class X0) to ensure safe and functional installation in
accordance with DIN 1045 or equivalent standards.
Make sure that the concrete foundation has set firmly before
placing the unit on it. Its surface shall be truly horizontal and
even.
Tighten the foundation bolts evenly and firmly after after the
concrete has set.
Caution It is essential to make sure that the baseplate is
not warped in axial or radial direction.
Proceed with utmost care when aligning the unit, as the pump
unit will only give trouble-free operation when correctly aligned.
Non-compliance with these instructions will lead to forfeiture of
all warranty claims.
Channel section baseplates (up to 400 mm wide) are
torsion-resistant in their own right; they need not be grouted.
After fastening, baseplates more than 400 mm wide shall be
grouted up to the upper frame edge using low shrinkage
concrete, making sure that no cavities remain.
Close-coupled pumps
It is essential to make sure that the pump is not warped in axial
or radial direction.
If pump and motor are supplied separately, place the pump onto
the foundation without the motor, align with the help of a
precision spirit level (on the upper flange of the drive lantern),
then fasten.
To align the pump, shims shall be fitted between the pump foot
and the foundation itself; they shall always be inserted to the left
and right of the foundation bolts and in close proximity to these
bolts. All shims must lie perfectly flush. Tighten the foundation
bolts evenly and firmly.

Coupling guard
Caution In compliance with health and safety
regulations the pump must not be operated
without a coupling guard / a guard on the drive lantern. If the
customer specifically requests not to include a coupling guard /
lantern guard in our delivery, then the operator must supply one.
Baseplate-mounted units
After fastening the baseplate on the foundation, the
coupling must be thoroughly checked and the pump
set be re-aligned (at the motor), if required.
Prior to checking the alignment/realignment, loosen the pump
feet and re-tighten without transmitting any stresses or strains.
Caution Coupling check and realignment must be
effected even if pump and motor are supplied
completely assembled and aligned on a common baseplate.

Alignment between the motor and the pump is ensured by the
centering effect between the motor flange and the drive lantern
flange. It must be easy to rotate the shaft.
Caution For MTC V 32-65 please observe the adjusting
dimensions for coupling alignment (see page 31).
Final check
Re-check the alignment as described in the sections above. It
must be easy to rotate the coupling by hand. Check the integrity
and proper functioning of all connections.
Multitec
5.4 Connecting the piping
Suction lift lines shall be laid with a rising slope towards the
pump and suction head lines with a downward slope towards
the pump, to prevent the formation of air pockets.
With short pipelines, the nominal diameters should be at least
equal to the nominal diameters of the pump nozzles. For long
pipelines, the most economical nominal diameter has to be
determined from case to case.
Adapters to larger diameters should have a diffuser angle of
approx. 8° in order to avoid any pressure losses caused by the
formation of air pockets or gas.
It is recommended to install check and shut-off elements in the
system, depending on the type of plant and pump.
Caution Never use the pump itself as an anchorage point
for the piping. The piping-induced forces and
moments acting on the pump flanges (e.g. due to warped
pipelines or thermal expansion) must not exceed the
permissible forces and moments.
The pipelines shall be anchored in close proximity to the pump
and connected without transmitting any stresses or strains.
Their weight must not be carried by the pump.
Caution If welding work must be performed on the piping
when the pump is already installed, the electric
welding equipment must not be earthed on the pump or
baseplate, to prevent current flowing through the rolling element
bearings, which could cause their premature destruction (pitting
effect).

Thermal expansions of the pipelines must be
compensated by appropriate measures so as not to
impose any extra loads on the pump.
Expansion joints may have to be used. An excessive,
impermissible increase in the pipeline forces may cause leaks
on the pump where the fluid handled can escape into the
atmosphere.

Protection against foreign matter
Before commissioning new installations thoroughly clean, flush
and blow through all vessels, pipelines and connections. Often
welding beads, scale and other impurities only come off after a
certain period of operation. Fit a strainer in the suction line to
prevent them from entering the pump. The total cross-section of
the holes in the strainer shall be three times the cross-section of
the pipeline in order to avoid excessive pressure loss across
the strainer due to clogging. Conical strainers with laid in wire
mesh having a mesh width of 0.5 mm and a wire diameter of
0.25 mm, of corrosion-resistant material, shall be used.

