Uptime Solutioneering™ in Action

Here’s one example of Uptime Solutioneering™ at work. A global food manufacturer operating 30 Sihi pumps (multi-stage) was experiencing excessive downtime and repair costs in their plant. The cause? Pump seal failure related to the thickness of the product being pumped.

We engineered and installed new seals specifically for this application, as well as diagnosed and corrected additional pumping issues.

The results?

“C&B has saved my company over a million dollars in unscheduled downtime, lack of production, parts and maintenance costs since 2014.” – Terry, Reliability Engineer

Problem: Seal failures on Sihi multi-stage pumps due to the thickness of the product being pumped

  • $3,200/month on replacement seals alone

Result: Over $1 million savings in parts, service and production uptime since 2014
