Pump Rebuild vs Remanufacture
SPX Flow, in conjunction with M.G. Newell, offers pump rebuilds and pump remanufacturing on standard WCB positive displacement pumps. These options allow you to get a longer life from your pump and reduce the cost of product ownership.
Pump rebuilds can be performed by M.G. Newell in either our Greensboro or Louisville office. As a SPX Certified Repair Center, M.G. Newell has qualified factory service technicians on staff with over 30 years of experience. We have invested in equipment, inventory and training to become one of a select group of distributors that are approved.
In a rebuild, we pull the shafts, replace the bearings and all wear items. Depending on the amount of wear, we also replace the rotors. Our shop will perform an evaluation of the pump and provide you with an estimate to rebuild your pump. The cost of a rebuild is approximately 50% of the cost of a new pump. The only drawback to a pump rebuild is a slight loss in its original efficiency.
Pump remanufacture is performed by SPX Flow at their factory. In this program, they only reuse four parts: the SS cover, body, gear case and gear cover. The remaining components (see photo) are completely replaced with new, original equipment parts manufactured to factory specifications.
They bore the existing body and make new oversized rotors. This machining is the main difference between a rebuild and remanufacture. When complete, the pump is back to its original performance specifications and has a new 1-year warranty from SPX Flow.
Due to the new oversized body, standard rotors should not be used due to potential damage or failure of the pump. A pump can be remanufactured two times in its lifetime. The cost of a remanufactured pump is approximately 75% of the cost of a new pump.
M.G. Newell is a full service provider of sanitary equipment for the food, beverage, dairy, pharmaceutical and personal care industries. We carry a broad range of pumps, valves, tanks, fittings, and other manufacturing supply needs. In addition to general supplies and parts, we also work with customers to design and fabricate cost-effective, customized systems to fit their space requirements.
Our engineers build sanitary design into every system, from pump carts to valve clusters to batch, mixing or inline blending systems. Our field technicians conduct instrument repair, preventative maintenance, calibration of existing equipment and assist in startup of new installments on-site.