Connection to power supply
Connection to the power supply must be effected by a
trained electrician only (see 5.1)!
The applicable DIN VDE regulations or country-specific
guidelines must be complied with.
Check available mains voltage against the data on the motor
rating plate and select appropriate start-up method.
All connections shall be effected in accordance with the
technical specifications issued by the local energy supply
company.
We strongly recommend to use a motor protection switch.
5.5.1 Connecting the motor
Connect the motor in accordance with the circuit diagram in the
terminal box or as illustrated in fig. 12 or fig. 13.
Caution Prior to starting the motor, check whether the wires
are firmly connected at the terminals and
re-tighten any loose wires.

EN 50014 (DIN VDE 0170/0171 Part 1) stipulates that
explosion-proof motors, type of protection IP 54, increased
safety (Ex)e, thermal class T3, must always be connected via a
motor protection switch.
5.5.3 Checking the direction of rotation
Caution On pumps fitted with uni-directional mechanical
seals (seal codes 62 and 63) the direction of
rotation must never be checked with the pump coupled to the
motor. If the pump/motor coupling does not have to be removed,
make sure that the pump has been primed before checking the
direction of rotation.
The motor’s direction of rotation must correspond to the
direction indicated by the arrow on the pump or motor
(clockwise when seen from the motor end; on version D
anti-clockwise). Verify by switching the motor on and then off
again immediately.
If the pump runs in the wrong direction of rotation, interchange
any two phases L1, L2 or L3 of the power cable in the motor
terminal box.

Commissioning, start-up / Shutdown
Instructions for boiler feed applications
Limit values for boiler feed water and condensate when using
cast iron pump parts: pH value ³ 9.0 (target: ³ 9.3)
O2 content ≤0.02 ppm.
These values must be ensured under all operating conditions
before entry into the pump. Max. percentage of fresh water:
25%.
Water treatment shall be in accordance with VdTÜV guidelines
for feed and boiler water in steam plants of up to 64 bar.
The penetration of air into the system must be avoided by all
means.
Commissioning
Caution Before starting up the pump make sure that the
following requirements have been met:
- The quality of the concrete foundation is in compliance with
the applicable regulations.
- The tolerances stipulated for mounting the unit on the
foundation, for shims and alignment have been complied
with.
- The pipelines have been connected without warping the
pump nozzles.
- Electrical connection and relay settings correspond to the
motor rating and comply with the applicable regulations.
- All hydraulic, electrical and mechanical protection devices
have been set.
- The pump has been fully primed with the fluid to be pumped.
- The unit’s direction of rotation corresponds to the rotation
arrows.
- All connections are leak-free.
Caution For installation without foundation (e.g. on spring
elements) care must be taken that all movements
of the pump unit can be compensated, e.g. by fitting expansion
joints in the discharge and suction lines.
Special notes regarding cooled mechanical seals
(seal code 64)
- If the pump is equipped with a cooled mechanical seal, vent
the seal chamber by opening the screwed plug 903.11 by a
quarter turn, then re-tighten.

