Is your pump weather protected?

If it is not already, it is important to remember that the cold weather can damage your pump if it is not properly insulated.

Pumps, flexible hoses and all associated pipework should be insulated against the cold weather to avoid the risk of freezing. Here are just a few considerations on how to protect your pump over the winter months:

  • Have you insulated the pump, flexible hoses and associated pipe work for extreme conditions?
  • Ensure the insulation materials cannot become entangled in the pumps rotating shaft
  • Ensure insulation materials cannot be drawn into the cooling fan
  • Do not cover the motor or fan casing. The vent slots need access to ambient air at all times
