Service pumps

The pumping heart of plant water systems

At the heart of feedwater, circulating, cooling, condensing, and makeup water systems are the critical pumps required to reliably operate a power plant. Some pumps move high-temperature, high-pressure fluids, while others handle high-volumes in excess of 100,000 gallons per minute.

A key challenge for pump operators is to increase Mean Time Between Failures while reducing energy consumption to meet industry standards, as energy costs can account for 45% of total pump ownership cost.

SKF can help plants achieve reliable, energy-efficient pump operation with an offering that includes everything from bearings to monitoring systems and much more.