6.1.1 Lubricants
Grease-lubricated bearings
The grease-lubricated bearings are packed with grease at the
factory (see section 7.2.2).
Oil lubricated bearings
Fill oil of ISO VG 46 quality into the bearing cover (see section
7.2.2).
6.1.2 Priming the pump and checks to be carried out
Before each start-up, the pump and the suction line must be
completely vented and primed with the fluid to be pumped. The
pump has several plugged holes for venting; adequate venting
devices can be used in the pipelines. The shut-off valve in the
suction or feed line must be fully open.
Fully open all auxiliary connections provided and check the
throughflow.
Open shut-off valve ”C” in the vacuum balance line (if any), and
close the vacuum-tight shut-off valve ”E” (see 5.4.1).
Caution Dry running will lead to increased wear on the unit
and may eventually damage the pump !
If the discharge line is equipped with an automatic check valve,
open the minimum flow valve and secure against inadvertent
closing.
Exceptions:
- If there is not enough back pressure in the line prior to
start-up, the shut-off element must be closed before pump
start-up.
- On pumps fitted with a mechanical seal, the mechanical seal
will leak only slightly, i.e. practically invisibly (vapour) during
operation. It is maintenance-free.
- If the pump is equipped with a gland packing, leakage during
operation is normal (see 6.1.6).
Fig. 15
Caution The seal chamber has to be vented when the
pump is in cold condition before start-up. When
venting in hot condition, steam will escape at the vent plug
during the venting process (risk of scalding!) Should it not be
possible to avoid opening the seal chamber in hot condition,
due to the situation in the plant, a pipe with valve (not included in
KSB’s scope of supply) must be installed at the vent hole, in
order to lead the steam escaping during venting to another
place where there is no danger of scalding. Make sure that this
valve cannot be opened during operation.

Multitec
6.1.3 Contact guard
In compliance with health and safety regulations the
pump must not be operated without a coupling guard. If
the customer specifically requests not to include a coupling
guard in our delivery, then the operator must supply one.
6.1.4 Connection to power supply
If the pump is equipped with an electric motor, connection to the
power supply must be effected by a trained electrician only.
Check available mains voltage against the data on the motor
rating plate and select appropriate start-up method.
Make sure that in the case of three-phase motors with star-delta
starting method switching over from star to delta will be effected
at very short intervals. Prolonged switch-over intervals will
result in pump damage.

6.1.5 Start-up
Start-up procedure
- The discharge-side shut-off valve must be closed.
- Start-up must proceed without abnormal vibrations or
noises.
- An automatic check valve installed must open steadily when
the operating speed has been reached, without abnormal
noise, vibrations or increased power consumption of the
unit.
- Open the discharge-side shut-off valve.
- After the duty point has been reached, check motor input
power and bearing temperature.
After the operating temperature has been reached, switch off
the pump and re-tighten the bolts at the connecting flanges.
Caution In the event of abnormal noise, vibrations,
temperatures or leakage, switch off the unit
immediately and re-start it only after the cause for the problem
has been eliminated.
Increased temperatures at the rolling element bearings after
commissioning are caused by the running-in process. The final
bearing temperature will be reached only after a certain
operating period (up to 48 h, depending on operating
conditions).
6.1.6 Shutdown
Close the shut-off valve in the discharge line.
If the discharge line is equipped with a non-return or check
valve, the shut-off element may remain open if there is sufficient
backpressure.
- Switch off the motor, making sure that the unit runs down
smoothly to a standstill.
- For prolonged shutdown, close the shut-off valve in the
suction line. Also close the auxiliary feed lines.
- The shaft seal in pumps where the liquid is fed in under
vacuum must also be supplied with barrier liquid during
standstill.
- In the event of frost and/or prolonged shutdowns, the pump
must be drained or otherwise protected against freezing.
12
If the pump has to remain operational during shutdown periods,
it must be started up regularly for at least 5 minutes (see also
6.3):
- fire-fighting pumps at least once a month
- drinking water pumps at least once in 48 hours
- stand-by pumps at least once a week
(It is better to operate the pumps by alternating daily.)
During these periodic check runs also check the integrity and
proper functioning of the auxiliary feed lines.
6.1.7 Final check
After the pump has been primed, it must be easy to rotate the
coupling/ shaft by hand.
There must be no impermissible leakage at the shaft seal
during pump operation.
Gland packing
The gland packing has been fitted in the factory. Its permanent
compression can only be set after several hours of pump
operation. During this running-in period, gland leakage will be
higher than during normal pump operation. Check the
temperature of the leakage.
Final adjustment of the gland packing is made gradually after
having allowed for a sufficient running-in period, so that leakage
is reduced to individual drops (approx. 20 drops per minute).
Tightening the gland cover too early or too hard without allowing
for a sufficient running-in period would cause a local
temperature rise and insufficient lubrication, resulting in the
destruction of the gland packing, premature wear on the shaft
protecting sleeve and higher, uncontrollable leakage.
For speed controlled pumps or fluctuating inlet pressure, no
gland packing should be used, if possible. Changing pressures
make it difficult to set an even and controlled leakage rate.
Caution Should such conditions occur, leakage of the
gland packing must not be prevented under any
operating conditions. At increased inlet pressure and/or
increased speed, the inevitably higher leakage of the gland
packing must not be reduced by re-tightening the gland bolts.
The minimum leakage rate must only be set at the lowest speed
and/or lowest inlet pressure.
Mechanical seal
The mechanical seal assembly has been adjusted and installed
in the factory. It is maintenance-free. Check the seal for leakage
occasionally.
During commissioning, increased leakage may occur for a
short period of time. If leakage remains high, immediately
switch off the pump and investigate the leakage cause, e.g.
contaminated fluid handled or previous dry running due to
inadequate venting of the pump unit.
Cooled mechanical seal (seal code 64)
If the pump is fitted with a cooled mechanical seal (seal code
64), vent the seal chamber as described in 6.1.1.
6.2
Operating limits
The hydraulic system is designed for pure or slightly
contaminated liquids (max. solids content: 20 ppm). Make sure
that the operating limits indicated in the order confirmation are
complied with.
6.2.1 Temperature of the fluid pumped
The pump must not be operated at temperatures exceeding
those specified on the name plate or in the technical data sheet.
Multitec
6.2.2 Switching frequency
The permissible number of start-ups in a given period of time
depends on the circumstances prevailing in the plant and the
operating conditions. Overloading of the motor may generally
result in:
- an abnormal increase in motor temperature exceeding the
temperature limit of the winding or bearing grease
- premature coupling wear
- reduced service life of the pump components
- irregularities or malfunctions in the plant
To prevent abnormal temperature increases in the motor and
excessive loads on the motor, coupling, pump, seals and
bearings, the switching frequency must not exceed the
following number of start-ups per hour (h):
Motor rating
Max. start-ups/h
up to 3 kW
from 4 to 11 kW
from 11 to 45 kW
45 kW and higher
20

