Liquid Ring Pumps – Expect a Long Lifetime

Liquid Ring Pumps – Expect a Long Lifetime

Samson Pumps has been delivering pumps for industrial applications for decades and the lifetime of liquid ring pumps is impressive

In 1995, the Swedish company Önnereds Svets built and sold the complete vacuum unit for the fishing vessel Danö GG 206. Since the installation more than 20 years ago, the system has pumped 600,000 tons of fish and water. Önnereds Svets fitted the vacuum system with a Samson V15 pump, which has been running without the bearings or shaft seal needing to be changed.

According to Erik Petterson from Önnereds Svets, the excellent lifetime of the vacuum system on Danö GG206 is solid proof of how quality pumps and systems can be designed to overcome harsh saltwater environments, year after year.

Delivering quality is key to our business
“A lifetime of 15-20 years with daily operation is not unusual for a Samson liquid ring pump. Some fishing vessels and vacuum trucks will be equipped with a Samson pump and will go from fleet owner to fleet owner over the years without the pump being replaced. We have seen pumps on vacuum trucks that run for more than 18,000 hours without any repairs or significant servicing. This gives us confidence in our technology and a good feeling every time we ship a new pump to our customers,” says CTO Kelvin S. Jensen. “However, if a pump should break down and a replacement pump is needed, Samson Pumps will be ready to deliver a replacement pump without a long lead time. A short delivery time is simply one of the cornerstones of our company DNA. Every day we strive to outperform our competitors on delivery time and quality. We have learned that these elements are key to vacuum truck builders and fleet owners,” CTO Kelvin S. Jensen continues.
