A presentation consisting of guidelines and suggestions for the condition monitoring of deep draft vertical centrifugal pumps, as well as two case studies:

Case Study 1: Reviewing the root cause and lessons learned behind a raw service cooling water pump which had shaft whipping resulting from loss of the suction bell end and its interference with the with impeller.

Case Study 2: Tracking the story (detection of fault to correction/overhaul) of a 395 RPM single stage 7.55 cubic meter/second centrifugal cooling water pump with an impeller rub at the end of its 40 foot shaft.