6.2.3 Minimum flows
The pump must not be operated against a closed gate valve.
The minimum flows required are defined as follows.
For MTC 32, MTC 50 and MTC 65, the required minimum flow
for continuous operation is:
t
-10 to + 100 °C
t > 100 to + 140 °C
t > 140 to + 200 °C
15 % of Qopt
20 % of Qopt
25 % of Qopt
For MTC 100, MTC 125 and MTC 150, the minimum flow
required for continuous operation, independent of the
temperature, is:
0.35 x Qopt.
For MTC 100, MTC 125 and MTC 150 an additional, short--term
minimum flow of 0.25 x Qopt. has been defined, which is
permitted for up to 1 hour’s uninterrupted operation and approx.
200 h/year.
The minimum flows indicated for MTC 32 to 150 above are for
single pump operation and will prevent thermal and mechanical
overloading of the pump. In case of parallel operation with
pumps of identical or different design higher flow rates may be
required in some cases, to guarantee a stable operating
behaviour.
6.2.4 Density of fluid pumped
The pump input power will increase in proportion to the density
of the fluid handled. To avoid overloading of the motor and
pump, the density of the fluid must comply with the data
specified on the purchase order.
6.3
Shutdown / Storage / Preservation
6.3.1 The unit / pump remains installed; periodic check of
operation
In order to make sure that the pump is always ready for instant
start-up and to prevent the formation of deposits within the
pump and the pump intake area, start up the pump set regularly
once a month or once every 3 months for a short time (approx. 5
minutes) during prolonged shutdown periods. Follow the
instructions for commissioning (see 6.1).
Prolonged shutdown periods should be avoided in the case of
pumps in material variants 10, 13, 20 and 21 (cast-iron
variants), particularly if the pumps are handling aggressive
water qualities (high oxygen content). In such cases, the pump
should remain filled, and the operation check run should be
performed at least every other day, instead of once a month or
once every 3 months (see also 6.1.5).
In the event of frost and/or prolonged shutdowns, the pump
must be drained and protected against freezing and corrosion.
To drain the pump, open drain plug 6B.
Caution In the case of horizontal pumps, virtually
complete drainage of the stage casings in
installed condition can only be ensured by opening the plugs on
the stage casings (optional). If this is not possible, it is
recommended to remove the pump from the system and
proceed according to section 6.3.2.
6.3.2 The pump is removed from the pipe and stored
Before putting the pump into storage, carry out all checks and
maintenance work specified in section 7.1. Then preserve as
follows:
Drain the pump as completely as possible. On vertical pumps,
this can be done by opening the drain plugs on the suction
casing.
Horizontal pumps with drain holes in the stage casings
(optional) can be drained almost completely by opening the
drain plugs. The pump can also be drained by bringing it into a
vertical position - suction nozzle pointing downwards - by crane
(see 3.1). Turn the rotor by hand. However, the seal housing
must still be drained separately by opening the respective drain
plug.
If the pump cannot be drained completely, we
recommend to dismantle it and dry the individual
components.
Afterwards fill the pump with a water-repellent preservative, e.g.
RUSTELO DEWATERING 924 (producer CASTROL)
OSYRIS DW (producer TOTAL) or equivalent.
Turn the pump rotor by hand several times, to ensure even
distribution of the preservative. Then drain the pump and close
the suction and discharge nozzle.
Exposed blank metal parts must be treated with a suitable
anti-corrosive agent.
Caution If the pump is preserved for a prolonged storage
period with KLÜBERTOP K 01-601 or another
glycol-base preservative, the preservative must not be drained.
In this case, the pump must be completely filled with
preservative for storage. The preservative must be drained
before the pump is returned to service. It can be re-used. Before
re-use, make sure that the water content in the preservative
does not exceed 20%.
6.4
Returning to service after storage
Before returning the pump to service, carry out all instructions
laid down in the sections on ”Commissioning” (6.1) and
”Operating limits” (6.2).
Immediately following completion of the work, all
safety-relevant and protective devices must be re-installed
and/or re-activated.

