How to Restart Your Liquid Ring Pump or Compressor After a Flood
For liquid ring pumps and compressors that may have been exposed to flood waters due to a hurricane, storm surge, or heavy rain it is extremely important that you visibly inspect the machine for damage, and take steps to flush debris from the machine, ensuring that the rotor is not locked up before you restart your process equipment.
To ensure a safe restart, and maintain the reliability and longevity of your nash & garo equipment, the following procedure is recommended prior to start up after an emergency stop.
Never run your liquid ring vacuum pump or compressor dry or full or water, and make sure all seal liquid connections are in place prior to restarting the machine. Please refer to your owner's manual for startup instructions for your specific model. Don't have a manual? You can request a copy of one here.
