One Large Scale Pump Repair for GLWA — It’s All In the Details
The Kennedy field service team was contacted by Great Lakes Water Authority (GLWA) to diagnose the overloading issue on a 2250 HP motor that runs their largest low lift pump, a Byron Jackson 84HXH. This enormous pump pulls raw water from Lake Huron at 139,000 GPM (gallons per minute) and feeds it into the water treatment plant to become drinking water for thousands of customers.
After a thorough series of repairs, we finally returned the pump to the plant where we assisted with reinstallation
and start up. This happy customer is now back on-line for another 50 years.