Servicing / maintenance
7.1
General instructions
The operator is responsible for ensuring that all maintenance,
inspection and installation work be performed by authorized,
qualified personnel who are thoroughly familiar with the
manual.
A regular maintenance schedule will help avoid expensive
repairs and contribute to trouble-free, reliable operation of the
pump with a minimum of maintenance expenditure and work.
Before commencing any work on the unit, always
make sure that the drive unit (electric motor, turbine,
I.C. engine, ...) cannot be started up.
Pumps handling liquids posing health hazards must
be decontaminated. When draining the fluid pumped
see to it that there is no risk to persons or the environment.
All relevant laws must be heeded.
7.2
Servicing / Inspection
7.2.1 Supervision of operation
Caution The pump must run quietly and free from
vibrations at all times.
The pump must never be allowed to run dry.
Max. permissible room temperature 40 °C.
The bearing temperature may exceed room temperature by up
to 50 °C, but must never rise above 90 °C (measured on the
outside of the bearing bracket), see also section 7.4.4.1.
Do not run the pump against a closed shut-off valve for
prolonged periods of time so as to avoid heating up of the
fluid pumped.
Caution: For required minimum flows please refer to section
6.2.3.
During pump operation the shut-off valve in the suction
line must not be closed.
The mechanical seal shows only slight or invisible (vapour)
leakage during operation. It is maintenance-free.
Gland packings must leak slightly (individual drops).
Any stand-by pumps installed shall be switched on and then
immediately off again once a week to keep them operational.
Attention shall be paid to the correct functioning of the auxiliary
connections.

7.2.2 Bearings and lubrication
On grease-lubricated units, the rolling element bearings of the
MTC32 and the non-drive end rolling element bearings of the
MTC50 and MTC65 in design C and D are lubricated for life and
do not require re-lubrication. For this reason, no lubricating nipples are provided on the bearing brackets.
Pump
Depending on the pump version, the rolling element bearings
are either grease-lubricated or oil-lubricated.
Grease quality / Grease change
The bearings are packed with high-quality lithium-soap grease.
Depending on the size and the operating hours of the pump, the
rolling element bearings must be re-lubricated or the grease in
the rolling element bearings must be replaced.

