What Is The Cause Of The Water Leak From The Solar Pump?
- Jul 13, 2018 -

1. Reasons for water leakage from the Solar Pump

(1) When the Solar Pump is installed, the water seal seat assembly is not installed in place, causing the Solar Pump to continue to leak. Since there is a stop (甩) water ring on the Solar Pump shaft corresponding to the inspection hole, when the water seal leaks, the cooling water will be pulled out and dripped from the inspection hole of the Solar Pump when the water seal is in contact with the Solar Pump shaft, thus preventing Cooling water flows into the bearing to destroy lubrication. In addition, when replacing the water retaining ring, care should be taken not to properly seal and seal between the Solar Pump body and the Solar Pump cover, which may also cause the Solar Pump to leak.

(2) The working environment of engineering machinery is bad, which is easy to cause uneven wear of the bakelite gasket and the end face of the bushing; the spring is soaked in water for a long time, it is easy to rust and the elastic force is reduced, which can also cause water leakage.

(3) If the water is forgotten in the winter or the water is not clean, and the temperature is too high when the water is discharged, the water vapor in the cooling system will freeze and condense, which may cause the Solar Pump body to be cracked and cause water leakage.

(4) The machine is old, the parts inside the water seal are worn, rusted and aged, which is also the reason for the water leakage of the Solar Pump. When the construction machinery is parked for a long time, there is no cooling water in the engine, which causes the bakelite gasket to deform due to dry knot and shrinkage; after adding water, the bakelite seal will expand but cannot completely recover the original shape, which will cause a small amount of water leakage. In addition, for newly installed Solar Pumps, bakelite gaskets and cast iron bushings have not yet fully meshed, which will also result in a small amount of water leakage from the Solar Pump.

2. Emergency measures

If the Solar Pump of the engine that is working is found to be leaking, do not stop its work immediately. Keep it at the lowest stable speed and drain the water while adding water to the inside of the cooling system. (Note: When opening the water filler cap, place it above it. Cover the object to prevent the water vapor from being burned.) Cool the engine, drive it for a short time and slow speed, and drive to a nearby shelter to remove it. If the Solar Pump casing is broken and the water leaks, or the internal parts of the Solar Pump are damaged and the Solar Pumping water is lost, the relevant parts may be replaced as appropriate to eliminate the malfunction.

If the Solar Pump is damaged very seriously and there are no repair conditions on the way, the inlet and outlet pipes of the Solar Pump can be directly connected to make full use of the natural circulation of hot and cold water to temporarily maintain the normal temperature of the engine; or use a tube or bucket as a The container is firmly fixed, and then two hoses are taken out from the container, one is connected to the water inlet of the engine, the other is connected to the water outlet of the engine, and the other end of the two tubes is inserted into the container. Inside, the hose should be securely fastened.

If only the Solar Pump housing is cracked and leaks, the crack can be cleaned and then glued. In order to respond to the emergency, it can be mixed with egg white and cement to form a stick to the crack, and it can be used after a few minutes of solidification.

It is also common for the water seal of the Solar Pump to leak water during the construction or operation of the construction machinery. As long as there is no fault such as damage or swelling of the water ring, insufficient spring force or breakage of the water seal, emergency treatment can be carried out. The specific method of emergency treatment is: if the water seal of the Solar Pump is slightly leaky due to poor sealing, but the wear is not too serious, you can lay an abrasive cloth on the glass plate or flat plate to smooth the sealing surface of the water seal; The bakelite water seal can be turned over before use. However, it should be noted that the contact surface on the water cover and the Solar Pump body should be ground to ensure its sealing performance.
