: Re-Engineering of a Large 53-Year-Old Splitcase Pump

A 53-year-old pump weighing 5.2 ton, in a poor state with severe leakage from various locations and with original parts no longer available was presented. SPP proposed to manufacture a complete pump by re-engineering the existing pump, assuring to match the pumps dimensions & hydraulic performance. Using laser scanners and 3D printing, a replacement pump identical to the original made, was engineered without any civils & complicated pipework modifications, resulting in a tremendous cost saving to the customer.