If re-lubrication intervals are short, we recommend to
completely replace the grease once a year. If this is not the
case, the grease fill must be replaced completely at least every
two years. For this purpose, the rolling element bearings must
be removed, cleaned and packed with new grease.
Under unfavourable operating conditions, e.g. high ambient
temperature, high atmospheric humidity, dust-laden air,
aggressive industrial atmosphere etc., the bearings shall be
checked earlier and cleaned and packed with new grease, if
required.
Use a high-quality lithium-soap grease, free of resin and acid,
not liable to crumble and with good rust-preventive
characteristics. The grease should have a penetration number
(NLGI class) between 2 and 3, corresponding to a worked
penetration between 220 and 295 mm/10. Its drop point must
not be below 175°C. The bearing cavities must only be
half-filled with grease.
If required, the bearings may be lubricated with greases of other
soap bases. Since greases of differing soap bases must not be
mixed, the bearings must be thoroughly cleaned beforehand.
The re-lubrication intervals required must then be adjusted to
the greases used.
Multitec
Oil quality / Oil change
Quality: ISO VG 46.
The first oil change shall be carried out after 300 operating
hours, the following ones every 3000 operating hours.
Unscrew the screwed plug in the re-fill hole and in the drain hole.
Allow the bearing housing to drain completely, then plug the
drain hole again.
7.2.3 Shaft seal
Mechanical seal:
The mechanical seal is maintenance-free.
Gland packing:
The nuts at the gland cover must only be tightened slightly. The
gland cover must be at right angles to the shaft. After the pump
has been primed and prior to start-up, make sure the gland
packing is set to allow a larger amount of leakage. After
approximately 1 operating hour, tighten the nuts at the gland
cover gradually until leakage has been reduced to individual
drops (approx. 7 l/H).
7.2.4 Coupling
If the flexible coupling elements begin to show signs of wear,
they must be replaced in due time and pump/motor alignment
must be checked.
7.3

in the reservoir has dropped.
It is important to keep the reservoir two thirds full at all times!
7.3.1 General instructions
Drainage / Cleaning
If the pump was used for handling liquids posing health
hazards, see to it that there is no risk to persons or the
environment when draining the fluid. All relevant laws must be
heeded. If required, wear safety clothing and a protective mask!
The flushing liquid used and any liquid residues in the pump
must be properly collected and disposed of without posing any
risk to persons or the environment.

7.3.2 Preparations for dismantling
Caution Make sure to switch off the pump unit before
starting any dismantling activities. Secure the
pump so as to make sure it cannot be switched on accidentally !
The shut-off valves in the inlet / suction and discharge pipes
must be closed and secured against inadvertent opening.
The pump must have cooled down to ambient temperature.
Pump pressure must have been released and the pump must
have been drained.
Noxious, explosive, hot or other hazardous fluids shall be
drained without posing any risk to persons or the environment.
We strongly recommend to flush the pump after drainage.
Flushing and cleaning the pump is an absolute necessity before
sending the pump to the workshop. In addition, the pump must
be supplied with a cleaning certificate.
After a prolonged period of operation the individual components
may be hard to pull off. We recommend to use a brand name
penetrating agent or a suitable puller.
Under no circumstances use force.
Dismantling must only be carried out in accordance with the
sectional drawings at the end of these operating instructions.
(see section 9 ”General assembly drawings”)
Heavy components must be sufficiently supported during
dismantling. The components shall be marked with their
sequence of dismantling, to make sure they will be
re-assembled in the correct sequence.
Thoroughly clean all dismantled components and check their
condition. Careful examination may help to find the cause for
pump failure, if any. If in doubt, replace the components. Always
replace parts which are subject to wear (gaskets, O-rings,
casing wear rings, rolling element bearings).

Reassembly
Caution The pump shall be reassembled in accordance
with the rules of sound engineering practice.
- Under no circumstances use force.
- Due to their weight, some pump components must be
supported during reassembly.
- Before reassembly, the locating surfaces of the individual
components must be coated with a mounting aid in
compliance with hygienic and safety regulations.
- The properties of new pump components must not be
altered without prior consultation with our technical
departments.
- The parts must be clean and free from shavings or dust.
- Reassembly is effected in reverse order to dismantling.
- The tightening torques indicated must be complied with.
Avoid the use of mounting aids as far as possible. Should a
mounting aid be required after all, use a commercially
available contact adhesive, e.g. Pattex, Hylomar or Epple
33, after prior consultation with our technical departments.
The adhesive shall only be applied at selected points and in
thin layers. Do not use cyanoacrylate adhesives
(quick-setting adhesives).

turn the rotor by hand.
Leakage is normal during pump commissioning. After approx. 5
minutes’ operating period, the amount of leakage can be
reduced by steadily tightening the nuts of the gland cover by 1/6
of a turn. Keep an eye on the amount of leakage and the water
temperature. It takes several hours of pump operation for the
gland to be adjusted completely. There must be a high leakage
rate during the running-in period.
Repeat this procedure every 5 minutes until a minimum value is
reached.

Reassembly of hydraulic system
Reassembly of the hydraulic system starts at the suction end
and proceeds towards the discharge end. It is advisable to
place the pump in vertical position for reassembly. The
sequence of reassembly does not pose any special problems
and shall be realized in accordance with the detailed sectional
drawing and list of components. The components shall be
re-installed in the same place as before dismantling.
A clearance of 0.7 to 1.2 mm shall be set between the last
impeller 230.1 or 230.3 and the balance drum 59-4 (or spacer
sleeve 525.4).
When tightening the tie bolts, proceed as follows:
- Tighten the nuts of tie bolts 905 gently, with the pump in
vertical position.
- Set the pump horizontally onto its feet on the assembly table.
- Tighten the nuts of tie bolts 905 in two steps (first step: 50% of
nominal torque, second step: nominal torque) in the sequence
1.4.2.3.

Gland packing
Before re-packing, thoroughly clean the packing chamber and
the gland cover.
Caution Packing rings must be inserted so that the cut
edge of each ring is displaced by approx. 90° to
120° in relation to the previous one.
Slip the pre-stressed packing rings onto the shaft protecting
sleeve, press home the first packing ring with the help of the
gland cover. Each packing ring must be pressed into the
packing chamber individually, using the gland cover.
On gland packings with lantern ring (for vacuum operation), the
lantern ring is mounted instead of the next to last packing ring
(the last packing ring is located in the seal chamber on the pump
side).

Multitec
Mechanical seals
Caution Mechanical seals are precision components. The
seat ring and the spring-loaded ring must always
be replaced together, i.e. always replace the entire mechanical
seal.
To ensure trouble-free operation of the mechanical seal, the
seal faces and the tools must be absolutely clean. Mechanical
seals must be installed with utmost care.
The contact faces shall only be cleaned immediately before
assembly takes place. They must not be greasy (grease,
smudges ...) or damaged.
Individual seal components such as O-rings made of EPDM
must never come into contact with oil or grease.
Mechanical seal reassembly is effected in reverse order to
dismantling.
When mounting the spring-loaded ring, we recommend to wet
the shaft protecting sleeve with clean fluid handled.
The seat ring and the spring-loaded ring shall always be
mounted by hand resp. fingers, making sure that pressure is
applied evenly, without tilting.
Horizontal baseplate-mounted pump units
Caution On pump versions C and D, the correct direction
of rotation must be observed for mechanical

Sealing elements
Caution Sealing elements made of EPDM must never
come into contact with oil or grease.
Defective O-rings (which have sustained mechanical damage
such as cuts, cracks and deformation as well as changes in
properties from deposits or embrittlement) must be replaced.
Gaskets shall always be replaced by new ones.
If possible, the gasket shall be mounted without the use of
mounting aids like grease or adhesives, unless authorized
mounting aids are used.

- Check O-ring 412.4.
7.4.4 Bearings
Plain bearing
in installation types A - B - E / Ex - F / Fx - V / Vx are re-installed in
reverse order to dismantling.
Rolling element bearings
The rolling element bearings are generally mounted on the
bearing sleeve and tightened with shaft nut 920.2 / 920.6 /
920.7.
They are re-installed in reverse order to dismantling. The
position of the keywayed nuts 920.6 (contact surface = plane
surface with recess) marked during dismantling (7.3.3.2) must
be complied with.
Check the concentricity and face run-out of ring 500.1 with a dial
gauge for variants with oil lubrications.

Fixed bearing
The fixed bearing is the coupling-side bearing at the coupling
end. Pump size 32 is equipped with deep-groove ball bearings.
The other pump sizes are fitted with angular contact ball
bearings in X arrangement (see sectional drawing).
The spacer discs 551.1 serve to position the rotor in axial
direction.
Axial adjustment of the rotor is not required. The correct axial
position of the rotor is achieved by inserting spacer discs 551.1
to a total thickness of 1.6 mm (1 x 1 mm + 3 x 0.2 mm) in bearing
housing 350.1 on the side of the bearing (or angular contact ball
bearings).
Caution On the old versions, the rotor is axially positioned
by inserting spacer discs 551.1 on both sides of
the bearing (or angular contact ball bearings) to a total
thickness of 1.6 mm each.

Radial bearing
Versions C and D are equipped with a deep-groove ball bearing
as radial bearing. (The other versions are fitted with a plain
bearing in the suction casing). The outer race of the
deep-groove ball bearing must have axial play. The bearing is
installed without spacer discs 551.1.
Fig. 42
7.4.4.1 Temperature of the rolling element bearings
Caution The temperature of the rolling element bearings,
which run at 3000 1/min and more, can be 90°C.
Manual temperature checks are not sufficient !
- The bearings only reach their normal operating temperature
after several hours of operation.
- When a new pump is started up, the bearing temperature
may exceed 95°C. After 2 or 3 operating hours it will sink
slowly and level out to a constant value after approx. 1 week.
- A temperature rise may occur after service activities
comprising replacement of the bearings or dismantling of the
hydraulic system.
Should the temperature exceed 100°C during start-up, switch
off the pump and perform the following checks:
- Check whether the unit is correctly aligned.
- Remove the bearings, check grease quantity.
Excessive amounts of grease will cause increased
temperatures.
- Verify bearing type and arrangement (see 7.4.4.4)
- Re-start the pump. Ensure tight press fit between outer races
and cover (fixed bearing).

7.5.2
Repairs
Clearance between impeller 231 and suction casing:
Sizes 32 to 65 for material codes 10,11, 12, 13:
Re-working the suction casing and mounting a spare casing
wear ring as per ZN 1095 and re-working the impeller.
For other pump sizes and material codes:
Replacing the casing wear ring 502.1 with a spare ring as per
ZN 1095 and re-working the impeller.
Clearance between impeller 230 and disc 550.1 or casing
wear ring 502.2
(Sizes 125 and 150):
Replacing the casing wear ring 502.2 with a spare ring as per
ZN 1095 and re-working the impeller.
(Sizes 32 to 100):
Two repair methods are possible:
a) Replacing the impellers 230 and discs 550.1 by new ones.
Quick repair method, no re-work of parts required.
b) Re-working the impellers 230 at the impeller eye by deposit
welding and subsequently machining to the original diameter.
This repair method is used for impellers made of stainless steel.
Clearance gaps between impeller 230 and diffuser:
a) Re-working the impellers at the sealing gaps of the hubs.
Re-working the diffusers and installing an interstage bush as
per ZN 140.
b) Should hub thickness be insufficient after re-working, replace
the impeller or fit a spacer sleeve (see drawing below). The
spacer sleeve must be driven by the impeller key. Make sure
that the load-carrying key length in the impeller is at least 2/3 of
the total (load-carrying) key length.
Fig. 43
Installation and returning to service
Please refer to the appropriate sections of these operating
instructions.
Should wider clearances be found, the parts subject to wear
must be replaced.
Note: Pump performance is adversely affected by excessive
clearances. Losses in efficiency and discharge head will occur.
